It’s Not the Job You Do, It’s the Way You Do It


Everybody would probably love to be working in a field that they love; however, some may feel that’s just not possible given their current circumstances. If you are currently doing work that you no longer enjoy, try taking the necessary steps to get to where you want to be. It doesn’t mean quitting your current job straightaway, it just means looking for opportunities to monetize where your passions lie. Start planning how you are going to get there.

What new skills do you have to learn? What new places do you have to network? You should, however, perform your current position to the best of your abilities. Be positive that whatever job you are doing now is not forever. Positive energy is essential to shape your attitude. No matter how bad your current situation is or how bad your boss may treat you, stay positive, you will build resolve and show your mind that nothing can get you down.

Maintaining a positive attitude can take you a long way in life. No matter how bad you think your situation is, there’s always somebody that has it worse, much worse in fact. In this world one could make a strong case that many don’t enjoy doing their jobs, but yet they persist on bringing the same negative attitude to work every day which exacerbates the problem. Only you yourself can stop yourself from doing whatever it is you wish to do provided that you of course have the talent for it.

You can continue to meet your present obligations by working your current job with a great attitude, and then in your free time, pursue your passion. Make sure it is indeed your passion, as you will have to work your body harder than usual. But passion is great for the body, the mind craves passion, it will serve to liven up your spirits, you may find it will give you more energy and enthusiasm at your current job, your boss might even want to give you a raise.

Even if your co-workers have a negative attitude, do your best to try and reverse the situation, always put a positive spin on something. The mind works best when you maintain a positive frame of mind. Understand that it’s only temporary till your work day ends and you can go back to working on your passion. But of course your passion shouldn’t be work.
