While the online world is bombarding you with messages of all these people who have kicked off the year with a bang and are achieving greatness, you may be quietly dissatisfied with your lot.
For some, work/life is “so frustrating, I think I hate it”.
For others it’s even worse: it’s “yeah it’s alright”: mediocre, slowly sucking the life out of you. It’s OK enough that you don’t do anything about it.
Why its good if you hate your job.
Yes, we are supposed to love our jobs, and make our work our passion. But on the other end of this high energy spectrum frustration and hate. And if this is what you feel, then this is good news!
Why? Because we get highly motivated when we experience pain. Humans are just wired that way.
So if you hate your job, then there’s a good chance that you are already doing something about it: looking for a new job, working with a coach to create what you want, developing yourself etc.
If you are keeping yourself busy and avoiding, then you’re not really doing anything about it. and sooner or later something will explode. Take action: have a chat with me. Whether we work together or not, we can get you out of avoiding mode.
But it’s not the haters that I’m talking to in this post.
It’s you. The “work’s alright, life’s alright” people.
You, with the “mild dissatisfaction”.
You, the one who thinks something better will come along (in work, relationship, in life).
You there, kind of comfortable, can’t complain.
When was the last time you really allowed yourself to want something? and want it with your whole heart, mind, and soul?
When did you last feel so alive that you were buzzing with the excitement and anxiety of it?
When did you last play so big that you were ecstatic and terrified at the same time?
Maybe you kinda hate your job/life etc, not because it’s so bad, but because you are playing so small.
