Are you one who is ready to ride out your time in the endless days of your day job? Or have your the guts toget a life at work you love. The choice is yours. You CAN change this, if you have it in you.
The office walls are the same every day. Your supervisor irritates you. The environment is one where every worker tries to get ahead of the other, but the ladder of success seems to only get to one level – where you’re at.
You know that the only place to go is up, but it seems like you’ve gotten as far as you’ll ever get. You’ve given the job your all, you’re productive and your work is good, but nothing about your job satisfies you. So why aren’t you chasing down your dream job? Why are you still working in a job you hate?
Life isn’t about a routine of day in, day out in some career you didn’t really want. Feeling stuck is an awful one to deal with when you realize you’ve still got plenty of years ahead of you.
Life is about living and feeling alive, so make some changes and realize your full potential! No one is forcing you to stay in a job you hate and no one is holding you back from your dreams – except yourself, that is.
Start by figuring out what it is you really enjoy in life. Do you have a hobby or a passion? Most likely, you’re pretty good at whatever it is you love doing. Have you ever thought of turning that hobby into a dream job that you’ll look forward to every day? You could turn your hobby into a paying career with a little determination and some good focus.
That’s right; focus. Decide what it is you’d rather be doing, and then find out all you can about how you need to get there. Do your homework on whether you need credentials or qualifications to turn your hobby into employment. Find out the steps you need to make that will bring you to where you want to be and lay down a plan.
Keep in mind that you’re not going to get anywhere over night. Miracles don’t happen but hard work, effort, and the right choices to move you forward will have solid results. If you need training, part time courses or night school can let you keep your day job and work towards a new career in your spare time.
Volunteer. Network. Apprentice under someone who excels at what you want to do. Offering free services in exchange for the learning experience can be a great way to break into a new industry or career.
Talk to everyone you know about your plans; the more contacts and support you have, the more it will help you stay focused on your goals and provide opportunities.
Don’t give up. Making life changes takes time and isn’t always easy. You may face some stumbling blocks along the way to a dream job. If you remember your goals and you’ve taken the time to lay down your steps and plans, you’ll be better prepared to find a way around the obstacle.
Obstacles are valuable opportunities for lessons in achieving what you want. Be prepared to face them and accept the challenge of resolving them. You’ll also gain plenty of wisdom and experience while you work towards securing your dream job and a life of happiness and satisfaction.
Believe in yourself. Have faith in who you are and what you can do. Know that you’re the only person controlling your life and believe in your own talents and abilities to make good things happen. The road to success is paved with a good attitude!
Your life is a rail trip, a canal boat cruise or a big jet to somewhere – you choose. There is no right or wrong road to take, as long as you keep moving. Navigating the path is less important than making the trip. Enjoy!
