It is Monday morning or Tuesday or Wednesday and your alarm clock ticktock its way into your dreamland…time to get up and be ready for work. Yet, you lay in that bed looking at the clock, wishing that the time would just turn back because the truth be told, you really do not want to go to that place of work.
Welcome aboard the boredom ship! You are not alone!
“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have
twenty-four hour days.” ― Zig Ziglar
If you hate your job, you are not alone! In 2013, Forbes released results of employee polls, which they did worldwide. According to the Gallup reports released that year, there are twice as many “actively disengaged” workers in the world as there are “engaged” workers who love their jobs. When they polled 25 million employees in 189 in different countries, 13 % of the workers feel engaged by their jobs! They defined “feeling engage” as having a sense of passion for their work, a deep connection to their employer, and as such spend their days driving innovation to move the company forward. 63% are “not engaged”, meaning they are unhappy but not drastically so. They regarded themselves as “checked out” and sleep walk through their days, and putting little energy into their work. In addition, 87% of workers worldwide who are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces are less likely to be productive (Forbes.com).

“Kate is a classic case of someone who is miserable and yet won’t do anything to change her situation”~Read her story.
Kate is a 45 year-old financial analyst who had just joined one of the largest financial institutions as an executive. Everyone in her family is happy for her, as they believes she truly has arrived and was now climbing the corporate ladder. More importantly, she was now earning high 6 figures. It is two months into the job and Kate hates it! She hates the environment; she hates the people she works for! She just hates everything about it. For the first time in Kate’s life, she truly believe she had made the wrong choice of joining this institution. She goes in to work constantly doubting her own abilities, something she’d never one before. Kate feels like a misfit,. she knows she is disconnected, and she cries every time she steps into the building. One day, I stumbled upon Kate and asked her what the problem was. She explained her misery and more importantly her dilemma~ she already feels stuck because all of her friends and family particularly her husband feels she got a “great gig” and she just needed to tough it out! She on the other hand has concluded she would be happier doing something else.
Bottomline, the decision was hers to make! Sadly, she is yet to make the decision. Kate comes to work with one ailment or the other day in and day out. She tells me she has decided to just accept this is her cross in life, as no one in her family supports her leaving the job for another one she believes she would be happier in.
Are you in the same boat like Kate? Here is a truth I would like you to consider, Warriors tell the truth about their situation. They face it head-on and do whatever it takes to quench the fire of misery in their lives.
I always ask my clients this pivotal question as they make up their minds what they need to be doing.. if you die today, will your position at the place of work remain empty because of their loyalty to the company while you were alive or would they fill it as promptly as possible.
Are you feeling any of these symptoms? If so, it is time to take a very close look at what you are doing and make a bold decision:
(1). Will I continue to stay where I am and be miserable for the rest of my work life or will I take the plunge and do what I truly know I am called to do?
Here are some of the benefits of doing what you love:
Doing what you love allows you to make a huge impact in the world. You become part of the “elect” group who change their world by sharing their gifts/talents with the world. Not only that, they immerse wealth and are successful as they share their expertise with the world.
There is an incredible amount of power in living ones’ genius out! You are content, void of fear of failure, full of energy, and ready to take on the world with boldness and confidence. Many of us do desire to make a difference in the world. Without figuring this part out, it will be virtually impossible to help someone else.
The best way to get ride of being sick from your job is to reduce stress!
