What can be more stupid than spending 9am-5pm (or longer), Mon-Fri (or more), 48 weeks of the year (or more), for 45-50 years (or more) of your life doing a job you hate????
Some of these, “Stupid” people even say that $$$ are not important to them?? Really, money can be the only reason you stay in a job you hate, you are not there because you love it, it is stimulating or rewarding!!
Some of these, “Stupid” people also say they are staying in a job they hate to support their family? Really, what kind of life/ career do you want for your family? If you have a job you hate, you will be setting the ultimate example for your kids or your partner, “I am the responsible adult and I do not have the courage to have a career I love. I am in this job to support you”. Your family ends up feeling guilty that you have to do something you hate to support them, you end up resenting them because you are doing something everyday you hate and the worse case scenario is your kids get jobs they hate because they don’t know anything else, they think, because of your life, there is no other option?? Please set the ultimate positive example for your kids and have a career you love, so they do to!!
AND other, “Stupid” people say they are staying in a job they hate because they have to pay the bills. Oh really, how hard is it get out of bed, to go to a job you hate, with the only motivation being to pay money to other people and other businesses to pay your lousy, stinking rotten bills?? How well do you think you will perform in a life like that; at work, as a partner or parent, as a friend? Without the motivation of passion, love, reward, having a purpose and making a difference-the great reasons to have a career you love, do you really think you will be a great employee who gets promoted or paid more regularly??
When you are doing what you love, when you have purpose, when your daily achievements make a difference-YOU will grow as a person, you want to learn and improve, you study because it is exciting to learn more about what you love to do. All of these things make you more attractive, smarter, wiser and MORE VALUABLE!! People want to be around you, learn from you and are inspired by you. You will AUTOMATICALLY earn more, be promoted, make more sales and be more valuable!!
Be careful is you are surrounded by people who have jobs they hate. If you have the courage to change your life and have a career you love, most of those people will discourage you with fear; What if you fail?”, “What if it doesn’t work out?”, “You are too old, too young, too dumb, too uneducated, too fat, too skinny, too tall, too short etc etc etc” to be successful at that career. They are fearful of you achieving your goals because it will make their lives look even more pathetic or force them to stop making excuses for not having a life they love!!
Life is too L-O-N-G to spend 50 years of it miserable and unrewarded!! Stop being STUPID and have the courage to have the career you have always wanted!!
