Do not settle for a job that requires you to check your spirit at the door; your right livelihood calls for you to bring your whole self to the workplace. What does that look like? You speak and act authentically, and value your values more than your paycheck.
When people go to work, they shouldn’t have to leave their hearts at home.
If you are miserable in your current position, recognize that every job you ever had has prepared you for what was to come next.
The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence, and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has.
Hamilton Wright Mabie
No matter how much you may dislike it, your current job is also a stepping stone. Do the best you can do and life will give you the opportunity to be the best you can be.
Making a success of the job at hand is the best step toward obtaining the job you want.
Reframe your “negative” job as a training ground for sharpening your skills, and you will discover hidden opportunities for self-improvement.
Life is eager to prove your limits false.
Choose instead to lose yourself in your misery and you will fail to notice promising circumstances when they present themselves.
You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.

THROUGH GOD’S EYES PDF SAMPLER
Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.
Order it at GodIsLogical.com.
In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?
Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
