If you are dissatisfied with what you do for a living, know this: No workplace rut is so deep that you cannot climb out if it. You always have options. The right job is out there, waiting for you to make the effort to find it.
Opportunity is as scarce as oxygen; men fairly breathe it and do not know it.
Your odds of upgrading your work life rest on how you answer two questions: How bad do you want it? and What are you going to do about it?
If you don’t like where you are, then change it! You’re not a tree.
Odds are that a new job will represent a step up in salary, responsibility, or learning opportunities. But do not rule out taking a pay cut or relocating if your peace of mind is at stake.
There is no such thing as can’t, only won’t. If you’re qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes! But you can’t blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people.
When you do land your ideal job, it too may prove to be a stepping stone. As you continue to grow and evolve, so too will the world around you; the work that was once so right for you may give way to an even more satisfying career.
Where your talents and the world’s needs cross, there lies your vocation.
