This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
If a person is not happy in a job choice or position does that mean the person should figure out how to change to become happy in any position, or should the person leave the job/position and find something that makes the person happy with the mindset they currently have?
Hi, and thanks for your question.
I really love this question, and the answer is a bit step-by-step.
First, the person needs to figure out why they are not happy in their current position.
Is it because they can’t meet their financial goals in that position? Is there a conflict with a co-worker or team member? Are the tasks associated with the position not tasks that the person finds enjoyment in?
Depending on the answer to that first question, that person must decide if they want to stay or go. Chances are if the person is not clear why they are unhappy in their position, they will attract the same situation in their next position.
Remember, every obstacle is an opportunity for growth.
If they decide to go, it’s important that they change their attitude around the job and really look at how they can do their absolute best until the next opportunity is manifested.
Some of you may remember me talking about when I first worked on the loading docks in Chicago making $20,000.00 per year. I couldn’t make the money I wanted, I was miserable, and I had a horrible attitude.
As soon as I changed my attitude and did my best in that position, I became aware of a better opportunity that had been right in front of me the entire time, and that opportunity allowed me to go from $20,000.00 per year to $60,000.00 per year doing something I enjoyed A LOT more.
Changing my attitude was the KEY factor in finding the next opportunity. I was making things so difficult for myself.
I see all sorts of business owners doing the same thing, which is why I’d like to invite you to join me for my free training titled, “Stop Making Things Hard!”. During this training I’ll go into detail about the things we do to make our goals so hard to achieve and how we can overcome this sub-conscious trap.
