One of the common problems in society today is hatred of one’s job. Alas, in most cases, people work solely to make money, ignoring their own preferences and interests. Examples could be anyone: miners who take risks because there is simply nowhere else to go; cash collectors who put their lives in danger because of someone else’s large sums of money, etc.
Of course, there are people who at first come to work as if on a holiday. But over the years, becoming accustomed to the monotony of their work, it just involuntarily ceases to interest them. So why do we continue to hold on to a job we don’t like without even trying to look for something new? There are a lot of factors. It can be a good team, a comfortable schedule, a habit, a close atmosphere.
Society can be divided into two parts: people who do not like what they do, and their complete opposite.
In choosing their path, everyone tries to do so in a meaningful way. Another question is that everyone thinks about the future life in his own way. Many people initially go where they will have to pay less for training, or it is just easier to study, and they do not have to go to classes. Nothing worthwhile will come out of such people. It is they then, not liking their work, go there every day, just because there is nowhere else.
Of course, you can not measure everything by the same yardstick, there are people who simply got under the vortex of life’s circumstances. And let there is no other way out, you have to try to love your job, remembering that, working without a desire and interest, it will not work.
Now let’s turn to another category of the population — people who carefully consider their own destiny. Constant learning, downs and ups — all this shows up in the path of a person who perseveres toward his goal. But if he does go through all the thorns with his head held high, perceiving each failure as part of the path to success — he will definitely achieve it.
Yes, life teaches us that everything cannot be cloudless, and it makes no sense to put on «rose-colored glasses». But, nevertheless, people who choose an occupation to their liking, for the most part, remain happy with the choice.
Some believe that even if you always do what you love, over time, it too becomes boring. Yes, it’s possible, because the interests over the years may change. But do not forget, if you do what you love, you’re sure to improve, to look for something new, something that previously did not even know.
Remember, anyone engaged in a particular field of activity can become in demand. And what better way for an employee to do that? Many contribute to a particular profession and try to prove themselves by achieving some kind of success.
In the race to increase interest in his personality, new talents are discovered, and the respect and interest of the team emboldens the person, he understands his need. And now he will go to work with a desire to achieve something new, to prove something. After all, there is nothing more pleasant than the awareness of one’s own importance. Another thing is when a person considers his work as aimless — that’s when any self-confidence is lost.
Watching various TV shows such as «X-Factor», «Master-Chef», one can notice that adults, who have worked most of their lives in some opposite sphere, participating in such projects, hope to fulfill their dreams.
Most often, the heroes are over 30, but they are not afraid of radical changes, in fact — they are ready for them! After all, if you spend your whole life doing something you don’t like, then you will realize the pointlessness of such an existence. A person goes to work to earn money, and at the end of his life regrets that he never tried to do what he likes. Life is one, and you need to succeed in it, you need to go forward, fearing nothing, to new heights and challenges, defending their right to do what they love.
But if you still can not change the place of his work, you have to love it. There are hundreds of ways, the main thing — somewhere to start.
First — try to find in your work pluses. For example, a schoolteacher may hate his job because he does not like children. And if you find in the learning process something interesting for yourself? Children draw information from everywhere and tell it to each other.
By talking to children, the teacher also learns something, and in this way, he or she is exposed to new trends in youth culture. Is that a bad thing? All work improves our skills, teaches us something. Any business is interesting if you understand it. To begin with you just have to try to show interest, and then you’ll probably succeed.
The second thing is the team. If you have a strained relationship with the team, try to correct this. Find a common language, mutual interest with colleagues. This can be a joint sporting activity after work or a trip to a picnic — informal communication is sure to be fruitful on the relationship. And in a cohesive team and work easier.
If one of your colleagues is clearly competing with you, do not get upset and worry more than necessary. But rather perceive it as an additional incentive to surpass not only yourself but also this person, respectively, to gain recognition and achieve more. Based on this, you can identify another way to get passionate about your work, namely.
Competition and rivalry. But not with fights and threats, but engaging, exciting competition. After all, defeating others is just another reason for you to rise from your knees and reach the top of your abilities. In competition, you can uncover data in yourself that you didn’t know you had before, learn to do something you never would have thought to do before.
Waking up in the morning, and going to his «favorite» work, many often think: «how I do not want to go there. Immediately forget such thoughts. Remember, every new day is a new opportunity to achieve something, to discover something new in yourself and the world around you. Perhaps on this day you will realize what you lacked for happiness, and find a way to fix it.
If you still feel that you’re wasting years of your life, go ahead and look for a new job. Improve yourself, look for yourself, discover something new and unexplored, but love what you do, take an interest in it, communicate with people who also love it. It all depends on the desire.
If there is a desire, there is bound to be a source of strength and inspiration. Don’t be afraid to arrange your life, it’s too short to do what you don’t like. The only chance to figure out what you like better is to try your hand at everything. Have you tried it? Got it? Now do it!
