Many Americans today are dissatisfied with their jobs. Some are underemployed, some unemployed, others don’t want to be employed where they are. The thing that breaks my heart most of all is the fact that we feel trapped. No one should ever feel stuck in any situation; we should always have the power to change our lives for the better. The challenge is, the system isn’t set up for us to find something better or to create something better. So what do we do?
Ignore the system! You can branch off and start your own business. Ask Nicola Tesla or George Washington. Each of us has the ability to create, don’t let that creativity be stuffed under bureaucracy in the work place. I’ve started this blog to help me quit my job. I can be creative with words, so I use them. You can be creative too!
You can also challenge the system. Again, don’t be stuffed under corporate bureaucracy. You have a voice, so use it. Use words of kindness and gentleness to share how you are feeling at work Don’t’ allow other to take your voice.
A little voice in my head is screaming “HYPOCRITE” as I write that last paragraph. I prefer option 1 rather than option 2. I don’t want to tell the people in authority how I”m feeling. Things are the way they are and that’s it…right? I’m not sure. I often tell children that someone can’t fix a problem they don’t know exists. I sit here thinking, obviously the problem exists, one cannot just be blind to the chaos. But perhaps they are blind to it. We’re all just frogs they were in a boiling pot, they could climb out. Or maybe one frog should just jump out and leave all the other frogs in the water to die.
Sorry…that was a really unexpected tangent. The point is, we should spend less time complaining about our jobs and more time trying to make our stations better. We shouldn’t settle because we’ll just be bitter and eat our feelings. Change can sometimes be good, but it always takes a leap of faith.
My encouragement for you today is to take the first step to changing the aspects of your life that you are unhappy with. Be daring, fearless, and courageous.
