Do you know the first step in building a satisfying career? You have to believe it’s possible and that you can tap into that kind of abundance. Through the work you do every day, you demonstrate what you are willing to focus on. Finding work to focus on that meshes superbly with your natural gifts and what you are deeply interested in maximizes your personal power, creativity, and freedom…and feels extremely satisfying. When you are satisfied with your work, it fuels your health and your relationships and juices the rest of your life.
Does that sound worth it? It sure does to me! Start to notice all the people who enjoy what they do for a living. It’s is a whole other level to observe. At first it may be very easy to notice all those who are dreading and complaining about their work. Just assume they are doing the best they can and that they don’t mean to hamper you. Then move your attention elsewhere. Careful that you are not being rude, just move your attention gently towards noticing something more positive. If you can do that, you are not only helping yourself, you are helping them in an indirect way. It goes a little against the grain and may not feel like a nice thing to do at first. By not encouraging them to continue their old story, they might find the room to create a new one. You certainly will be creating a new, more positive story about your work.
