Leave the vicious circle, before you become the official protest member of your office / home / Pta / Uni etc., Transform your excuses into action.
Avoid this bad habit, to complain is anything except productive, people who occupy there whole day with excusas , take valuable time from there working day, just look around you ,do you have companions that produce half of the work you do or the other way round ? (hope not) as you go through your day, do you hear, “it’s always me ” “I don’t have time to finish this job” “My boss does not listen to me” does this sound familiar, or is it you that says it, don’t panic, it is a habit that can be broken.
The first step is to acknowledge that we are trapped in this language, (the conversations in our heads) while we do this we only create the same reality, the one you wish to escape from.These phrases hide within a habit of low self esteem and resentment, emotions that can create stress, which eventually lead to lots of different types of illness and sadness.
Do jobs that make sense, the way to start your change is to see your job as your purpose, when you live it this way, it takes on more sense(even if you make screws or clean houses) what this is telling you is I am doing this for myself, not for anyone else , because we spend so much time within our work place, we do not have to live it like a prison sentence. There are three key functions that will help you kick this habit,
1… Give the job a sense of importance, why do you do it ? You have to amplify the vision (who do you help, yourself family children.) 2… Create a bigger circle of friends within your working place, help others (co-workers clients ) don’t expect anything in return, do it for you.
3… Increase your jobs that make sense to you, this will help you to enjoy more your work during 8 hours.
When you start to make these changes you will start to see how you have converted your work place into a learning and personal growth process , where you can also meet interesting people and of course it is making more sense to you and your life.
Of course this will only work when you work with it, it depends on you. The circumstances are not important regarding the work you are doing, it’s what you can prepare yourself for, just convert the situation into you learning and growing. So don’t give into toxic conversations, always talk when you are quiet and calm if this is not possible, leave things as they are and find a new group that is healthy for you. You may find this difficult but usually if one person makes this move the people that share your thoughts will follow and you will live through a working day in a more positive attitude y less stress, you will feel more comfortable and happy.
When we change the conversation with ourselves, we can produce changes within our life.
