Maybe you feel stuck, with no hope of a promotion and no skill sets to find a better one. You're not alone, 57% of people are unhappy with their jobs! Many people feel this way because people feel underpaid and have no room for growth. Our society is so focused on whether or not something satisfies them, but they don't know how to find satisfaction in what they're doing. They see boredom presented as an acceptable reason to leave a job. So, guess what? Soon they complain about being bored at work! One thing leads to another, and the next thing you know, they are completely dissatisfied and miserable in their job. Yes, this employee who was once a hard worker and very happy at their job is now convinced he or she is in a "dead-end job."One career "expert" told Forbes magazine, "A dead-end job is one where you don't see any opportunity for growth, or where an everyday task seems like a burden instead of an achievement, or where there is no appreciation or acknowledgement for your work. "REALLY??? HELLO!!! Wake up!If you are waiting for the opportunity to grow to come knocking on your door, you've got a problem. If you don't see any opportunity for growth in your current position, then guess what… Your job is not the dead-end. YOU ARE!
Key advice: prosper where you are planted!
The truth is, no matter what your job is, there is always room for growth. There is always the opportunity to improve. If you are bored in your job, don't go looking for another job! Look for new skills you can learn and new needs you can fill inside of your current company. If you feel like you are underpaid or under-appreciated, don't walk away! Look for ways to increase your value. You must prosper where you're planted. I know it's easy to think if you just had that perfect job or if you married that perfect person or if you had the perfect kids, you wouldn't have any of the problems you're facing right now. But the truth is, none of that stuff really matters. It wouldn't matter if you had the perfect job… If you are not looking for satisfaction, you will not be satisfied. So it all comes down to this: Find satisfaction in your work. When you work with excellence and diligence, and when you are invested into your company, you will find satisfaction.
