Many people feel stressed about their work situation. They may feel undervalued, frustrated at the lack of appreciation or opportunity to progress but trapped because of their personal circumstances. Many people complain at feeling increasingly as if they are on a treadmill. They feel capable of achieving far more in their career, if only they had the chance. Let's look at some of the possible options in these situations.
It's important to feel useful and satisfied in your work. Most people spend more time at work than anywhere else. The truth is, some people are more ambitious than others. Not everyone wants to be a managing director or senior executive and some people are content to do the same tasks day in, day out. Respecting each person's circumstances in important.
Some ways to improve your work situation:
- Decide to commit fully to your present role. Many people complain about work, say that they would love to leave and retire or do something else but are trapped by the need for a regular income. People who do leave their jobs often find that they soon replace one occupation with another. They may start a new business, undergo training, volunteer, but many people find it important to fill their days with activity.
- Appreciate the fact that you are fortunate enough to have a job, have work that keeps you occupied, gives you a role in life. This attitude can turn a negative viewpoint into a more positive way of thinking. Starting now, be the best you can be, whether you are sweeping roads or doing brain surgery. This mindset encourages a sense of pride and satisfaction in your daily efforts and accomplishments.
- Acknowledge that work provides more than income. It provides a structure to your days, gives a reason to get up in the morning, have a shower, be smart and presentable. Many people value the social element of their job, the interaction with others and camaraderie, the team dynamic.
- Take responsibility for improving your situation. Is there potential for training, changing your role, an opportunity for more responsibility, perhaps the chance of a secondment elsewhere. If your company offers staff appraisals tell your manager that you want a more challenging role, are keen to develop and improve. Even if there are no immediate opportunities at least you have indicated your willingness to progress.
- If you have no choice but to continue in your present work situation why not look at the other areas of your life and ensure that they provide stimulation and satisfaction. Perhaps commit to interesting hobbies like amateur dramatics, set physical challenges or join a team sport that requires a regular commitment to training, offer to help a charity. Alternative ways of finding commitment and satisfaction can ease a less than positive work situation.
By taking responsibility and making positive changes you start to feel more in control and less like a hamster running on a wheel. Positive action and mindset provides a better approach to improving yourself and your life. Having fun and fulfillment in some areas of your life helps to reduce the frustration felt in other areas. As a result you become a happier person, everyone benefits and your quality of life is enhanced. Why not commit to making those improvements?
