Seeking a better job or career …

“You must love your work, and not be always looking over the edge of it, wanting your play to begin. And the other is, you must not be ashamed of your work, and think it would be more honorable to you to be doing something else. You must have a pride in your own work and in learning to do it well, and not be always saying, There’s this and there’s that—if I had this or that to do, I might make something of it.”  George Eliot

 

Job Search Are you looking for a new job or career?   Are you looking for ways that will allow you to do what you want rather than doing for the sake of a paycheck?   How important is it for you to love what you do and do what you love to do?

Are you doing work that makes you feel miserable?   If you are, why are you doing it?    The answer to that question is “I have to …”.

How would it feel if you could do something you wanted to do every day?   There isn’t a 100% perfect job or career but you could have a career that is 80% of what you want.    There is likely  something you just don’t want to do that is part of the job requirement and having 80% great work is far better than the 17% great work many people experience.

If it’s time for a change or you want to create a new path of success, check this FREE ebook  Job Search Success today.   Change happens when you make it happen.

 

do optimists lead a better life?

“The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Do you look at each day as  day filled with hope a possibility?

Research has shown that optimists tend to be more successful than pessimists.  What do you to think you are, and optimist or a pessimist?   Find out … here!

The pessimist may find themselves suffering more than an optimist as well. 

The optimist tends to enjoy a better life in many aspects.  Optimism has shown to improve the bodies ability to fight off disease.  Studies also reveal that life longevity is also better for optimists.

Students that stress over school would achieve greater success if they shifted their thoughts towards optimism.   That being said, many college graduates are optimistic about their future and are deciding that happiness may be more important than success.

Pessimism may come about from feelings of helplessness, the feeling that nothing can be done.  The optimist would come from a point of view of hopefulness.  

What do you think, is the glass half full or not?

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”   – Helen Keller
