It can be soul destroying to be in a job that isn’t your passion. I know this first hand and have struggled with this personally. It’s tiring to hold on to that frustration. It’s aggravating to get up every morning knowing you’re headed to a role that isn’t your ideal role. It can be the most frustrating when that feeling begins to creep through every part of your life, it’s like it breeds more frustration. But there is a way of changing this energy around so that you can continue with the job you need to do now in order to get to where you want to be later. And this is how:
Choose to see every job as your dream job.
How does this work? It’s a subtle energetic shift in perception. If you view every job you currently do as your dream job, you treat it as a dream job, your results increase and your sense of satisfaction increases which means that you naturally attract people and opportunities to you that will give you a foot in the door to your dream job.
Think about it. How do people who don’t like their job come across to you? Do they make you want to buy from them? Do they make you want to return to their business? Do you feel excited to call them when you need to? Not really. So if this is the case then, naturally the opposite is true too.
The next step is to start looking at how your current role might actually be preparing you for your dream job. What if you need to know how to print and bind documents for that dream job? What if you need to know how to create an online booking system for your own business when you have the capital to begin?
Finally (and we’ll talk about this later this week in a separate post), we need to release our loyalty to others and embrace our loyalty to ourselves. That is, not feeling compelled to stay in a role when we feel we owe it to someone else.
Lets begin today by choosing to see every job as our dream job. Photocopying – it’s your dream job. Running errands – it’s your dream job. Stacking the dishwasher at work – it’s your dream job. Answering the phone – it’s your dream job.
Then, after some time, watch how your day gets better and eventually how your opportunities get even better.
