If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know that our thoughts create our feelings, our feelings determine our actions, and our actions create our results. It all starts with our thoughts.
So there is our job. Just sitting out there doing/being nothing. Until we have a thought about it. That thought creates the feeling of dread.
Notice that I didn’t say that the dread comes from the job. You don’t dread your job because of your job. The dread comes from the THOUGHT about the job. What is that thought for you?
Yours might be something like “This job sucks.” Whatever it is, notice it. And then notice the feeling that comes up when you think that thought. Mine was something like “I’m not good at this job” which created the feeling of dread.
Our feelings always determine what we do (or don’t do). Here were my actions when I felt dread: worry that I will mess up, obsess over what has to get done at work tomorrow, don’t pay attention to my kid/spouse, constantly think about finding a new job, be annoyed with coworkers, be annoyed with myself for still being there, don’t enjoy my weekends or time off, and constantly think about not going to work.
With these actions, I basically created a life where I’m not good. I’m not good at the job, I’m not good to my kid/spouse, I’m not good to my coworkers, and I’m not good to myself. No wonder I felt so bad all the time! This is what I created with my thinking.
That’s why it is said that you are what you think about.
Practice thinking thoughts about your job that make you feel positive emotions. If you think good thoughts, you’ll feel good and when you feel good, you’ll create good in your life.
In order to find your purpose, you have to be open to receive it by removing the negative energy such as the daily dread and Monday Blues. Click the button below and let’s talk about how I can help you do this.
