I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
In March 2006, the Harvard Business Review published an article regarding the findings of a survey of 7,700 American workers at mid-career. What did they find? Among other things, they found a fair bit of fatigue and frustration. Only 43% of people surveyed said they were passionate about their jobs. Only 33% feel energized by their work. By way of contrast, 36% say they’re in dead-end jobs, and over 40% are suffering from career burnout.
In what category of people would you find yourself? I hope you’re among those passionate and energized by your career. But if you’re not, you’re clearly not alone. Nevertheless, it’s a problem that I think deserves your careful consideration. God’s image isn’t best reflected in a person tarnished by frustration and discontent.
If you’re unhappy in your career, take a good look to determine the root of your dissatisfaction. Sometimes it’s something we can’t do anything about; but sometimes we make it worse than it is with our sorry attitude.
So, look at what you can change . . . especially your attitude, and take steps to make it better!
“Those who have easy, cheerful attitudes tend to be happier than those with less pleasant temperaments, regardless of money, making it, or success.” - Dr. Joyce Brothers (1928- )
