Ways to Leave Your Lousy Job Continued…

Goodmorning, here are some final ideas for those of you wanting to leave the job that you are in…compliments of Jon Spayde:

11. JOB HUNT WITH EVERYONE: Tell everyone you come in contact with that you are looking for another job. It might help if you are clear on what you want. Focus, focus, focus!

The following quote from Jon could easily have come from the writers of The Secret:

“Make yourself alert for, and receptive to, help from odd corners and unlikely people.”

This speaks to the power of flow. In order for this to work you have to know what you want, you have to be OPEN to receiving, you have to have integrity and you have to be grateful for what you’ve got.

You might want to read a great book on this subject which is called, “The Power of Flow: Practical Ways to Transform Your Life With Meaningful Coincidence by Charlene Belitz and Meg Lundstrom.

12. LOSE THE BLUE-COLLAR COMPLEX: Everyone is equal here. Everyone deserves to be happy and to have work that is fulfilling and pays well. If you grew up in a blue-collar family as I did don’t let this hold you back.

You can do anything you want to!

It’s never too late to go back to school. I was the first person in my entire family to attend university. I started late and obtained not one but two degrees.

Numerous successful and extremely rich people do not have advanced education. Perhaps going to university gets in the way???

13. DEVELOP A SPIRITUAL LIFE: Remember, spirituality and religion and not one and the same. You can have a strong spiritual life without joining a religious group.

You’ll have your own definition of spirituality. Here is one from the website Workplace Spirituality:

“Spirituality comes from an inner core self that exists beyond the mind’s survival instincts and programed beliefs and values. It is the source that influences us to behave with passion, understanding, empathy, humility, compassion and love.”

So, if your workplace can’t be healed and it is time to leave be kind to yourself and take those first three tiny steps towards a new future.
