Not everyone is lucky enough to inherit a legacy. Most probably you are also not the one born with the silver spoon. In many cases, some people, in today’s world are in dire need of financial help. Despite having a degree and following the right career path, you are still not guaranteed a job that suits your wish. There is not something like a dream job. It is just a high school motivational feeling. It is a self-assurance that you as a teenager gave yourself throughout your life.
We all have seen a little girl who wants to be a doctor. She thinks that this job is going to make her serve people and make her stress free and all. Well is this the case with a doctor? Certainly not. A doctor in the US might have no financial stress but the tress she has to take face at work is literally self-draining. It is still one of the desired jobs and one may still feel thankful for it. But what about the jobs no one wants to do? A janitor, a babysitter, a typist, a receptionist and sometimes maybe a waiter may not have the financial security after taking 10 hours shift. Here we are going to discuss a few tips for you being positive about your job and workplace and see how it affects your finances.
Do not aimlessly run after your passion
We all have heard dialogues like that “follow your passion and money will follow you” or “do what your heart desires” and the list goes on. All these work-related advises are amazing if you have a financially secure living. On the other hand, how are you going to follow your passion for singing if your landlord just throws you out of the house? There is a difference between the advices a teenager gets and the practical advices. There is a term called “earn your passion” that is you have to earn a living and be financially free and responsible so that you can follow your passion.
Some people who do love their passion so much that money matters are secondary for them. Many sportsmen and sportswomen who were even able to make it to the Olympics were financially broke. This is their choice and they can own it but most of the people cannot own choices like these. Can you afford a choice like this? If yes that’s phenomenal but if that is alright, welcome to the real world. Let’s take a job which you might not like but that helps you pay your bills and be positive about that job.
Some jobs are just not desirable
Some jobs that are not desirable for many people. Being a dishwasher at a restaurant, a counter assistant, a janitor and many more. But first of all, realize that these jobs do not make you or anyone else any less of a human. You may be working with your college to avoid student loans that you would have stuck with otherwise. Be grateful, you are saving yourself from years of debt. In case you are a college graduate who at the very instance is not able to secure a fancy job that’s normal. It seems hard because students or teenagers generally are not taught about real-life financial situations. So get your spirits high at your workplace you would be surprised by the fact that a major part of the job-related stress was just in your head following your lack of desire to do that job.
On the other hand, many may be unsatisfied because the jobs do not provide them with financial ease. The money might not be flowing according to your qualification and skill at your current job. Even if this is the case you can still be at ease by accepting it as a matter of time. As it is said the road to awesome is paved with awful. Again it is a matter of time. Stay positive and see the difference you make in your life.
Your road to success
Each day of your life is a learning experience. You cannot become great or earn a fortune without putting time and effort. You know well that all the amazing masters of different fields of life have failed numerous times before you get to know them at all. Develop habits of exceptional people by just stepping ahead and getting every opportunity of learning and growth. Each day is going to add in you and if you stay positive with that undesired work of yours you would be surprised by the amount of learning in a very short period.
The “by default” undesirable workplace
Some jobs/ workplaces are undesirable because of the demands of the workplace and the job description. This is even no excuse to just quit and become homeless in a few weeks. This attitude is not going to help your situation anyway. As I have stated that earlier everyone is not born with fortunes and getting a dream job without making your way through it is the case with only very few very lucky ones. The rest of us have to make our way through it.
By work smartly, you can still impress your bosses at your current undesirable workplace and get promoted. In short, do not keep regretting the silver spoon you were not born with. Stay positive and keep building yourself each day.
