Are You Working With Your Type of People? If Not, It’s Time To Find Your Tribe.

This is a plaque I made after reading this poll entry...

A year after a former employer was acquired and a merger is complete, I have realized that these are just not “my people”. They do not do anything that I am proud of. They do not “make” anything, only manipulate information. The subject matter bores me. My mind goes to a beach on an island or a hiking trail in the mountain within the first 30 seconds of every meeting. I disagree with leaders in their approach in some aspects of business. I am now behind the scenes, and client contact is what I always enjoyed, but the types of positions…

Self Respect Means Knowing and Doing What Is Best For You

Self Respect

I’m tired of being taken advantage of and disrespected. I’m tired of working my a** off for minimum wage and pouring my heart into a franchise I can’t change. Along with a penny pinching boss that defines cheap. (Broken furnace gets space heaters). ~Worker Living in CANADA   Today I will show respect.  I will start with showing myself respect. One of the universal truths; no matter who you are, where you were born, your race, your color or any other social factors is that ALL people want respect. They want to be treated with dignity and feel like they count. …

This Is Your Life, You Can Decide How To Live It.

Hope not fears

I’m working for a narcissist. His sarcastic, rude comments are more than I can bear anymore. He repulses me. I am depressed from having to deal with this individual. I too have looked for another job without success. I feel stuck and I want to “Just Quit”. ~Worker Living in Arkansas When we work for people who we know are mentally ill it can be a challenge. It IS a challenge. We have to second guess our every move and endure needless verbal abuse…for what…a paycheck, health benefits, a job?  We all know that everything changes, because it does. Eventually…

Grow From Your Situtation

grow through dirt

I need to have TIME back – I hate feeling that the job is impossible and I am inadequate! I’m in education – but the English system is too ridiculous I want to return to Ireland where I’m originally from and I want ME back. ~Worker Living in the UNITED KINGDOM Who is “me”? Depending on how you look at it you might never get that “me” back again. Even when you come out of your depression; or get out of this job; the “me” that you were before this is not the “me” that you should be after this. Know…

Stop Just Going Through The Motions…Why Were You Born?

Twain

I don’t like paperwork and my job is very boring.  I can’t find myself and I don’t like spending most of my life doing this or being in this place. ~Worker Living in Switzerland Finding yourself is the greatest gift that you can give the world.  Discovering the reason that you were born and are in the world is what life is all about.  If you are just going from day to day, going through the motions – STOP. You are here in the universe for a reason…only you can find out why…that’s why you’re here to play your part…find…
