Please Don’t Let Student Loan Debt Crush Your Dreams

Student Loan Debt

I want to relocate and be with my fiancé.  I want to change careers to be somewhere where I am full-time and have benefits since I am currently part-time with no benefits.  I have student loans coming due for payment. Bigger City = Bigger Opportunities and I want to get out of my parent’s home. ~Worker Living in ILLINOIS Oh, to be young and starting out. Hopes, dreams, opportunities, and student loans. WAIT, student loans, that doesn’t fit with hopes, dreams and opportunities. No, it doesn’t; but it’s a fact of life for many of us. Student loans, credit card…


If You Fell Into Your Profession…You Don’t HAVE To Stay…

Decide What To Be

In addition to providing no challenge, or fulfillment — my current job is completely unrelated to my personal interests and values. I fell into the position because it paid very well and came with a certain degree of prestige, but I’ve never truly been interested in the work, or the industry and I’ve been looking for a way out since I hit the three-month mark (I’m currently a week shy of two years). I’m not able to use my natural strengths, and I am 100% confident that this job is in no way related to my true purpose. I can…


Are You Trying to Shoehorn Your Life Into Your Job?


I have been working hard with very few breaks since I was 15. In the last several years, I have been trying to shoe-horn my life into my job rather than the other way around. All the travel and long hours are making it impossible to focus on things that are more important to me. My health is suffering. Physically, I am unable to consistently make time to work out; I eat out for almost every meal; do not get enough sleep; have an inconsistent schedule; and I haven’t been to the doctor in years. Mentally, I am affected by…


Learn to Trust Yourself and Stop Agreeing To Things That Insult Your Soul

Trust Yourself

I don’t feel valued. I don’t trust my own team. I don’t feel like I can maximize my value to the firm. The stress is making me physically and mentally ill. I’m not doing the work I love. The company’s values are inconsistent with my own. ~Worker Living in COLORADO   Today, I will trust myself. I will trust what I value. I will trust that I will be able to do the work that I love. I will pay close attention to my internal voice and cancel out any negative messages. I have to work on getting out of…


If Where You Work Is A Broken Mess…Just Move On…

Just Move On

I can’t work another day with the person they hired as my direct supervisor (hired because she is married to the supervisor of my area, but with limited skill and no proof of her abilities). ~Worker Living in INDIANA We all know that life is not fair. We already know this. We know that people are not always hired because of their skills and abilities but because of who they are, who they know, or how they look. Okay, it happens. Now, we have to get over it. WE have to move on. We have to leave these supervisors, departments,…


Have the Courage to Find Your Purpose and Do What You Love


I am sick of missing out on doing the thing I love doing most. Surfing. I work away from the surf for two weeks then come home for one week to look after my kids. I can go surfing while they are at school only. This is frustrating me and I’ve never had the courage to do anything about it. ~Worker Living in AUSTRALIA “Just Quit” is about courage.  Have courage to do what you know is right for you. You will know when it’s time to surf (do what you love) fulltime.  You will know and no one will…


Never Never Never Give Up – Create Something Out of Your Life


I don’t believe in my job anymore. My boss micromanages everything. I would like to do something in the arts. ~ Worker Living in TEXAS Today, do your art or whatever you are passionate about.
