Take A Stand For Yourself For A Change

take a stand

I wake up every day and wonder if this is all there is. I don’t believe I am doing the public any good. My company is purely driven by profit and I am not that type of person. I truly want to do something to better the world. My boss, though not a terrible person, buys into the corporate jargon. I care about people and all I do is determine who to cut. It is truly depressing. ~Worker Living in PENNSYLVANIA Today, take a stand.  Take a stand for SOMETHING you believe in. It doesn’t matter what that SOMETHING is,…


Action…Do Something Today…

Just Did It

I feel miserable every morning and every minute I spend in this office. I don’t believe in their corporate values. I am constantly loaded with a huge amount of stress. I am not listened to. I am being lectured and patronized every day about how I shouldn’t get so stressed. My boss is making me feel as if it is only my fault and that I take things so personally (maybe it is, but this is the way I am).

I have a job and it pays and I still have something to do each day when I show up here, but I am not inspired. I’m not learning and I’m under-performing. It’s just a sad place to be each day. ~Worker Living in the UNITED KINGDOM You are reading from the book “Just Quit” & Live There are only a few universal emotions that everyone experiences: happiness, joy, surprise, anger, fear and sadness.  From time to time we…


4-7-8 Breathing Technique For Stress


I have major depression. I can’t imagine going another day doing what I’m doing and where I’m doing it. I’m burnt out and on the verge of a breakdown. My career provides zero satisfaction and I’m not utilizing my talents and interests. I’m dead here. ~Worker Living in California We are not dead.  We are alive. We only feel dead. We only feel depleted and depressed, but we are alive.  Because we are alive that means we have more to do. We have a chance. Today, get up.  Just get up and breathe in to the count of four, hold for…
