Do you wake up in the morning like a sailor set adrift in open seas after a terrible wreck?
Do you feel stranded by your job or career left only to count the days until the weekend?
Are your weekends like tiny islands of comfort helping you forget your unhappiness?
And when your tiny “vacation” (the weekend) is over and it is late Sunday afternoon, are you already dreading the idea of going back to your job?
If you can answer yes to one or all of these questions you are ready to change your life.
Building Block #1: Awareness
Recognizing that your unsatisfying, dismal, and uncomfortable job is the core problem in your life is the first building block to change. Your awareness that your job is the source of stress, anger, anguish, anxiety, angst, pressure, unhappiness, discomfort, frustration, and malaise is the most important fact to begin your change.
The byproduct of these horrible feelings often leads to giving up, going through the motions, feelings of inadequacy, lack of trust, cynicism, doubt, and self hatred in some cases.
If you can be honest with yourself and utilize your awareness that you need change, you are on the path to discovering the steps that will give you back your hope, your life, and your happiness.
If this sounds too good to be true–it is not. If you want a new life, Susan Hanshaw’s upcoming book “Inner Architect: How To Build The Life You Were Designed To Live” is your first step.
