3 Questions You Probably Ask…

Hiya,

If you are dissatisfied with your job at the moment you are probably asking one of 3 questions:

  • 1. How can I enjoy my job more?
  • 2. How can I find a new job?
  • 3. How can I set up my own business?

Let’s look at them one at a time…

1. You might ask how you can enjoy your job more because you either like your work but just dislike who you’re working for – which could mean your immediate boss, your colleagues or maybe you dislike the department you’re working in. So how do you change that?

2. You might be wondering how you can find a new job because you have the same issues as number one, or you’ve come to the conclusion that you don’t actually like what you do. This could lead to a complete career change, so where do you start?

3. If you don’t want to continue working where you are now but can’t envisage being satisfied working for anyone else, then setting up on your own, either doing what you do now, or doing something completely different seems like the most desirable option. Again, where do you start?

Thankfully, my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?” deals with each of these issues one by one. So whether you find yourself asking question 1, 2 or 3 – the book will help you get clearer about what to do next.

And it just so happens you can get a f.ree copy right now right here. 🙂

What are you waiting for, 2014 is ticking away fast!

Enjoy

Getting To Grips With Fear And Confusion

Hiya,

This is another extract from my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?” which is available for f.ree right now here.

______________________

Getting To Grips With Fear And Confusion

If you do decide to find a new job, new career or start up your own business know that there may well be fear and confusion along the way.

Learn to accept that, learn to understand that growing as a person is happening alongside this journey of following your passion, dream or goal. Sometimes you have to take the hit. If you want to go into events planning but don’t have the experience, why not get a job just helping other planners set their events up and learn how they do it from the ground up.

If you feel totally stuck or paralysed by fear or doubt – get calm. Sit still, breathe deeply and slowly and reconnect with your intuition, excitement, creativity and imagination. Trust yourself.

Accept that you won’t know all the answers, accept that you will have to take risks and above all accept that you may fail along the way. This is part of the journey. If it was easy everyone would do it – but they don’t. This is the road less travelled, this is the path to success, the difficult path but the one that leads to more fulfillment, contentedness, happiness, joy and ultimately life.

I did it, in fact I’m still doing it. Yes, I still have doubts and fears and I still find myself procrastinating from time to time. But at least now I’m aware of what’s going on and how to change it.

And remember to give yourself a break. It’s normal to be afraid, it’s normal to be unsure. Rather than chastise yourself for these negative feelings, acknowledge them. Sit with them for a while. Listen to what they’re trying to tell you. Then question if you agree with them or not.

Feelings are natural – accept them, allow them. If you want to know the strategies and tactics to change them… read on.

______________________

Here’s a great tactic for alleviating fear which I learned recently from Cameron Von St James and his incredible wife Heather.

Eight years ago, Heather was diagnosed with mesothelioma; a rare cancer that kills most people within 2 years of diagnosis.

Each year, they gather around a fire in their backyard with their friends and family, write their biggest fears on a plate and smash them into the fire. This symbolic gesture actually has a powerful psychological effect on our psyche. It says: ‘I don’t want these fear feelings and I’m ready to destroy them.

They call this ‘LungLeavin Day‘ due to the operation that Heather had to endure. To find out more about this inspiring family and the help they offer others go here.

What’s The Cost Of Doing Nothing?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

This is another extract from my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?” which is available for f.ree right now here.

______________________

What’s The Cost Of Doing Nothing?

If you’ve been following this book up to this point, considering whether you can stay in your present job or career or whether you may be better suited to getting out – then take a moment to consider the cost of doing nothing.

If you just stay where you are and you just keep doing what you’ve been doing, not trying to fall back in love with it, not trying to recraft it into something more enjoyable – but just staying exactly where you are – it will definitely cost you in the long run.

These are the three main areas where doing nothing will cost you:

Emotionally, Financially, and Opportunity cost

Emotionally – at the beginning of this book I revealed How I Identified I Was In The Wrong Job which probably gave you some clues to how you might be feeling right now and how you’re going to continue to feel if you do nothing about it. Anger, frustration, feeling stuck, chest pains etc. It doesn’t get any better unless YOU change something. What’s the cost to your health and well being?

Financially – for me I was almost instantly better off when I made the change I needed. That may not be the case for everyone, but the question I asked myself at the time was: ‘Can I survive with less?’ When I decided I could, it made it easier to make the change – and that’s when opportunity raised its head. What’s the potential cost to your pocket?

Opportunity cost – I would never have known what opportunities were available to me if I had just put my head back in the sand, and I certainly wouldn’t be enjoying the lifestyle I have today. If you don’t put your head over the parapet you’ll never see what lies beyond the fortress walls. You have to consider the opportunities, look for them, recognise them when they show themselves and calculate the cost to you if you don’t seize them. What opportunity will you miss by staying as you are?

Hopefully you’ve spent the time necessary to create, separate and prioritise your opportunities list as mentioned in the previous chapter How To Change Jobs (Step 3). Those 5 top opportunities open to you, together with understanding the cost of doing nothing, should give you plenty to consider right now.

Mistakes

In my opinion, if you are in a job that you hate, or a company that you hate, then there are two mistakes you can make right now:

  • #1 Doing nothing
  • #2 Quitting your job before you understand what your options are

The next step is Deciding. This is the step that really set me on the path to my present lifestyle and circumstances. It seems daunting but in my next chapter I’m going to reveal how to make the decision process a whole lot easier.

Do You Hate Your Job?

Get your copy TODAY!

Get your copy TODAY!

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

Today is the day!

You can grab your F.REE copy of my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?right here.

It’s subtitled: “How To Decide If You Can Fall Back In Love With Your Job Or Whether It’s Time To Quit.

It’s complimentary to my Ponders group and my blog subscribers for a full 2 weeks before going on sale on Kindle.

What this book will help you discover:

According to Deloitte’s recent Shift Index survey, 80% of people are actually dissatisfied with their job. They hate going to work most days.

If you’re still reading I guess that includes You. What a way to live – I should know, because I was in that situation for the best part of a decade. I felt like I had no options, like I was trapped. And even if I did find another job I’d be worse off.

This sucked all the enjoyment out of my work and I spent my days watching the clock whilst juggling 101 urgent things that needed to be done.

I also fell into the trap of hardly ever getting away from it – and even when I did take a holiday, I felt obligated to stay in contact whilst I was away. Crazy I know – but I bet this happens to a lot of people.

If this is ringing alarm bells with you this book will help you discover:

  • 1. If you are in the wrong job
  • 2. An understanding of your options
  • 3. The best way to make a big decision
  • 4. What your fears and doubts are based on, and…
  • 5. How changing your Mindset will help you plan ahead

It’s a pretty succinct little book which aims to take you from where you are right now to a place of greater clarity about what you want and how to explore if you can get it.

Enjoy

Have You Got Less Working Years Ahead Or Behind You?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

This is an extract from my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?” which is available for 2 whole weeks to my subscribers at no cost ahead of it going on sale at Kindle.

(Details of how to get your copy at the bottom)

p.9 of “Do You Hate Your Job?”

I read a blog post by Stephen Edwards recently and this line in it inspired the question above: “The truth is I have probably lived more days than I’m going to live.“ Wow! That focuses the mind, right?

We’ve all heard of Peak Oil – it’s the point when we have burned more oil than is left in the ground, we’ve gone past the halfway mark – there’s less left than what we’ve used. Trouble is, we’re using it faster every day so it won’t last as long as we’ve been using it already.

This is much like life – it goes faster the more we live it. The older we get the quicker it goes! The big question is – what are you going to do with what’s left?

Nobody knows how much time they have, so let’s make each and every day a step towards who we really are and who we really want to be. Let’s show the world our unique selves, let’s offer the gift of ourselves to everyone.

If you’re a man of 38 or more, you’re probably halfway through your life – shocking right? The same if you’re a woman of 40 or more. I don’t say that to depress you but rather to spur you on to consider what you want the rest of your life to be like – work or otherwise.

And that is largely down to what you DO.

Every day is a new opportunity to change your mindset and change your life.

“All you have to do is decide what to do with the time that’s been given you.” ~ Gandalf (Lord of the Rings)

Are you really stuck?

Do you know the difference?

There’s a fine line between perseverance and flogging a dead horse. Understanding the difference is where success lies.

What are you afraid of?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

Take the opportunity today to do something a bit scary!

When we do something scary we step towards our fear, even if it’s only a small step, even if it’s only a little fear. This is good practise for stepping towards something a lot scarier. This makes it easier to face even bigger fears.

Maybe that’s asking for a raise at work – a step towards it might be to imagine (or even write down) your ideal conversation with your boss.

Maybe you’re considering changing your job – in that case start by writing a list of all the skill sets you have and match them up to potential opportunities you have available (my new book can help you with this).

Make a habit of doing something a little bit scary and pretty soon you’ll be addressing those fears that have been holding you back from living the life you always dreamed of.

Baby steps lead to toddler steps, which lead to infant steps which lead to hops, skips and jumps – eventually leading to great big enormous leaps.

Take the first step today.

Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it. ” ~ Jack Canfield
