I used to suffer from them too. And even if you don’t, even if you really like your job, you probably know someone that doesn’t, right?

Below is a contents list of what my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?” covers and it’s absolutely f.ree. I want to help as many people as I can escape the misery of working in a job they hate or get no satisfaction from – what a waste.

  • The Importance of Taking Time Away
  • The Comfort & Riches Parable

  • The Real Cost Of Doing Nothing
  • How to Make Big Decisions (Parts 1 and 2)
  • Understanding Why Change Can Be Painful
  • Mindset = Success
  • Getting To Grips With Fear And Confusion

Within these chapters I deal with subjects like:

  • How you can change it

The 3 Questions People That Hate Their Job Ask…

3 Questions You Probably Ask...

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

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

Turning hobbies into cash!

Girl Abstract

Girl Abstract

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

One of the first things I did 10 years ago when I decided I hated my job, and that I was going to change that somehow – was look to my hobbies.

It was more about creating another income stream than replacing my job. It was just something I’d dreamt about for years but had never tried to realise.

The hobbie with the most potential for me was painting. I like to create abstract paintings. Friends and family were the recipients (mainly my sister), and they always encouraged me to pursue selling them – except my dad who just said: “What on earth is it? Who’s going to buy that?” Very encouraging. 🙂

So I started looking into ‘how‘ to sell them.

I went to galleries and art shops and eventually got some interest in a couple of pieces – if I could get them framed the art shop would try and sell them. As luck would have it, I knew of a framing wholesaler near to where I lived so I dropped them in.

A couple of days later I went back to collect them and got into conversation with the wholesaler about creating some paintings just for him.

Before long I was painting in every spare moment I had and the wholesaler was selling them as fast as I could paint them. Being a wholesaler he wasn’t paying me much but, I didn’t have to walk round dozens of shops and galleries. I didn’t have to leave paintings here, there and everywhere ‘hoping’ one would sell.

Instead I just painted and got paid.

To date I’ve sold over 600 paintings! A nice trickle of income.

Why am I telling you all this?

Because you may have a hobbie or two that you don’t think you can earn anything from, and you might be right. But it’s well worth getting out there and finding out. And broaden your view – think outside the box. The money might be in teaching that thing you do. Brainstorm ways in which others might want what you can do.

The excitement of pursuing my hobbie gave me motivation to try other things too – within 3 months I no longer worked in the job I hated.

Go make your own luck

Enjoy

Are you on an upward trend?

Are you on an upward trend?

Are you on an upward trend?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

If you take a look at the financial markets you’ll notice there is an upward trend all the time.

Of course, here and there, from time to time, they go down – for a while. But eventually they pick up and continue to bounce back and continue to grow.

Life can often be like this – for everyone.

Everything is going along just fine, life is good, everything seems to be working out just dandy, then bam! A hitch. A stumble. Maybe even a fall.

At that point rather than thinking that everything has gone wrong, that your world is caving in, and nothing will be the same again – realise it’s just a blip on the graph.

Look back at your life, can you see any other blips? Trawl further and further back, surely there were some blips hear and there. You lost a job, a partner left you, or maybe you failed an exam etc.

You got over it right? At least I hope you did.

So here’s the thing, we must look at these blips as simply that: blips in an otherwise upward trend. A crest leads to a trough which leads to a crest and so on.

This perspective (bigger picture) may help you see that your present predicament is temporary and that You can choose to move towards the next crest.

Enjoy

PS: If you are having trouble reaching the crests, if you seem to find deeper and deeper troughs, then start somewhere. Your relationships, your health, your career. If it’s the last one then grab a no cost copy of my new eBook ‘Do You Hate Your Job?right here. And start reaching for those crests today.

The top two reasons an employee feels engaged

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

Here are the top two reasons an employee feels engaged:

  • #1 The extent to which employees believed that their senior management had a sincere interest in their well-being.
  • #2 The extent to which employees believed that they had improved their skills and capabilities over the previous year.

Do you feel engaged at work in either of those two ways?

As opposed to the top 10 reasons an employee hates their job.

Stay tuned over the next couple of days for details of how you can get your f.ree copy of my new eBook “Do You Hate Your Job?” – which shows you how to change the way you think about your present situation if any of the above relates to you.
