A few days ago a life coach by the name of Lynch Hunt was answering viewers' questions about being fulfilled at work on a morning show.
Someone called in and asked a question that I know many of us feel constantly, and thought I would share it with you all.
He went on to say, " I am late to work almost every day. I don't like my job, but I need my job, and if it continues I am going to lose my job. I'm not lazy, I'm bored. I want to feel fulfilled with what I am doing. I know I'm not going to love it, but how can I change my attitude or at least my bad habit of being late all the time?"
Hunt's response was simple, and something that we have talked about many times in this newsletter before. It all starts with your mindset.
He said, "the way you think drives the way you feel, and the way you feel drives the way you behave. Once a negative attitude finds what it's looking for, it locks in. On the other hand, a positive attitude will give you a greater perspective and insight. How you feel about yourself and the joy you get from life ultimately depends on how your mind filters and interprets your everyday experiences. Whenever I become impulsive or negative, I try to refocus my thoughts by simply saying thank you. Saying thank you allows me to have an attitude of gratitude and an attitude of gratitude means making it a conscious habit to express thankfulness and appreciation for every part of our lives. When you develop an attitude of gratitude you feel happier and more positive and it allows you to see the situation more accurately and thoroughly."
As you start this work week, try and have an attitude of gratitude in everything you do, and watch your happiness increase in your daily life and at work.
