Is your ladder up against the wrong wall?

Is your ladder up against the wrong wall ?

66% of employees worldwide are either not engaged or are actively disengaged in their job. According to a Gallup survey, those are the numbers we are talking about.

That means there are far more people that hate their job rather than those that love their job.

That also means you are far more likely to encounter someone that spends time doing what they don’t like for a living over someone that is doing something they like for a living.

So many people have their ladder up against the wrong wall.

Somewhere in the world, there is a corporate CEO, working 14 hours a day, who would have been the best teacher in the world.

Somewhere else in the world there is a budding writer stuck in an office cubicle all day.

Elsewhere, there is a miserable receptionist who would make an incredible professional singer.

Here’s the thing…

There’s nothing wrong with admitting to yourself that you are in the wrong line of work.
What if you just need more courage to quit what’s not working?

The ambition of quitting work isn’t so that you should retire and do nothing all day.
It’s so that you can do something that fulfills and inspires you.

Something that has the possibility to bring you some joy in your life.

You have to understand that it’s ok to say, “I really just don’t want to do this anymore”.
And then start to work towards doing something else instead.

Start by discovering what that might be.

That’s a first step and it will lift your spirits just to realise that the journey to your escape has begun.

Explore something else.

Explore other things to earn a crust that would be more fulfilling.

At some stage, if you don’t want to end your days wishing that you’d tried something that would make you happier in your life, you have to take the leap and make a start, leave your doubts at the doorway.

Before you go…

If you feel like you have reached your own ‘pivot point’ in life, where you know deep down that it’s now or never and time to change your life for the better, you may want to see how it’s possible to Discover YOUR Alternative Lifestyle.
