How to change your life – change your career
Do you find you’re always struggling to get out of bed in the morning? Are you excited for the day of work ahead or do you want to hide under the duvet? We all struggle to find motivation sometimes but if you’re struggling to find any joy in your work maybe it’s time to make a change.
- Change for success
Albert Schweitzer said: “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” If you dislike your tasks in work you won’t complete them to best of your ability, you might even avoid completing them entirely. However, if you’re passionate about what you do you’ll have no problem going the extra mile and your passion will shine through in your work making it much more likely that you’ll advance in your career.
- Change for your health
Did you know that happiness actually has inumberale health benefits? It boosts your immune system, wards off disease, protects your heart, makes your more resistant to stress and can lengthen your life. By contrast, unhappiness can have devastating consequences for your health. It can cause stress which brings with it a multitude of side effects, lower your immune system, leaving you more at risk of illness and cause a range of psychological problems including depression and anxiety.
- Change your skill set
It’s easy to feel stuck in your current role and in your current industry. Why not see the new year as an opportunity to make a change and try something different?
