Get Aboard the Happy Bus!

One of the best changes you can make in your own job security is to choose to be happy with what you have. You HAVE a job. Sure, you may work with a few dweebs. Your boss can be a jerk. The mailroom wasn’t the destiny you had in mind when you graduated magna cum laude… but you HAVE a job. Not everyone does, so start there.

If you have a job, and you can blow people away with how far above and beyond you go, and how quickly you do it, you’ll have a better job. It’s the oldest trick in the book and a common part of most rags-to-riches stories.

Look around you. More than half of Americans are currently unemployed or underemployed. If you’re underemployed, bringing that chip on your shoulder about the 30 grand more you made last year is NOT the way to get that 30 grand back.

Acceptance is the answer to your happiness and to workplace motivation. Gratitude attracts positive responses, which in turn attract positive things. Express your gratitude for your projects, for your coworkers and boss… heck, appreciate it all. Nothing is perfect, so it’s time to suck it up and accept what is. Lack of gratitude is the fastest way to dry up abundance.

So start today to find the MANY reasons to be happy at work!
