Stop Settling For A Job You Hate. (You Deserve Much More.)

February 12, 2015 | Written with Love By: Shaina Leis

When you’re doing the work you were called to do in the world, it comes with a special power- the power to see something that a lot of other people cannot see.

An artist can see colors that others cannot. A philanthropist sees a huge problem in the world that others are oblivious to. And a life coach can see the potential in people when they themselves are unaware of it.

It’s then our job to share our gift with the world. The artist paints so that others can experience the same beauty; the philanthropist raises awareness to open up people’s eyes, while my job is to help you realize your full potential.

When I see people who are unhappy and unfulfilled at their job, I don’t understand why there’s not more of a drive or motivation to make changes. I want to shake them and say, “Don’t you know that you could have a much better life than the one you’re living!”

I wake up everyday, inspired by my work, because I want you to see what I can see…

I want you to see that it is 100%, absolutely possible for you to have the most spectacular job in the world.

I want you to see that you are more than capable of creating the greatest lifestyle for yourself- one that feels as easy as breathing.

I want you to see that you already have everything that you need to make this happen.

Once you open yourself up to this new world I speak of, you start to deliberately create a better life for yourself- one that does not include you wishing away your week to get to Friday.

But first, you must stop making excuses.

I’m always intrigued by why a person stays at a job they hate. I’ll hear, “It offers medical. I don’t know what else I would do. If I just stick it out, then I’ll be happy. I have to pay the bills. This is what I went to school for.”

It’s a whole bunch of reasoning that just keeps you stuck.

I would never tell you to quit your job right now. In fact, it’s usually when you tell yourself, “I’m going to do this as long as I can,” that you gain some internal clarity about what you need to do and where you want to go.

I’m asking you to be awake to the fact that there’s much more to life than what you’re experiencing and know that you’re meant to do something much greater. Let this be the driving force that gets the wheels turning. Refuse to settle for less than you deserve.

So you can either continue to come up with a million reasons that justify staying at a job you hate or you can begin to open up and see what I can see…
