Your job is probably the one thing that you wake up in the morning and don’t want to do. The idea of having to get up in the freezing cold while it’s still dark outside and head to work on the packed commuter train is just one that feels so depressing! Job satisfaction has to start with the moment that you wake up in the morning and it’s something that everyone around the world seeks to have.
If you are going to work and thinking about all the things you wish you had that could make you happier, then you need to start getting happier. There is so much that you can do right now to make yourself appreciate your job. You’re in a lucky position to have a job, and if you can make an unpleasant job feel good, then you’re going to feel more confident and happier in your working life. So, what could you be doing to make your working life more satisfactory?
Know Your Goals.
Before you go to work, while you’re busy brushing your teeth in the morning, think about your aims and goals for that day. Don’t think too far ahead, just make a mental list of the things that you would personally like to achieve by the time you hop on that train home. You can stay positive and appreciate the day if you know you have a goal to hit on the way.
Dress For Success.
A good portion of the success of your day sits in your level of confidence. This is going to come from the way that you dress and the way that you feel about that. If you have to wear a uniform such as the scrubs from WonderWink, then make yourself feel good about the layering that you use to keep warm. You can also find new ways to do your hair like in the video here, so that you can give yourself a confidence boost first thing in the morning. That confidence will show in everything that you do, and people will take notice of you!
Plan The Peak.
What about your day are you looking forward to the most? Work toward that peak of your day and it doesn’t matter whether it’s drinks after work or the meeting you are giving at 11am. Whatever the peak of the day is, put it on a pedestal and get excited. That fake it ‘til you make it mantra can work well in this instance.
When you are openly grateful for your position, you can find opportunities laid out in front of you. Compliment your co-workers and recognise when people around you are doing well. Giving out the good things is a good way to attract them back to you.
Your working day doesn’t have to be a bad one, it’s all about perception and how you want to be perceived by the people you work with. Rock it in the workplace and your confidence can soar.
