In life there will be things we like and things we don’t like.
The good and the not so good:
In our job there will be things we like about it and things we don’t like about it. When I worked at UPS, I didn’t like the job but I did like the paycheck. No matter what we do, we will find this is true. So what do we do?
We persevere: we make ourselves do what we don’t like to do. Sometimes we endure so that we can succeed in life — be successful at our job. What we learn is that nothing is perfect. We can always find fault if we want to.
So, what is necessary is an attitude adjustment, so that we don’t focus on what we don’t like or what we think is wrong. We focus on the bigger picture. When I worked at UPS, I had to focus on what they payed me and on providing for my family and paying my bills. When we focus on the immediate, we lose our perspective on what is important. We look so much for perfection and we believe we have to, are supposed to, like everything. We are not and we won’t. If we want to find fault, we will.
Just look to the big picture, the benefits, instead of always what’s wrong. It will help us and benefit us.
Just a thought,
