There’s a country song titled very similarly, Take This Job and Shove It. It’s about a disgruntled man who is tired of working in a job that he hates. This song was most famously performed by a man named Johnny Paycheck. What an appropriately named artist for a song about a man who hates his job.
Think about it. His name implies he will do anything for a paycheck. This is a bad outlook on life. If you are working in a job just for a paycheck, I would bet that you are unhappy, not unlike the main character in the song.
Just working to make a paycheck will leave you unfulfilled. Trust me I have been there. If you have too, you know what I mean.
If you are currently in this situation think about what you are passionate about. Think about what makes you happy. How can you turn this into a career? Is there a way to take your passion and talents and use them in your current job?
If you find a career in something you are passionate about, congratulations! You’ll be able to wake up every morning excited about going to work so you can take your job and love it.
