Is it your job or is it you?
If it’s you, and you’re not ready to quit and move forward yet, I have 3 suggestions to help you change your attitude around.
I work in an office and it drives me crazy. I dread Monday’s. Not just in a ‘oh boy, it’s Monday morning and the start of another week‘ way, but in a ‘can barely get out of bed, spend all of Sunday dreading Monday‘ way. I want to quit and either go back to school or start my own business, but the economy has me freaked out! What if I can’t find another job? Then throw in the fact that my husband could lose his job at any minute, and I just can’t do it…yet. So, my question is, how can I improve my attitude towards my job, if only to make it more bearable for me, and if only for the short-term?
The last few years have been hard on people. It’s tempting to feel that you’re lucky to even have a job, even if you don’t like it. And when you do express discontent, most people go on and on about how grateful you should be and how you should appreciate the job. This only makes you feel worse, am I right?
Get your husband to fully support your leap to entrepreneurship from a constant job…there’s a way to do it successfully, without disregarding his fears!
I want to really get moving with my business. I’m an entrepreneur at heart and the thought of staying another day in my cubicle job makes me want to scream! I have complete faith in my business model and my ability to make my business work–if given the time to make it happen. My husband, though, is very nervous about my full transition from constant paycheck to the ‘unknown’.
I want to honor myself AND him because I really do respect his opinion and I don’t want him to stress out. But I also KNOW that I can do this, if given the chance. I feel like it’s ‘now or never.’
So how do I approach this? Is there a way to get him to relax and believe in my vision?
