I think we can all agree that working a 9-5 job sucks.
It's the same thing, day in and day out. You have deal with a boss that you may or may not like, doing tasks that you don't want to do, at hours that you don't want to work. It can be pretty demoralizing and draining.
How are you supposed to stay motivated working for someone else's dream? Well it's not as hard as you might think.
The biggest thing you need to figure out is finding out what your why is. What do I mean by that? It means figuring out why you're working in the first place. Most people would probably say that their why is them wanting to have food on their plates with a roof over their heads. Or even that they just love buying crap.
I guess those are valid points.
Whatever your why is, that's the first thing you need to figure out. Once you figure out what your why is, you need to think about what your end goal is. You need to set a plan for yourself to make sure you're not wasting your life working a dead end job. Whether you want to move up in your company, start your own business, or find a sugar daddy / momma to pay for your vacations, make a plan.
It doesn't have to be detailed. You don't need to plan every single step because that's impossible to do. But you do need to have a rough guideline or what you want your life to look like.
Nothing hurts more than realizing you've been in the same spot for years and haven't done anything with your life. Like Squidward.
Once you understand what your why and your end goal is, then try tying in how your current job can get you there.
Are you gonna have to put in more hours? Are you going to have to improve efficiency to make life easier? Is this job even going to get you there or are you going to have to leave? The answer is probably yes all three of them. But the most important thing is that you are going to have to hustle. You're going to have to grind. And you're going to have to love every damn minute of it.
It's going to suck. Times are going to get tough. It's going to be damaging to your sleep schedule. But now you know that you're not stuck at just a dead end job with no end in sight. You now found your purpose, a reason to actually want to come to work. You're no longer working to accomplish someone else's dream, you're working to accomplish your own.
You're excited. You're ready to tackle each day, every day, until you get to your destination. A feeling that you never thought you'd feel ever again.
And once you get there, you're not going to regret a thing.
