The Lies We Tell Ourselves To Stay In Jobs We Hate

Not everyone can love, adore, brag endlessly to others about the amazingness of their job. It would be nice if we could, but to quote the great Mick Jagger: “You can’t always get what you want.” However, finding a job you love isn’t a complete impossibility. Sometimes it’s denial and the lies we tell ourselves that can stand the way of reaching that job. So snap out of it! Get with the program of moving on to a job that will satisfy you intellectually, mentally and financially. Remember: ‘Impossible’ is what other people tell themselves.

Here are a few things you don’t want to tell yourself if you want to evolve past that job you hate so much.

      I liked the article except for one underlying truth, in this economy where the unemployment rate in ~9% and the underemployment rate is dramatically higher, those with jobs that pay a living wage should be thanking their lucky stars. Don’t leave a job till you have another one to replace it with!
