I've been asked recently, “What do I do if I'm stuck in a boring job?”
Firstly, every single detail in your life is an outcome of the choices you've made in the past or, more to the point, are the outcomes of how you've been ‘being’ in the past. This includes all the actions you’ve taken, how you’ve taken them, what you’ve said, how you’ve said it and to whom. This is actually very good news because it means that it is how you are ‘being’ now that is going to create the future to come.
So how are you being now? Are you being ‘I’ll be stuck in this forever’ or ‘I can't get out’? Or are you being ‘there's no way I can do it’ or ‘I'm not good enough to do anything else’?
If these are the states of being that you are choosing then where is that going to leave you? Exactly. That's going to leave you in a place of feeling fed up, exhausted, tired and probably dreading Mondays while yearning for the next Friday to arrive, then possibly getting heavily drunk every week end or eating lots of cake at every opportunity you get!
If you really want to break out of the current situation or job you're in, the number one thing to take on is being 100% responsible for yourself and your life right now. You must understand that every circumstance that you're experiencing right now is your responsibility.
Secondly, own your power. Know that you can choose to be however you want to be in any given moment. Know that you can choose an empowered state right now, such as being alive, free or unstoppable, and then begin to practice this especially when you feel down. Also remember, it's how you're behaving now that is going to have you take those actions to create a new future.
Finally, take tiny, tiny actions. Research the career or an industry that you would absolutely love to work in. Whether that's to travel the world as a photographer, set up an online shop to sell exclusive toys, or be a fashion designer and sell your designs around the world. Whatever it is that you want to do, start by taking tiny, tiny actions towards it.
All the most successful people in the world created their lives by taking tiny steps, so start by researching an industry that inspires you. See what the opportunities are or which jobs are available in that sector. Then it's about you getting your CV together and so on.
All this begins with:
1) Taking full responsibility for the way your life is now.
2) Owning your power. This is you knowing that regardless of your situation, that can choose to be in an empowered way, and that it's you being in such a right now that is going to create a new future for yourself.
3) Then start taking tiny, tiny actions today.
I guarantee you, if you take on this minor inner shift, one year from today you're going to be in a completely new position in your life. So take this on today, go and create a whole new future for yourself.
