They both had same job, but definitely not same attitude to job.
If you can find absolutely no way to love what you currently do, find what it is that you do love to do and do it!
LEARN TO COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY WITH THOSE AROUND YOU.
Start saying 'Thank you' as opposed to gossiping. Learn to see and appreciate good in those that you spend an average of 8 hours a day with. When you turn your thinking around to having an 'Attitude of Gratitude' instead of one of drudgery and complaint, everything gets better. You will begin to draw people toward you and get help and recognition for all you do from most unexpected sources.
LEARN TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR EXPERIENCE OF LIFE.
Have you ever noticed how one person can say something to you and you immediately fly into a rage? Yet another person can say basically same thing and you laugh? This shows that we are responsible for way in which we react to outside circumstances. We choose to react in certain ways, to certain people, events and situations. Isn't that amazing? It means that if we choose not to get upset by what someone else says, we don't have to? Cool!
It also means that we can realize how to talk to others in order to create a win-win situation. If you know saying something a certain way gets a certain reaction out of someone, then you can choose to inflame or soothe, aggravate or stimulate. Wow, what a difference awareness makes.
If you could do with an injection of Joy of Life, why don't you try these techniques? You'll get confused looks for a while but when people realize that you're actually a lot happier and stress free than you used to be, they'll be clamoring to learn your 'secrets'
Go on, tell them what you've discovered and before you know it, you'll all love working with each other, every day!
