3 ways to love your job more

Studies show that 20% of people love their jobs, 20% hate their jobs, and the rest are stuck somewhere in the middle. If you’re not in the positive 20% then you’re probably not working in your dream career field. But even so, you can find ways to enjoy what you’re doing even if you’d rather be doing something else. If that sounds like you, here are three ways to improve your outlook…

Stay away from the negative: If you want to be a better mood at work, you have to step letting others bring you down. While co-workers aren’t always to blame, when a cloud of negativity is overhead, it’s hard to see the sunshine. Keep this in mind the next time you’re listening to someone complain about work. Someone wise once said, “You can’t change the people around you, but you can change the people around you.”

Embrace the positive: Regardless of those negatives around you, there must be some positives to your job or else you wouldn’t be there. Think about the ways in which you help your members. Every day, you get to help people find solutions to problems. They really appreciate what you do for them. Being able to help someone out is a great feeling. Try to focus on that every morning when your alarm goes off.

Do your research: If the job has you down, figure out what the problem is. Is it something you can fix? Great. Work on it. If it’s not, you have to make the hard decision to find something else to do every day.
