Why You Should Love Your Job

Why You Should Love Your Job

Find a job that you love. It seems simple, right? Unfortunately, too many people have become comfortable in the discomfort of a job that they hate – maybe the job isn’t what they expected, they took to a career path too soon, or they’re simply just too afraid to make a change. Can you relate?

The average worker will spend over 90,000 hours at work during their lifetime – that’s almost 44 years! If that’s not reason enough, here are a few more to get you out of a job that you hate and into one that you love.

  1. Builds your confidence
    You might think otherwise, but money is not the only reason why we work. A job can help you learn more about yourself, including what you’re good or not good at and how far you can push yourself. A good job also allows you to work towards and achieve a goal—this not only gives you a purpose but boosts your confidence – an important stepping stone for success.
  2. Opens the door to new opportunities
    If you don’t love your job, why would you spend extra time investing in it? Many people spend so much time focusing on the bad aspects of their job that great opportunities pass by unnoticed. Develop your career by seeking additional training or education. Your determination and ambition will not go unnoticed and could even lead to a promotion or bring about unexpected opportunities.
  3. Good for your health
    Believe it or not, loving your job is good for your health and can help you live longer! When you’re in a job you love, you’ll minimize work-related stress, which is sometimes linked to an increased risk for weight gain, a poor immune system, depression, heart attacks, and strokes.
  4. Keeps your life in balance
    Much like a ‘Debbie Downer’, those who hate their jobs often carry their bad mood home with them at the end of the day and expect others to wallow with them in misery. Whether you’re aware of it or not, this kind of attitude can add unwarranted stress or tension to your relationship(s). Find a job that you love and you’ll have more energy to keep all areas of your life in balance.
