5 Best Ways To Be Happy In a Job You Hate

If most of us are asked if we are happy with the type of job we are doing right now, I’m sure 70% will say no. We are in the world where most of us do the jobs we do just to survive not because we really love it. That’s why you will see so many people not motivated because they are only motivated by the salary or the money they earn and this reason isn’t enough to keep us motivated. The place of passion and zeal can’t be sidelined when it comes to jobs or occupation. We should try our best to work in line with our passion because that will guarantee happiness at all time.

However, if you find yourself in the position of those who work just to survive, we have to find a way to be happy and that’s why this post is written.

We will be considering things we can do to be happy in a job you hate.

1. Know the reason why you are doing the job

It’s good to remind ourselves the reasons why we are doing that particular job we don’t know when we can actually go out there to do what we want. The reason why some of us are working is because we want to gather some money to start our own business. Some is to travel out of their present country to another dream land. These reasons are so important to us and if we can be reminding ourselves the reasons everyday, we will surely find the job interesting since it’s just for a short period of time.

Again, oftentimes the job you hate is necessary in some ways for your desired path. Maybe you need this entry-level position to open doors for the career you want, or it’s teaching you a certain skill set that will propel you toward your goals. Constantly remembering how this fits into your long-term goals will keep your eyes set on the future and will make going to work each day have a clear purpose.

2. Make friends in your place of work

Most people love going to their place of work not because they love the job but because they don’t want to miss their friends just for a single day.

This is another way to cope with the hatred you have for your job.

3. Fulfil your passion outside work

It’s good to always find a way to fulfil our passion after working. For someone who would love to own a gym or want to be a gym instructor, he or she may be working to get the necessary capital needed to set up his own working place but they can also go to the gym in the evening after their working hours since that’s what they love doing. The anticipation of their passion that they want to fulfil in the evening will fuel their concentration and seriousness at work.

4. Take time off

For someone who hates his or her job, it’s advisable the person take time off often. Taking time off often doesn’t mean giving unnecessary excuses or taking sick leave while you’re not. This actually means not accepting any extra work even if they promise an additional pay. You should stick to just your normal working time.

5. Identify the positives

Odds are, there was at least one good reason you took this job in the first place. Take the time to remember why you’re here. Is this job giving you the extra income you need to pave the way for your dream future? Do you really believe in the mission at the heart of the company? Whatever the plus sides of this job may be, pointing them out, even writing them down so you can physically look at them is a good way to help you cope with the aspects of the job you dislike.

Conclusion

Careers rarely start out where we want them to end up. No matter your five or ten year plan, the path toward the future you want will probably involve doing something in a job you hate. Whether it’s your side gig, a day job that funds your true passion or an entry-level job in your industry that isn’t what you want to do but will help you get there, you will have a job you dislike at some point in your career.     

     However, don’t get carried away by the comfort you later got from the job maybe when you’re paid or you develop a friendship with someone to the extent that you will forget the main reason why you’re at that place.
