How to be happy doing a job you hate.

Here is how to handle it when life throws you jobs you must do even though you hate them.

First get the biggest job you hate out of the way first, this is when you have the most inner fortitude and the rest of the tasks look easy after that. Next recognize it is a means to an end, know how the job fits in with your plans, even if it is not apparent at first. Lastly practice gratitude. Focus on the good things in your life and don’t dwell on the crap work.

Try this advice out on a job you have been putting off and see how it goes.

Ask yourself “Is this The Best I Can Do?”

Settle for nothing less than your best when it comes to your key goals.

You know I am not a big fan of absolutely killing yourself to get the very best effort on things. Most of the time that last little bit of results takes a disproportionate amount of effort to achieve. However when it comes to the goals that are going to make or break you, only your best will do. So ask yourself if a project merits you best and if so, if you are in fact giving it your best.

Is it time to give something your best effort?

Why you are miserable even if you achieved 98% of your goal.

The answer is that you are a perfectionist and you set yourself up for failure.

I am all for total success, but most of the time it is just not worth it, that extra few points exacts a terrible cost. And by focusing on only total success you miss the benefits of a bit of failure. You don’t take the opportunity to learn and grow from failure and mistakes; you just dwell on your perceived failure.

Lower your sights just a bit and see what you learn.

To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift.

Your success in any endeavor is forever linked directly to your heart, your will, and your steadfast commitment to goals.

You cannot ever let fatigue make you a coward, nor can you ever expect to win without struggling, without suffering, without sacrificing…as these are all essential elements of the DNA of winning. The relentless attitude is the winning attitude and the remarkable thing about life is that we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. You cannot change your past. You cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. You cannot change the inevitable. The only thing you can do is to play on the one string you have, and that is your attitude

So what is it: you can choose to be relentless, or you can choose to roll over and surrender to weakness.

Think about what you are thinking about.

Wherever your focus goes, your energy flows!

Whatever you devote your undivided attention to will manifest in your life. You must develop the discipline and willpower to control the thoughts you allow to roam freely in your mind. Know your goals and focus on how what is going on around you can be used to move your toward them.

Your life will change the moment you take responsibility for your own mindset.

Cheat on your goals.

When setting a goal, pick one that you have already made some progress on.

In order to help make a goal seem more achievable, start with a goal you have a head start on. Having some part of the goal already in the bank makes the whole process go faster. You do not throw up unknowns as obstacles and anticipate it being harder than it is due to your prior experience.

What goal can you “cheat’” on today?

Become an extremist.

Make yourself into a person that obtains success beyond any norm.

You can’t be normal and achieve extraordinary results. You cannot have extreme productivity without taking extreme measures. Extreme productivity can only begin with a zero tolerance for unproductive activity. Being normal just isn’t going to cut it.

It is your choice today, be normal and get what you always have gotten or become an extremist and attain success.

Four things to give up today.

Stop doing these things today and you will have a perfect life.

1. Doubting yourself. There are plenty of people to do that for you.

2. Procrastination. Once you start you will wonder why you ever hesitated.

3. Fear of success. This is hard to spot, but man is it powerful.

4. Perfectionism. Getting to perfect is just never worth it.

OK, which one are you giving up first?

When you are stuck solving a problem, change your vantage point.

Taking a different viewpoint could be the key to a new outcome.

Sometimes when you drop something on the floor you have to change your vantage point to gain new information on their position. So it is with issues you are trying to solve. Looking at the issue from a different viewpoint may give you new information that can help you. Search for additional ways you can view the problem so you give yourself new options.

What alternate vantage point can you use today?

Never, never stop thinking about what you want.

The minute you stop thinking about what you want, someone else makes the decision for you.

The most valuable skill or talent that you could ever develop is that of directing your thoughts toward what you want—to be adept at quickly evaluating all situations and then quickly coming to the conclusion of what you most want—and then giving your undivided attention to that.

Are you focusing on what you want right now?
