In times of crisis there’s this feeling that, if you’ve got a job that pays well and is not horrible, we should just “suck it up” and be grateful.
I deeply believe in gratitude as a tool of self-power, but definitely don’t agree you should settle for a job that doesn’t fully satisfy and fulfill your great desires.
For 5 years I worked in an awesome gastro pub in Brisbane, where I used to live.
I grew a lot there and the last 3 years of the 5 I was the restaurant manager reporting straight to the owner.
I loved so much of it.
Money was great, my boss was awesome, I had freedom to make decisions, I made my own rosters and worked with great people.
I was very lucky, but…
Something was missing.
There were times, right in the middle of a shift, I’d have the thought:
“So…. Is this it what I’ll do for the rest of my life?”
“There must be more to live than this…”
“I feel like I’m wasting my potential here”
And it did get to a point in which I had enough and turned things around.
But it took me ages and I had to really be in a point of extreme pain and unhappiness to be able to see that I had to leave.
It’s been almost 3 years now and I finally found what I’m passionate about and I simply adore what I do.
This is why I believe so much in this revolution.
I believed I could do more and so can you.
Make this year, your year!
