3. Staying at a Job You Hate
There are plenty of people out there who hate their job. They love to complain but never do anything to change it. And even when we come out of this on the other end, applying for work is going to be a huge struggle. Many people can’t be picky when it comes to finding work. We can’t deny that money that puts food on the table is important, even if you just like what you’re doing. But if your goal is to become rich, you can’t stay at a job that you hate for the rest of your life.
Try to imagine your dream life. What kind of work are you doing? Depending on how far away you are from that goal, you’ll have to make the right choices accordingly to set your new life in motion. For example, if you wish you could become a doctor, you’ll have to go to medical school first. That job you hate might be necessary in order for you to pay for tuition. As long as you have a game plan on how you’re going to get out of this, you’ll feel a weight lifted off your shoulders. A job that makes you miserable suddenly becomes bearable when you have a goal of exactly when you’re going to leave. You’ll realize that it’s a permanent but necessary step in your journey, rather than a prison sentence.
