Fall in Love with Your Job Because Paychecks are Nice
By Janeane Davis on February 08, 2013
Each workday, people all over America wake up, shower, dress and go off to work. Many of those people are not happy about having to go to work each day. Some of them even curse the fact that they must go to work. I am proposing that instead of hate, those people start looking at their jobs with a loving attitude. Think about it. When a person is in love, the person is kind, considerate and speaks with a kind voice. When a person is in love, she does not insult the object of her love. A woman in love protects the reputation of the object of her affection. In return, she expects to be rewarded with love, loyalty and affection.
So tomorrow, try looking at your with an attitude of love. When you get up in the morning, think about your job with a smile. If your job is truly horrid and there is no way you can fake a smile, get dressed before you get out of bed. That means, put on your big girl panties and your fake it until you make it dress and smile anyway. If the job itself doesn't make you smile, the fact that you will be getting a paycheck at the end of the pay period should turn your frown upside down.
Here are a few relationship ideas you can use to show that loving feeling at work:
- speak kindly when talking about your job
- dress up and look your best for work
- do not engage in idle gossip about your job
- act as if you are happy to get your paycheck
- thank your co-workers for nice things they do for you
Just as no one likes a woman who has a good husband that bad mouths and cheats on her husband, no one likes a person with a good job who acts like a fool at work. Do not cheat on your job - give your job all the hours, attention and devotion you promised when you got hired. Do not disrespect your job - be courteous to those you work with and your customers. If you are not happy with your job, move on to another. In the meantime, learn to love your job because getting a paycheck is indeed a nice thing. So, the question for you this wonderful day is what do you do to show you are happy your job gives you a paycheck?
