How to Develop Satisfaction in Your Work

Even if you've landed your dream job, it's possible to fall into a pattern where you find your work far from enjoyable.

When you're dissatisfied with your work, it can be a huge chore to get up in the morning and you may even feel hopeless.
 
However, the good news is that you can change certain aspects of how you approach your work in order to find satisfaction in the job you've already got.
 
Follow these tips to increase your satisfaction at work:
 
1.    Keep open dialogues. It's truly important to keep open dialogues with your colleagues and superiors. Voice your concerns calmly, without sounding blunt and unappreciative. If no one knows that you're dissatisfied, nothing will ever be done to fix the problem!
 
2.    Reward yourself. You can increase your own personal satisfaction by deciding on certain rewards that you can give yourself once you've completed a task successfully. For example, if you've worked hard all week, allow yourself a fun Friday night. Don't wait for anyone else to reward you!
 
3.    Handling stress. Start looking at how you handle stress. Unfortunately, there's a certain amount of stress associated with every career. Are you actively searching for ways to vent your stress or are you keeping it bottled up inside? Make sure you have proper releases for work stress as well as home stress.
 
4.    Avoid getting stuck in a rut. It's difficult when you feel like you aren't making steps in the right direction. You might feel like everyday is the same and that you aren't getting to explore your full potential. Think about what your goals are at your current job and ask yourself what actions you're taking in order to get there. Reformulate your action plan if necessary, and then take steps to move you forward again toward your goals.
 
5.    Think positive thoughts. Your life is what you make of it. When you adopt a positive mindset, things will more often go your way. When you think negatively, of course your job will continue to be unsatisfying! Remain optimistic and you'll find the drive needed to keep working toward positive goals.
 
6.    Make a change. If you find that you're truly in the wrong line of work, it's time to plan out a change for the better. As a last resort, if you truly feel that there's nothing you can do to improve your current situation, then make an attainable plan for change. You may want the same position at another company, or an entire career change all together, whatever it is, find out what you need to do, and then do it!
 
Right Mindset And Action
 
In the end, as long as you strive for a positive mindset and take action toward your goals, good things will happen for you. When people are stuck, they tend to freeze and feel helpless. If this happens, it can turn into a vicious cycle that you might believe is unbreakable. But it isn't!
 
Take charge of your thoughts to break the negativity and take small steps each day toward a better life. Making a change overnight is overwhelming, but when you take small steps, change happens easily. Before you know it, you'll be at least a little more satisfied and fulfilled at work.

I have always been miserable in everything I do, because I always wanted something bigger and better.  I used to wake up in the morning and try to convince myself that I need to get up and go to work to get a pay slip the end of the month.  “That’s where money comes from”, I tried to convince myself.  You have to work hard to get somewhere in life.  I always knew that this wasn’t true, but I had to convince myself to be able to go forward in... Read more...

To think back 49 days is to realize “that you do not know what you don’t know”!  To now, for the first time in my life, discover the truth and nothing but the truth, is fantastic!  We know that the oldest trick the devil uses, is to take the truth and twist it a little bit – I call it the hamburger effect:  Nice, attractive lies, the twisted truth, covered by some more nice, attractive lies….and we fall for it every time? Read more...
