Have you ever felt like you’re stuck in a place that you really don’t want to be in? This can school, college, university and even a work place.
I’m writing this as I got friend on Facebook who whinges and whines about having to go to her work place everyday, her status is full of, ”Urgh I hate getting up at 6pm to go to work” and ”gotta go back to that place tomorrow”. I don’t know about you, but I hate seeing those kind of status on Facebook as I see it as a way to attract attentions and to create drama. I have consulted her and told her in person that if she is that unhappy then quit and move on. She would then whinges and whines about her boyfriend and how she is the one who is having to pay the bill and etc. In honestly this kind of behavior never ever ends.
A lot of people have told me that I think differently than others – well maybe differently to this friend. I don’t whinges and whines on Facebook (well not much anyway) and I understand to put me to x, y and z – I need to put myself forward to be at x,y,z as no one else will.
I’ve never had a lack of determination and still cannot understand why some people do. My own personal determination and the will to do things I like to do has put me where I am today – freelancing as social media manger/blogger.
Why spend your days being unhappy about your job, your boyfriend, your life? It bores me to death when I see what I consider attention seeking status on Facebook or hearing people complain about their jobs, etc. as if they have no choice in the matter. Wake up you put yourself there. In the place where you are whinging about getting up at 6pm that is making you so unhappy. No one is nailing your feet to the ground or holding you back but you.
Change something. My mum used to tell me that if I was angry/upset about something, then change it. It is really that easy and simple.
This is where the excuses start to pour in. I can’t do this and that because of this and this, oh please. It’s ok, I’m used to hearing them and everyone has one. When you’re finished listing off all of the reasons why you can’t do something, start thinking about what you can do.
Everyone has something they’re good at or loves to do… that’s what makes us unique people. What Sarah might be good at, you might suck at. No one said you have to do what Sarah does. Find something that makes you happy, and go from there.
My fellow writers and bloggers should understand this one. You write/blog because it makes you happy and you are probably good at it. With the right determination and passion, you could turn your hobby into a success. Now think about those other writers who just wrote plain hideous stuff. (Sorry, *cough* Fifty Shade Of Grey). Do you think these people actually have passion with what they do? I mean really are passionate about it so much that every detail and every bit of energy put into their ‘project’ shows? No is the answer. These are prime examples of someone trying to do something they’re just not good at, because Sarah does it and can make money through it.
This is nothing wrong with – Just trying. That’s all you have to do. If you fail, try something else. Stop thinking negatively about all of your problems and look for a positive. If you can’t find a positive in the situation, then change and do something about it.
