Is your job killing you?
Most people think of toxic careers as in working with poisonous or toxic materials, but killer careers are actually high profile jobs that people stay in too long that rob them of their life’s energy.
I have worked with numerous people over the years who have stayed in careers that they grew to hate. Getting out of bed in the morning became a struggle. Evenings and weekends became a time of regenerating from the hard work week.
All of these people had similarities including, depression, lack of energy and little to no motivation. Most of the people stayed in their careers for health or financial benefits, but what they didn’t realize was that their careers were actually making them sick, and because of this, they would need benefits to treat their depression and health problems to keep them in positions that were not aligned with their souls purpose.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Do you feel energized at the end of your work day?
- Do you feel inspired by the work that you do?
- Do you intuitively know what you are doing does not feed your soul?
We always know what’s right or wrong for us. Staying in the wrong position can have toxic results on your body, mind or spirit. Staying in a career that does not fit or no longer resonates will lead to stagnation and can have negative results on many levels. Our bodies, our minds, our spirits are all connected. You cannot affect one without affecting the others.
If you find yourself in this situation, make a list of what you would really love to do, or the fields that you want to work in and list the steps that you need to take in order to get there.
Whatever you do in life, do it with passion!
