Not long ago, when I worked in investment banking, at exactly 7:30pm on Sundays, I would get serious anxiety just thinking about the workweek ahead. I didn’t like my job. Actually, I hated it. My anxiety was so bad that my body would cramp and my attitude always turned crappy. It got to the point where I couldn’t enjoy Sunday dinner with my family. It was terrible.
Now, at the same time on Sundays, I no longer dread Monday. A matter of fact, I get EXCITED and CAN’T WAIT for the week ahead. The journey between investment banking and my current career wasn’t easy but worth the walk and it all started with one step, literally.
Do you have anxiety thinking about your workweek ahead? Do you literally feel sick just thinking about going into the office tomorrow? Then, what are YOU going to do about it? Remember, every journey began the same way – with a first step.
You are responsible for your happiness and the only way to change your life is to own your power. Directly face the fear keeping you in your current position by taking swift and bold action. Take your step, don’t wait, get started now!
“You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.” ~Les Brown
