I love Mondays! I’ve been raving about my favorite day of the work week for years now and one of the main reasons I love this day so much is because it’s a clean slate!
I get to wipe my white board off, and start to plan a week of networking, creating and delivering value to my customers and networks. It’s 5 days work on creating not only my future but helping others around me.
Mondays truly are a blessing!
However, one trip to Facebook on a Monday morning and you’ll see and hear things like this:
And that’s just the start….
Any given Monday morning, go to any social media site and look at everyone that HATES this day.
It’s not the day they hate, it’s what they do for a living.
Plain and simple, Mondays are a blessing if you love what you do and you look forward to them more than any other day of the work week.
Here’s a huge tip that helped me LOVE Mondays and get fired up for the day;
Create A Gratitude List For Your Job
This may seem trivial, but if you start each day writing down 3 things that you are truly grateful for when it comes to your job, you’ll grow that into a list of 10 or 20 reasons in no time. Simple things like;
– My co-workers are fantastic people
– My salary (which can always be improved upon of course lol)
– The opportunity to impact people
– My company and it’s social impact towards others
– A daily opportunity to grow professionally
Come up with your own list and watch how many things you truly have to be grateful for!
And if you absolutely HATE what you do for a living, I’m not going to give you crazy advice like ‘quit your job’ but ask yourself this…
What do I love to do? And how can I implement that into my daily tasks at work or my career?
Create the perfect job by not only being grateful for what you do HAVE, but also what you can create from the opportunities around you.
