Are you dreading work tomorrow?

It’s just after 10 o’clock on Sunday night and I’m betting there’s quite a few of you out there dreading work tomorrow, fighting the reality that you should be heading to bed soon.

I know I’ve been there. Way too many times to count.

Everything in your soul is screaming that you’re in the wrong job, you’re stuck, you’re miserable, and the last thing you want to do is go lay down and wake up in the morning.

Well, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way.

As Sifu Shi Yan Ming says,

“You create your own life. You make it heaven or hell. Destiny is not something that happens to you. You create your own destiny. … You must grasp your life and sharpen it.”

If any of these words have hit home, and you’re one of those who just knows you’re not doing what you were meant to do, then I challenge you to have some faith and listen to those voices.

And read the following link, as I think it will feed that small fire burning deep in your soul:

My big news, and as much motivation as I can possibly shove your way.

Keep the faith,

  1. Hey Stan – over the past 20-30 years, a lot of young people have worked conversations around to asking me for career advice.
    I keep it simple: if you don’t love getting up in the morning and heading for work, you’ve got the wrong job. Loving your job is the first priority, and there really isn’t any second one.
    My post-Corps career was very successful financially, but I could barely crawl out of bed in the morning and drag myself to work.
    Going back in the military at age 45 was the best thing I ever did for myself (and I’ve been waking up at 0500 – raring to go – for the past 25 years).
    Either love your work or do whatever it takes to find some that you do.

    1. That’s actually amazing advice. I’m increasingly convinced — actually I have been for quite a while — that you need to dust off your blogging skills… Lotta folks out there could use your wise counsel…
