Do you dislike the feeling of not being appreciated by your employer?
Have you given up on making suggestions to management since it always seems to fall on deaf ears?
Do you feel that management is wasting their time and money by giving you jobs that are way below your level of talent and education?
Are you feeling jealous of friends that seem to be so successful at what they work in or how they are living their lives?
Do you fear making a career change will risk your current financial stability?
According to statistics, only 20 percent of people reported that they were passionate about their jobs.
So does G-d want us to suffer during the workweek?
Do you think sometimes that perhaps G-d gets enjoyment perhaps in a sadistic way of seeing people suffer?
So if some or all of the above resonates with you, I would like to let you know that G-d wants you to stop suffering as soon as possible.
G-d created you and he is in his most elevated state when you are happy not when you are sad or suffering.
In reality, our suffering comes from a few different places but not from him. One of the core things is that the same way in your core you are only pure and good so too G-d is only pure and good.
Now is not the time or the place to get into the entire reasoning behind these facts however I will share with you in this article a few tips on how you can practically improve your situation.
The first step is to get to discover who you truly are.
Chasidus explains that each person is a world of his own. G-d loves each and every creation of his with an intense and warm love!
From the outside, we may look and act similar to someone else however from the inside we are very deep and complex individuals. We will work on a more in-depth discovery at a later date, however for now we will work with the shorter version.
To get to know who you are I need you to create a 30-day Journal.
In this journal, you are only allowed to enter positive aspects about yourself. Start with whatever gifts you were given that are above the average. make sure to include everything even if in your eyes it might be almost insignificant.
Try to be as specific as possible.
If you are having trouble you can reach out to a Parent or a friend to help you create this initial list.
You can not move to the next step until you have found at least 10 positive things about you and have entered them into the journal.
The next step goes as follows. For the next thirty days whenever someone pays you a compliment, you must make sure to add that compliment into the journal.
So to recap, day one should have all of the positive aspects about yourself plus any compliment that you might have received that day.
Make sure to create an easy way to record these compliments so that they are not forgotten by the end of the day. Some people might want to keep an electronic journal on their phone and add it immediately.
Another idea would be to send yourself an email or text. If you really want to be unique and different you can go wild and crazy and take a pen and paper and do it the old-fashioned way.
It is important to note that even if the same compliment repeats itself one hundred times you must add it into the journal.
If you experienced great success in something add the success story and a description of how you felt about the success in the journal.
Enter into this journal anytime you felt an overwhelming amount of love.
This can be either from giving or receiving love to another. When you enter this into the journal make sure to add all the details of the situation in the journal.
Record into the journal anytime you felt a very lofty spiritual connection to the divine!
This can come during a time of prayer or any other time you sacrificed your own desires for someone else’s needs.
At the end of the 30 days, you will review this journal and you will have a much better understanding of who you really are.
In my next article, I will guide you on how to process this information into a detailed description of the real you.
If you have any questions or you are having difficulties with this process feel free to contact me at [email protected] and I will try to help you out!
Have a great day and remember to make today the best day of your life!
