how to be happily engaged at work

“My life is awful.” It’s a phrase many of us use when talking about our everyday routines, our work and our prospects in life. There are many reasons for this logic. As a species, it’s part of our progressive force. If we were always happy, we’d have no ambition.The problem is, a lot of people do nothing about it. It’s easier to blame our mean bosses, the government and everyone else for our dissatisfaction.

Yet – if you will entertain the possibility – all of us can improve our thinking and change our habits to become more engaged, more productive and more satisfied.

It’s very easy to say your work sucks because your boss is mean and doesn’t care. But let’s be honest – if you think that, you don’t care either. If you did, you’d do something to feel better.

Inspirational Story for your Motivation – Must Read

 

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using a wrench.
At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.

sonstory

When the child saw his father with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.
Devastated by his own actions, sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.
The next day that man committed suicide. . .
Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life….. Things are to be used and people are to be loved,
But the problem in today’s world is that, People are used and things are loved… During this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind: Things are to be used, but People are to be loved …Be yourself… This is the only day we HAVE. Have a nice day Best regards
Watch your thoughts; they become words.  Watch your words; they become actions.  Watch your actions; they become habits.  Watch your habits they become character;  Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
I’m glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder. God bless you; I hope you are having a wonderful day! If you don’t  SHARE this on to anybody, nothing bad will happen; if you do, you will have ministered to someone. The Will of God will never take you to where the Grace of God will not PROTECT you…
