Sunday run rumination’s…
As a Recruiter, I might be shooting myself in the foot here, ha.
Part of our business model is based around people being unhappy in their role and wanting a change.
People who are unhappy, quickly make a change of roles.
They get super excited for a few months and then , bam, they loathe going to work and are back on the hunt again.
Sometimes the problem isn’t the business, it isn’t your manager, it isn’t the culture, it isn’t your role, it’s your perception and the way you are thinking.
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes it is all of the above but often people change roles too quickly without any introspection and take the same old issues across to a new role and company.
In life, people think that the the next thing is going to make them happy, content, joyful etc.
It’s simply not the case.
The new car soon becomes old, the new house soon seems too small, the new relationship soon becomes stale and the list goes on.
They are all distractions and will not make you happy.
Unless of course your mindset is aligned to these through gratitude and not for lack or for want or need.
What you’re really wanting is to be content within yourself, to feel excitement, to feel love, to feel joy.
These are all an inside job and nothing outside of you will provide a solution.
Before you look to up and leave your current role, ask yourself: how am I contributing to this situation? How can I change my thought patterns around this? How can I make the most of what’s in front of me and be grateful? What did I love when I first started?
I guarantee you it was your mindset when you first started. You were excited, full of potential and passion feeling pumped and then over time you let that feeling go.
The feeling is still there, all you need to do is uncover it again.
Change your mindset and your state and watch things fall into place again.
Journal, meditate, run, swim, wake up earlier, jump in a sauna or ice bath, whatever floats your boat.
If you try and try again and it’s still not for you, then give me a call and let’s see what we can do for you.
