  1. In part, it’s still a blessing because they’re able to pay for housing, bills, & food. Others don’t really have that luxury. By that, it doesn’t mean we can’t choose an alternative or a way out of course. I hope that mqkes sense. ✌️

      • It can’t be such a blanket statement. Working with someone to discover their life’s purpose is the primary objective. After that, things manifest with the momentum that has begun.
        The challenge for any coach is to remain objective and mindful of their own fears when making suggestions. Focusing on observations and telling the client that it a subjective observation is the least they could do. Not offering opinions is best. The coach serves as a guide to self-discovery, not reflected discovery. Does that make sense?

  2. If you don’t like it, search for a new one simultaneously. If you wish to do something which may be your passion and may not immediately give you money then work till you have a minimum amount as back up.

  3. I would recommend that they understand the underlying reasons of why they are not happy? If it was the benefits or the environment, the solution could be to find a position at another company that is a better fit or better benefits. If the dissatisfaction is with what they are doing, moving into a related field or even training for a new career might be more appropriate. The key would be getting the person to learn what gives them satisfaction and a sense of purpose. The only thing I could do is to help facilitate that process.

  4. My advice would be..

    If you don’t like your job..
    you have the choice to leave and find something that you do..

    And if you choose to stay.. for whatever reason..,

    Try to find some joy in what you are doing..
    But don’t stay with it and complain.. afterall it’s your choice to be there…,

  5. Danny. I have a question for you???

    Do you ever reciprocate and read your audiences posts…
    and encourage them with whatever they blog about..???

    I am just wondering .. I’m one of your loyal follower..
    and I do love what you talk about…,
    It’s my choice..
    My last few posts I noticed you weren’t amongst my viewers…

    Is it because you don’t find the subject of my blog interesting.??? Or you just have time to focus on your blogs without much interest for anyone’s else..

    Just curious…
    and a question just for you…

    • I try to visit and read other pages, but with over 6600 WP followers plus 35,000+ social media followers it is incredibly difficult to keep up. Not to mention Youtube. I get hundreds of comments each day and then around 30 emails. Keeping up with it sometimes is impossible. Not to mention the fact that I work a full-time job on top of all of this. Plus I also have my volunteer work with the National MS Society with speaking engagements. So as you can see my schedule is packed. That doesn’t mean I am not interested in other’s pages, it just means that I don’t get to read like I did when I had a lot fewer followers. I hope you understand.


  6. I would ask them what their expectations are for a job. In their answer, I am sure both parties may get a better understanding of whether the expectations are reasonable or not. Then I’d go from there.

  7. I would tell them to do something about it. Find another job simultaneously (preferably one they like, I can’t hear the same complain twice lol)
    If they don’t take up my advice and still whine about it, I’d probably say something like “Okay then stop being a bitch and accept your fate. Stop complaining if you won’t change a thing.”

  8. I never make solid decisions for people, but what I do is leave them with something thoughtful. That way if they leave, and it’s wrong or If they stay and be miserable. There’s always a payoff from our choices.

  9. ” If you stay you are miserable, weigh the pros and cons. If you leave, you have opportunities to try new things…etc ”
    Something in this nature allows them to think for themselves, but plants the seed to think of happiness.

  10. Well when my kids or the husband is complaning about work usually the first thing I say is, “I think that’s why they call it work…” Then usually you have options. If it’s that terrible, look for a new job but realize life is not perfect and work is work. If if’s and but’s were candy and nuts, we’d all have a merry Christmas. Blessings, Dray0308

  11. I actually just had a chat about this with a friend of mine. My advice: Find something you love. And then, when they tell me that they try but can’t let go of the job because of the financial side, I tell them to try to find something that makes them like it but not stop looking for a better option and for sure not be afraid of changes.

  12. No matter how much you hate your job, there is always something to learn from it. It could be as simple as learning to stay away from this type of job. You might, however, find some area of the job you enjoy and capitalize on it. I started my career maintaining large, boring computer programs on mainframe computers. I was in the typical nerd environment with little contact with the people who used what I worked on. One day, I discovered that our company had a small area that was working with the emerging personal computer market. I checked it out and quickly learned that working with personal computer software opened several doors for me. It put me in touch with users. I could make immediate changes to improve the quality of their work. It also introduced me to technical support and eventually people and project management. My career took a much different turn within the same company and I ended up working there for 17 years finding things that interested me and changing jobs every 2-3 years.
