Are you one of the 85% of people working in a job that you don’t like (maybe even hate) and would rather not be doing?
If your answer is yes, then I have another question for you.
WHY? …why are you unhappy with your job …and why do you think you keep doing what you’ve always done?
Hi, I’m Dominic, and I’d like to explain what I discovered when I asked myself the same questions.
It’s a fact that about 85% of people are unhappy with their job, but that’s probably not the worst part of it.
What’s worse is, this is often having an impact on other parts of their lives as well, and most people are completely unaware of the impact it’s having on them and their relationships.
That equates to a whole lot of misery and unhappiness!
Everyone will be affected differently by this and to varying degrees but some of these negative effects include…
- ✦A lack of self-worth
- ✦A lack of accomplishment
- ✦A lack of life fulfillment
- ✦A lack of joy
- ✦Substance (and other) abuse and addiction
- ✦A sense of helplessness
- ✦And one of the biggest …REGRET
…and most people, including myself for a long time, just accept these things as “the way it is” or “that’s the way it’s always been” or “that’s life” …well I think “that’s crap!”
For me, life should be something much more than that. It should also be about more than just working to survive, or working just for the money …whatever happened to working with passion and life fulfillment?
…and yes, I was stuck there too for a long time and I felt many of the above effects as well.
I don’t know about you but when I get to the end, I don’t want to have any lingering regrets, especially if I had a chance to change something but didn’t do it. Even if it doesn’t work, at least I can say I gave it my best shot.
I think it’s sad too when people don’t at least give it a try because of fear ..which usually stems from self-doubt, a lack of self-worth or a lack of self-esteem, etc.
I know a lot of people are trying to change their lives and better their circumstances but I think all too often we give up on our dreams and goals as soon as the going gets a little tough (myself included in the past!).
But don’t beat yourself up over it just yet, we’re not entirely to blame …and there is a solution!
The reason we continue to repeat the same things over and over in our lives and why we never seem to be able to get past a certain point …weather it’s in our careers, or in our relationships or even in our earning capacities…
…is because of our early (childhood) programming.
Every single one of us has been programmed in one way or another. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just the way we learn and grow in early childhood and is inherent to our survival.
Our parents were the first ones to influence us, particularly in the first three years of our lives. Then there’s our siblings, teachers, friends and our society in general, including the media.
So, …now you know why. Which is great news! …because that means you can now consciously begin to change that programming to work for you.
I’d like to ask you another question, if I may.
Do you remember how or why you got into the industry or job you’re in now? Chances are you’ve changed jobs a few times over the years but are still working in the same industry (perhaps you’re even self-employed)
Was it for any of these reasons?
- ✴It was expected of you. You were expected to follow in your parents’ footsteps or take over a family business. Or perhaps just expected (pressured) to follow a certain career path.
- ✴It was what you studied for, so rather than waste the education (and money) you continued to work in that particular field (because of pressure or expectation).
- ✴You took whatever you could after leaving school. Particularly if you didn’t finish high school or have good grades.
- ✴You took on something you liked at the time thinking you would enjoy forever.
- ✴Or perhaps you took what you thought was the easiest way of making money at the time.
For me, it was a couple of those. I didn’t like school very much, and consequently, didn’t do very well either. I wanted to leave school mid-year 10, but thankfully my mum (a school teacher) made me finish year 10 first.
She also told me I had to have a full-time job before I could leave school, so being the stubborn mule that I was back then, I made sure I did.
It was actually through school-based work experience that I discovered that there was something about the kitchen I really enjoyed. So at the age of 16, I took on an apprenticeship as a chef. And I loved it!
I completed my apprenticeship and worked in some of Melbourne’s (Australia) better restaurants before working overseas for several years as well, mostly in Hong Kong at the highly-awarded M at The Fringe restaurant (which has since closed).
I loved what I was doing for about 15 years until I started to question my career choice and the effects it was having on my life.
I loved working with food but I wasn’t enjoying the industry any more …long hours every day on my feet, under pressure, with a fair whack of stress thrown in, wasn’t what I could see myself doing for the rest of my life, and I was only in my early thirties at that stage.

But …I continued to work in the hospitality industry for several more years.
Why? Because that was part of my programming. Also, I didn’t think I had the skills (or knowledge) to move into a different career or industry, which was partly because of my own self-worth and self-esteem issues at the time.
Can you see how most of us are taught (programmed) from very early on what’s expected of us? That’s just the way the system seems to work right?
Why is it that we’re all expected to go to school, get good grades, and go to uni (if you’re lucky) to get a “good” – “well paid” – JOB?!
Don’t get me wrong, that suits some people down to the ground and there’s nothing wrong with that.
But …why is it the only path that’s offered to us in terms of earning money and living a successful and satisfying life? We’re just not taught any other way at school, or by society in general. I really hope that changes one day soon.
Ask yourself this too:
- ๏Is your job secure?
- ๏Are you happy to go to work every day?
- ๏Does your job fulfill your life?
- ๏Is your job or career what you expected it to be?
- ๏Do you like working for other people?
- ๏Are you happy with what you earn for the hours you work?
- ๏Do you have to work long hours to get your job done?
- ๏Is your job physically and/or mentally tiring?
- ๏Are you left with enough time and energy to enjoy your family and your life?
- ๏Do you have enough money to live your best life?
- ๏Are you tired of being tired?
…then it’s time for a change!
We now live in an ever-evolving digital world …and we need to change and evolve with it. Jobs and businesses aren’t what they used to be either and will only continue to change over time.
Now I know how daunting that sounds to some people …because I was terrified when I first made the decision to start a digital business.
But I knew I had to stop selling my time for money if I ever wanted to live a more fulfilling and prosperous life with a passive income for financial security.
I was a complete technophobe too, to begin with. In fact, I didn’t even understand how my Facebook account worked (my wife set it up for me).
I spent most of my life in the kitchen working with food, so I wouldn’t consider myself a techie kind of person at all …and yes, I was a little terrified at first.
But, in a relatively short amount of time I managed to change all that …and so can you!
With the right guidance, education, tools, training and support and the right business systems to follow and work with, getting an online business started is relatively easy these days…
…and I can show you how and where to start …it’s actually where I started, using the same business system and processes.
It won’t happen overnight and I’m not suggesting you should quit your day job just yet either, but with the right attitude, perseverance and commitment …you will get there.
You really only have to take one step at a time …there is nothing to lose and so much to gain!
Consider the difference more time would make to your life …not to mention an extra income with the possibility of leaving your job one day soon and running your own digital business.
Sounds great right?
…make your dreams a reality today! …take a look at how it’s done …the possibilities are endless!
