Do you have the Monday Blues?
Did you know that there are more heart attacks on Monday that any other day of the week. You were not born to almost get by until the day you die. You were born to live a life of purpose where you are doing work that matters to you. Don’t let stress kill your heart and make you unhappy. I have never had a heart attack but I can relate to having a job that makes you hate Monday’s. A few years ago I had a job that was not a fit for me, this job made me feel unproductive. Every Sunday night I had a stomach ache I hated Monday. I had friends that loved their jobs and they were productive. I was angry about my life and I wanted to have a job that made me happy. Until I changed my attitude I made no progress. When I was ready to go to the next level I did two things to help me to get to the place that I desired to be : I made an investment in my dreams and started speaking to my future.
