Respect Yourself in the Process
You are never too good for a job! If life brings you to the point of working in McDonalds, bartending or washing dishes, learn to accept the present situation and stop fighting against yourself; everything happens for a reason! This does not mean that you must remain at this job indefinitely, but while you do, do it with passion while being proud of yourself!
Always be thankful for having a job and somewhere to work; being homeless or struggling with an addiction in the backroom of your home are much worse situations! Go to work every day and put your best foot forward; new doors will open up if you maintain a positive and optimistic outlook.
Do not compare yourself with others; everybody has a destined path in life. Your focus should be on bettering yourself, performing well at your current job and moving forward in life. The moment that you become ashamed of your job is the moment that you will start attracting negativity; positivity cannot dwell in someone who is ashamed of themselves.
Keep in mind that most of us have all worked in a job at one point in time that we didn’t enjoy, but we did something extra on the side to pick us up from that situation, and that helped us move forward in new directions. Until then, keep your head up, do the best that you can and stay positive.
Always remember one thing: never be ashamed of what you do!
