The fear of losing your job is common. Rising unemployment makes you cling to your job, even if it does not bring joy. Psychologists say that if a salary is the only thing that keeps a person at work, then this is an alarming symptom.
According to statistics, people who are dissatisfied with their work activity are 2-3 more likely to suffer from cardiovascular diseases than those who are not uncomfortable with their work. Burnout is an actual symptom for every second person, stress is its conductor. Therefore, an honest answer to the question: “Does everything suit you in your work?” important in all aspects of life.
New York University researchers have found a link between job satisfaction and well-being in personal life and family relationships. Therefore, making a choice in favor of money, it is worth considering whether the benefits from your activities will remain in the long term.
Psychologists recommend not chasing a highly paid job if the salary is the only argument. In work, the feeling of belonging to the process, the awareness of its importance, at best, the intersection with a hobby, is much more important.
Experts divide the ideal workplace into three components: passion, meaning, earnings. Each factor follows from the previous one. There is interest – there will be meaning, and consequently, money.
It turns out that the basis is desire – a pronounced interest in a business and motivation to do it. And it is precisely its absence that is the starting point of all problems.
Moreover, the lack of motivation may be associated with a general dissatisfaction with life, a refusal to accept oneself, one’s abilities, or disbelief in self-realization as such. Destroy the barrier of skepticism allows personal experience, trips to a psychologist or an example of someone else’s experience.
