Curve Balls - Looking for advice
Life throws us curves all the time. It could be an illness, a family tragedy, a work delima or it could be great holiday, a wedding, a promotion at work, a new baby. What I am saying is life is unpredictable.
We can take tragedy and make the most of it, or try to learn some valuable lessons from it. We have choices in life and how we react is a determination of how we will proceed with life. Life is full of surprises, good and bad. How we choose to live our life is in our control? Nobody else can tell us how to live, we might want to believe that others do make choices for us, but that is not true. It is up to you and I to determine our path in life.
I am tired of working for someone else, not getting compensated for my own hard work, my initiatives to improve processes and efficiencies at work. There are no rewards, no incentive to do a job well, only personal satisfaction, which doesn't pay the bills. You see others be bullied at work, take advantage of no supervision, just plain NOT work only put in the hours. How is this even possible, or fair?
OK, life isn't fair. I am rambling. I am stressed, fed up, frustrated and angry I guess. I am a hard worker, determined, organized, reliable, punctual, a team player, an independent worker, I take initiative and I play well with others. (Yeep always have a smile and a kind work) I work in a health care environment.
We are all here at Wealthy Affiliate for our own reasons. We are all obviously missing something in our lives, we want a better life for ourselves, our family. Usually it revolves around independence, money or time. I have tried many endeavors, only to fail, but as the saying goes "Better to have tried and failed, then not tried at all".
So here we all are. Trying to make the best life we can and fulfill our dreams. Wealthy Affiliate offers so much to each of us. And each of us want different things our of this GREAT opportunity. I want the lifestyle to enjoy the rest of life, enjoy my horses, my family (maybe that should be in a different order) have time to pursue hobbies I want to try. I am sure many of us have these same goals and dreams. Traveling is another goal on my list, not a lot but to tour my beautiful country, Canada would be amazing.
So, I have been out of the loop for a few weeks, I have been dealing with personal conflicts and a work crisis (and I am only a minion) to say the least. My ranking has dropped more than I would want and I feel lost. I need to refocus and start anew.
I am looking for advice. I would be grateful to any of you for any suggestions on how to get refocused. I must sound like a "negative ninny", that really isn't my intention. I wanted to share with you my personal challenges. There are only so many hours in a day and I get emotionally drained and stressed, as I am sure a lot of us do.
So how do you overcome it? How do you stay focused? Do you have someone to make you accountable?
Please any help,
I am all ears!
