Happiness and “Work”

Work Is A Series of Steps To Success, Achievement And Satisfaction

The word “work” conveys exertion or effort directed to produce or accomplish something…

“life’s work,” the pride and satisfaction we gain from personal and professional achievements.

Work in most senses is viewed as a bad thing. no one likes working, but in reality, work is wonderful.

For some people, “work” means misery, difficulty and pain.
Anything associated with “work” must be avoided at all cost.
“Work” is by nature unattractive, burdensome and distasteful.
“Work” deprives us of fun and enjoyment.

Habitually Happy people enjoy very different perspectives.
They view “Work” as steps to success and achievement.
They love to achieve and succeed so they always try to enjoy their work.

Habitually happy people decide what they are going to do and then they decide to find ways to enjoy it.
The best way to excel and do well at anything is to cultivate a love for what you do.

They know viewing something they have to do as dreary, difficult or distasteful allows bad attitudes to work against them.
They align their attitudes to support their goals, ambitions and decisions.

Even dull, repetitive work feeds families and allows people to pursue hobbies and higher goals. Take pride in doing simple things extraordinarily well.

so work work work is the motto for life!
no matter how simple or complex the work is, just go and get it done!!

    I agree with you. God made us to work. In the Garden of Eden, he told Adam to take care of the animals and birds and fish and in another place he told Cain that he'd have to work the land with his hands & that it'd be difficult, as well as other people.

    We derive great pleasure from work also. It gives us a sense of satisfaction and pride. If we didn't have work, what would we do with ourselves?! We'd be bored out of our gourds and get into all sorts of trouble!

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Excellent blog! There are these days when working just seems blah, but I do love the outcome of things. I'm lucky because sometimes it doesn't seem like work for me, but much more rewarding.

    I also love what I do....not that it isn't stressful at times but 90% of the time I have a great time at work and would do it for free if I were independently wealthy emoticon Just don't tell my employer.

    The other 10% is when I let things or other people get to me. That's when I need to take a step back, breath deep and pray for patience.

    Thanks for posting!

    Thank you for sharing this! I am one of those people who does enjoy work! I think once we don't have something, we have a new appreciation for what was lost! Here is to loving achievements, success, and strides forward!
