So many people I encounter hate their jobs. I mean really hate their jobs. Yet, they are stuck in circumstance. What I mean by this is that they let outside factors control their lives instead of making fundamental changes that allow them to overcome these barriers. Let me be clear; there is absolutely nothing wrong with putting in a hard and honest day’s work and dealing with unpleasant tasks along the way.

There are many noble professions that provide vital services to our communities that, while necessary, don’t necessarily have the glamour attached to them or garner the esteem from our peers in the same way of other jobs. This is okay. I am not talking about glamour, and I am not making judgments about what is or what is not a worthy endeavor. This is an extremely personal choice. My point is to let you know that if you are not content with your life, you can make changes in the way you approach your life after tapping into what is most important to you.

Oftentimes, people just change jobs. However, they are not truly addressing the source of their problems; thus, they find themselves in this perpetual state of unrest. They go from one uncomfortable and unfulfilling situation to the next. I have set up my business, Quantum Leaps Consulting, to help positive and motivated people, as individuals or in a corporate environment, turn potential into performance. Again, you have to be willing to do what it takes, but you can most certainly make changes in your life for the better.

Have you ever seen one of those people that can chop through a stack of boards, ice, or concrete with their bare hands or even their forehead? Well, the keys to this task are belief, will, and commitment. If they were not willing to go all out, they would not generate enough force to break through the surfaces, thereby releasing the resistance and avoiding serious injury. Now these people have undergone a great deal of training, and I am not recommending that you set up blocks of ice in your garage and start head-butting them to impress your neighbors. I am using this as a metaphor to demonstrate that you must fully commit to what you want and only then will you have the necessary force to carry you through and achieve your goals.
