and believe me, it will love you back. A lot of people are jobless, lucky are we who still have a job. So instead of hating your job learn to love them. Appreciate the fact that it still pays you, and puts food in your plate. Let's value our work. ;)

You are so right. I have not had a job in two years now and its quite frustrating to hear people say they hate their jobs. I have worked previously for 32 years and now not having a job its hard to deal with. People should be grateful for having a job nowadays to pay their bills and have a roof over their heads and food on the table.

This is an inspiring post santosmarichrisWe must be satisfied on what we have. While it is good for wishing more, we must still be thankful that we have a job that can answer our money needs. It was not an easy thing to be a teacher. I have to do so many things like writing lesson plan, preparing visual aids, attending student's need if they face some troubles, participating in school activities, and many more. My salary is not appropriate to all those hard works but I still feel lucky I am teaching. Whenever I go out the street and see people looking for job but haven't found any, I feel luckier. Perhaps, they can accept even low salaries just to have money to buy foods for their family.Whenever I face problems on schools, I just see it as a challenge and less of a burden. I just think that this will help me more in my profession. Counting blessings is what I sometimes do whenever I feel down and it really gives a sense of relief and happiness.

Yes, I agree. Sometimes we miss golden opportunities that come up for some reasons. Before we love our work, we must know what kind of job we fit in. If you do something that is not your passion, of course, you can`t love your job

Well Marichis, I agree to you but only to a certain point. Love your job if you have no choice, if you don't have any alternative, if it pays or compensates you well. But I'm telling it's not always good to love your work and your company, because you don't know until when the company loves. If your work seems to be overboard and the company treats you not the way an employee should be treated, then it's better to get let go of that job. If there's a better and greener opportunity, then why not consider jumping to it.

I firmly believe that the secret of success in any job is when you love your job. No matter how difficult a task may seem if you put your interest into it things will come in easy for you. If you love and enjoy your job there is no reason for you not to excel in your performance. On the other hand, if you hate what you are doing, then laziness, procrastination and absenteeism will come into play which results in FAILURE. Have a nice day!

It's intelligent to do so. Don't complain when you are still work on it. If you really frustrated by it, try to change instead of complaining. No place will want an employee complain all day.

i agree with that marichris. there are a lot of people who complains about there work that sometimes with too much complaining they can not perform well for the job and eventually loss it. when they are jobless already they will feeling regret and they wish they just loved their job. then when they have a new job they will complain again. i know someone who is like that. there is no satisfaction in heart and mind. when you love your work a positive energy will flow to you. learn to appreciate what is at hand and you will surely enjoy every minute of it.

Hi there Marichris Santos! You're right. Sometimes, we're too busy whining and complaining that we forget to do our best in order to make the most of our job. Sometimes, we feel like it's too hard, we're underpaid, we deserve better and we can find a better job not giving ourselves much time to think, re-evaluate the situation and be thankful of our employment.
