I was talking to Marge, a woman I trained back in the days long gone bye, and she says, “95% of people who have jobs hate what they are doing for a living.”
Marge’s number may have been a little high, or a little low, but one thing is for sure, it ain’t far off. And it begs the question: Why?
There are many answers I could give, such as bad attitude, shiddy boss, change of heart, not enough moolah, negative environment, co-workers you can’t stand, not being heard, lack of creative expression, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.
All these reasons are valid, and when tossed together they don’t make for a scrumptious salad, even if you throw in some croutons and spicy dressing.
But one of the BIGGEST reasons for hating your job is the simple fact that a lot of people balk at someone else telling them what to do. It sucks having someone else tell you when to show up and when to leave. It sucks having to sit in meetings or listen to people drone on and on about their personal problems.
Even worse is the feeling of boredom; the “been there done that” scenario.
The great thing about writing and copywriting, assuming you’ve set yourself up for success correctly, is that you don’t have to deal with anyone you don’t want to deal with. You work when you want to work. You choose the time and the amount of work you want to do.
You can spend all day writing and creating, filled with splendiferous levels of energy, or you can write for five or ten minutes, here and there, throughout the day.
It’s all a mindset that you get to choose – and I cover it in illustrious detail in my most recent issue of Zen Mastery coaching newsletter.
I break the process down for you in such an enjoyable way that you will see why it’s a good idea to leave the past behind… when you’re ready.
P.S. My Original Email Copywriting Seminar is worth your time and energy as well. I show you how easy it is to knockout stellar copy within minutes, provided you are willing to listen to and trust that still voice within.
