I often wonder how our society manages to function as well as it does. There is a magnificent structure to how it all works. Every day, people get up and go to work. Some go because they have to go in order to get paid so they can simply survive. Others go because they love what they do and can’t wait to get back to the office each day. In between these two extremes we have the rest of the human race, those of us who are, in a nutshell, compelled to become educated enough to learn a task, and then do whatever this task is every day to make just enough money to survive.
What I really wonder about is how so many of us manage to get up and go to work without suffering the mental breakdown that seems inevitable working in our society. This may sound like a dark and depressing way to begin a motivational book but it’s not. Please understand: what you are about to read is not about how to just survive in a dysfunctional corporate world. This book is about how to love your job and love what you do. Don’t get me wrong, working can be very hard, and dealing with difficult bosses and coworkers can drive you to the fantasizing about flipping your desk over and storming out of the office in a rage. But thankfully, few people actually freak out and do this. There are very few people who end up homeless because they physically and mentally can’t function in corporate America.
Most of us manage to get out the door and show up ready to work day after day, and we somehow just get by. Well, that is not good enough! This is your life we are talking about. You owe it to yourself to do more than simply survive corporate America. You deserve to be a tremendous success at your job. You deserve to be significantly rewarded for your effort. Most important, you deserve to get the recognition you have earned.
This book will tell you what you can do, both right now, and in the long-term to take your career to the next level. This book will inspire you to re-think how you relate to your coworkers and bosses. It will help you realize the power you have to be successful at work and truly happy at your job.
