That one co-worker…

I’m pretty sure we all can relate in someway about that one co-worker who bitches all the time (excuse my french), talks about everyone (Including you), has their nose in everyone’s business (Including yours), is miserable all the time, think they know it all, and won’t hesitate to throw you under the bus. If you haven’t experienced these types of people well lucky you.

For me personally I’ve experienced a couple. Everyday the same shit day in and day out with these people. Seems like their never satisfied. Every time you turn around their nose is in someone else’s business, worrying about what so and so did and how they did it. You can’t even afford to make a minuscule mistake around that person. It gives them more ammo to talk about you behind your back, and then they have the nerve to come talk about someone else to you.

Soon as something goes wrong which doesn’t necessarily has to be a serious matter, they seem to get some type of satisfaction of trying to throw you under the bus. They never can take the blame for their own mistakes. There’s always a reason on why it happened. For some reason these people come with a lot of smart remarks, they can dish it out but can’t take it.

Over time all the nagging, bitching, blaming, crying, complaining, and anything else you can think of that fit’s the mold of this interesting individual builds up. Then eventually you snap and now you’re looking like the bad guy. It’s like that saying that sorta goes along the lines of “the person initiating the problem never gets caught it’s always the person reacting.” But for the most part it’s pretty easy to feel everyone out and weed out the snakes early on. Just remember to keep a far distance.

Dear toxic coworker,

I’ll speak for everyone against your ignorance. Nobody wants to be around your negative energy. You are the problem. Stop minding everyone else’s business and get your own shit together. Check yourself before you come trying to contaminate the workplace!!!

Positive Vibes Only!!! Thank You!!!

Where the magic happens…

What keeps an individual trapped inside that imaginary place we call a comfort zone???

Is it fear? The fear of possible failure? The fear of the unknown? The fear of others opinions?

To often people get stuck in a place that feels comfortable but in a sense they could be robbing themselves of their true potential. Stepping out of that imaginary box is definitely a scary and uncomfortable feeling due to the fact that you’ll be doing things you’re not used to doing on a regular basis.

You might find yourself making more phone calls, meeting with various people, working odd hours of the day, feeling overwhelmed, nervous, having moment’s when you just want to throw in the towel and give up. Be we all know great thing’s don’t come easy.

Think of how many people stayed in that little imaginary box and missed out on opportunities to write the next best-selling book, had an idea for the next best invention, become the next best comedian, the next great actor, starting up that next fortune 500 company, pursuing a career doing something they truly love!!! The list goes on, all these things plus more are possible but most never come to light for the simple fact that people hate feeling uncomfortable!!!

Where the magic happens is on the outside.

 ‚Äč
There you will find things like abundance, fulfillment, excitement, opportunity, freedom, passion, success, even that uncomfortable feeling which is all part of the process when deciding to step outside the boundaries of the known to the unknown. Don’t be the person who lives behind fear and regrets it all in the end. Don’t deprive the world of the possible gifts and talents you have to offer because of some imaginary place created by the mind. And never settle for less the sky is the limit.

In the voice of the great Wayne Gretzky “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” 

But… But… But…

How often do you hear people say they want to do something and then sell thier own self short with the word but???
I hear it to often, people wanting more, wanting better, wanting to accomplish thing’s in life but…

  • I want to go to school but…
  • I want to change careers but…
  • I want to start exercising but…
  • I want to eat healthier but…
  • I want to travel more but…
  • I want to start a business but…
  • I want to start a blog but…
  • I want to write a book but..
  • I want to make six figures but…
  • But… But… But… But… But!!!…

I once had a conversation with a friend who had a strong desire to attend college, but in his words, “Yea I want to go to school for a degree but… Im to old.” By the way this person was only in thier mid 30’s which I considered to be fairly young!!! Now I know the body goes through changes as you get older and you can’t do certain things you once could do. (I’m not expecting some 60 year old guy to go try out for the New England Patriots). But saying your to old to do something is ridiculous to me and is common amongst alot of people in the world today. It shouldn’t matter if your 18 or 50, if you want to accomplish something, do it!!!

Or how about this one “I want a better job but… I don’t think anyone will hire me.” Well how would you know? Did you update your resume? Are you actually looking for better opportunities? Are you out networking? You can never be sure until you actually try. I can go on forever with the countless conversations that were interrupted with the word but that opened up the gateway for excuses.

Now don’t get me wrong here, I do understand that everyones situation is different due to different circumstances and events going on in ones life.

Example: It may be easier for someone to return to school that doesn’t have a family with young kids opposed to someone who does. Or it may be easier for someone with a stronger financial backing to get a business up and running like a storefront than someone who doesn’t.

But that doesn’t mean you sit back and make excuses. If you have to attend class once a week instead of five, sure it will take you longer than the person going five days a week, but eventually you’ll get there. It might take you a few years longer to get that storefront up and running as opposed to the person with a stronger financial advantage, but eventually you’ll get there.

So before you decide to but your way to an excuse, take a moment to relfect on what have you really done to achieve what it you desire.

As one of my favorite would say…

Snoozing before work

We all know that sound when your alarm clock goes off in the morning and you know you should be getting out of bed but instead you hit the snooze button a few times because you dread getting out of your warm comfortable cozy bed to get up and goto a job you really don’t want to attend.

That thought of calling off always sits in the back of your mind but you don’t go through with it. Now your twenty minutes behind schedule and your about to be late so your rushing to get yourself together.

Finally your out the door and halfway to work and you realize you left your wallet sitting on the kitchen table!!! Forgetting something is usually what happens when rushing, what a shitty start to the day.

End result your late, you really don’t wanna be at work, and you have no money for lunch.

I think majority can relate to the aftermath of the Snooze Button…
