Be Grateful For Work – 5 Reasons


It is fantastic to know there are at least five reasons to be grateful for work.

Each day there are people who go to work and spend the day complaining and wishing they were any place else in the world. We all have people like this at our places of employment or working for us. None of us like these people. I must confess, I was once one of these people. When I was 19 I had a job that I did not like. Each day I would go to work and let all my co-workers and supervisors know that I was not happy at work. One day the supervisor had enough of me and told me that since I was so unhappy working for the company, I was fired and could go home. I was young and inexperienced so I was shocked. On a side note, when you apply for unemployment insurance and tell the unemployment office that you were fired because you were not happy, they do not believe you.

Almost every place of employment has employees who are not happy to be at work, who wish they did not work. If you are one of these people, let today be the day you make a change and start being grateful for work. Be grateful for work, because work does the following things:

It is always important to keep in mind that while misery loves company, no one wants to be that company. If you are not grateful for the work you have, go find other work. After all, most people do not have infinite financial resources. As a result, people must work. One of the best ways to ensure continues employment is to express gratitude for the work you have. It is human nature to do a better job and to take better care of things we are grateful to have. When your employer and co-workers know that you are grateful for your work, you appear to be a more valuable employee to have around. The more valuable you are seen as an employee, the more likely you are to remain employed.
