It's all perspective.
Do you hate your job and/or work in a challenging environment? The commonly used adage of looking at the glass as half full or half empty can easily apply to these types of situations--if you can challenge yourself to re-examine your existence in the workplace. One of my favorite sayings is by author Wayne Dyer: "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." If you can change your perspective about a situation, you alter how it affects you. Most of our challenges at work persist because we become emotionally invested in the events that frustrate us. You can choose not to be reactionary or impulsive, but methodical, strategic, and even engaging. Even more, changing your perspective not only alters how you see a situation, it enhances how you perform, which in the end is the ultimate game-changer on the job.
