Tommy had been unemployed for months, and his savings were now non-existent. He had applied to countless job openings but hadn't received any responses. He was getting desperate and needed to find a job that would provide him with a livable wage.
One day, he saw a flyer at the grocery store advertising for a position at a local factory. The job required manual labor, but it paid well, and he knew he had the physical ability to do it. Tommy immediately applied and was called in for an interview.
At the interview, Tommy was nervous but determined. He answered all the questions honestly and confidently, and to his surprise, he was offered the job. The pay was more than he had expected, and he was thrilled to finally earn a livable wage.
Tommy worked hard every day, showing up on time and putting in his best effort. The work was tiring and demanding, but he didn't complain. He was grateful for the opportunity to step inside the bank every week with a livable wage in his pocket. He smiled at the thought that he was doing it; he was finally providing for himself and his family.
Over time, Tommy's hard work paid off. He was promoted to a higher position, and his salary increased even more. He felt proud of his accomplishments and was grateful for the opportunity that the factory had given him. Years later, Tommy looked back on that moment at the grocery store when he had seen the flyer for the job. He realized that sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of determination and a willingness to work hard to earn a livable wage and achieve your goals. #now #believe #earnings
An old coworker-turned-good-friend was recently looking for a job. She’d been at her job for a few years, but it had turned very toxic. To the point she would feel despair every morning before going in. None of her coworkers were happy either, it was that type of environment. She applied to hundreds of places for about 6 months. She applied to different industries too, some places she had direct experience, other places she would be doing completely different things. She got two offers, one in her industry and the other one at a place she didn’t have much experience in but was very interested in. There was a $10K difference between offers, amongst other things:
- Offer 1: 5K more than she earned
- Offer 2: 5K less than she earned
- Offer 1: current industry, lots of experience.
- Offer 2: new industry, build her way up.
- Offer 1: wearing many hats, really stressful
- Offer 2: clarified focus and direction
- Offer 1: current employee told her it was a toxic environment
- Offer 2: She liked everyone she met through her interviews
Want to guess which offer she took? Offer 2 was the winner.
This got me thinking about what people really care about when comparing jobs, pay rates and benefits. My friend clearly sees a healthy work environment as a top priority in her case, which is why she was happy with offer 2.
I need a good job
I dont mind a pay cut if I dont have to drive more than 20 miles in very busy high ways and in traffics. That was another stress for me. I had a stressful job in a toxic environment that every morning I feel nauseated just thinking of going to work. Before I entered the work area I need to meditate to give me strength and peace.
