At least majority of the population in the world today are underemployed from their degrees. People working a job that they have no love for could affect their productivity and proactivity. However, keeping a positive attitude at work requires self-determination, and a passion to become successful with one’s goals.
1. The Positives of Work
Focus on your job’s positive aspects. If you are in marketing, but you would rather do artworks and earn creatively, focus on the scenery from your desk and inspire yourself. Think of the investments you could make with your money relevant to your end objective. Ask yourself why you need the underemployed job. Enjoy the small privileges, such as free coffee, air-conditioning and others, which could help boost your mood.
Talking to co-workers about your complaints to improving your performance can give you a good mood to work. Finding solutions can help ease the worry and anxiousness that comes with your possible perceived personal incompetence when doing your job. Discuss things, complaints and performance objectively and you will bear fruits of success.
3. Take Control
Remember, the company does not own you completely and you have autonomy over your choices in doing your task. All the company wants is results done in an ethical and proper manner dictated, but the attitude in doing the task depends on you.
