Ok, so you've decided that Mondays are simply not your thing. Right, fair enough.
Feel like you should do something about it? Please, read on.
Before we begin, let me set up a mood for this session.
Alright, here we go.
By the time this song is over, you should be able to get some answers. If you still have a couple of those left, take your time to contemplate on it.
So, you're not really a Monday person? I wish that didn't sound so awfully familiar.
You get up early in the morning, floss, grab the first thing in your wardrobe and pick your battles for the day. Your day starts by not wanting to start another day.
Coffee? Tea? I'm guessing anything that makes you alert enough to cross the street will do, or at least the second best thing that would help you not regret your choices later that day.
That works...up to some degree. But what about Monday?
Monday is just another day of the week
Alright, here's the deal. Nobody loves hearing this, but people usually don't like listening to all sorts of things. Truth bombs are the ultimate taboo in today's society.
WE ALL HATE MONDAYS! ... Or, at least, we used to.
Yeah, not really a revelation, but still, someone has to say it out loud.
We cringe at the very thought of it, but how many out there actually do something to change that? Is there something else we're missing out here? Is there a hidden wisdom lying somewhere within this notion we call Monday or is this all there really is?
Here's a thought: Monday is just a day, nothing more. Unless you give it another meaning.
Is it really Monday you're so disgusted about or the way the society tells us we should perceive it?
Now that I mention it, why not blame it on capitalism?!
Sure, we all love a good old villain. Someone or something we can all point our fingers at. As long as it's pointing away from ourselves, it's all good. That way we can all go back to our usual daily dose of self loath and be, strangely enough, happy about it.
Don't like your job? - Do something about it!
Before we move on, try asking yourself the following questions:
∙What is the thing you dislike the most about this job?
∙What made you apply for that specific job in the first place?
∙Are you taking the necessary steps towards changing the current state of things?
Fear can be a grand motivator, such as in times we are desperately searching for a solution to our house or car payment before reaching the deadline, or it can be our greatest nemesis that prevents us from taking the necessary leap towards creating a better future.
We all fear the unknown. It is in our nature to be cautious of things we do not know or understand, so don't over stress about it more than the case itself requires you to.
Do the following instead:
Try putting things into perspective
Setting a specific goal helps you plan things in advance, and overall, make Mondays less unbearable.
If you wake up every day with the idea that you're actively contributing to a different outcome of the overall course of your life, somehow...Mondays stop being so seemingly painful and actually start making sense.
If you go to work thinking how it's all going to end at one point and it is not the ultimate achievement you set out for yourself, but rather a means to something greater than it is at this point, the way you perceive things suddenly begins to shift toward something better, more promising.
Something you would be willing to put effort in achieving.
So, you see, you have a rather simple choice here.
You can either go back to your crappy, though safe, job and do what you believe is the only promising thing out there, or you get to try another way that is less predictive, but a lot more fulfilling.
It all depends on what kind of a person you are, really. Take your time to think things through. See which of the two you are willing to go for and start acting accordingly.
One thing is for sure - It's not about Mondays, it's about you,
