Oh how Monday always rolls around again and again. As you read this, I’m sure you’re tired, maybe you’re having your coffee or haven’t even gotten out of bed yet, but with your cranky pants in all – you’re all missing something. What you’re fighting through right now is the obstacle in the way of your success. The tiredness, the wish to be shipwrecked on a deserted island, the dread of dragging your ass to work – that’s all that stands in between you and your next big opportunity. When you put it into perspective, and look to the bigger picture (yes you in that big corner office in 5-10years or walking across the stage with your PHD), the drive to work, your job itself, the reading, studying and papers seem so small.
The work you put in today is the reward you will receive in the future. Opportunities are work, would you just give someone $100 for no reason? I know I sure don’t throw my money away – at least that way. So this week, remind yourself of your goals and what your want in your future. You may not know how to get there, but it’s certainly not going to be handed to you. Keep working hard, so when opportunity knocks, you’re there to hear it.
