Frustrations occur when our expectations don’t line up with our reality. I think this is why so many people are disenchanted by their workplaces. They expect their company to meet their needs, but they are left unfulfilled.
A paycheque at the end of the week is the reason most us wake up early on Monday morning, but why some people love their jobs and others hate theirs has little to do with what’s listed on a bank statement.
Great companies meet our other needs, the ones we don’t realize we have. They make us feel loved by co-workers, they inspire us to push our boundaries, they make us passionate about our work, they give us a reason to rise above the stress and frustration of the day-to-day struggles.
Change the reality and notice the difference.
