There are employees of organisations around the world that this phrase (I HATE MY JOB!) is very common in their mouths. I would make an assumption (remember this is an assumption) that the estimate of people who hate their jobs or who say this are 80% of employees of organisations. 

Many complain because of the work schedule, the work load, the time they have to get up to leave for work, their bosses, ''I don't have time for myself'', ''I don't have time for my family'', the pay is too small, I hardly save with this little pay, the pay is big yeah but there is no time to enjoy the money, I work so hard and I am paid so little, ''I am been intimated at the office'', my colleagues are medicores or they are too envious of me, and the list pretty much goes on and on. 

Many a times you ask people, how was your day? How was work today? And the response is ''same old... I just can't wait to leave. I hate my job so much''. 
Many fail to actual sit down and really think deep and answer these question- before you got the job, what were you doing? Before you got this job, how was life for you? How did you react when you were called for an interview after having applied to millions of organisations? Can you remember the day you were given your offer letter or letter of appointment and told that you have gotten the job? How did you react? Can you remember the feeling you heard when you were first told that you got the job? ...And the list pretty much goes on and on.

Recently, I was opportuned to have a talk with someone who is in a managerial position in his organisation and he said ''whenever people complain that they hate their jobs, he asks the human resource department to take them to the room they were interviewed in an offered the job... and leave them there for some minutes for them to remember all over again what that day was like for them when they got the job and how they felt''. He went on to say ''What people fail to understand is that, if they leave, 1 million and one people will be ready to occupy their position within the twinkle of an eye. Also, how sure are they that they will get a better one if they leave? However, if they have a better option/offer, I will always wish them the very best''. 

The sad truth is that, he is 100% right. Have you ever sat down to say, Lord, I am thankful for this job that you have given me. I am thankful for a sense of independence. I am thankful that I have to wake up every morning, dress up and head to work. I am thankful that I have the assurance that every month, my bank account will be credited, Though it is little for now but I am thankful. Though my work environment or work load isn't what I dreamed of or hoped for, Lord I am still thankful and I am trusting you for a better one. 

The truth is, if you remember how long it took you to get a job, you will be thankful for the job you have. Even if, you got the job immediately after you left school, you should still be thankful because many of the people who graduated with you or before you are without jobs. Do you know that there are people wishing to be in your shoes for just one second? 

The honest truth is that, many do not know the value of what they have till they lose it. So rather than continuing to say ''I HATE MY JOB'' why not say, I AM THANKFUL FOR THE JOB I HAVE AND I HOPEFUL FOR A BETTER ONE. 

The secret behind being thankful is that it makes you realise how truly blessed you are and it allows God open His windows of heaven to you to give you more than what you truly deserve. 

I hope you were inspired to restrain from saying I HATE MY JOB to I AM THANKFUL FOR MY JOB.
