like a victim
But I didn't
do myself any good feeling sorry for myself. I got myself
a reputation as someone who always complained. I should
have looked on the positive side. That job gave me a whole
new career direction, and got me out of work I hated.
It led onto something even better. By building on what
I'd learnt, the boss at the next job snapped me up because
I'd learnt some pretty unique stuff that he needed.
I did consider
how good they'd been to me sometimes, but only after I
left did I consider it properly. I did the right thing,
as someone on the group left shortly before
me. Someone else left just after. From a group of five
that left them with problems.
I kept thinking it was someone
else's fault I had too much work. It was my fault for
staying there. I used the opportunity and moved onto something
better. Even if I hadn't been able to do that, it was

The more you feel sorry for
yourself, the worse your life gets. The more positive
your outlook, the better it gets. Many of us have it pretty
easy, yet we keep complaining. Like me. Admire the ones
who really have had it hard, yet keep on with little (in
many cases no) complaint.
You become what you think
you are. Think negative, and you'll stay negative. You
won't change overnight, but if you try to concentrate
on the positive, and each day improve a little, things
will improve and you'll feel better.
Act instead of talking about
it. No more excuses. If you think things really are that
bad, do something about it. Find another job. Get that
qualification for a career change or improvement. Develop
that business idea. If it doesn't work (and if you know
you've given it the hard work it deserves), learn from
it and move onto the next business idea.
Don't wish you were other
people. If you think they're better than you, work hard
to make yourself better than them. Or concentrate on the
positive - those things where you're already better off
