Not everyone has the opportunity to work in a career that ignites them and leads them to passion daily, at that’s okay! But for those that do wish they could be in a passionate role and aren’t, but see others they know that are, bitterness can arise. And if it does, it is time to reevaluate your goals and passions and if you are choosing to take a gamble on those passions or if you are going to choose to remain in the resentment because you aren’t quite ready for the work.
Bitterness and resentment become a deep, black hole that we all can get stuck in. If we allow bitterness to, it will take over our minds and our lives! It will begin to take over the happiness that we deserve to have.
Begin by slowing the process down and listen to your feelings; pause to ask yourself some questions, reflect on your feelings, and listen to what your gut is telling you. That self-coaching truly leads you to being able to make leaps and bounds of forward motion to moving out of any bitterness.
The choice to move out of the bitter darkness is up to you; nobody can make it for you.
Feelings of overwhelm are not uncommon in the professional world, especially for entrepreneurs! But the way we choose to handle the overwhelm is most important.

Learning how to implement these lasting habits will guide you to creating more peace--and I know we all strive for more peace!
Listen to this week's episode of Change by Choice to learn about the disciplines that are vital in creating peace rather than overwhelm.
