I was standing around in an area that has a bus stop frequently used by workers from both the public and private sectors. And on that fateful day, all I heard from those workers who were going home after closing from work was complaint and lamentation about their jobs and their pay. Almost every one of them seemed miserable and dissatisfied with their job and the income they were getting from it.
This is the mindset of average people – to complain about their jobs and the satisfaction they get from it. No matter what you do, magnify to yourself the importance of your work. There are no small jobs only small workers. Most people fail to realize that when you do your job haphazardly or in a mean way, it doesn’t reflect the job, but it does reflect you.

For some, maybe it’s a relationship, and we are scared that we aren’t attractive enough, or good enough for the people we love. Whatever it is you desire but you are too afraid or in doubt to take action, what if you knew you couldn’t fail, will you still be afraid to act? I guess not!
