I deserve this you know !!!!!

21 Sep

If you have ever worked at a job for any amount of time I will
guarantee you that you have heard somebody say, at least once “I have
worked for this company for blah blah blah la-di-freeking-da
years…that now I deserve a raise.” Or, you have heard the variations
or that sentiment that because they have worked at their job for a
period of time without yet managing to be fired they now have a right
to a promotion. A right to a better office. A right to everything
because they figure that by simply showing up relatively on time and
not screwing anything up so vastly that they have somehow become the
model for the entitled ideal employee. So what does the employee
deserve, and what are the rights of this person?

How about they have the right to do their job? How about they have the
right to travel to China see what hard work is all about? How about
the right of the company to make profit and stay in business so you
can support your over active spending habits? How about that you have
the right to be better than everyone and improve who you are?

I tell you most people who have worked in a company for a long time
have forgotten what its like to improve their skills and have gotten
into this thing called punch in, punch out and I am done. The sad
thing is they get pissed off when the company fires them and hires
someone cheaper. Yes it’s because you did not deserve the raise in the
first place and the only reason you even received your 3% or what
ever is simply because A) You live in Canada or some country that
gives you undeserved entitlement or B) They have grown accustomed to
giving it and you expecting it. The real winners are those who change
things, change their life prove that they are indispensable and can
not simply be changed or replaced. Quit your whining and mopping and
feeling sorry for your self. If this is the road you take then this is
the outcome you deserve. As the saying goes; You dug it, so jump in.

Having said that it’s not like some people have taken risks and tried
to change their life and just got hit with stupid bad luck. It
happens, and sometimes more than not but if we quit trying then we
fall into the routine and become complacent. If you truly hate your
job or simply not like it then quit. Find another job or better yet
stop whining about it. The easiest thing to do is to stop doing
something. Honestly no one cares and after a while you have become
boring news and not many people want to listen to you.

Change does not come to people, people go to change and they make
something of them selves.
