Career Burnout: Does it Have You in the Dumps?

In our society, something called career burnout is a typical phenomenon. Most of us wrongfully presume that career burnout results from working excessive, too long, or too hard. But this is not true about being successful in life, you don’t have to experience burnout stress.

Occupational burnout, or if you prefer, professional burnout, comes not from an absence of time, but from an absence of function.

Before you read further consider what the Course in Miracles asks us to contemplate: “There is no need to learn through pain. And gentle lessons are acquired joyously, and are remembered gladly.”

Doesn’t that statement taken from the heart make you look at life more comfortably?

Have you ever discovered that when you’re on fire with enthusiasm for something you want to accomplish, you’re able to do it constantly for hours or days at a time?

The volume of work you can achieve makes those regular work duties fade by contrast.

You experience no career burnout.

Burnout stress has nothing to do with being too hectic. If you want to prevent experiencing signs of burnout, all you have to do is to reclaim your sense of purpose and sense of self.

You might require inspirational teachings. Basically, motivation and deeply knowing your inner self is being aware why you’re doing something.

This is why I always urge my friends to find mindfulness meditation techniques that are comfortable for you.

If you have a compelling sufficient “why,” the “how” will look after itself, and you’ll find inner resources you never ever understood you possessed, generating unforeseen energy, enthusiasm, and concepts which will lead you towards your objectives.

In all things in life and relating to your life itself, understand your passions, purpose, and function.

Do you have Signs of a Burnout about to Strike you?

Once you get an answer, focus on that response while you go about achieving the task at hand in front of you.

Look deeply within as far as you can into that concern—asking your inner Guide—the Holy Spirit, as the Course in Miracles teaches, till the answers you get are pleasing and compelling.

As a person striving for being successful in life, you may discover yourself experiencing career burnout while doing a lot of research.

If not, keep asking more questions.

Discover the link between exactly what you’re doing and what you eventually want while still being successful in life. Listen quietly within.

Having a sense of purpose in life is a very helpful thought process for remaining determined and being happy.

To understand your life purpose or function, ask yourself these questions:

  • Why am I here?
  • Exactly what do I need to contribute to the world?
  • Where will my influence be felt?
  • What am I good at?
  • What do I enjoy doing?
  • For exactly what would I prefer to be known?
  • Who do I wish to be like?
  • When am I the happiest?

Ask yourself if your everyday activities support that life of purpose when believe you’ve discovered your life function.

  • Are you living a life of purpose?
  • Are you utilizing your time wisely to produce the results you want in life?

If not, possibly you should rethink how you are spending your time.

For me, I was bored and anxious much of the day, and, although I was outwardly successful, I felt no joy from my success. I was experiencing burnout stress.

None of my techniques made an enduring impact on my life.

Then I attempted to seek what I’ve described above.

Asking myself questions about exactly what I enjoyed, what I felt was my distinct contribution to the world, when I felt most alive, it ended up being clear that my pleasure was in taking a trip, lecturing, and entertaining big groups of individuals.

I, then, totally excelled at getting my book series written from prison, into the hands of a mainstream publisher!

But this is not about me, it’s about you, and what you can do now to begin the life you want without stress. And I want to help you get there.

Things perhaps keeping you from Letting Go of Burnout Stress

If addiction of any kind is in the way, then go here.

If it’s alcohol abuse or even quitting smoking give these resources a good try. 

A woman and her husband brought love back to their marriage trouble from this. And the same couple experienced fun weight-loss with yoga from this, and my point is, just get over having burnout stress. 

You can do it, and I’m pulling for you!

Now that I’m done being a cheerleader (har, har), consider your options, please.

I recognized my life function, or a life of purpose, as being to educate, entertain and motivate groups of people, and to do it in an ever changing environment, including travel and interaction with special, unusual people from all walks of life.

Plainly, the life I was living used none of the qualities I felt were needed for my function.

I resolved instantly to change my life, to discover an outlet for my skills and talents, and to contribute what I felt I was meant to add to the world in my own distinct method.

Watch out for Guilt

Every one of us has that “Something” within, as the Course in Miracles states, which sets us apart from all other people on this world.

Not just do you need to not feel guilty about developing your life to express that special present, you will probably feel guilty if you’re not doing that.

Take the time to discover your purpose, and start to live your life in support of that function.

Remember, to get over the hump of career burnout, take the time to find your function, your life purpose, and start to live your life in support of that purpose.

(Please note I also recommend this related article on finding your passion and purpose in life by examples of performance goals.)
