PILLAR III: WORK

Do you hate your job so much it hurts? Are your abilities wasted? Do you feel like you’ve “sold out?”

Or maybe it’s not your job that’s the problem, but the fact that your boss doesn’t appreciate you, passing you over time and time again for that promotion or raise?

Your job is the activity you spend the most time doing and as much as we sometimes hate to admit it, it says a lot about who we are.

A man’s work is central to his purpose, and it’s the central pillar of Introvert Unbound.

We’ve all got to make ends meet, but ultimately, without a sense of meaning in your work, you’ll feel empty inside and nothing – not alcohol, not sex, not drugs – will fill that void.

For most of my adult life I worked for bosses who made poor use of my skills and abilities while paying me nowhere near what I deserved. Over time, I learned how to stand up for myself, have a say in deciding my daily tasks, and leverage my quality work for better pay.

For a while, I took pride in improving the businesses I worked for, however I finally realized my vision would be best fulfilled by striking out on my own.

These days I’m my own boss, working on projects I love and making a real difference in the world, while profiting from several income streams. I work from home, make my own hours, and haven’t used an alarm clock in years!

Maybe you’ve got a job you like, but feel like you’re not advancing as quickly in it as you’d like. In that case, it might be simply be a matter of tweaking how you interact with your boss and co-workers. As introverts, we tend to do excellent work, but our soft spokenness and aversion to socializing means we’re often passed over for that raise or promotion.

I will teach you how to recognize the areas in which you’re not representing yourself well, develop your assertiveness, and improve the social dynamics that will gain you respect from managers and peers, and ultimately help you advance in your field.

Or if you’re tired of the rat race altogether, I can guide you through the creative process of figuring out the work you’re meant to do, how to establish yourself in that field, and generate a steady income.

Either way, it’s time to find your calling as The Introvert Unbound.
