3 changes to make so you wake up and smile when you think about work

Everyone deserves to be in a job they love. But not everyone is in a role that makes them happy. If you dream of waking up and smiling when you think about your work, here are 3 essential changes you need to make to achieve it.

  • Work out your bottom line.

How much income do you really need to generate each month to pay the bills? For many people, you usually need less than you think. It is easy to get trapped by money misconceptions and the belief that somehow salary is related to happiness. Salary and happiness are not synonymous at all. Let go of this misconception and you’ll discover many opportunities that you may have never considered.

  • Work out what you love.

How much do you really LOVE doing your current job? Many people are either indifferent to their work or actually hate it. Imagine if you did something you really enjoyed doing. By finding out what really aligns with your values, interests and skills, you are far more likely to love what you do each day.

  • Work out if you need to change paths.

There is no point being stuck doing something that makes you miserable. If you want to wake up and smile when you think about work, then you need to be in the right role that fits what you want from life. If you are on the wrong path, put plans in place to make the change. Everyone deserves to be in a job they love.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
