Do you sometimes feel like you are drained by what you do every day? Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you want to quit your job simply because you don’t feel like doing it anymore? Well, depending on what makes you feel stressed or overworked, yet it’s your job, experts say there are things that you probably need to work on in order to love what you do. For instance, Emmanuela Mahoro, a psychologist says although it’s natural for one to be stressed about their job because of too much to accomplish within a given time, it’s also important to find out where the problem is. Once this is done, she says one finds a way or steps to help get a solution on time. “The key is to identify where the real pain points are in your career. Only then can you make the changes you need to make to ultimately find career success or happiness,” she says. Prince Aime Lionel Murara, the deputy national coordinator in charge of operations and partnership in Education for Nations and Humanitarian Africa (ENHA) says going beyond what you are asked for or what is required of you can also spice things up. This, he says will help others find value in what you do, which provides a conducive environment to work from. “When others recognise and love your zeal, this is one way to keep you motivated in what you are doing because others are looking up to you for their success too,” he says. Besides, he says that one needs to as well give their job 100 per cent in all aspects of their professional life. Murara mentions that when you start making progress, you’ll realise the secret for career growth and happiness starts with this kind of motivation. Aminadhad Niyonshuti, a trainer and educator says when you want to find happiness in your career, there is need to attend workshops and training that relates to what you do. This, he says, will help you enhance and develop your skills as you will be able to learn new, valuable skills that will prove that you are willing to take that extra step in order to get ahead. “One can start by figuring out what areas you think you should improve in. Regardless of your interest, there are workshops and seminars for everything that can impact your confidence, therefore ensuring you are happy in doing what you do best,” he says. In addition to this, he says that looking for a mentor is also beneficial as they will help guide and support you in every step you make in life. “It is important to find someone who has extensive experience in your field and ask them if they would mind being your mentor. This will help you learn to enjoy and love what you are doing,” he says. How to be happy at work Mahoro says work is part of your life, and being happy while working is important for both your mental and psychological life. As a psychologist, she believes the first step to achieving happiness at work is to take things the way they are and never complain over petty issues. She says that most of the time people miss out on happiness simply by finding ways of complaining, this kind of behavior makes your working environment difficult for you to build some joy and happiness. Mahoro says this can be as simple as staying away from negativity and those with negative energy, and that if there is a need to discuss some challenges you are facing, then, finding a way to handle it is vital. Murara also says finding connections is important as you understand your work starting from where you fit in within your organisation to how you contribute to its success.
