Are you serious
about your career? Or obsessed with it? If it is the latter, then you are in big trouble, lady.
Not only will it blight your
home and house, your health will go down hill too.
But sadly, most workaholics are in denial. Take the first step. Admit and
accept your problem. And then go about solving it.
Listen to what your family and friends say about
your working habits. Are you missing out on a lot of social occasions because of your job? Are they getting together without you very
Are your personal relationships faltering? Do people take your absence for granted or do
they resent it? Are you being informed about small events and happenings in the family circle?
yourself honestly what else are you interested in, besides your job?
If you can
honestly see that your life is not balanced, then you are indeed walking down the wrong path in life. Important as a career is in our
lives, it shouldn`t be the only thing that matters.
Why deny yourself a wholesome personality? Why not include some hobbies,
interests and relationships to make life more enjoyable?
Workaholics tend to be unhealthy people. For one, they endure more
stress. Secondly they don`t make time to exercise or work out. And they don`t pay attention to what they eat. They grab a bite when
they need food. More often than not, it isn`t a healthy snack.
Why would anyone want to put off enjoying life till they have
retired? That`s more than two thirds of life having gone by! Are you ever going to relive your youth? Or watch your children grow?
Can you make up for all the missed milestones in your life?
It has been clinically proved that being a workaholic has nothing
to do with enjoying your job. It`s viewed as an obsession that deprives you of the other aspects of life.
So shed your
fixation and start living again. Life is waiting for you. All of it.
