Ever find yourself thinking Is it Friday yet?

One of the hallmarks of the wealthy is that they like or love what they do for a living. They look forward to each day. They look forward to work. They are passionate about what they do for a living.

Eighty-six percent in my study said they liked their job. Seven percent said they loved their job. Those who like or love their jobs make more money, accumulate more wealth and are happier than those who don’t like or love what they do for a living.

According to a 2012 survey conducted by “Big 4” accounting firm Deloitte, 80% of those surveyed did not like their jobs. In another survey conducted by Gallup in 2013, 63% of the 230,000 employees in the survey said they were unhappy with their jobs.

The reasons you hate your job:

  • Zombie Work – Your work is not challenging. You feel like you are doing the same thing day in and day out. Your work is boring. The people you work with are boring.
  • Hitler is Your Boss – You have a tyrant for a boss. These types of bosses are demanding, selfish, arrogant and have little interest in your opinions or feedback.
  • Poor Management – Those you report to are not good mentors. They are not interested in helping you grow and improve as an individual. You feel like a ship out in the ocean at work.
  • Destructive Feedback – The feedback from others you work with is destructive feedback and not constructive feedback. Destructive feedback is focused on your flaws, errors and mistakes. You learn nothing from destructive feedback and do not improve or grow as an individual.
  • Negative Environment – Those you work with gossip about each other. They see only problems. They complain, criticize or condemn other employees including their supervisors.
  • Low Wages – You make barely enough to survive and this negatively affects your personal life. You can’t pay your bills. You can’t take vacations. You can’t afford decent housing or a decent car to get you back and forth from work. Every day is a financial struggle. Oftentimes this may be the result of being in an industry that is in decline.

So, if you catch yourself asking Is it Friday yet? it’s because you don’t like your job. If you don’t like your job, you’ll never be happy and you’ll eke out a living, living paycheck to paycheck.

Finding a job that you like will make you happy. Plus you’ll devote more time to a job you like than to one you hate. As a result, you’ll do a better job and the extra effort you put into doing a good job will be reflected in the form of higher wages. The people who perform the best get paid the most and those who perform the worst get paid the least or find themselves hunting for a new job.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit, Money.com, India TV, News.com Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
