One vital reason to survive in the organization is happiness, whether you get it from your colleagues who eventually became your friends, total benefits you are receiving or just because of the salary that can pay the tuition fees of your children.It's the total package actually.
Happiness as what others told me is subjective. Somebody might be happy at his job in the same company you have but others might be not with the different factors to be considered.
According to Forbes, “To achieve greater happiness at work, you don't need your boss to stop calling you at night. You don't need to make more money. You don't need to follow your dream of being a sommelier, or running a B&B in Vermont. So says Srikumar Rao, the author of Happiness at Work. The biggest obstacle to happiness is simply your belief that you're the prisoner of circumstance, powerless before the things that happen to you, he says. "We create our own experience," he adds.
So the question is for you? Are you happy at Work? If you will revert back the question to me I will say YES. One thing is that I am always thankful and grateful since the head of this organization gave trust and respect to whatever suggestions and proposals I have for the company. Ok let’s check the top 10 reasons why I am Happy at Work.
1. I am doing what I love to do which is Marketing.
2. I am grateful because I have a job.
3. I am thankful that a group of people are trusting me.
