Are you a hard worker?
What does it mean to you to be a hard worker?
I have always been a hard worker. I give my all to everything that I do. When I no longer feel like I am, it’s usually a sign to me that it’s time to move on.
Being a hard worker to me means fulfilling all the duties of my job in a timely fashion. When there is time leftover, find more to do to go above and beyond.
11 months ago now I left my office job. The job that I far and away gave the most of myself to. Created, implemented, grew and then did it all again, again and again. I wasn’t appreciated or valued in any capacity and it was killing me inside.
I prayed on it for months! 4 before putting in my notice, 6 before actually leaving the position.
Hard work needed to take on a different look for me. I needed to put my work and effort into my household, my children and my husband. However, I still needed to bring in money.
I applied to be a Shipt Shopper and I got accepted. 2 months before I left my previous job and once I started, I knew that I could be successful at this. You have to have a go-getter mentality. You must be hardworking, personable and self motivated. It’s not “just grocery shopping”. No one is forcing you to put yourself on the schedule, it’s all on you.
Just last week, I started substitute teaching. Which is much the same. You can accept a job or not. Hardworking looks different then with “traditional” work. It looks like taking your own initiative to accept a job, show up and do your best so that the kids listen, but also enjoy their time with you.
I’m hard working. I don’t believe that anyone I’ve ever met, worked for or with would question that. Now, I’m just working hard at different things, including my family ❤
