Standing up to the boss might sound daunting, you might think it’s not your place to talk back but it’s not their place to be rude either.
When you are at work you are there to do a job, you are not there to be spoken to rudely or treated badly, many bosses will do both of those things if they think they can get away with it and they will get away with it if you let them.
You should start off by pulling them to one side and letting them know that you do not appreciate being spoken to like that. Confronting the bully boss will make him/her realize you are not a pushover and they will 99% of the time back off.
Unfortunately, most people feel that their job is their only option to earning money in life and that allows the jumped up control freak boss to push them around. I would say have a serious think about what you want out of life? Then ask yourself are you on the right path to achieving that life?
Personally, I would rather earn less money and be happy than earn loads and be miserable.
I’m not a fan of the employment industry I spent years working for other people. You can feel trapped, especially when you have a big mortgage or high rent to cover.
The good news is, there is another way, you just need to believe this and want this. So as I said earlier ask yourself are you on the path to achieving the life that you actually desire? If the answer is no, you need to ask yourself why? You only have one life, why spend that precious gift existing in an unfulfilling existence.
So you visualise a life that you want but you think that you don’t have enough time in your current life to make that dream life a reality.
It doesn’t take many hours a week to learn something new, it just takes consistency. If you decided that every Wednesday evening for two hours was going to be the time you spend learning this new skill or building your new part-time income, over a year that would add up to hundred and four hours. That’s a lot of time to learn something new and you will learn a hell of a lot in that time.
One of the main things this process does is it gives you your life back, straight away the life you are currently living no longer becomes the be all and end all, a light appears at the end of the tunnel, your current job now becomes a stepping stone, a temporary inconvenience, it’s no longer your future so it no longer matters.
At this point, I would highly recommend leaving your job mentally, it’s a beautiful feeling leaving your job mentally going into meetings pretending to listen and pretending care.
Now the urge to tell your boss to f##k off will actually wear off. When you mentally leave or no longer think of that job or them as your future and you will stop caring and you will see them for what they are, just a simple person trying to make their way through life the only way they know how.
You have just changed the direction of your life and in a few years, you will be inspiring others to do the same. I look forward to hearing how you get on.
