Dwelling on resentment in the workplace will lead to depression and an unfulfilling professional life, writes executive coach Mary Jo Asmus, who offers advice on how to let go.
- Relinquish control. Accept the things you cannot change. The sooner you stop focusing on the problems you wish didn’t exist, the sooner you can remember the parts of your job you love.
- Distance yourself from petty politics. Nasty emails, power-hungry co-workers and bosses who don’t understand where you’re coming from are all understandably frustrating. But when you’re consumed by negativity, you forget to lead by example by doing your job with grace and dignity.
- Consider your goals. If you can’t get over the problems you’re facing in your current position, how can you think taking a higher position will be any less stressful? Keep your eye on the prize and the big picture.
