Heal My Heart Series 18 of 22

Increase your job satisfaction by reducing anxiety and conflict at work.

Appreciation and job satisfaction seem to go hand in hand. Here are some statistics I thought might interest you. Several studies over the past few years on job satisfaction in America has shown: only 45% of workers say they are either satisfied or extremely satisfied with their jobs; 85% of employees are indifferent to the organization for which they work and give their time, but not their best effort, creating approximately $7 trillion in lost productivity; and 69% of them say they’d work harder if they were better appreciated.

Healing the workplace starts with one work environment at a time, including: babysitting, a paper route, helping out on the family farm, waiting tables to pay for college, internships, working in a large corporation, owning a business—whatever you deem to be work. Healing your relationships in the workplace can provide a more harmonious environment with less conflict, stress, and anxiety, as well as greater job satisfaction with increased productivity.

Workplace relationships include: your boss, your co-workers, your subordinates, your clients, vendors, etc.—everyone you consider to be part of your work environment.

When you consider there are many reasons such as, having an unhappy home life, feeling unappreciated, being overworked, undermined, pressured to produce, passed over for promotions, the target of workplace gossip, etc.—which are not necessarily intentional—you can grant your co-workers forgiveness with more compassion for their hurtful reactions and behaviors.

This is how I healed my relationship with my boss.

• I remember one time when I took a huge risk and stood up for myself not knowing if I would be fired on the spot.

• I was a highly-trained Medical Ultrasonographer working in the perinatology department at a local hospital. My patients were women with high-risk pregnancies. Dr. Pierce, the head of the department, was extremely competent and respected, although I thought his bedside manner could use some work.

• One afternoon shortly before lunch, I was doing an ultrasound on a new patient. Dr. Pierce entered the room, stood there observing the procedure, began criticizing my technique—in front of the patient—then turned and walked out.

• As far as I knew, he had never done anything like that before to me, or anyone else—especially in front of a patient! In a New York minute, not only did I feel infuriated, embarrassed, and humiliated, I was appalled that the patient might think I was incompetent—I almost lost it!

• After the patient left, I stormed down the hall and burst into Dr. Pierce’s office to confront him about what just happened. With every ounce of righteous indignation, I really let him have it.

• “Don’t you EVER reprimand me in front of a patient again. If I would have done that to you, you would have fired me on the spot. I consider you fired!”

• “Oh, Victoria, you’re way too sensitive,” he said in a condescending manner.

• “That’s insulting! I’m NOT too sensitive. The only difference between you and me is you have a penis and more education— THAT’S IT! For your information, I am a qualified, certified, and highly-respected ultrasound technologist. You have no right to humiliate me like that. It’s demeaning and I won’t tolerate it. Anytime you feel the need to critique my work, feel free to set up a personal, private, training opportunity. I am not mistake proof and I’m willing to listen and learn.”

• “I see your point. I am sorry I spoke harshly to you in front of a patient. It was inappropriate,” he admitted.

• “OK, then, I accept your apology. In the future, please be more considerate. You may find that you’ll get more of what you want or need from everyone who works with you through kind and thoughtful interactions.”

• “I get it, I’ll give it my best,” he said.

• After this incident, our relationship became mutually respectful—I felt more like a colleague than a subordinate. Interestingly, when my birthday came around the next month, he gave me a $100 gift certificate. I believe that it was because I spoke up for myself and he had more respect for me.

Does the Magical Healing Process really make a difference? Yes, and to live a magical life, there’s no hope in avoidance. Going into the unknown parts of yourself from your past may not be easy, however, it is necessary.

There are only two predominant things going on in your life. You either have something you don’t want (shame, blame, guilt, anger, envy, frustration, resentment, or regret). Or, you want something you don’t have.

Is transformational support available? For those who want to have an extraordinary, remarkable, exceptional, outstanding, incredible, phenomenal, unbelievable, amazing, astonishing, astounding, marvelous, fantastic, magnificent, wonderful, sensational, miraculous, fabulous, stupendous, out of this world, terrific, awesome, and wondrous life, feel free to choose a certified practitioner on the Repatterning Practitioners Association website who can support you in identifying and releasing negative beliefs, thoughts, feelings, behaviors, habits, and detrimental patterns that prevent you from living a magical life.
