Money Is Not The Only Reason To Work
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Most people get a job so that they can earn money to pay their bills, buy groceries, buy some things they want, such as music or athletic equipment, or save for a vacation. Money is a great incentive, but since hours tend to be long and wages tend to be low, it is better to work for reasons other than money.

One reason to work is to gain self-confidence. You might be shy, for example. A job can help you to develop confidence, because you have to speak up so that people can hear you. You also need to look them in the eye. If you get a job, you will begin to find it easier to relate to people, because you talk to them all the time. When you have more confidence, it will also be easier to get what you need and want. After some time with the company, you will be able to ask for a raise, for example. That way, when you see your coworkers moving up in the company, you can be happy for them rather than jealous, because you will also be moving up. You will feel better about yourself.

A second reason to work is to build relationships. By getting to know supervisors and coworkers, you will have people who see your work habits on a day-to-day basis. They will notice, for example, that you come in cheerful each day and immediately get started on your work. These are traits of a good employee. Coworkers or supervisors can write letters of recommendation for you for future jobs.

Another reason why you might want to consider getting a job is to lose weight. If you spend the day at home, it is very easy to spend the entire day online or watching television. These are sedentary activities that tend to lend themselves to snacking. If your snacking gets out of control, you may gain weight. If you are holding a job, on the other hand, you are away from home for most of the day. You are busy working, so you do not have time to eat so much. If you are eating less, you may lose weight.

Finally, if you write articles or stories, your job may give you ideas for your writing. You might write an article about how some workplaces have a napping policy, for example. You could also write an article about the importance of managing your time while you are at work.

There are many reasons to get a job. Go online, and see what you can find. You may find a job that is perfect for you . When you begin working, you will see that there are indeed other reasons to work besides money.
