"You're lucky to have a job."This phrase has been a fixture in corporate America since employment began plummeting at the start of the recession. Today, jobholders are often reminded not to complain about their workplace "issues" when unemployment is at a 26-year high.Regardless of macro conditions, however, this is still YOUR career - not your boss's, the company's or anyone else's. When you remember that, you'll begin to realize your own intrinsic value. It helps you to become more assertive in your job, appreciate your self-worth, and helps you to better mitigate stress. While this is a tough time, our only limit is really ourselves.
