If you are feeling unsatisfied in your job, Alex recommends that you need to "unpack" what is really happening and causing your dissatisfaction and discontent.
It may not be what you initially think it is once you do this deeper dive "unpack".
Takes courage to start to address discontent or dissatisfaction.
This can be process that takes months – not usually a quick fix.
People are looking for the opportunity to be successful.

Keep a journal of our experiences and log the way you are feeling
Be honest with yourself
Go back and read over it
Could see it in a different perspective when you read it
Stay in touch with yourself
Turning the Mind Into an Ally – make sure you aren't telling yourself "stories" - this can be the source of your dissatisfaction.
Could use Awareness Meditation- it is a way to quiet the mind.  You are aware of things but you don't judge them or let them bother you.
