Have you ever worked in an environment so toxic, you just knew you had to get out? But you couldn’t get out…because you needed the job. I’ve been there. Most people have. But there is something you can do about it.
Have you ever said, “I can’t afford to lose this job.” You stayed in a job you hate and it made you absolutely miserable. Maybe that describes you right now. Well, if that is you, I’m here to help.
The fact is that when you are stuck in a job you hate, it is almost impossible to fulfill your purpose and do what you’ve been called to do.
I still remember the horror, the helplessness, and the hatred I had in my heart. I’d just been fired from the job I hated, but felt that I needed to keep. We’d just moved into a new home, with a new mortgage and our six-month old was asleep upstairs.
My first reaction was panic. I was terrified.
My next emotion was helplessness. I literally had no idea what to do. Sure, I hated my job. In fact, just the night before, my wife Tara essentially told me I needed to find a new job…or else. The stress and chaos was too much for either of us.
Next, I felt hatred. Towards the owner of the company. Towards myself for not leaving sooner on my own terms. Towards…well, “the system” and “the man.” I was just angry.
Mark Sieverkropp loves his job. How about you?
It hasn’t always been that way. Less than two years ago, he absolutely hated his job.

But he found the work that he loves; work that he is passionate about. He actually wakes up and looks forward to work. He is making a difference each day. He is truly living. And he wants to teach you how to live that way, too.
Worn out – physically and emotionally
Mark woke up one day from a deep slumber. He looked over at the clock…
It hit him suddenly…his mind raced…
What?!? I’m three hours late for work!
Hurry, hurry, hurry. Go, go, go. Get up! My boss is going to kill me. Gotta get my clothes on. Where is my phone?!? Why is my wife yelling at me?
Wait, what was his wife yelling at him? He could barely make it out through the fog of war.
