Working in tourism is an incredible journey, filled with ups and downs, but finding the right fit in an organization can be a game-changer for your mental well-being.
Let’s explore why clicking with your team and company matters and how it boosts your mental fitness.
Feeling at Home:
Imagine being part of a tourism team where you truly belong. When you resonate with the organization’s values and culture, it’s pure bliss. This sense of belonging enhances job satisfaction and brings happiness to your work life.
Building a Supportive Squad:
Having a supportive work environment is like hitting the jackpot. When you fit in, you build genuine connections with colleagues and superiors. In an industry where you’re often away from family and friends, having someone who lifts you up, understands your struggles, and creates a safe space is crucial. It lowers stress and builds mental resilience.
Passion and Purpose Party:
Aligning with purpose and passion makes a huge impact. When you vibe with your tourism operation, work becomes meaningful. It’s like doing what you truly love. This alignment fuels your purpose and motivation, giving a major boost to your mental well-being.
Stress? No, Thanks:
Stress is a given in the Tourism Industry but imagine being stressed and burnt out all the time about where you find yourself. Not fun, right? When you don’t fit, stress and frustration become your uninvited guests. But finding that perfect fit makes work enjoyable, less overwhelming, and helps you maintain a healthy work-life balance.
Grow Like a Boss:
Ready to level up? Finding the right fit means endless opportunities for personal growth. When you align with your organization’s goals and values, they invest in your development, provide resources, and support your career growth. It’s about personal fulfilment, and your mental fitness will thrive.
So, what if you find yourself in a situation where you don’t fit?
Honestly, there’s nothing worse than trying to fit into a place where your heart tells you otherwise. Marius and I have both been there, accepting a job that should be amazing, only to end up unhappy and frustrated.
You convince yourself to stick it out, work harder, or wait for things to change. But often, they don’t. You end up with a broken heart and burnt out, all because society tells you not to run away from your problems.
But here’s the truth: just like you wouldn’t stay on the road when a truck is hurtling towards you, you shouldn’t stay in a job that doesn’t fit.
Put yourself first.
There are tools out there to guide and advise you. In this Fourth Industrial Revolution era, mind-blowing tech is changing the world, but you still need to understand what you really want.
For me, starting my own business brought anxiety and pressure, but the freedom it gave me was totally worth it. I realized I didn’t want to be stuck in an office. It’s about finding what truly makes you happy, fulfilled, and energized.
So, I challenge you to dig deeper, think about your own WHY. Reflect on what you’re doing right now and ask if it brings you joy, fulfilment, and energy.
If it does, that’s awesome!
But if it doesn’t, it’s time to take steps toward a better tomorrow
Your mental well-being matters, and finding your perfect fit in the tourism industry can lead to a brighter, happier future.
