I found the following text while cleaning my office earlier this week, not sure where the orginal source is from:
Be thankful for the troubles of your job.
They provide you with about half of your income.
If it were not for the things that go wrong, the difficult people you have to deal with, the problems and unpleasantness of your working day, someone could be found to handle your job for half of what you are being paid.
It takes intelligence, resourcefulness, patience, tact, and courage to meet the troubles of any job.
This is why you hold your present job.
It may be the reason why you aren't holding down an even bigger one.
If all of us would start to look for more troubles and learn to handle them cheerfully, and with good judgment, as opportunities rather than irritations, we would find ourselves getting ahead at a surprising rate.
For it is a fact that there are plenty of jobs waiting for men and women who aren't afraid of the troubles connected with them.

It came from the Reverend John Wesley Ford, one of the founders of Methodism
