I feel great after the gym even though its hard work, I feel accomplished, and surely there are nice-feeling chemicals rushing through my body afterwards.

In all my jobs, I have never felt a sense of accomplishment or reward after working hard. I have always just been waiting for the day to be over so I can leave.

I enjoy working on music. I have recorded an album, that was "work" that I felt accomplished and rewarded for doing. But never some gig I am doing for actual money and not just for the love of it.

Do most of you actually feel accomplished and happy with yourselves after a hard day at the office, or after completing some big project at you job?

If you don't mind me asking what kind of job are you working? If your working an office job maybe getting a physical job may be good for you, get paid for working out and get those endorphins flowing.

I feel the same as you, I have a hard time being motivated working for someone else. I know that nobody will pay me what I'm worth nor do many employees show any loyalty or appreciation for the hard work you do so it's hard to bust your butt for someone you know will lay you off at the drop of a hat if it helps their bottom line just a little.

This is why I started my own company and though I still work my day job the goal is to quit and I'm well on my way to fulfilling that goal.

The only other piece of advice I can give you is if you do want to work office jobs maybe get a job where you help people or where what you do actually matters.

Just for example, if I was a teacher I'm educating kids and shaping kids. If I'm a paramedic or fireman I'm saving people's lives. At my current job nothing I do really matters in the grand scheme of thigns, same with past jobs of mine. At my past job if I took 4 hours of work home with me and busted my but maybe another 1,000 people see a KungFu panda ad...btw...i used to work in online advertising/media buying. But you get the point for me if I'm not being rewarded or paid what i'm worth by my employer I'd at least like to make a difference and working a job where what you do doesn't really affect anything in the grand scheme of things is hard for me to do as well.

I'd recommend either getting into a more physical job, starting your own biz or do some job that makes a difference in the world if that matters to you.
