Avoiding Burnout

Have you ever wondered why some people burnout, while others do not? 

A recent study of health care workers by Georgia Pomaki , a postdoctoral fellow in the Dept. of Psychology, UBC indicates that people who pursue positive goals tend to do well, while others whose goals entail just keeping their head above water tend to burn out or get sick.  This seems to support the notion that controlling one’s thoughts is the best way to succeed and be healthy.  Another example of the Law of Attraction (you get what you think about whether desired or not- Losier)

The question is, how does one remain positive when everything around you looks negative?  When does the employer need to take action to improve the work atmosphere?  When does the employee need to start over in a different situation?  Where is the breaking point?
