Imagine yourself a year from now still stuck in the same job you have
now. Does that thought make you cringe? Well, it’s a real possibility.
If you’re in a bad situation at work, your entire life is probably
stressful. When you wake up in the morning, you are exhausted. When
you arrive home, you are wiped out. Having the drive and the energy
to make a change is very difficult. That’s why so many people stay in
jobs that they hate and why you are in danger of doing the same thing.
Here’s the bad news, it’s not going to get any easier to make a change
as you wait. There’s a vicious cycle related to hating your job which
I wrote about in my second post ever on my site,
The cycle goes like this: You get a new job and are optimistic. The newness of it makes it okay and more money is good. The newness wears off. You hate your job and realize it’s a bad fit. You are close to a raise/promotion. You stick it out in hopes that things will be better then. You get promoted and are optimistic! The newness of it makes it okay and more money is good. The newness wears off… etc…
It gets worse. After a few of these cycles, the promotions come less frequently, and you’ve gotten adjusted to that higher level of income. You spend more and more time in the “You hate your job and realize it’s a bad fit” stage. Like an addiction, it becomes that much harder to quit the longer you’ve been at it.
Each time you find yourself feeling miserable about your job, take a
moment and jot down some options for how you can make change sooner
rather than later. Work From Home Jobs gives you real, practical tips for
earning a little cash online, for example. Start trying some of them
out. Reach out to your network about making a change. Explore what
it is you’d rather be doing. Think about what part time or freelance
work you could do in the short term. Read books on your dream and go
I told you so.
I can’t tell you exactly what you should do, but I can tell you when
you should begin making a change: right now.
