If you hate your job or you’re currently unsatisfied in your current career – change it!
I end my radio show each week saying, “If you don’t like what you are currently doing – change it!” And I mean it. If you hate your job and you’re just putting in the hours, why? Isn’t life too short to be miserable? It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? Do you know why? Because it is, that’s why! You have more within your control then you will ever realize – so take control!
Obviously, I am not telling you to disregard your responsibilities with your family or any obligations you may have in your life. That’s not going to help your situation. What I am saying is, go for it! Life is too short to be miserable!
So, if you are asking, how do I change it? Or if you are saying, I feel like I am stuck! You’re not stuck. In fact, you are far from being stuck in your situation. Do you know why? Because you have more within your control then you will ever realize, that’s why. The first thing you need to do is recognize that you want and need to change it. Once you realize that, you’re on your way. Now you have to figure out what it is you want to do, right? This can be the difficult part, especially if you don’t know what it is you want to do with your life and career you just know you don’t want to be doing what you’ve been doing. If fact, if you’re saying, “I hate my job!” you’re not alone, there are a lot of people that feel this way, so let’s figure out how you can change it! I want you to take control and find something that’s right for you.
The best way to get your juices flowing is to get out a sheet of paper and start writing down everything you want to do for a new career. When you run out of paper, get another sheet. And when you run out of that paper, get another sheet and so on, until you have some ideas. Once you finalize what it is you want to do you can start getting your game plan together. So, if it is going back to school, moving to another area of the country, or if you need to obtain a certain license, whatever it is you need to do, you will now have a game plan.
Now, once you start moving in the direction of what you want to do, things will start to happen. First of all, any family members or friends that thought you were crazy to get out of your current career field to pursue this new career will start to see that you are serious and will get “on-board” with you. Secondly, once you start moving in this new direction you will be able to see your goal within reach. Not just a thought, or an idea, but you are actually doing it! I hope this helps.
Good luck to you!
