There are hundreds and thousands of people facing the big question... Is this my dream career? Do I need a career change? Some want to quit, others to start their own businesses, others yet want to be promoted, get a raise, move to another country, and more. Some questions represent a dilemma that hundreds of thousands of people are facing.
Here are 5 critical ways to determine reliably and effectively if you should change careers, After you have read this article, you will know- “Should I stay or should I go?”
The 5 ways to tell if you should change careers are:
1. You are chronically worn out, exhausted and depleted.
Most of us spend more waking hours working than doing anything else. If you don’t like your work, it won’t like you back, and overly-stressful, misaligned work can very easily make your body break down. Your body tells you what your lips cannot. It may be your specific job or toxic work environment that are breaking you down, but often it’s your entire career that needs a shift.
2. Your skills, responsibilities, and tasks are not you at all.
This can be a shocker for some folks that you might have become very good at work that you hate. For example, someone could be really good at presenting to a board room of senior leaders the facts, data and new marketing strategies, but inside it could be a horrible struggle. You couldn’t care less about them.
3. You’ve come to the point where your salary no longer makes up for the boredom and emptiness you feel.
Most people who dislike like their work but are reluctant to change would say it’s their fear about walking away from the money that keeps them stuck. We all know people who are used to making 30lacs a year and more, and they don’t want to part with it. But at some point, many are saying, “Hang on here – I have this money, but I hate how I spend my life making it.” They begin to rethink their priorities and their abilities, and then they open their eyes to new ways they can make the money they need without risking the farm or giving up their lives for it. (Millions are doing this. The research shows that by the end of this decade, more than 50% of the private workforce will be independent.)
4. Despite all the “right” choices you made in your career, the outcome feels very wrong.
So many professionals have made all the “right” choices, done everything that was expected of them, so when they wake up bored to death with their work, they’re shocked and confused. The thing to realize here is that the “right” choices usually had to do with pleasing others, stroking your ego, or taking work or a promotion that fell in your lap, rather than asking yourself the tough questions like “Is this where I belong?”
5. You have the irrepressible feeling that your talents and abilities could/should be used in a totally different (more creative and impactful) way.
If you think, “There’s got to be more in life,” then there IS more to life than what you’re currently doing – no question.
There’s another way to live and work, even though you can’t see it yet.
