(typing roughly) (grunting) (sigh) – To quit or not to quit? That’s the big question. Are you thinking of quitting your job and looking for a new career? Are you waiting too long to move on? Studies shows that 85% of the people actually hate their jobs. Means that if you randomly talk to anyone on the street, out of 10 people, nine of them will tell you they don’t like what they do. Now maybe, you’re a little it scared and you’re thinking about, “Well, should I do it? “Should I not do it. “Should I wait for a few months “and see how things are?” Well, here are seven warning signs that you should get a new job. Warning sign number one,
you go home and you spend a majority of your time complaining about your co-worker and your boss. So, you go home, you talk to your wife, your husband, your spouse, your boyfriend, girlfriend, your family, and they ask you, “Hey, how’s work today?” “Oh man, let me tell you. “Oh my goodness, “let me tell you about Suzie. “Let me tell you about John. “Let me tell you about my boss.” It’s always complaining. It’s something always wrong and you’re bringing a lot of negativity home and the conversation always ends on a negative note. Well, that’s sign number one that maybe you should look for a new career. Warning sign number two, you dread going to work everyday. In the morning, the alarm goes off, do you get excited? It’s like, “Yeah! Can’t wait to get out of bed “and go to work”, or when the alarm goes off you’re like, “Oh my god, here’s another day. “Here we go. “Gonna be stuck in traffic.” That’s a challenge. Do you always during the work days, you know, the hump day, right? Especially the hump day,
you’re like, “Oh man, finally halfway through the week “and it’s just two more days, then it’s the weekend!” You live for the weekends, and when you get to Sunday, the Monday morning you are like, “Oh my god, Monday here we go again.” You dread going to work everyday, that’s a sign. Warning sign number three, you are less productive at work or you are bored often and lack passion. If it during work hours, you are checking your Facebook every 20 minutes, you are playing around on Instagram or you’re playing video games on your apps, chances are this may not be the right career for you or come on, come on, let me give you a clue, just between you and me, if you’re working right now, this is during work hours, you’re watching a video on YouTube called “7 Warning Signs You Should Get a New Job”, chances are, guess what, you should get a new job. Warning sign number four, you know you’re going to be fired. Maybe the company that you are working for, they are downsizing or sometimes they call that re-engineering. You can see the team shrinking as each quarter goes by, from 500 people to 450 to 400 to 300, well that’s a clue or maybe it’s not the right company to start off with anyway.
Maybe it doesn’t fit your talents, that you are not at the right seat or it’s not the right position for you, not the right role for you or maybe you have no interest in the industry, but you just kinda got into it a few years ago. Now you’re kinda stuck. You gotta think a little bit ahead. If you know that the company’s not going anywhere, and you know you’re gonna be fired, it’s just only a matter of time, you want to think ahead because for your future jobs, it’s easier to explain to your new, potential employer, saying that, “Hey, you quit, “and you’re looking for alternative”, versus, “You got fired and you got laid off.” So, think ahead. Warning sign number five, you feel stuck and hopeless. See one of the basic human needs that we have, as a human being, is the need to grow. We want to be better. You’ve heard of the saying before.
If you’re not growing, you are dying. So, with your current job, if you don’t get excited about, and you don’t see a future, you don’t see where the next level is gonna be, and you feel you hit that glass ceiling and there’s nothing to look forward to, and you don’t feel that you’re growing, that the job is not challenging enough, or the people around you, they’re not challenging you, and you just feel kind of the same, and you don’t see a plan. Three months, six months, a year, two years from now, where are you gonna be, and the future, tomorrow, the next year, that is so blurry, then maybe it’s time to look for something else, or maybe you’re just drinking a little too much. A bit too much alcohol. You’re going to the bar a little bit more frequent than usual. Well, you might as well be a bartender. Get a new gig, right?
Warning sign number six, you are complacent. Now, you could say, “Oh, I’m comfortable”, but there’s a big difference between being comfortable and being complacent, right? That you are not growing and you are stuck. If you catch yourself saying stuff like that, “Hey, I don’t have time for new job search”, or “You know what, this job it will do for now”, or “Well, you know what, I’ll just see how things are. “I’ll stay around for few months”, or “You know what, I don’t have to be the VP of blank.” If you catch yourself saying that, guess what? Complacency, and very often complacency comes from fear that you’re afraid to grow. You’re afraid to step out of your comfort zone, and remember, your comfort zone is your income zone. Warning sign number seven, you’re not treated like a person. Maybe the company that you’re working for, they don’t value you. They don’t cherish and appreciate who you are as a human being, your talent, and you feel like just a number on a punch card everyday. Everyday you go to work, you just feel like, “I’m just a number.” They don’t know you. They don’t know your goals, your aspirations, and I’m not just talking about getting praise.
I’m talking about, are you getting positive, constructive criticisms from your higher ups, so you can get feedback. ‘Cause how are you gonna grow? How are you gonna be better? How are you gonna learn more? How are you gonna be a better version of yourself if you’re not getting coaching? If you’re not getting feedback? If your manager, your boss, is not coaching you, and is not helping you becoming better, than something is wrong. So, how many of these warning signs do you have? Comment below. Do you have one, two, five, or seven? All seven of them. If you have more than five of these warning signs, chances are, it’s time to move on. It’s time to look for something else. Now, maybe you’re thinking, “But Dan, I can’t just move on. “I can’t just quit my job. “You know I’ve got a family to take care of, you know?” I understand that. It is your duty, it is your obligation, it is your job to take care of your family, and how are you gonna do that if you’re working at a job that you hate?
If you’re working at a job that has no future? I believe the best way to quit your job is to develop what I call a high income skill. What is a high income skill? It’s a skill that pays the bills. With high income skill you can freelance. You can supercharge your career. You can take your business to the next level without getting into debt, and without a college degree. If you want to generate high income, if you want to set your own hours and set your own schedule, and you wanna do what you love by actually helping companies to generate more revenue, click the link below and check out my four part training series for free.
