Are You Frustrated At Work?
Even most entrepreneurs who work for themselves don’t love every minute of working, so it’s normal to have the occasional frustration. Try to take a step back and look at how your co-workers perceive you. Would someone say you complain often? How do you respond to new procedures? Are you open to them, or look at them as yet another way someone else is micromanaging you? When those tasks you once liked doing become daily frustrations, that is a clear sign it’s time to find a new career.
You Feel Stuck
Take a look at what’s most important to you. Does it include things such as freedom, flexibility, or not wearing a uniform? Does your current career provide you with these things? If not, it’s time to search for a new career .
Do You Want To Make More Money?
As we become more experienced in our jobs, it’s normal to ask for and receive raises. Let’s say for example that you’ve been working as a server. Even at a fine dining restaurant where you’re basically making commission in the form of tips, you can serve only so many tables during a shift. Once you have enough customer service experience, the only way to make more money is by increasing the cost of the items you’re selling.
Selling a car will earn you much more commission than selling an appetizer, and many servers who make the move into the automotive industry do very well. This is also true for retail workers and any other type of career where customer service is the focus. In addition, by learning your inventory at the dealership, you can give yourself a raise by selling vehicles that pay a higher commission or when you receive a bonus for achieving your sales goal!
Your Heart’s Just Not In It
Do you ever coast through your work day? Are you feeling bored while you’re working? Are you tired of helping customers find a great pair of tennis shoes, handing out yet another bag of food or cashing out one more customer? When you don’t feel challenged or excited at work anymore, that’s a clear sign it’s time to find a new career.
Your Job Is Affecting Your Personal Life
