You may be sticking with a dead-end job simply because you think there’s no other way to make the income you need to survive.
It’s time to stop that negative self-talk and look around to find opportunities, leave the job and get on with your life.
When you’re doing something you love and enjoy, you’ll be filled with excitement for each day.
Fear of the unknown is what keeps many from leaving dead end jobs.
That can lead to burnout and depression – and it can severely take a toll on your health, relationships and other aspects of your life.
When you make excuse after excuse to stay with a job where you’re going nowhere, you’re letting boredom and apathy set in.
It’s time to gear up to quit that job and grab life by the horns.
Gearing up to quit a dead end job can be an exhilarating time in your life.
Sure, it can be scary too, but if you approach the end result by gathering enough information to make an educated decision, you’ll be way ahead of the game and begin to enjoy and look forward to the new life you’re contemplating.
A good way to prepare for your job exit is to first decide what you want to do – what excites you and makes you get out of bed with a bounce in your step.
Research, talk to people and even volunteer in a profession if you can.
That will shine a bright light on your choice of a new career and solidify your decision.
Some new career paths can be experienced on a small scale until you know for sure it’s what you want.
For example, if you want to start an online business, begin with a blog. Research and set it up in your spare time to see how it goes.
Another way to gear up for the inevitable leap off the cliff is to put aside a nest egg that can protect you during lean times.
There are bound to be those moments when you doubt that you’ve made the right decision and a bit of savings can help to calm your fears.
Breaking out of a boring or unhealthy situation such as a dead end job can lead to growth as an individual.
Change, although scary and difficult at times, only happens if you take the first steps.
Go about quitting your job systematically rather than walking out the door in a bubble thinking you’re going to set the world on fire overnight.
It just doesn’t work that way.
But, if your instincts, research and judgment tells you it’s time to quit and move on to something else – it probably is.
Begin today to plan your future. In no time, you’ll be ready to quit that dead end job and get on with your life.
