Why People Are Stuck in their Careers
The above are just a few reasons that I have heard other people tell me why they can no longer keep working for their current employer and ‘seek life elsewhere’.
Three and a half years ago I sought life elsewhere to leave an employer because I felt unappreciated from a compensation perspective.
Fast forward to present day and I have realized that life is too short to put in so much time at work to feel like what you’re receiving in compensation is less than what you’re providing in value to your employer.
But I talk to so many people who feel the same way yet do not ever move onto ‘bigger & better’ careers.
Why don’t people move onto a career that is more rewarding?
Well, here are some common reasons I have heard:
I Was Once Stuck Too
All of those themes are something I struggled with myself in my 20s.
Learning From Your Career Failures
Looking back I could not be more thankful for my career failures in my 20s as those failures turned into lessons, hard lessons at times, which have allowed me to carve out my own career niche.
This current career niche of mine isn’t forever as most things are not meant to be forever. However, it is a career I’m willing to go forward with as it is financially rewarding, which allows me to live life on my own terms and be happy.
Time to Carve Out Your Career Niche
If you feel it is time to have a better career, I would like to help you!
You too can carve out your niche even if...
Time is Never Going to Stop for You
Tomorrow will be here before you know it and so will next month and then next year. Before you realize it you will still be at the same job wasting away your knowledge and skills, potentially sacrificing an increase in compensation, but most importantly your happiness.
Life is too damn short to be wasting away in some cubicle where you’re underappreciated and undervalued when instead you could take the initiative to own your destiny to work a career that is financially rewarding and provides you happiness.
With so much time dedicated to working and sacrificing for an employer in your lifetime why not spend that time somewhere that leads to happiness.
Tell me, why are you still at your current job and haven't left for a better career?
