Are You Unhappy in Your Career? 4 Signs it’s Time for a Change

This entry was posted in Careers and tagged , on by .

Do you feel increasingly unhappy with your job? You are not alone. A recent Gallup poll found that 85 percent of workers worldwide admit they hate their jobs. It’s surprising and eye-opening to learn that so many people are frustrated by their careers instead of being fulfilled by them. But, does this mean that you should continue on this path just because everyone else is? No. You have control over what you do each day, and you shouldn’t feel stuck in a career that brings you no joy or gratification. 

How do you know if it’s really time for a career change, or you just need to look at your career from a different perspective? Working with a career psychic in Los Angeles can provide you with valuable insight. In the meantime, here are four signs that it’s time for something new. 

1. You're always exhausted.

If you are suffering from chronic exhaustion, it’s time to look at your job. How many hours a week are spent working? Do you get enough time at home to refresh yourself? If all you do is work and sleep, you can't escape this tiresome cycle. The only way to break the cycle is by choosing another journey - one that leaves your happier and healthier. 

2. Your salary isn't worth the frustration.

People who make a good salary are often willing to put up with more. That voice in your head might say, “You won’t make this money anywhere else. You have to stay.” 

However, is your income really worth the suffering? If you could make less, still pay your bills and be happier, would this be worth a cut in pay? As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “For every minute you are angry, you lose 60 seconds of happiness.” 

3. You have to do things you aren't comfortable with.

Happiness in the job field comes from doing things that make you proud. If you’re selling products you don’t believe in, you may feel an incredible amount of dissatisfaction. Not only do you not enjoy your job, but also it goes against who you are as a person. It’s important to be proud of your role and the company you work for.

4. You feel your talents are being wasted.

Another sign that it’s time for a career change is feeling that your time and talents are being wasted. Sitting at a computer all day or working on a manufacturing line may drain you of your capacities. You are human - not robotic. Even if you have to go through a change or make less money, putting your skills to good use is an incredible feeling that you can’t put a price on.
