I’m sure all people want to be happy and most of them do everything for getting this. But sometimes we don’t see obvious things that interrupt this process and don’t let us feel free in our wishes. I named them obvious because they are in our everyday life, but we don’t notice these things and look for reasons in other spheres of our life. For example, bad boyfriend, evil friends and, of course, bad job. I know that sometimes it’s really hard to find a job of your dream, but I don’t think that this is absolutely impossible. All you need is self-confidence. So, if you have already noticed that you don’t love your job as much as a few years ago, don’t try to forget about this. Probably, this is the sign and you need to do what you really want.
If you can’t find more reasons to change it, I can help you. Here are some signs you have to change this part of your daily routine and start looking for something better for you.
1. This company isn’t popular among the customers
One of the main reasons why you need to change your work is the situation when customers don’t like your company too. The main goal of all commercial organizations is success among their consumers. So, if they don’t want to work with any company, it’s not successful, and you all just wait when the collapse will happen. It is obvious, if it doesn’t happen in a few months, it will necessarily happen in a year. No customers – no money. No money – no wages. No wages – no encouragement and motivation to work. So, why do you work here?
2. You feel bad when you think about your job
Lately, I’ve gone through this situation, when my body tried to tell me, that I’ve needed to quit my job. I’ve got about 20 pounds, every Monday my stomach said me that he needs time-out in the bathroom, my mood was always miserable, I hate my life and everything that is connected with my job. Constant headaches and sickness were my best friends.
Do you understand what your body wants to tell you about? You know that you don’t like this job, but you try to hide it internal. Your body tries to put it away and show you the best resolution. Hear it, don’t ignore these signs. Take care of yourself and don’t let something like your work spoil your life!
3. You boss is a bad person
If you really don’t like your boss, this place isn’t good for you. Especially, when you understand, that all around you (for example, the top-management) feel the same, but they don’t want to change the situation. Why do you need to feel this stress and distaste at work? Some of them likes nasty and sexist jokes or even demonstrate something like a sexual harassment. You deserve the best job and encouragement from your chief!
4. You feel disrespected
Oh, you know, it’s a really bad sign! You do your work and may be sometimes you overwork, you respect everybody in your company, you try to develop and you are ready for something more that you have now, but all that you get back is contempt and disrespect. Usually it means that your boss isn’t a good person, but sometimes it’s all about the whole company.
We all know, that sometimes we need to feel some stress and to take this for what it is, because these situations make us stronger and teach us how to behave yourself in any difficult situations. But it doesn’t mean that you always should be under pressure and comply anyway. If you understand that something or somebody in this company makes you feel that you aren’t treated respectfully- change your job.
5. All your colleagues are unhappy
If some people are unhappy, it’s not so bad. Because we all are absolutely different and must understand that if something is ok for somebody, it doesn’t mean that it will be the same for everybody. But if you distinctively see that all your colleagues hate their job and get only negative from it – it is a real reason why you need to get out from this place.
But if administration of this company understands situation but doesn’t want to change anything – this is not the right company for you. The most important part of all business is its staff, and if they don’t care about them, the company will be crashed soon.
6. They don’t like all your ideas
Sometimes we all get really brilliant ideas, but if we want to bring it to life, we need to share this with somebody who can appreciate it. Of course, if these ideas relate on your job, the persons who you need to discuss this with are your colleagues.
You should understand that criticism isn’t as bad as you feel. It helps you to improve your skills and knowledge and gives some time for rethinking your ideas. But if you see that they are not agree with absolutely everything that you offer, and they don’t even want to discuss it a little bit more to correct mistakes and make it excellent, it’s a reason why you need to find some better work. They don’t deserve you, so you must find people who will appreciate you and your ideas. Be self-confidence, you deserve a consideration, some your thoughts, especially when they are really good and can help the company grow and become more successful.
7. Your colleagues’ competitive skills are too much annoyed
A lot of people really like some competitions, because it makes them stronger, faster and inspired. It’s ok, if it doesn’t disturb you in your work process. But if you see that it’s already too much annoyed and you can’t work while they are “fighting”, try to look for something else. You must remember that you should get only a pleasure from your work, and you don’t need to be ready for some co-workers wars.
I think my post will help you take the right decision! I really hope that you are happy at your work, but if you aren’t, you must change it. Do you have any experience of the same situations? How did you solve this problem? Please, share with us your thoughts in the comments below!
