If you read 5 Reasons Why You Need to Find Another Job, you will understand why you need to start looking for other jobs now. Sometimes, when we are too comfortable with our present job and company, we somehow forget there is this big giant inside our own self waiting to be awakened.
Job is Just a Tool.
Just like money, job is just a tool that shapes up your career. Job gives you money, which in turns allows you to pay your bills and buy dough for your stomach. But job itself is merely a short term solution to a long term need. While your job may come with a great basic salary and irresistible perks and benefits, those rewards will mean nothing when you start hating your jobs.
When job satisfaction is no longer at its accorded place, suddenly, great compensation and benefits such as petrol allowance and maintenance allowance become inadequate. Often times, it means nothing. Does that sound familiar to you? It leads to many cases of people leaving jobs without any job offer in hand.
Do Not Be Afraid to Lose Your Job.
For many people, losing their job is the worst nightmare they can face. If leaving a comfortable job means you will struggle to achieve a better life, career and financial freedom, by all means, just do it. Just like the Nike motto, “Just Do It"
Sometimes we are more afraid at those negative thoughts instilled by negative people into our mind than our fear of our own capability. We are worried to be labeled ‘losers’, ‘dream chasers’ and so on.
“I have done this before 6 years ago and I failed miserably.”
“What, you are thinking of starting your own practice? Don’t be such a fool. You have a fantastic job with a fantastic company now. Don’t ruin it.”
“Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you when you fail later.”
“Didn’t I tell you so, before?”
These are some words that eventually convinced us not to start doing anything.
Aim for the Stars
When Robert Kiyosaki left his job as a salesperson for Xerox Corporation, he was one of the top salesmen in the company. When he first joined the company 5 years before that, he found himself always in the thin line of being fired from the job due to poor sales record.
He wanted to leave because he wanted to start business, and find early financial independence. When he was picking up his last cheque in his last day, half of his mind were saying this he was crazy to leave a great such a great job and when he was walking past the exit door, he overheard one of his colleagues saying to another, “He is not going to make it.”He was literally trembling with fear.
Eventually, the business allows him to reach financial independence before reaching the age of 50. By that time, most likely the colleague that said he was doomed to fail was still on the same job and earning perhaps only small increment from his previous day time job.
