Tip & Advice Before Quitting Your Job. Tip #1: Embrace Your Situation

Have you ever find yourself asking yourself “Should I Quit My Job?”, should I -perhaps- change careers? Should I do something different to what I am already doing?

If you’re here reading this right now, you have obviously had. In fact, that was me on those mornings when I would woke up bright and early to go to work.  I loved my career, but there was something missing. It wasn’t fulfilling anymore.

Something within myself was saying –screaming sometimes- STOP IT! This is not what you want to be doing for the rest of your life! You weren’t born for this! You were born for so much more than being stuck at work 15+ hours a day. Of course this doesn’t include the commuting time which fluctuated between 1 -3 hours a day.

According to some statistics gathered by business insider if we add up all of the time the average person spends working, it would make 90’000 HOURS of WORK over their lifetime.

Yes, you read that correctly: Ninety thousand hours of non-stop work during your lifetime. That is 3’750 DAYS which makes 10.3 YEARS of Your life working.

10.3 Years!!

Imagine yourself working for over a decade of your life, non stop, with no breaks from dawn to dawn, just  like robots.

It sounds more like a sci-fi movie and it may be hard to imagine it happening in the real world but unfortunately, that is the reality for most of people except that instead of working for over a decade non-stop, they work with breaks in between, with a 7-10 day holiday a year, where they don’t even get to rest so, eventually,  they spend most of their lifetime working, ending up stressed, overloaded, unfulfilled.

Oh but this is only the beginning my dear because on top of that, the reality in numbers goes like this:

  • 80% of people is dissatisfied with their current job. (source: Business Insider- Deloitte shift index survey)

  • 25% of employees say work is their main source of stress and 40% say their job is “very or extremely stressful (CDC statistics)

  • 64% of Americans canceled vacations last year. One-third did it for work-related reasons even though most felt they were more in need of a vacation than the year before

  • You spend 90% of your lifetime, INDOORS, most of it at work . That’s 71 out of 79 years.

Do you get the picture? This stuff is real. So it is of no wonder why SOME people like You and I fall in to the realization that there definitely is SOMETHING MORE, something better and more meaningful to do with your life. Something fulfilling that gives you the joy to do what you love, with whom you love, wherever you choose to be while still generating an income.

It is of no wonder why some of Us, then, wake up and start asking ourselves: Should I quit my job? Should I make a career change? Should I start my own business?.

 

That’s why I decided to create this video training series: “Should I Quit My Job? Tips and Advice You Should Consider before quitting Your Job.

So within the following days/weeks I will be giving you – excuse the redundancy- the tips & advice you need to consider before quitting your job. Today we are starting with Tip#1 and that is, “Embrace Your Situation”. Of course there is more to just embracing your situation, but that is something you’ll learn in the video. So… here it is 🙂
