I am really unhappy with my work. That I have to do?

I get a lot of questions and I understand how you feel because I have been there before. There is nothing as frustrating as doing something you don't enjoy in the name of money.

Everyone is interested in a brilliant career and a well-paying job. But you certainly won't enjoy being miserable all the time.

Think of the famous successful entrepreneurs and how they got started. One thing is normal between them; they did what they like to do. It may not pay well at first, but in the long run it will.

I get a lot of questions and I understand how you feel because I have been there before. There is nothing as frustrating as doing something you don't enjoy in the name of money.

Everyone is interested in a brilliant career and a well-paying job. But you certainly won't enjoy being miserable all the time.

Think of the famous successful entrepreneurs and how they got started. One thing is normal between them; they did what they like to do. It may not pay well at first, but in the long run it will.

Doing what you enjoy motivates and increases efficiency. It's really energizing when you take another job, with all the enthusiasm and zeal, because no matter how stressful it may seem, you will enjoy the hard work.

However, in the long term it must be evaluated. Ask yourself "Am I happy with my work?" If not, at that point you have to reconsider.

Research reveals that people who do what they love and enjoy are happier and also live long, healthy lives. Before accepting a job or career, you should ask yourself: "If all the jobs / organizations on earth pay the same amount of salary, which one will I go to?"

Yes, you want to earn money, do you really want to live your life with stress and pain for the rest of your days? Life is short and sweet, you deserve better.

These are signs that you are in the wrong job / career:

1. You are too cash conscious (too money conscious)

Sure, everyone needs cash, yet when you work for cash you are enslaving yourself. There are people who still do what they love to do and earn a lot of cash. Actually, when you deal with a problem, you earn cash. Instead of having an excessive knowledge of cash, think of a problem that you can solve, that can generate cash and fix it.

2. You have no energy doing what you are doing (no passion)

In reality, this means that you have no faith in what you do. If you lack passion for what you do, it means you lack motivation. On the off chance that you don't love what you do, you will feel miserable and discouraged. You need enthusiasm in your work because it makes everything fascinating and it also affects the way you relate to others.

3. You don't learn anything new

For me, the worst job among the most exhausting jobs in the world is working where there is no way to learn anything new. When you don't learn, you don't advance.

We are faced with a daily reality in which information matters and where there is a lot of rivalry. You cannot afford to miss out on outdated information. People pay to get the latest information. In case there is no possibility to learn, you should reconsider.

4. You don't fit

I have worn this shoe multiple times throughout my life. There is a gigantic contrast when you don't fit in and when you think you don't fit. In some cases it's just your mind, because most introverts go through these tunnels. It means you have to socialize more. The people I'm talking about are people who try their best but seem so undetectable and unnoticed. Feel that none of your assumptions really matter or make sense to anyone; you do "A", all they see is "Z". If that's you, then clearly that's not your shoe. The shoes have sizes, get your size and be happy with yourself.

5. The moment your talents are idle and wasted

Your talent makes way for you. Where you cannot go naturally, your talents will take you there. Some people are not known by name but by talent. Talents are not given to hide. It is given to be communicated. You must realize that any work you do that does not encourage the gifts God has given you limits you.

First, specific individual circumstances are important. So, I don't believe in simplists, “Do you hate your job? Then just quit tomorrow / ASAP. ”This may or may not be feasible in your particular circumstances (or anyone else's). That said, you should leave as soon as possible in your particular circumstances. 'circumstances' as an excuse not to do anything about it, you should i) try to communicate with management and see if something in your work can be fixed while ii) look hard elsewhere / look for work "under the radar". Once your management knows that you are not satisfied,

'circumstances' as an excuse not to do anything about it, you should i) try to communicate with management and see if something in your work can be fixed while ii) look hard elsewhere / look for work "under the radar". Once your management knows that you are dissatisfied, they will attempt to address you constructively and with a desire to accommodate your top concerns (in most large companies, from my own experience and that of my friends with much more experience than I have. , this is not very likely - explaining why this is so would take me too long to develop in detail), or I want to 'remove' it (but can't fire it / fire it right away, usually not until they find a replacement i.e someone else to do the work you're doing), or they just won't do anything as they have concerns far greater than your level of (dis) satisfaction. Scenarios 2 and 3 are more likely than Scenarios 1, and in each of Scenarios 2 to 3, instead of "calmly looking around", you should focus most of your energies on getting a new job ... In the case of Scenario 1, you may want to stay, but then,

That's good, the worst place to be is content and comfortable. The universe is giving you a clue, your discomfort means it's time for you to find out what you really want to do. Start your exit strategy and find another job or follow your dreams. I was there several times, the first time I felt so comfortable with the check that I did nothing about my discomfort, so I ended up getting fired and then forced to think about the next move during the economic downturn. in 08.

Chances are, if you change jobs without first finding out why you hate your current one, you may find yourself in the same situation again.

Having said that, the best job you will find is the one that you achieve. There is a reason why there are billions of employees in the world who curse their miserable fate. Working for someone else (with very few privileged exceptions) is supposed to suck; It is your employer (that is, the owner / shareholder and sometimes top management) that is destined to be happy.

Having said that, the best job you will find is the one that you achieve. There is a reason why there are billions of employees in the world who curse their miserable fate. Working for someone else (with very few privileged exceptions) is supposed to suck; It is your employer (that is, the owner / shareholder and sometimes top management) that is destined to be happy.

Therefore, the correct sequence is:

  1. make sure you have a career (something you really like and are really good at), and once you have it,
  2. create a job for yourself and then
  3. enjoy for the rest of your life.

Get out as soon as possible. You spend most of your life working. If you hate your job, you are guilty of masochism.

Even if you have a family to support, you are not helping them by living a life of misery. In fact, you may also be torturing your family inadvertently by witnessing their misery.

Write down the reasons for your unhappiness at work.

Think of ways to change those reasons / circumstances.

If possible, try to change those circumstances.

In the meantime, think about the jobs that would keep you happy, and work to find such a job.

Persevere in the present condition until a better front is opened.

Good luck. God bless you.

You try to focus on training courses, either online or at a center that can lead you to your dream job or career that you like the most ... since you have no backing, don't quit your current job ... once you complete your training course and be confident that you will quit your job… .but don't stay long in a job that doesn't make you happy… ..live your life and do whatever you want… I wish you all the best… . .

Fix your attitude first. So do your employer a favor and get a different job.

Let's translate what your question seems to be asking.

I'm 30. Which apparently means "not young anymore." Beyond the point of frivolous, high energy, irresponsibility of adolescence and freedom of the twenties. Young only compared to people 50 and over - a gloomy bunch, you see yourself heading towards, and you don't like the perspective.

Single. It apparently means lonely. Not loved. Isolated. Not wanted. Without importance. Perhaps, Rejected. It is not part of a family.

Unhappy at my job. It apparently means Going Nowhere. Little paid. Bored. Unanswered. Perhaps, lagging behind others. Disregarded. Fulfilling n

Let's translate what your question seems to be asking.

I'm 30. Which apparently means "not young anymore." Beyond the point of frivolous, high energy, irresponsibility of adolescence and freedom of the twenties. Young only compared to people 50 and over - a gloomy bunch, you see yourself heading towards, and you don't like the perspective.

Single. It apparently means lonely. Not loved. Isolated. Not wanted. Without importance. Perhaps, Rejected. It is not part of a family.

Unhappy at my job. It apparently means Going Nowhere. Little paid. Bored. Unanswered. Perhaps, lagging behind others. Disregarded. Achieve nothing. Not appreciated. Without direction.

Do these descriptors more or less summarize your feelings? Hence your question?

A lot of people cross the boundary into their 30s, then stop to take a look and conclude that they haven't accomplished much. That his life is out of control and aimless. Not only are they heading for oblivion, but they have already reached it.

They don't like what they see of their lives: "over 30, single, unhappy." They ask "What should I do now?"

One answer, the easiest, is "run away."

His formulation of that is "drop everything and move."

Where? And because?

What do you think it would achieve? It won't make you any younger. You will not get married or feel less alone. Worse, in fact, because you would be in a strange environment, among strangers.

It will not improve your employment situation or your career outlook. Worse, in fact, because you won't have any job or income. And leaving your job, without significant accomplishments, won't make it easier to get a new and better job. You are also not likely to get good references from your current bosses.

But if you can't run, you have to stay where you are.

Not so good. In fact, many thirty-somethings feel trapped. Hopeless. Failed. Aimless. It needs a change.

Thus, more or less as an act of desperation, they find the next available woman and marry. Probably giving her immediate relief, because she had been worried about being in her 30s, childless, with her biological clock ticking.

And, again more or less desperate, to find another job. It may not be too difficult to get a new post. In fact, it will be a lot easier to land the next new job after that, which will be incredibly difficult to get.

And what do you think is likely to happen if you follow such a program?

Let me guess. Generally, shortly after the second child is born, one discovers that it has been a boring and unsatisfying marriage. Mortgage payments. High property taxes. Big payouts on the BMW. Rising costs for kids, eventually a monumental problem with college spending. No career advancement. Still underpaid and unappreciated.

Still trapped. Much worse than before.

Thinking again of running away. Unfortunately, an even worse prospect than before.

Back to reality. It might not be a good idea just to get married and look for a new job. He must have made a mistake, somewhere a long time ago.

Maybe so, but the past is set in stone. I can't change that.

So take a look and ask some strangers "What do you think?"

Well, since you asked, I think you need to make some changes to yourself. The problems you feel are not defects in your job or your employer. Not with a world that is indifferent to you. Not with the "right woman" who has eluded you.

Instead, it's most likely you. Your life feels out of control, because you have not taken control of your life and made it fulfilling. I suppose that, like so many people, you have mainly let things happen to you and have "let yourself go".

The first thing you should probably do is take your job a lot more seriously. It's not just a place where you show up five days a week, do what they're told, and cash a paycheck every now and then. If you think other people are getting ahead of you, it's probably because they are. They are taking the job much more seriously than you are, for your benefit.

This answer may not be an introduction to how to be more effective in your work, but that is a topic that deserves much more attention and effort on your part.

The same goes for your social life, particularly marriage and family. You won't get there, by no means effective in the long run, with parties and weekends at the beach and casual rolls in the hay and hanging out with the trophy girls with the biggest tits. What are you doing to prepare yourself to be a truly good husband, homeowner, and family man?

Again, this answer cannot be an introduction to how one matures and prepares to become a responsible husband and father. However, there is a great deal of published information about it and many "older" people willing to give advice and advice. (Don't waste your time with the cynics).

Passing 30 does not mean that you have passed the point of learning, change, development and maturity. At first glance, it seems to me that you have a considerable need for all of these. And that kind of growth will solve all those other feelings you seem to have, in a much better way than trying to run away from your problems.

You have two options ...

a. Bury your feelings and move on. Try to fool yourself into thinking that this is just a temporary feeling. Let the years pass and allow yourself to sink into depression and despair, hating others and taking your frustration out on the people you really care about. Then at one point you let it all come out, whether it's someone you love or your boss / coworker at a very inappropriate time and then you wonder why you didn't choose the path you didn't take.

B. Join! Take a break for a day and go to your quiet place; you may enlist the help of a friend who knows you very well. Don't ask the

B. Join! Take a break for a day and go to your quiet place; you may enlist the help of a friend who knows you very well. Don't ask for their opinion, they are just to support you and make sure you don't waste your time.
Now, take a quick introspection about your current office life - what feels bad, why, and what you've done about it. Don't think about people, they don't matter here. If you find that you haven't done anything about it, plan what you might need to do to get it the way you want it to; This could mean talking to your boss about a raise / different project / on-site / sabbatical / role change. Be clear and concise - dig into each question (your friend could help here) until you get to the root cause of what's wrong. Once you do this, don't procastrine and take immediate action. You will be amazed at what you can achieve!

If, on the other hand, you find that, despite taking the necessary measures, you are still not satisfied, then it is time to change your job or role. If your boss or your company won't let you change roles, it's time to say goodbye. Trust me, there are a lot of jobs, you just need to know where to look. Again, don't delay, take action and follow up! Most people miss the last part and will get back to where they started quickly.

Remember, it is your choice. I'm pretty sure you won't choose option A. I hit the same wall a while ago: I was unhappy and dissatisfied at my job; He quit without having any job offer and was unemployed for 4 months. I never gave up and soon got another job. Now I am abroad with no regrets.

Speaking from one, I've been there and made that state of mind ... actually almost 25 years ago, (God I'm not getting any younger ... anyway) I left the military and had my whole life planned, a Receptionist changed my life, she put me a lot in your situation, I left the army, I had a job in an international company, I had no idea what exactly I would be doing, but she paid me well ... (at least that was the sales pitch ). I wanted to go to school, get a degree, and become a doctor before joining the military.

While I was in the military I realized that I was not going to be a doctor, my passion for

(at least that was the sales pitch ). I wanted to go to school, get a degree, and become a doctor before joining the military.

While in the military I realized that I was not going to be a doctor, my passion for saving people's lives left me, while in the Gulf War I realized that the responsibilities of a surgeon were far beyond my comfort zone to a point where I couldn't. dealing with the idea of ​​never knowing if I could have done something different ...

So I flew back to Europe, not speaking any foreign languages ​​fluently, not having a job in line, not having a soul to turn to, basically I jumped into the cold water in the deepest part of the pool and couldn't swim. . However, he knew how to float on water and that is what gets us to where you are now in life.

You find yourself stepping on the water but you don't know which side of the pool you want to swim to, the one that seems to be far away and the water could be deeper, but you don't know for sure because you can't judge the Since the depth is already in the water, the other one is closer and probably safer, but there are a lot of people on the trail that could prevent it from reaching the safety of the edge ...

Your work is the edge of the pool with all the people in your path, the other side the emptiness is your lack of knowledge of what you can be passionate about, this although it seems scary, possibly deep and far is still the safest route, because the only challenge you have in front of you is you, don't let others get in your way or block your way to find what you enjoy doing.

You may end up going underwater every now and then, just be sure to go up, take a deep breath and move on, your passion or purpose is at the bottom of the pool, you have to dive to grab it, but you may find a stone or two in it. the bottom before you find the brass ring you are looking for.
