Stuck In A Rut? STOP Tolerating an Unfulfilling Job Just Because it Pays Well
Hey, it’s Caroline, career coach and mentor.
Today, I want to talk to those of us who feel trapped in our job because it pays well.
And I know that everybody has bills to pay and sometimes you just don't have a choice.
I also understand that most of us can’t just quit and get another job.
However, here’s the thing:
Yes, you can tolerate a job that is unfulfilling BUT have a plan to change your situation.
Because the reality is most of us don't have a plan and we stay stuck and never reach our full potential.
There’s a difference between just tolerating a job that is unfulfilling for you AND having a plan.
Do you have a plan to change your situation?
Your situation is not going to magically change.
You need to drive that change. No else is going to do that for you.
People who are stuck usually ask these questions:
- If the grass is greener on the other side, should I even consider changing jobs?
- Is what I want just not existing? Is it unrealistic?
Here’s my answer:
If you don’t explore, you’ll never know.
You’ll just be stuck in your job.
In a couple of years, you’ll realise that your 6-figure salary is not enough and you want (and need) so much more.
And by then, it might be too late.
Then next question they have is:
- Where do I start exploring?
I say you start at the beginning. Start with YOU.
This is obvious but it’s a place that not a lot of people have thought about.
Just stop, think, and look around.
Is your career going into the direction that you want it to go?
What do you need to change to get back on track?
The first thing you should do is to identify the things you appreciate in a work environment.
Start with your values, what they mean to you and how they can be represented in the workplace.
They can serve as a compass to direct you to the organisation that is a perfect fit for you.
With my clients, I go a step further. I make questions that they can ask themselves and give them an extremely powerful matrix that can help them judge if an organisation clearly matches their values.
Don’t be an ostrich with your head on the sand and tolerate a bad working environment.
Don’t stay with an organisation just because you believe that it pays you a salary that you’re not going to find anywhere else.
I can tell you that you can and you deserve more.
