Are You Happy at work?
What do you mean leave my job? My job IS my dream!
Hear me out…
According to Gallup, their poll shows a staggering 85% of people around the world hate their job or their current manager. So, it is very rare that you actually love EVERYTHING about your job. However, if you do love your job. Keep working hard and be the best that you can be! Set goals, achieve them, then repeat.
To be fair, I will admit that the poll mentioned that the number was slightly higher here in the US. It mentioned that around 30% of workers enjoy their job. Even if I was being gracious with the numbers, that means 70% of Americans hate their job.
Reasons to Quit Your Job
Let’s be clear, I am not insinuating that all jobs are bad and no one should have one. Jobs can be a great platform for an amazing career or business of your own. However, there are several reasons people dislike their jobs such as:
- You are in the wrong position (bored)
- Poor Management
- Low Pay
- Terrible life to work ratio
- Company lack of morals or values
All in all, the list can go on and on. Please comment below if you would like for me to elaborate on the list above or create a list of issues and how to fix them within the workplace.
Don’t Look Back
Sadly, I admit, I fell into that 70%….
I worked in the automotive industry for over 8 years. For a great company and learned SO many new things. And yet, towards the end of my career, I felt extremely unfulfilled and unhappy. It had very little to do with the companies I worked for. It had EVERYTHING to do with me needing a change in my life. That change starts today.
My dream has always been to start a blog. For so long, I wanted to just try. I was kind of pushed into it after leaving the industry. Funny thing is, I have journal entries dating back to 2015, praying and talking to God about starting a blog. Unfortunately, I never had the courage to put myself out there. Today, I do.
I am starting the Entrepreneurial journey of my dreams. I’m very aware that it will be FAR from easy. I plan to document my journey with the good the bad and the ugly. Hopefully, you all will join me and give me a little encouragement along the way.
Tell me about yourself? What is your dream job? Do you fall in the 30% or the 70%?
