It’s very common for people to feel trapped in the job they have. They feel as though they want to go out and try something different, but convince themselves they can’t change paths because they have bills to pay or just don’t have the time to try something new. This is just not true, the only thing keeping people trapped in their job is their own mental block.
There is always time and there is always a way to try something new.
When people tell me that they can’t leave the job they hate because they need the money, I usually say you don’t have to leave right now. Being responsible, paying your bills and taking care of your loved ones is one of the most important things in life, but there is always room to reach higher. You may not have the means to leave that job right now, but you can begin preparing for that jump. Do some research and see what opportunities are there for you, take the journey step by step. Some people get scared to really go out there and follow their passion because they think it’s too big of a leap, remember you don’t have to do it all at once.
Another issue I hear people bring up is that they simply don’t have the time to quit their job and find something they enjoy more. And I always question that. There is always time to learn something new or follow your passion. Everybody gets the same 24 hours as the President, so it’s just about how you use the time you’re given. If you really want to find something new, take some time out of your weekend or after your work day to learn something. Taking the time and better preparing yourself for a change is going to go a long way to helping you find a job you love.
The only thing keeping people in an unhappy position is their thinking. You are never too old or too busy to find something new and you should never sacrifice your mental well being for easy money. I encourage everyone to get out and find something they love and chase it.
