When working, there are times when you get doubts about what you do, enthusiasm arises and you might want to give up. In each and everyone’s career, there are ups and downs. The idea of changing your job may cross your mind. But before you make a decision, try the following and see if you might fall back in love with the job you are planning to quit.
Remember Why You Chose the Job
Challenges that we face each and every day may make us forget the bigger picture. Try to remind yourself why you decided to take the job in the first place. What did you want to achieve? Have you achieved it? Find out if the role you are playing in the current time is helping you achieve your goals. This might trigger back the passion you had for that job. Ensure that you always have your objectives in mind.
Make Yourself Busy
Challenge yourself, do something new each and every day. Ask for more roles. That way, you will tend to know more about your job. Involve yourself more. This will decide if you will keep it or quit. However, after some time you will get used to it, therefore, the idea of quitting will be out of your mind since you will have gained passion and loved it again.
Look for a Mentor/ Motivator
Sometimes you tend to get lost in what you do. You might forget what you are after and what you want to achieve. Look for someone who you can lean on, depend on and ask for advice. The person should be able to inspire you and guide you back to your job. He/she will guide you and give you the direction you need. More so, a mentor is a person who can increase your range of network and important professionals
Face Your Negativity
It is said your worst enemy is YOU. Criticising yourself can result in the worst negativity that cannot be reversed. Negative thoughts have the ability to corrupt your mind and the desire and passion to do your job. Identify these negative thoughts and get rid of them before they grow stronger. Replace them with the positive ones. Find something good about your job and embrace it. This will give you a reason to love your job again since you will be confident about it.
Advance Your Skills
Most organisations have departments which can help you can learn and develop more skills. This will enable you to know how to tackle problems that come your way in your job. More so, it will build up your CV and you will be an asset in the organisation. This will make you important. Everyone will love a job in which they have an important role to play in it.
Find a Company of Passionate People
The people you surround yourself with are the ones that will determine your attitude towards your job. People who are proud and love what they do will give you the morale to be proud of your job too. This is because you will view what you do in a positive way just like they do.
