What is it that keeps you where you are at? I think this is a question that all of us come across at some point in our lives. Is it the Securability, your Current Pay, the Work Environment, or just to gain the Experience for future opportunities?
When you wake up in the morning, every morning, and don’t want to make the commute to work, maybe it is time to pack the bags and find another solution. As a society today, the majority of us go through high school, then through college, not knowing exactly the path we want to take. Once graduating, we take an opportunity that seems to make us feel happy. We get paid an average wage (that pays the bills), and at some point we realize “this is not what I want to do for the rest of my life.”
What makes it harder is when you become committed with a home purchase, marriage perhaps, or just the insane monthly bills. In hindsight, the pay does provide you with the income you need to live month to month. The human psyche is to feel trapped and have the feeling that you can’t get out. It is hard to take the large step and potentially obtain the opportunity that will relieve you from your current situation. This is due to the underlying uncertainties of taking that step. If you don’t take that step, you will always wonder what could have and would have happened if you did.
Our advice to you, don’t sell yourself short. It will not hurt you to continually see what is available to you. If an opportunity does not present itself, keep trying. If you don’t try, the likelihood of something falling in your lap is slim. Try and try again. What do you have to lose?
