Love is in the air.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, the presence of love seems more apparent than ever and it appears everyone in a relationship is drunk in love. But is that really the case, or are some people just settling?
Staying in a job that’s not right for you is like staying in a relationship with someone you’re not in love with.
You want to get out of it, but you’re comfortable and afraid of the unknown. This mindset can be crippling and can lead to settling for a job that’s ‘good enough.’
My advice: never settle.
Don’t get stuck doing something you don’t love for years on end; be brave and move on to pursuing something that you know is right and can pour your whole soul into.
And don’t feel bad, your company will move on too. Now they will have the opportunity to find an employee who is actually passionate about working for them.
If you know in your heart that a job isn’t for you, don’t settle and stick with it because you’re too afraid to move on and see what else is out there. By doing so, you could be missing out on better opportunities and end up regretting your decision down the line.
If your heart’s not in it, break up with your job and find your true passion.
Tell me about a time when you refused to settle and pursed a better job (or relationship).
