Are you starting to feel an itch in your job or career that’s telling you it’s time to make a change? If so, now is the time to take action, BEFORE you reach full blown career burnout syndrome. Whether you are starting to experience burned out symptoms or not, this audio clip will give you some clarity around how to deal with the urge to move on from your current work situation.
More than ever before, people are experiencing career burnout syndrome. These days, it’s rare to stick with the same job, career, or company for your entire life. So, if you are feeling an itch for something different in your current career or position, you are not alone.
Are you ready for a career transition?
We all have different chapters in our lives. Our lifestyles shift due to living situations, marital status, children, and other factors.
Our values may also change as we grow and mature.
These are some of the main reasons why people start to desire new and different work situations.
Often, the initial “itch” arises when your desires start changing.
Maybe you aren’t getting the same satisfaction you did when you first started out in your current job or career.
Maybe there are skills you would like to implement that just aren’t relevant.
Maybe you have gained a new perspective or understanding that is pulling you in a different direction.
Regardless of the reasons, it is in your best interest to acknowledge that itch as soon as possible. Because it is not likely to go away, and in fact it will probably get bigger and louder until you have no choice but to address it.
Is the universe inviting you to fully stand in your truth?
When you start to think about a career transition, it’s usually because the universe is nudging you to be true to yourself.
So — if you are feeling an itch, and certainly if you feel like your hair is on fire, it may be time to ask yourself if you are standing in your truth.
The answer is probably no.
What are your unique skills, gifts, talents, and the things you care deeply about?
What do you feel you were “born to do” that will allow you to contribute to the world?
Chances are that these are not being utilized to a large degree.
The good news is that acting on this itch (or fire, if it has gotten to that point) doesn’t mean you have to run away and join the peace corps or move to another country.
In fact, the solution may be as simple as making a transition at your current company.
Or, you may feel compelled to start building your own business on the side.
Whatever the case may be, I would like to suggest that you start thinking about the changes you can make BEFORE you get to a place of absolute misery!
