You Hate Your Job But Are You Actually Doing Anything About It

I hear this all the time.

“I hate my job so much.”

“I hate my job and just want to quit.”

“Everything SUCKS about my job.”

And these complaints just go on and on…

But whenever I hear these complaints I say, well, are you doing anything about it?

Which just follows up with excuse after excuse after excuse.

Here’s 5 common excuses I hear from people who hate their job but don’t do anything about it, and what you should do instead.

Excuse #1 – “It’s what I’m good at”

Sure, you may be good at your job and you might even be the best in the company, but that is still NO excuse to live a miserable day to day life.

Just because everyone looks up to you, you are the top dog and everyone comes to you with all their problems, that’s no excuse to continue doing what you’re doing.

What to do about it

Even if you are good at it, the fact of the matter is, it’s time to start a new venture because the only time you should continue doing something you’re good at is if you enjoy it.

Other than that, find a new opportunity and expand your skills because life is too short to be in a job you hate!

Excuse #2 – “There’s no jobs around”


There are so many jobs in this world it’s not funny.

You just have to apply yourself and actually TRY.

Most people will look online for 10 minutes, come up with their own conclusion that there’s nothing out there, then not look again for another month.

What to do about it

You have to be consistently looking for a new job, preferably every single day.

The reason the good jobs get swooped up immediately is because those people are actively seeking them.

They see them come available and jump on them as soon as they show themselves.

They DO NOT wait around for a miracle to happen.

Excuse #3 – “I’m scared of change”

Change is inevitable.

Change happens to all of us.

How you react to change depends on how it will affect you.

But I totally get it, change is scary, but fear of change is what kills dreams and great things happening to us.

If I decided to let fear stop me from taking action, I would not be where I am today and that’s FACTS!

What to do about it

Embrace change, let it make you a better person.

Changing is what makes you grow, it opens up bigger and better doors for you and allows you to live life to the fullest!

You just need to take action, take the almighty jump even though you don’t know what’s going to happen.

On the other side you’ll come out an even stronger, happier and more wiser person, hands down!

Excuse #4 – “The company needs me”

The company needs a hard working, high value person just like you and so you don’t want to be that person that leaves in their time of need.

You know you’re probably the best in the business and after you decide to hand your notice in, you think they’re going to hate you for leaving them.

Repeat after me.

It is not your company and your well-being is suffering.

You can still offer them an alternative, which you’ll find below.

What to do about it

There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to leave because you’re the only one that knows your job, however, you can let your boss know that you want to leave your job soon (here’s a list of reasons), then offer to train someone for your position.

That way, you don’t feel guilty that you’re leaving when they need you and you can be happy that you’re giving something in return rather than just leaving in a time of need.

It’s a win-win.

Excuse #5 – “I get good money”

Listen here my friend!

No amount of money is worth it if you’re unhappy.

You could have the highest income in the world, but if you’re living a miserable life or don’t even have time to spend that money, what good is it, really?!?

I know so many people who hate their job but don’t quit because they like the money, but they are the most miserable people I have ever met.

And I also know people who have an average income and they are the happiest people in the world (like me) because they’ve got ultimate freedom and don’t have to answer to anyone.

What to do about it

Don’t chase the money, chase the freedom.

If your job earns you a lot of money, it’s no use to you if your happiness and freedom is suffering.

Chase the happiness and freedom factor, that’s the direction you should be going with your life, not being tied down to a job you hate but scared of leaving!

Chasing Ultimate Freedom

Like I said, freedom = happiness, countless people have proven to live a life most people can only dream of.

Your job is making you unhappy.
