I am not satisfied with my job

I am not satisfied with my job

I know how it feels when you are not satisfied with your job.
I spent a long time doing jobs that i hate until i realized that i was ruining my life that way.

The main reason most people who are not satisfied with their jobs never take an action is because of the fear that they develop as a result of two things 1) Not being sure about the next step and 2) The brainwashing that happens to them by others. (see How your friends influence you)

Just tell any friend "i am not satisfied with my job" and see how he will program you with his fears and convince you not to take any action.

If you are not satisfied with your job then read this article to know what to do.

Not being satisfied with your job

A friend once told me "Farouk, i am not satisfied with my job"
When i asked him why don't you find another one? he told "because its not safe to think about that!!"

When someone tells me that he is not satisfied with his job i usually tell him the following story:

There were two neighbors who lived right beside each other. The first one had a cat that keeps moaning in a strange way each day in the same time. When the second one asked the first why the cat moans that way in the same time of the day? the first answered: I have a rocking chair that i sit on each day at that time and whenever i swing back a small nail hurts the cat's tail.

The second asked: why don't the cat leave then if its not satisfied?
The first answered: Because the nail hurts, but not enough to let it move!!

This story resembles everyone who is not satisfied with his job and who never dares to take any action. He feels really bad each morning on his way to work, he hates his job so much yet it doesn't hurt him enough to motivate him to change things.

I am not satisfied with my job, what can i do?

If you are not satisfied with your job then you should start working on a backup plan that allows you to leave that job as fast as you can.

In the ultimate guide to becoming rich I said that leaving your job without having any alternatives might be a bad idea even if you are not satisfied with it.

However starting to work on a small project or preparing yourself to leave to another job while keeping the first is the perfect solution.

Some people can take the decision to quit their jobs and to start from scratch in a new project however if that project didn't take off quickly then your fears and the continues warnings from others will make you think you took the wrong decision.

The best thing you can ever do to yourself if you don't like your job or not satisfied with it is to start something else alongside it and when that thing takes off you should leave.

If you still think about doing nothing while you are not satisfied with your job then just remember the story of the cat i said earlier in this article. Do you want to be like it?

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
