How Can I Quit my Job?

Quitting The Job…

If you started asking yourself this question “How can I quit my job?”, it probably means you are not enjoying your job anymore, right?

Maybe your job is boring and you don’t feel passionate about it anymore or maybe you are depressed and not enjoying your days anymore because each day is like the one before…

Don’t worry, you are not alone.

Actually, a lot of people are asking themselves this same question. They want more time, financial and geographical FREEDOM in their lives. They want to find their passions and their purpose in life.

Yet they feel stuck and they don’t have a solution yet, just like you.

Quitting The Job Is Not an Easy Task

It’s NOT an easy task to quit your job for sure. A job gives you a paycheck at the end of each month.

Quitting your job and embarking on an entrepreneurial journey might seem very scary to most employees.

How can they quit their comfort zone and go for uncertainty and challenges?

In fact, we always have choices and everything in life has advantages and inconveniences.

A job is secure somehow but its daily routine is boring and the salary isn’t enough.

Lots of the time our work isn’t appreciated.

A job makes us dependent on the employer and the salary we earn. We aren’t free in this case.

On the other hand, being an entrepreneur is a way to live freely, as we want to live, and fulfill our purpose in life…

Find an Alternative

Before you quit your job, you need to find an alternative. Obviously, right?

So, first of all, you need to zoom out of your situation a little bit and take a moment to think.

Why are you unhappy with your job?

Is it your career? Are you in the wrong one?

Is it the company you are in, their rules and their culture…

Is it the employee’s life that you don’t like anymore? Working from 9 to 5, no freedom and no flexibility…

It’s really important to think about the cause of your unhappiness.

Once you get this done, you need to start searching for alternatives. Let’s say the problem for you was the employee’s life and you want to become an entrepreneur.

  1. Do some research. See what is available, what do you like, and how you can become an entrepreneur.
  2. Find good training, education, and mentorship from people who already achieved what you want to achieve.
  3. Evaluate your decision and verify if it feels right to you. This is very important. 

Be Patient

Don’t listen to people telling you about easy success and overnight miracles. Stay away from these ideas. 

How can you know that you are on the right path? Well, you just know it, you feel it with every cell of your being.

If you took the time and thought about your life, your problem, and why you are unhappy… if you have done complete research about what you love to do and how you can start doing it, then you need to stick with your plan until you succeed.

You might not arrive at your goal directly, you might spend years of hard-work until you get to your destination but isn’t worth it?

Is it worth it to finally build your life around your passion and live every day with passion, freedom and fulfillment?

Plan Your Exit

If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.

So having a clear plan for your exit will save your life.

Check if what you are going to do as an entrepreneur is something you love, you can live from, you can improve at, and it will impact the world positively…

Then, check your finances. Do you have some saving for the tough times?

What are you planning to do if you don’t get results as planned? Can you do some part time job like uber delivery, homeschooling the neighboors kids, working in a restaurant or a bar…

What are you ready to do to achieve your goals, dreams and aspirations?

My Final Thoughts

Quitting your job and finding an alternative isn’t always an easy task. I struggled a lot with my job. It kept me away from my family, for more than 10 years.

I felt stuck and unfulfilled with the job routine.

I felt dependent on an employer.

I felt that my life was totally controlled and I am not free…

I knew there should be a way out but I didn’t know exactly what it is. I kept my hope alive and searched a lot over the internet.

I am happy to say that after a while, I started living the life I desired, most importantly I started my journey as an entrepreneur, online business owner, and life coach.

I want to help you improve your life.
