We tend to find ourselves contemplating on what really completes us, from work, health, hobbies and even gadgets. There seems to be hard time for us to reach the bottom of satisfaction. Though this is a good sign of yearning for more, looking for more and going after those challenges we knew right from the start or recently notice that we can do better or we got to reach for more, the peak and see for ourselves how sweet or sour it is at the top.
So you’re thinking of quitting your current job that pays more than you’ve expected. The job that gave you a five years and ten year loyalty awards where you’ve learned the strokes of the corporate world, the highs and lows of the work environment. You’ve established great co-worker/employee relations and you are acclimatized with the routine. In short you were bound to another 5 or 10 more years and seeing yourself retire with those bunch of whom you considered as your influence’s and motivational professionals, coach or amigo’s who’ve help you out carve a career that is not easy.
Plan not to fail or you’ll fail along the way for not planning . And most the human resource analyst are doing clash of clans in reference to how they can make a great employee to stay even with the lot of bait outside. Switching jobs or career is not really bad at all. Why ? Here is a great example.
When the Akron Ohio native jumped fence to the Miami Heat, LeBron James arguably the best ever to play the game have received a lot of curses. The fans gone mad with his decision pointing out the “loyalty issue” that has been the norm prior to his arrival in the league where marquee players retires with the same team it first took them. And for him it is his desire to win championship that will cement his stature in the league. The books shows that he did not only twice but thrice in two difference team organization, the Miami as back-to-back champion and with the Cavaliers last year.
In the recently concluded NBA Finals, the series Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant were once in your the same plight. And it took him ten solid years to make a decision that forever change his life, career and opportunities to the sports he is considered as one of the best. That little courage to follow what your heart desires will always have two sides along the way. First, the ghost of the past will haunt you and keeps you distracted with a lot of if’s and but’s. And there’s only one way or thing to let it stop to haunt and that is to reach the known success by doing the hard work, harder than your previous ones.
Imitating their decisions after a thorough thinking of what it’ll bring on the table are highly regarded as the second reason behind why do people change work and careers and that self redemption through humility is the most notable answers by those who’ve moved their talent elsewhere after a long stay. Pick up your things and follow that big decision you have at the back of your mind and do a Kevin Durant and LeBron James style of decision making and see your crowning glory unfold.
Greatness is not about loyalty, its about finding your place to give your best. – Paquito
