If you are unhappy at your current job, it’s time to think about how you can change your mindset so that you can be more satisfied and energized about what you’re doing every day. For example, try letting go of anger you may feel toward your boss or your colleagues, as that’s a waste of energy that doesn’t change the past. You alone have the ability to decide not to hang onto hurt feelings or resentment. Are you letting the need for blaming others fester to the point that you’re stuck in such a negative mindset you can’t get anything else done?
On the other hand, if you’re underpaid, being passed over for promotions, or have little room for advancement, it may be a sign that you’re unhappy because you’re unchallenged and bored. In that case, it might be time to dust off your resume and look for a position that offers you more exciting work. Also, don’t discount the need to leave a position if you’re being disrespected by colleagues or your boss, or you have physical and emotional problems because of your unhappiness. Those are sure signs that you need to make some changes. If you decide it’s time to leave your current job, get a game plan together for how you’ll look for and apply for new work. One word of advice—do not look for new jobs, or apply for new jobs, on the computer you use at your current place of employment!
