Over the past two years, the world has witnessed a phenomenon known as "The Great Resignation." Millions of people have voluntarily left their jobs in search of greater purpose, flexibility, and lifestyle changes. This movement has been largely fueled by the Covid-19 pandemic, which prompted many individuals to reevaluate their priorities and reconsider their career paths.
In this blog post, we will explore the signs that indicate it may be time to move on from work that once gave you meaning and discuss how a Mental Fitness Coach can help you navigate this transition. We'll also delve into a personal experience that demonstrates the power of change and reinvention. Remember, change is a natural part of life and "The Great Resignation" might just be the catalyst needed for your next great reinvention.
1. Stagnant growth
If your job is no longer helping you grow professionally or personally, it might be time to consider reinventing your career or seeking new opportunities. Growth is an essential component of a fulfilling career, and stagnation can lead to dissatisfaction and a lack of motivation.
2. Mission accomplished
Sometimes, we reach a point in our careers where we've achieved everything we set out to do, and there are no new challenges to conquer. If you feel like you've reached the pinnacle of your career, it could be time to seek out new horizons and explore different opportunities.
When you find yourself constantly looking for ways to avoid your work or procrastinating on tasks, it might be time to take a break or move on to something else. Constant avoidance is a clear sign that your current job is no longer fulfilling or enjoyable.
4. Exhaustion, burnout, or dread
If you regularly approach work with feelings of negativity, such as exhaustion, burnout, or dread, it's worth considering a change. These emotions can be detrimental to your mental and physical health and may indicate that your current job is no longer a good fit.
5. Bad habits
If your job is causing you to act against your values or ethics, it's time to let go. Compromising your principles can have a significant impact on your mental health and overall well-being, making it essential to prioritize your values when considering a career change.
6. Unhealthy workplace environment
A toxic or unhealthy work environment can be harmful to your physical and emotional health. If you find yourself in a situation where your workplace is causing you stress, anxiety, or other negative emotions, it's time to move on.
Sometimes, a negative experience can be the catalyst for positive change. I can personally attest to this, as my own journey towards becoming a Mental Fitness Coach was born from a toxic work environment.
As my work environment deteriorated, I found myself struggling to maintain my motivation, well-being, and overall happiness. The toxic atmosphere was affecting not only my professional life but also my physical and mental health. In retrospect, this difficult period in my life turned out to be a blessing in disguise. It forced me to take a step back and re-evaluate my priorities, leading me to question who I truly was and what I wanted to achieve in my career.
This introspection led me to realize that my true passion lay in helping others navigate the challenges of personal and professional growth. Without the toxic environment pushing me to re-evaluate my life, I may have never discovered my calling as a Mental Fitness Coach.
Now, as a Mental Fitness Coach, I can use my personal experience to empathize with those who are struggling in their careers and provide the guidance and support needed to help them find their path to a more fulfilling and meaningful career. My journey serves as a testament to the power of change and reinvention, as well as the positive impact that can come from seemingly negative experiences.
If you're considering a career change, remember that sometimes it takes facing adversity to reveal our true passions and strengths. Embrace the opportunity to learn and grow from your experiences, and allow "The Great Resignation" to serve as the catalyst for your own personal and professional reinvention.
Before making the leap to a new career, it's worth exploring the concept of job crafting. Job crafting is the process of redesigning your job to better align with your interests, strengths, and goals. By adjusting your responsibilities, relationships, and perceptions of your job, you may be able to reignite your passion for your current role. If job crafting fails to reinvigorate your work, remember that change is a natural part of life, and it might be time to consider a new career path.

As a Mental Fitness Coach, I can provide valuable guidance and support during this transition, helping you identify your strengths, values, and goals.
