You have landed the job you applied for, YES! Full of good spirit you start your new job.
After a few months (or weeks) you start to notice that something is off: the job is not what you had expected. You really thought that this time you had landed the right job for you.
You know, that job that makes you feel good and in which you can use all your potential. That job in which you can thrive, use all your skills and feel amazing.
But you’ve come to the realization that, once again, you and your new job are not a good match. So, before you know it you spend your evenings, looking for new job opportunities.
Why does this keep happening?
It’s not the job. It’s you.
If you have a history of switching jobs because every time it doesn’t seem to be a good match, I have a secret that I want to share with you. I mean this in the nicest way possible, but it’s not the job. It’s you.
Of course, it can be that you keep running into difficult bosses that make you leave your job screaming every time. But most of the time, that is not the only reason why people seem to keep switching jobs.
You’re not doing what you’re meant to do
The number 1 reason why you, often unknowingly, keep switching jobs, is because you’re not doing what you’re meant to do. You’re not doing work that is aligned with your soul’s purpose. And this is the reason why:
- you keep feeling unsatisfied at every job you start.
- you keep feeling that you are not living up to your potential in every job that you take.
- you get bored or annoyed easily.
- you end up leaving your job within a short amount of time, so history keeps repeating itself.
- you keep finding jobs that don’t match your personality, strengths, and values.
- you keep running into horrible bosses and colleagues.
I know what is like
Girls, let me tell you, you are not the only one who has experienced this vicious cycle. This used to be my story.
This cycle already started when I was still a student and was working on my side jobs. I would apply for a job, get hired and within a couple of months, I would either get bored, annoyed, unsettled or run into a horrible boss. Before I knew it, I would be on the lookout for a new job.
As a student, I thought that this was because I wasn’t doing the thing that I was studying for. But when I finally started to practice law. It was the same thing. Although I wasn’t as quick to up and leave like I did when I was a student, I still ended up job hopping quite a bit.
It wasn’t until I realized that the law wasn’t my purpose, that the momentum in my jobs started to slow down.
What to do when you keep switching job
Here are some tips on what you can do when you keep switching jobs:
- Explore the real reason why you keep switching jobs.
Are you only switching because of the circumstances or is there another reason?
- Figure out what you are meant to do in life.
Do whatever it takes to figure this out because it will help you tremendously. Get help from a Purpose Coach, try out different kinds of interests to see what light you up, read books, listen to podcasts etc.
- Cut yourself some slack.
It’s okay that you take your time to figure out your life’s purpose and experiment. Rome also wasn’t build in a day. Who says you have to be?
