Quitting Your Job to Start Another Career
There is a big possibility that you have just quit your job because you would like to start another career. The career that you may want to have may not be something that is considered usual. For example, a career in radio is not considered to be usual. There are a lot of people who like it but would rather not do it because they are not sure how they can be successful at it.
When you decide to have a career in radio, you should at least think about the following:
- You may need to send yourself to school because you need a degree in order to qualify for some of the jobs that are available.
- You would have to encounter a lot of rejections before you will be given a chance.
- You need to purchase the right gear or at least rent a studio so that you can create your very own demo tape.
You know that it can be hard to start a career in radio if you do not have enough money saved up. Perhaps you would like to check your self managed superannuation fund so that you can use it for your current needs.
It can become frustrating at times and there will be times when you would wish that you have never quit your old job but remember that if you are only working in order to get money, then you will not have any passion for it. You will probably just do mediocre work because you do not particularly like what you are doing.
Here are some of the benefits of quitting a job that you do not like to start the career that you have always wanted:
- You know that you will be able to make new friends.
You may have made friends in your old office but with most colleagues, you usually just leave and you would lose contact. Before you realize it, you are not friends anymore. When you start another career, you can always build relationships with other people. You may never know, you may even find lasting relationships.
- You can work on something that you have always wanted to do.
You know that it can be hard to have a career in radio but as long as it is your passion, you will be determined to make it work. Even if you have to work long hours at times or even if you would make mistakes, you know that you will still be happy because you are doing something that you have always wanted to do.
- You will be in a better mental and psychological state.
When you have a career that you do not particularly like or if you are doing something that you are not exactly proud of, you know that you may be feeling sad even when there is nothing to be sad about. Quitting your job and doing something else that you want to do will make a huge difference on your current state of mind.
With all of these things in mind, you know that you have made the right decision to quit. You will find your passion and you would work on it to the best of your abilities.
