Unhappiness at work has become a common problem nowadays. In fact, a vast majority of employees out there—at one point—have felt unhappy in their jobs or current positions. This is critical both in short-term and long-term success; plus, it can greatly contribute to productivity, health, and so forth. There are two questions that stand out regarding this matter: Why are so many people unhappy with work and why aren’t they doing anything to fix this predicament? Now, you may also ask yourself how to get pleasure from a job? We’ll try to answer these and tackle what makes an expert psychic with regard to career counseling.
According to studies, there are two primary reasons why employees are unhappy at work at despite this, they choose to stay in their, say, discouraging jobs instead of starting a new career. The first one is they can’t figure out the reason of their unhappiness; in the process, they feel illogical and think there’s no other way to get rid of the said state. The second one is they don’t have an idea of what to do next. Simply put, they know that there’s something wrong, but they don’t have the mindset to change or even identify a viable option that they pursue. The factors that are included here are going to be elaborated in the succeeding paragraphs and hopefully, they can help you make the right career choices.
Reasons for Unhappiness
In an effort to help you understand why you’re feeling unhappy, here is a brief list of notable reasons.
Do you feel that you’re working extra hard, but getting paid pennies? Then, you are not alone. When you think that there’s a disparity between the level of effort that you put in and the amount of pay that you receive, then it’s natural to seek a career change and think that your existing job is a waste of time, effort, and everything in between. In line with this, looking for the happiest jobs should be in your radar anytime soon.
After some time, you just can’t miss (no matter how hard you try) patterns, behaviors, and decisions among others, that lead you to believe that your current job is unstable. For instance: you worry about being fired or laid off and eventually worry about the state of the entire company. Regardless of the reason, you encounter the feeling that your job is unstable and this leads to the accumulation of stress. Which, by the way, may lead to a wide array of health problems.
Furthermore, one of the most essential things that an enterprise—regardless of its size—can offer its employees is a stable environment. As you can see it’s not just about getting pay checks and having a proven track record when it comes to stability can somewhat inject a sense of happiness in your tenure as an employee.
Yes, at present, you’re doing well in your position, but do you see room for advancement? For instance, are your salary increase requests always being turned down? Are there promotions? How about opportunities to learn? Bear in mind that the opportunity to learn new things and being educated is essential in basically any company position, especially if you’re in the early stages of your promising career. Therefore, make it a point to learn as much as possible in your employment since this is the key to career development. Also, if your company lacks the mentioned aspects, then it’s natural to feel stagnant, contemplate new career ideas, or work toward something that leads to greener pastures.
Do you think that the people that you work with don’t like you? Do you get the feeling that you’re not working with the right number of people that you respect, admire, and so on? Then, it’s normal to think of career change ideas since the social aspect of work creates a huge impact on making you stay or otherwise. This, given the fact that you spend a huge chunk of your day at work. Putting this factor into consideration, it is only fitting that you are surrounded by individuals who support you and work with you as a team.
Do you work in a flexible and results-oriented environment? Flexible in a sense that you can take your family out for dinner in a heartbeat and easily turn down any task that is not of your expertise? If you are, then you’re in a good situation; otherwise, you consider seeking change of career advice. Why? You ask. This is because flexibility at work means that your company is more interested in your success rate and basically completing your job with excellence, efficiency, and everything in between rather than completing your work hours at any time of the day. To add, chances are: the less flexible your job is, the unhappier or more bored you may become.
