I Quit My Job!: 3 Powerful Reasons Why I Quit!




Why does anyone want to quit their job?  I have heard several stories, some horrifying,  from friends, colleagues and family members, on the reasons why they have left their place of employment.  In conversations, several individuals conveyed the following reasons:

  • Overworked from the steadily increasing circulation of paperwork with little to no time to complete tasks. 

  • Lower salary in comparison to newly hired staff with little experience, knowledge, and skill. 

  • Lack of formal training from mentors, supervisors or managers.

  • Lack of respect and appreciation for hard work and innovative ideas.  

These are just the tip of the iceberg. I could go on and on for the entire week. However, for me, there were three particular reasons that prompted the final countdown to leave my job, and pursue my passion for organization and planning full time. So, lets begin...

# 3. Loss of job satisfaction.

Growth is a significant part of my life. Since 2006 I have been working on rebuilding my self worth and confidence.  It's no surprise that leaving took all the confidence that I could muster. I had to beat fear with a stick to keep it from deterring me from venturing out on my own.

Leaving a job is a huge deal, especially in my case. I left to resume my position as a professional organizer and home stager, with "Organization With Suzie." I consciously thought about how I was going to make my company successful.

I initially took an outside job to help build my skills, finish my Master's degree, and provide a certain level of expertise to the unit that I was working in.  I was hungry and eager to learn all that I could. However, after a few years I felt like I wasn't going anywhere. I used to love going to work.  I had a great purpose - so I thought.  It turned out that the job didn't align with my passion at all.  I was no longer hungry for the elements of the job. I was on the verge of burnout,  so I left.

My goal was and is to help as many people as possible.  When restrictions are placed on you, then performing your day to day duties becomes difficult. This was the case in my situation.  No one wants to work in an environment where you have to ask permission to do your essential tasks.

In lieu of waiting on another job opportunity, I created one.  I could have stayed, but that would have put me farther away from living my dream.  So, it was either now or never.



#2.  I had the late Sunday night, Monday morning bubble guts headache, I can't get no rest syndrome.  



As mentioned above,  I used to love going to work. Completing my assignments gave me joy until I felt overworked and used.  The weekend couldn't come quick enough.  On Friday's I was so happy to leave and couldn't wait to peel off out of the parking lot.  On Saturday's I felt ok, but didn't want the day to go by so quickly. By Sunday, I was starting to feel the sickness come on. By the afternoon, I was thinking about work again.

Sunday night around 8:00, the first bubble erupted. I knew it would be a long night until the wee hours of Monday morning. By this time I was already thinking about calling in. Most times when my cellphone alarm went off I would hit snooze about 4, 5 maybe even 10 times. I wanted to stay in the comforts of my bed, with my plush red polka dot Christmas robe that I wear all year round, and not step one foot into work.

For more than six months,  I waited patiently for life to change.  I  quickly realized that life wasn't going to change unless I changed.  It was time to make a decision,  which brings me to the number one reason why I quit my job.

#1 Why am I here?

I asked this question for too long.  If you feel that you are starting to ask yourself, "why am I here?" then more than likely you're not supposed to be there. This is how I felt everyday. However, I decided to work on a plan, so that when I did leave, I had a map of what I needed to do, and how I need to do it.

I know that making a plan isn't perfect, but it's essential. If you leave a job without a plan in place, there are no worries because you can always develop one.

  • Sit down and think about what you would like to do? 

  • What makes you happy?

  • When are you willing to start?

After answering these initial questions, search for something that will enable you to make money while you are working on your passion.  There are several videos available on affiliate marketing, freelance work, as well as how to start an online business. If these are of no interest to you, start researching subjects that can benefit you long term.

In the early part of the year, my mind was so full that I couldn't imagine myself fully focused on pursuing my goals.  I was listening everyday to motivational messages, and the most important part was to take  "action."  I hadn't taken any action.

Several disappointments, and frustrations later, I started to gather everything that I needed to make my business successful. I conducted research and developed my business cards, brochures and operations manual.  I had already launched my YouTube and social media pages and started connecting with groups within my Niche.

When the time was right,  I left. Prayer and meditation played a major role in changing my outlook on life. Peace of mind is so much better than sitting and wondering - what if ? In addition, feeling  physically ill, and mentally distressed was a recipe for disaster. There are no benefits to waiting for something that may never come. If you want your situation to change, change yourself!

 Now that I have been working on my own, life has been grand. There's a new found freedom of waking up every morning and working towards your goal. I'm able to help people in a way that I wasn't able to do before.  My goal is to help at least 1 million people, and then then 1 million more. How am I going to do this? One person at a time.
