Job stability is important but aren’t your dreams important, too? Sometimes, people spend their lives at a job they don’t enjoy. When do you know if it’s the right moment to pursue a different, more fulfilling career?

Why Now Might Be a Good Time to Change Careers?

In different life situations, sometimes we allow for certain things to go on for too long, mostly because it is somehow more comfortable to keep those things the way they are. Don’t feel judged. It’s ok. It happens to most of us and it happens in various situations including our professional life.

Changing careers requires courage and determination because it includes a transition period that will not be as comfortable as staying where you are, but it is likely to be more fruitful than staying put. That career move cannot happen overnight. This is a decision that needs to be thought through and through. But, how can you tell if it’s time for a change? There are many indicators that show if it’s a good time to make a move. Here are two of the most common ones.

 

Why Now Might Be a Good Time to Change Careers

If your job no longer motivates you, then maybe it’s time to make a career move.

You’re Feeling Worn Out

You might’ve loved your job once but maybe that’s not the case anymore. Things change, people change. If you’re at a point in your life where you constantly feel burned out by work, it’s a sign that you need a change.

You Constantly Dream of Something Better

There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to better yourself and create better opportunities for your family, too. If you feel like your current job is not checking those boxes, it’s ok to accept that it’s time to move on. That might mean different things to different people. You might just want a better position at a different company, or you might want to go all out, start your own business and become your own boss.

Work takes up a third of your day, a third of your time. Why not invest that time into doing something you love that will bring you long-term benefits? Are you already part of the insurance industry?
