Three Signs that You're Ready for a Change
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">There are times in your life when you’re not aware that you are crying out for a change. A change in jobs, career, location, people you associate with. These are the three most obvious signs that you’re ready for a change.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">You don’t want to get up from your bed</span></h2> <div class="wp-block-image wp-image-5175 size-medium"><figure class="alignleft size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="1024" height="682" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-296817-1024x682.jpg" alt="Three Signs that You're Ready for a Change" class="wp-image-9785" title="Three Signs that You're Ready for a Change" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-296817-1024x682.jpg 1024w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-296817-300x200.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-296817-768x512.jpg 768w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-296817-1200x800.jpg 1200w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-296817.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /><figcaption>You and your bed: still a better love story than Twilight.</figcaption></figure></div> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">It’s Monday morning and your first alarm rings. You hit the snooze button and thirty minutes later, </span><a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/demotivation-overcome-mental-obstacles/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span style="font-weight: 400;">you’re still in bed</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">, trying to bargain with the gods for five more minutes. Motivation is one thing whose absence is truly felt when trying to peel your body away from that bed. You scrabble for anything, any inspiration at all to make it worth your while. You think about how many late time-ins you can get away with before getting fired, or if you can call in sick about that PMS you just had a week ago. Time for a change.</span></p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">You’re bored and do stupid things</span></h2> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You’re bored because you’re not being challenged intellectually or physically. As the old saying goes, idle hands are the devil’s workshop. When you’re bored, you tend to do stupid things just to see how it will go off. Just like challenging the fortitude of your boss by showing up late everyday for a week. When you’re bored, you also tend to nitpick and </span><a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/conflict-workplace/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span style="font-weight: 400;">pick a quarrel </span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">for the most inane issues. Tempers flare up easily.&nbsp;</span>You need a change, man.</p> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">Your stress shows in your body</span></h2> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You don’t need people to tell you that you look tired, you feel it. Stress can also trigger illness; from the most benign like dandruff, to psoriasis, to something life-threatening like an asthma attack. If your lifestyle or job or another person is already causing so much stress it’s affecting your health, you need to stir things up. You desperately need a change.</span></p> <figure class="wp-block-image alignnone size-large wp-image-5176 size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1024" height="682" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-544117-1024x682.jpg" alt="Three Signs that You're Ready for a Change" class="wp-image-9786" title="Three Signs that You're Ready for a Change" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-544117-1024x682.jpg 1024w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-544117-300x200.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-544117-768x512.jpg 768w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-544117-1200x800.jpg 1200w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/03/pexels-photo-544117.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /><figcaption>Wake up and smell the coffee! It&#8217;s time to change.</figcaption></figure> <h2><span style="font-weight: 400;">Ready for a change</span></h2> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Listen to the signs that’s telling you it’s time to move on. Whether it’s from a relationship, a job, career path, or even a country. Not growing as a person or getting any upward mobility in your career is a sign that you need to shake things up. Don’t be stagnant, you’ll get old early. &nbsp;</span><a href="https://blog.trueprofile.io/turn-change-into-opportunity/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Change need not be feared</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">, as it can be the start of a great chapter in your life. Change jobs, change locations. Why not go abroad and finally get your dream job? What’s important is you take one step forward.</span></p>
