Do you feel you’re in a rat race? Is your Boss being overly authoritative on you? Do you hate your job? May be worse, you’re so embarrassed to show your paycheck. Worse still, you might be killing your own potential to doing greater things with your life.
The good news is, you can overcome all these. Not by asking for a pay-rise. Not either by changing jobs every turn of a new month. Let me tell you how.
Do a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses/Limitations, Opportunities, Threats) analysis of yourself first. Do research of how you can enhance your potential and beat the odds you might face. By now you know am talking of preparing yourself for a new venture (a new self owned business).
Read widely and use all relevant resources available to you. Learn from people who’ve been there. People who’ve made it. Follow them on social media and find out what they’re up to. Duplicate the relevant ones, leave out the irrelevant stuff and save yourself time and energy.
During your leave from work, take a breather. Have enough rest and use part of your leave to reflect. After you’ve discovered where your greatest opportunity lies in terms of starting your own business, make sure you’ve visualized it working or else, it would simply not work. Next, plan well and execute your plan at the right time.
Still, don’t quit your job. You never know it might not work. It takes luck too. Some bad news this is but don’t worry, you can overcome it. Your plan may fail to work because of lack of proper planning from your side. It might be because of business regulation issues or lack of enough capital.
Nevertheless, you can succeed if you deal with all and more of the above stumbling blocks. When you feel ready, and you’ve for-seen your plan working, tell your Boss. If possible, request him/her to support you. You need his/her blessings. Who knows, you might need him later?
Remember, what goes around, comes back around. When the reality sinks with your Boss, write a humble resignation letter. Eventually, move on and embrace your new self granted freedom.
To Your Success!
