If there is one common complaint that comes from most workers, it is that they do not like their boss. Whether they are rude, power-hungry, or just plain inconsiderate, many people go to work liking their job but not their boss. All anyone in this situation has to do to escape, however, is look at the real reason they are in that situation in the first place. Whether it is because you fail to set high enough goals, therefore disabling you from climbing the company ladder or if it is simply from a standpoint of not wanting to stand up for yourself, most workers have to, unfortunately, deal with this problem. In this post, we are going to talk about a couple things to consider when your boss is driving you crazy and you want to work for yourself.
It’s Not As Easy As You Think!
If you were ever able to go behind a character such as your boss or an executive at the company you work for, you will see tons and tons of hidden layers filled with stress, anxiety, and worry (any leader for whom this is not true is not doing a good enough job). This is unfortunately what most people miss completely when they decide that they are going to branch out and either work for themselves or start their own company. We recommend for all those in favor of giving their job “the kick in the rear” to pay attention to a couple key points; firstly, you will ultimately fail if you embark on a different journey for the sole reason that you don’t want to be doing something else. Steve Jobs shared some wonderful wisdom on this aspect by saying “ people say you need to have a lot of passion for what you do, because if you don’t, then any rational person would give up”. Just make sure that you are embarking on something that pulls you in and makes you passionate about it. Second of all, make sure that you know entrepreneurship is not something that you can just do and then succeed in. It is, unfortunately, something which requires you to fail, then try again, then fail, and try again..etc. Make sure that you are aware of this when you embark on the journey to be your own boss. Lastly, make sure that you also realize the potential of how fulfilling it can be as well! Once you have figured your craft out and you are actively pursuing it, there is a huge sense of accomplishment now that you have accepted one of life’s main challenges and succeeded. You will then be on your way to leading a much more pleasant life filled with opportunity and hope as opposed to oppression and despair.
