5 Reasons to Consider Changing Direction 
1.You’re not growing.
If your current gig isn’t expanding your skills and talents, chances are it isn’t going to down the road. The earlier you are in your career, the sooner you should be picking up new skills.
Jobs challenge us, especially in the beginning. If you’re not growing now, you need to change gears so you can grow somewhere else.
2. You’re not passionate about your work.
It’s normal to experience challenging tasks that consume your day, but when you don’t feel even remotely passionate about the nature of your work, it’s a sure sign you’re not in the right career.
Consider brainstorming what you are passionate about. If the employer you work for doesn’t offer any positions that match your passions, it’s clear you need to reconsider your job situation.
If money permits, choose passion first.
3. You dread going to work each day.
If waking up in the morning fills you with regret the moment you begin getting ready for work, you need to take a look at your career.
Yes, it’s essential to work regularly to pay your bills, but at what expense? The expense of your happiness, mental sanity, and inspiration? Let’s hope not.
Consider changing direction in your career if this is the case.
4. You feel like you’re settling.
Most of us can tell if we’re going to stick with a job early on. It doesn’t take years of working at a company to wonder if we feel it’s the right fit.
If you feel like your current gig is temporary or like you’re settling, chances are it’s time to move on. Don’t waste more time than necessary in a career that makes you feel stuck.
You’re worth far more than that and your current job won’t be your last.
5. You’re already looking for something different.
If you find yourself looking on job boards, networking with professionals, or researching potential careers then it’s time to take your job search more seriously. If this describes you, you’re in need of change.
Take your silent cues as an opportunity to better search for the right fit. If you’re looking for a change, chances are it’s your subconscious clueing you in that you need a new job.
Changing direction in your career is absolutely normal, no matter what stage of your career you’re in.
Are you ready for a change?
