If you’ve just typed “my job is making me suicidal”, then you need immediate assistance. Don’t worry you’re in good hands right now. Come on let’s do it.
Your situation reminds me of Judith Woods, whose boss and colleagues bullied her to such an extent that she ended up in hospital. I know it would be tough on you, but the truth is this – “Evil people exist & their only aim is to hurt you to the brink of suicide.”
You know that you’ve to quit the job, but you can’t because of money. I understand that. That’s the biggest reason why people continue to get tortured in a job that’s beneath them. But that’s going to end now, because I am going to tell you things that will change your life forever.
How to leave a job that’s making you suicidal
I am not gonna ask you why is your job making you suicidal, because the reasons are not important anymore. What’s actually important is your life.
I will tell you ways in which you will be able to quit your job and live the life you deserve.
Before we begin, I want to tell you something.
You’re are awesome.
Yes. That’s true.
Maybe people around you are not realizing it. Maybe you’re having doubts about yourself, but the fact remains – You’re awesome.
You were not made for this shitty job. You’ve somehow ended up working in this job, but this is not where you’ve to be forever.
There’s a reason you joined this job. Maybe, you needed to learn a few things about people. Maybe you needed to know a few things about the world. But, I’m sure that your time in this job is up. You’ve learnt the things you needed to learn. And you’ve earned the things you needed to earn.
Now, you need to move ahead. Earn a lot more & enjoy at least 20 times more. A job that’s making depressed doesn’t know your worth. So, there is not point trying to adjust.
As of now, you’ve two options:
- Get a new job
- Create your own source of income
I would suggest you to try both the options.
How to get a new job
Regardless of what people have been telling you, getting another job is one of the easiest things in this world.
I’ll tell you the various ways in which you can get a new job.
The LinkedIn Method
- Upload a good photo of yours on your LinkedIn profile.
- Complete your profile (Incomplete profile is not going to work that well).
- Get a list of companies where you would want to work
- Get the LinkedIn profile of those people who are responsible for hiring
- Get in touch with them. But don’t begin with asking for jobs. You need to build a relationship first. You can begin with short messages, telling them that they’re an inspiration & one day you would like to become like them.
- Build on this relationship and keep in touch regularly. Then one day, ask them if there is a way in which you would be able to learn a lot more by working with them.
- You’ll need to follow up.
- If you try this with 20 LinkedIn connections, you’re bound to get a job call in at least 3-4 of them.
The Walk In Interview Method
You already know how this one works. You need to keep your resume updated. Try to appear on as many interviews as you can. Your advantage is that you have work experience. Just walk in bold and face the interview.
The Startup Method
Startup companies are awesome places to work. You will learn a lot there and the atmosphere is good as well. But the biggest advantage is this – It’s easy to get a job in a startup, if you’re able to show your fire.
Get a list of startups and meet their owners personally. Let them know that you want to work with them. And keep on following up. Your chances of getting a job are very high here.
The Friends Method
You must be having friends. Or maybe you had friends at some point in your life. Contact them and tell them that you need a job in their company. And follow up.
It works, because you know what?- I helped my friends get a job in the company I was working for.
Getting a new job might look daunting at first, but it’s very easy actually. All you have to do is try. Do you remember how you got your current job?
You tried. Didn’t you?
And see what happened when you tried?
You got a job.
See, it works. If you try, you’ll get a job.
Getting another job is good, but creating your own source of income is very important as well.
How to create your own source of income
I will tell you about a few methods that will help you get a lot more money than what you’re earning right now.
Many people have quit their jobs to begin consulting. If it feels daunting, you can begin with freelancing. And, then later on switch to consulting.
There are a lots of sites that offer freelancing opportunities – Craigslist, Upwork, Freelancer, Odesk, Elance are some of them.
In many case, I have seen the freelancing jobs converting into long term contracts.
Blogging is simply awesome. I would suggest each and every one to get a blog. Do you know why? Because, sooner or later a blog is bound to make money. It’s kind of guaranteed to make money.
A lot of people were able to quit their jobs by blogging. You can be one of them.
Blogging is not at all difficult or technical. Everybody can start a blog. You just need to write things you want to write about.
Do you like making videos? It doesn’t have to be funny (It’s good though). You can create educational videos. You can teach stuff online.
If you’re a standup comedian, you can make a killing on You Tube. You can also make a killing if you can do the following things:
- Teach about a subject – Maths, physics, chemistry, history, geography etc.
- Teach about a skill like – Dancing, drawing, martial arts, pottery etc.
- Tell interesting stories – Horror, romantic, etc.
- Create inspirational videos
It would be an unending list. There is no limit to your creativity. Just try anything.
If you are an artist, then Patreon is the best place for you. Lot of artists are earning hundreds and thousands of dollars on Patreon for just working on their passion. I would suggest you to check that once.
Start Saving Money
Most of us are bad in saving money. And lack of money binds us to current job. It makes us dependent on our jobs as we live from paycheck to paycheck. Let’s change this system forever.
From today onward, start an online term deposit (fixed deposit). Start with the minimum amount that’s allowed. And make it a habit of creating a new deposit each and every month.
I know it will be difficult, but creating these will help you a lot in your future. Because, lack of money will never ever be able to shackle you.
I have multiple fixed deposits. And I create at least one deposit each month. It feels great. Now, I don’t have to fear financial uncertainty & I don’t have to ask for loans when I need money. I feel financially secure.
I want you to experience the same kind of security that I am enjoying right now.
You have lots of options in front of you. You don’t have to stick around with the job that’s making your life miserable.
Making money is one of the easiest things in this world. Making a million dollars is difficult but making good enough to survive is not at all difficult. All you have to do is try.
