When you are unable to come out of your comfort zone in your career
A career is too important nowadays considering the times we live in, that is quickly changing and evolving. Entrepreneurship is given more importance nowadays due to the inflation and problems of unemployment surrounding the country. It is no doubt that work pressure increases when several employees are laid off in a company. People also quit jobs due to the constant work pressure and regular quarrels that enter the workplace due to ineffective planning and management.
If your boss or team leader has given you a lot of tasks that you are failing at constantly, then it is time to rethink your career decisions. Not everyone can come out of their comfort zone and when they do, it becomes really a painful process mentally and physically as well. Here are some ways how you can build self-acceptance and develop your career surrounding your comfort zone.
1) Take things as they are:
Probably you have been mistreated or taunted by your office colleagues or coworkers for working in a particular style and not willing to adjust or adapt when things don't go your way. Probably you may also feel insulted because your boss doesn't understand your problems and always complains to you about your lack of teamwork and coordination. If you are living in toxic work culture, definitely your self-esteem has been affected in the worst way. Instead of denying all the claims and accusations that you are getting at your workplace, it would be better if you accept things as they are. If your boss is not willing to promote you or even is reconsidering your role to someone else because of your lack of performance, it means you are not riding the right boat in your career.
2) Running away is not escapism:
If you plan to put down your papers and tell your boss that you can no longer tolerate the toxicity and negativity at your work, then be confident about the same. Remember that running away is not escapism always. Probably destiny has something else stored in your career progression. And you need to figure that out sooner or later and these events are created in your career life so that you can move out of the current workplace and build a new work-life balanced career that suits you the most. After all, not everyone is meant to be an Ambani or Adani in his life.
3) Define your comfort zone:
When people mock you for being too shy or timid or working only within your limits, then it is time to define your comfort zone. You can write down what are the best days of your work life when you are at utmost productive. Is it the morning time or evening time or during weekends or during weekdays - you need to find out what is the timeframe when you can give the best results and find out jobs that suit your work culture and comfort zone. You may never know that finding things your way and doing things that keep your soul satisfied are a few of the best ways to build a new "comfort zone" work culture that many will follow in the coming years.
