A guy shared a story of how he left a 9-5 job trying to pursue something better which could give him more income but ended up doing worse than what he previously does and now regrets his decision to quit the job.
Here is the story
“I have been stuck at my previous job for almost two years and life has been getting more and more mundane.
Even though the job is not that difficult and life was easy, it has made me lazier and lazier as the days go by.
I am earning decently, about $4k/mth and have a lot of spare time between work as once I am done with my daily tasks, I can just do whatever that I like as long as I do not take my company’s time to earn income on the side as it will constitute moonlighting and it would get me fired.
As I got lazier, I thought to myself that this is not what I wanted to do for the long run and I made a rash decision to quit the job and dabble in something else.
I eventually chose to go into the sales line as I see my friends in different types of sales all doing well and earning quite decently.
Little did I know that I was not cut out for this as my previous job has made me lazy, something which is not good when it came to sales.
I was lazy to prospect for potential clients or even follow up with some of the contacts which I have.
The amount which I take home a month now has also dropped drastically as sales job usually have a low basic and it is commission based, the more I close with my clients the more I take home.
I regret giving up an easy and comfortable $4k/mth for something which I thought was ‘easier’ now.”
