  • Your body is telling you that enough is enough

If you are getting the Sunday-night dread, then get out of your job. Sunday-night-specific anxiety can be a way of your body to tell you that you are not at the right place.

On a long term this thing can seriously affect your emotional well-being. You will start feeling that even the simplest task is impossible for you, but if your career is fulfilling enough, then it will boost your confidence and your self-esteem.

  • You know you’re at the wrong place

When in office you keep wandering about the job that you would love to do, then you must know that you are at the wrong place. May be you are Googling about your favourite job profile or just bookmarking the companies that interest you, what are you waiting for????…Just do it….may be at the start you might earn only ample amount of money, but later on you will get success and thank your own self for changing your job.

So, now you know what all signs you need to see. If you too are experiencing any one of them, then don’t ignore and try to convince yourself that money is not as important as your happiness.
