5 Signs You Aren’t cut to Work for Someone Else
Some people were not born to follow others, but to call the shots, to work for themselves and build something that belongs to them. Regardless of the life you choose to live, you will always encounter the never-ending battle between individuals, recruiters, and employers. Facing the constant efforts of recruiters’ and employers’ to place individuals in a box, there are those who admit defeat and remain in the box.
Then there are those who profusely refuse and fight everyday to change it despite of thought of remaining in a small confined box for the rest of their lives.And you realize this when you decided to try out your new job and everything it seemed to offer.
Because, guess what? You aren’t meant to work for others. You are your own boss. And you call the shots.
Here are the five signs you are not cut to be a simple employee:
1. You’re overactive
Overactive people will continually struggle to stay in one job for a long period of time. They are restless because they require constant challenge, an interesting role within an organization that allows them to color outside the lines.
This is where it begins and ends. Organizations have so many rules and regulations that it can be difficult to color outside the lines.You know exactly what part of the work is right up your alley and which one seems like Greek or Chinese. So you know you could excel at whatever you decide to do, but when you’re working for someone else, you end up slacking off at your workplace This results in restlessness, which leads to boredom.
2. You Love great Challenges and big Dreams
It is a well-known fact that high-performing individuals leave organizations if they are not given significant challenges in their role. High performers are renowned for pushing the boundaries and achieving goals that exceed expectations. All this make possible to have big dreams for the future. When you’re working for others, their dreams become yours and their aims also become yours by default. And somewhere along the line, you begin to lose your individuality. And your own dreams, the ones you made when the world was at your feet and everything seemed possible. If you still have that, somewhere in you, you know it’s time to leave.
3. Creativity flows in your veins
Creative individuals’ internal desire keeps them highly motivated. They thoroughly enjoy unveiling their plethora of ideas and innovative solutions to management within organizations.
Whenever there’s a project coming your way, do you mentally make changes or think of how much better it could have been formulated? Or do you think about how different you would have done it? It’s because you are naturally prone to harbouring new passionate ideas, projects and guidelines.
4. Not just “another one”.
When you’re working for others, or rather working WITH others, you tend to get categorized into a particular group of people assigned to a particular department. In between all these specifics, they don’t realize that each one of you is different and what may apply for someone, may not work for you. The moment you sense some friction there, that’s your sign.
5. You Want to be the Leader.
Sometimes, you may find yourself unconsciously in charge despite your position and more often than not, people ask you for advice on business, finances, legal matters etc. The fact that they appreciate and possibly follow your directions to the bone indicates that you’re someone who’s supposed to be giving the orders. Not taking them.
You are a bit wired, it’s a part of your personality that is hard to ignore, which is why these individuals effectively have no option but to leave a laborious role to enter the majestic world of entrepreneurship.
