Trusting the universe Vs Being an adult.
Okay so I just re-read Steve's blog about the 10 reasons you should never get a job. I have to say I agree.
I truly need to leave my job. I know it's a matter of time. And I'm very angry tonight. Over BS.
Do I need to get the guts to quit, and trust the universe, OR do I wait for a sign from the universe that it's time.
I'm really feeling :mad:
You ask the question of questions! So we go through our lives and show up at "work," trying to make work "work" for us. Then, we wonder whether discord at work is a "sign" from the Universe that it's time to leave the job. But then we wonder, "wait--I am manifesting this. Is my manifestation a sign? Or is it not a sign for me to quit, but a sign for me to stay and work out my issue? If I don't work out my issue, will I simply take my discord with me wherever I go?" There is no doubt that if we were not working our jobs and careers that we would have so much time to take care of our expansion in more direct and free ways!
So do you need the guts to quit? Well, I give you credit for having guts, for just asking the question! Waiting for the Universe to give you a sign? It may be faster to just ask your non-conscious mind. One thing is for sure, if you quit your job, you'd be forced to make your intentions manifest! That might be the kick in the pants we all need! Best of luck!:d
Search your heart. You'll find the answer.
When I search and seek an answer from my heart, the word FREEDOM pops out.
I want to be free, that's why I don't want a job.
The important thing is that there may be deeper things going on you are not aware of. I have found that I've unconsciously indulged in behaviour that made me miserable in jobs and other areas but once I used self hypnosis I understood why: I was protecting myself, my ego could not believe I could handle being happier, taking more risks
If you don't work out what has made your job hard then you risk recreating crap for y self in your next one. Have you contributed in any subconscious way to your troubles? I believe we create our reality, which is painful initially ( taking responsibility for a job where I got hit every week was really tough) but the rewards are amazing in terms of lifelong happiness
Your title of this thread says to me you have very mixed feelings about quitting, equating it with immaturity. You could start by listing the things you get out of this situation even if they are totally negative (e g I used to blame the kids I taught for the reason I was disorganised, also i used to enjoy feeling morally in the right when others were rude etc) these may not be noble but they will be helpful
what happened with the job where I was hit was that it ended up being so awful that it pushed me to leave. I really had nothing to lose. That experience increased my courage.
If you want some ideas on self hypnosis fillow the links on my blog
Good lucjlk it's a wonderful adventure!
Like geniegal, the title of this thread raises some questions for me.
Here they are. You'll have to answer them. Some may not apply, others might, that's up to you to consider. Some are kind of repeats of others, in slightly different terms. I'm just trying to give a broad selection so one might hit a button and help you sort out the issues.
Why is it childish to trust things to work out for the best?
Why do adults have to work at jobs they hate?
Why is risk-taking a childish activity, as opposed to an adult one?
Why is being angry and dissatisfied a sign of adulthood?
Are adults automatically mature or have they just lost their ability/desire to take risks?
Why is it wrong to be childlike (not the same thing as childish!)?
Why does being an adult mean you have to be unhappy?
Why is trust incompatible with adulthood?
Of course I need to leave work. I even have a plan. I have know I need to go, for my own mental health if for no other reason.
Geniegal. I have been thinking over what you have said. I think the opposit is true. I have done so much work on myself, I have changed so much on the inside. It's time I bring the outside up to date. I plan to work for myself.
ChrisGinsburg, Your right the universe is not going to send me an e-mail. I need to go and make that e-mail.
And ButterflyWoman. I hope you don't mind I plan to cut past and print your list, and read it every day.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life. It's time I stopped planning and took action. I have spent most 2011 doing inner work on myself. The rest of 2011 and all of 2012 will be spent showing all that work to the outside wold. I hope to hear how I've changed!
What am I missing? ACTION!
Gotta go now.
In some instances timing is everything, in some cases no. Timing is real important if you’re landing an airplane, playing music or trying to catch a ball. However, waiting for things to align before you take action is not an effective use of the timing is everything theory.
Conditions are never right at the right time; the timing is always wrong! If you’re waiting for everything to be just right before taking action, you are in possession of a foolproof excuse for failure.

Your Business. Your Life. Your Terms
Wherever you go, you take yourself with you. Unless you do some work to clean up your vibration, you could very well attract a similar job to you in the future.
If you do decide to leave your job, bless it, be grateful for all the ways it has enriched your life, affirm that a new person who will love it will take it, and start to get clear on what kind of job (not actual position but what qualities it would have) you would like.
10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job
Karen, I think you can do both, trust the universe and be an adult.
Clean out your desk and get ready to leave. Look for the exit door, it's going to be obvious. Have your plan ready. Good luck
A follow-up point here. The concept of being an adult is bizarre. If you think about it, "growing up" and "being an adult" has nothing to do with simply being our essence. In fact, many child-like qualities of our true inner-being are highly praised. I think that the script of one "being an adult" should be looked at quite seriously, given the high likelihood that it will produce conflicting, core beliefs that sabotage our free-spirit-minded intentions.
From the perspective of the "future" it all worked out beautifully for you! :)
The day I decided to leave my Banking job of 14 years was a glorious one... The day ( 1 month after that... June 24, 1996) I actually quit was one of the happiest of my entire life.
I felt free.... And I left the job with the intention of never working again...I was 39.
So far I have been able to live up to that. Sometimes with difficulties.
Are there possibilities that you are missing at your current job? Certainly you shouldn't have to work somewhere you hate, but don't miss any potential opportunities either that could transform it for you.
Also, I agree with other posters who have said to look within to see how you have attracted this situation, lest you manifest another like it in the future.
I have now done this quite a few times now, quit my job with nothing really to fall back on to. I can't say I quit all my jobs because I hated them, most of them were because they had run their course, and I no longer got anything out of them. Although I did quit one because I was very unhappy, something came along to fill its place...and I didn't even apply for jobs.
I will also say, I am not naturally a risk taker, and yet I have noticed whenever I take risks things always seem to work out for me. Sometimes I feel like part of the universe's plan for me is to get used to risk taking. It's such a foreign thing to me, but yet at the same time, it seems to me whenever I take risk, positive results are obtained. It's almost like my little talent 'the universe' has bestowed upon me.
I am not saying this works for everyone, in some ways I feel certain people having been certain gifts, such as positive results from taking risks...but I don't think everyone will obtain the same result.
My daughter was sick, and I needed to call in. They laid a guilt trip on me for it. It's busy... I am well with in the company's call in policy.
Just quitting a job with nothing to fall back on... IDK, in a way it feels ungrateful. I am grateful to have had the job through what is the worst job market in my lifetime.
Let me state that everyone is miserable. I'm 44 and have never hated a job so much. With the job market the way it is, employers are treating everyone like crap. Not just mine. Yes, I have made mistakes that I need to learn from. Letting people walk all over me for one thing. Doing the job of people who make 3-4 times what I make... things I need to change. But I'm looking to become self employed, not just move from one hell whole to the next one.
Karen, I would suggest doing whatever you feel you need to do. Not what you want, but what you need. There is a difference. Money is not everything, and if the birds of the air do not work, and yet they are fed each day by God, then surely he does not value them over you and will show you the same courtesy. Worry not about tomorrow, for today has enough trouble of it's own. :) Be at peace young one.
I made the choice not to have mouths to feed, so I could make stuff ups and the only person in life effected would be me. It just a personal path I took, but I guess that path allows me to take more risks.
This latest job I have taken, is more for personal growth in learning to be more confident. I basically took it on, so I could learn to be more ballsy and stick up for myself, because I actually have at least something to fall back on if it this job doesn't work out, so I don't have heaps to lose, but lots to learn and gain.
