Often, when people are feeling unsatisfied in their careers, they automatically think the solution is to look for another job or make a career change. However, instead of a new job, what you might really need is an adjustment in attitude towards your current situation.
“If you’re jumping from job to job for the same reasons — they don’t appreciate you, the boss is mean, no one ever listens to you, etc. — then guess what? The problem isn’t the job, it’s most likely your attitude,” says Noelle Nelson, who has a doctorate in clinical psychology and is the author of “The Power of Appreciation in Business.”
