Just Say NO!
I’ve recently had 3 jobs fall into my lap, and I’m grateful to be finally working, and proud of myself for being progressive in getting work; however, I’ll be quitting one of said jobs. Its a sales job…I’m to nice for sales.
I was super amped to get hired immediately when I interviewed for the job but I can’t see any longevity in staying at this place. Perhaps the frustration of dealing with a broken computer at work for a week is wearing on me. Or the demand to meet a quota of performance isn’t my thing. Maybe, it was when my boss told me that I was to nice, and it pissed me off enough to make me reconsider why I took on this job….ALL THE ABOVE.
I could stick it out. I’ve done it before, and it can be easily done especially when your coworkers are charming and helpful and encouraging, but I’m excited to leave. I feel empowered to know that saying no is alright. I shouldn’t be ashamed for wanting to be happy. I need to embrace this new assertiveness of being a boss in my life. I don’t regret getting the position and can actually thank them for exposing me to pushing back, but I’m not sticking around just to merely perform the tasks of the job. I want to be happy to perform at my job because its fulfilling for me.
Here’s to knowing when to throw in the towel. Time to be daring. No Regrets.
