The final straw

Making drastic life changes—especially those that affect finances—tends to create a deep sense of anxiety in most people. For the majority of the work force, disagreeable as a job may be, it still supplies a paycheck. Unfortunately, this reality is what usually prevents most people from pursuing better opportunities. When employees complain about their work difficulties, they often explain their dissatisfaction by stating that they thought they were offered a great proposition when they were hired initially, but soon realized that the job wasn’t so impressive after all.

Rather than seek employment elsewhere, they choose to wait, hoping that they might be given an increase in salary, a promotion or a bonus that would further compensate them. In some cases, employees become resigned to a stagnant work environment and are pacified for the time being. This inaction can turn into months and—for some—even years. However, a sudden situation may occur that results in some serious soul-searching.
