Why You Should Quit Your Job In 2022

If you have a job you don’t like and have been thinking about quitting, I would say that 2022 is the year to do it or any year after. I will show you how to do that, but first, let’s discuss why you should quit your job now.

why you should quit your job

Why Should I Quit My Job?

On average, most people are quitting their jobs and switching to online income sources because they are realizing that they don’t have to settle for less and they have the ability to work for themselves.

The number of people who are doing this increased, especially during the pandemic. More and more people are escaping the rat trap and are enjoying the benefits of working on their own terms.

Many people are still hesitant because they were programmed to believe that life is hard. You have to change your programming and believe in yourself that you can easily attract anything you want.

We will discuss this more so that you can hopefully start doing this for yourself as well.

I also suggest that you check out my free video training about how to raise your vibrations to attract anything you want.

The Rat Trap

We are all pulled into a trap through the monetary system, feeling like we have to do a job we don’t like just because we need to pay the bills.

That has some truth in the sense that you do have bills to pay, and things you need to buy. We live in a society where you need money to do things.

The part where I would disagree is the belief that being employed is the only way to make money.

Having a job is only one way out of an infinite number of ways that you could make money. I would even argue that it’s one of the worst ways as well because you can’t claim tax expenses. 

So you basically have to pay tax on everything, even if you, you know, use a car to go to and from work anyway, there’s loads of pros and cons, more cons than pros.  

But I would say that for a large percentage of people, it’s an avoidable trap if you know how to escape it.

Your Real Purpose

You’re not living just so you can do a job that you hate until you’re too old to do it. That’s not the purpose of life. 

Each of us has a purpose to share and do something we’re passionate about. 

I have articles about how to have passive income or create your own business, one that you’ll truly enjoy but that’s a whole different topic.

The point is, when we do what we love, we raise our vibrations. If our vibrations are always high, we attract abundance.

Anyone who tells you that you need to work at a job you hate in order to make money is lying. The truth is, no one ever got rich working a 9 to 5 job. 

If there are, they are probably stressed out and they don’t have time for their families and other personal stuff.

When you are stressed, your health declines and so does your vibration and negative vibrations block abundance.

The Great Resignation

The term “great resignation” refers to an increase in the number of people quitting their jobs willingly during late 2020 and early 2021.

While some data reveal that this pattern began more than a decade before, it has increased during the pandemic.

Why is the great resignation happening?

The pandemic has caused many people to reconsider their work and life balance.

Those who were getting burnt out at work and not being able to take care of their families were the usual people who quit.

A lot of people were also hesitant to return to face-to-face jobs because of fear of contracting the disease. Because of this, the elderly were also motivated to retire early.

A lot of businesses also switched to digital because of the lockdown restrictions and many of those who weren’t able to adapt their businesses online closed down.

Why You Should Quit Your Job Now

1: Inflation Is Gonna Eat You Alive

This is the year to do it what have we been seeing in the last two years? What we’ve seen is the government printing trillions of dollars worth of their currency out of thin air. 

If you know anything about the economic cycles and how the inflation and banking systems work, that’s not good. 

If you print an infinite amount of currency, it’s going to make the prices go up and the value of each unit of that currency goes down. 

If you’re not getting a 10 to 30% raise every year, that means that your salary is decreasing each year.

It’s easy to mask this by just focusing on one specific type of inflation. For example, you could say that house prices have stayed the same or have even gone up.

But that’s just a small part of a much bigger picture. If you look at the cost of everything and then you compute the average, all the costs are going up. 

It’s no wonder that people are struggling now. Their salaries can’t keep up with inflation.

They’re working their way, dealing with corporate politics, just to get a 5 to 15% raise.

That’s not even enough if you look at the rate of increase of things and it will only get worse. 

This is only the economic aspect. I haven’t even mentioned the actual problem.

2: No One Is Safe From Unemployment

If inflation is not enough reason for me to convince you, what about unemployment?

People are getting fired left and right, proving how unstable having a job really is. 

That stable job that you thought was going to be there forever can just vanish overnight.

The government can literally decide on a new set of rules and regulations that could get your company in trouble.

You could wake up one morning having a stable job and wake up the next day with essentially nothing.

Or maybe with a limited temporary paycheck from the government if you’re lucky enough to be in a country that offers that.

But what if you have built-up an online income or whatever kind of income for yourself?

3: You Have No Time

The actual problem with having a job is that you have no time. 

Your job takes most of your time and the best part of your energy. So you have no more willpower, motivation, or inspiration left to start your own business and try to escape the trap. 

This is why they call it the rat race or the rat trap. It’s not that it’s anyone’s fault and it’s not necessarily a bad thing for most people.

But I would say that for a large percentage of people, it’s an avoidable trap if you know how to escape it. 


Most jobs require you to work for 40 or 50 hours a week and that doesn’t include the time it takes you to get there, whether by car or public transportation. 

And let’s not forget the time it takes you to get ready like ironing your uniform. 

Ultimately, you spend the best ten hours a day, Mondays to Fridays, working for someone else. Outside of that, there’s very little time left to play with. 

It’s hard to start your own business and how can you escape that if you have no other means of earning?

There are several ways you could go with this. 

 what to do when you hate your job and you can't quit

How To Escape The 9 To 5

Option 1: Making Time Outside Of Job Hours

You could go the route of working outside of the job hours. 

Let’s say you start work at nine, so could wake up at around 6 and put an hour or two into doing something for the business you want to create before you get ready for the day. 

That’s option one and I’ll explain in another article exactly what you can do during that time to build up an income.

Option 2: Reduce Your Working Hours

Another option is to try to reduce the hours you’re working. So if you’re working ten hours a day, Monday to Friday, try to negotiate to work only 4 days a week.

On the 5th day, you put all your focus and energy into building your own passive income. As your side income increases, try to negotiate working lesser days until your side hustle can be your main one. 

Working part-time means that you would still have a regular income to cover basic expenses as you ride out the waves of the storm.

Because building your business isn’t always gonna be smooth sailing. There will be some months when you earn nothing and some months where you earn pretty good. 

So you need to be prepared for both scenarios and the best way to do that is either by having savings or having a part-time job.

So those are the options that you have.

Benefits Of Having A Passive Income

1: You Can Do Whatever You Want With Your Time

You can now go and do whatever you want with your time. If you want to scale it, you can pay for more ads, create more content to draw more people in or create another course about a different topic.

At this point, you have all of your time and you can decide what to do with it. 

2: Your Expenses Are Low

Another benefit of having a passive income is that your costs are low because you don’t need to rent an office, you don’t need a car, and you don’t need to hire anyone if you don’t want to. 

That’s just using the example of a plumber but you can apply this to anything that has value.

You can make money online from literally anything, any hobby you have.

You can make content on how to cook better or how to raise your confidence.

There are people who make millions of dollars just writing reviews about kayaks or toys.

What I’m trying to say here is that if you have an opportunity to turn your passions and knowledge into an automated online business, do it.

As soon as you’ve done that, the hard part is over and it’s really now just a case of finding people to buy that course, and there are a lot of easy ways of doing that as well.


How Can I Make Money Outside Of My Job?

Nowadays, the best way to make money is through online means because online, you can automate things and you can create a passive income.

You don’t need to spend anything. The hard part is setting the system up but once you get the ball rolling, your business can move on its own. 

You can just add things onto it, let it grow, or set up another stream. You can decide your own hours, your own pay, outsource people, and where to spend money.

In most jobs, you’re trading your time for money instead of trading your value for money.

I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. What I’m saying is that, mathematically, you are limited because there are only so many hours in a day. 

Even if you worked 24 hours every day and you didn’t need sleep or food, you would still be limited to the number of hours there are. 

Selling time for money is never a good idea.

How Can I Turn My Passion Into A Business?

There are so many ways to turn your passion into a business. Some of the best ways are writing a book and having a membership website where people can access all your teaching resources. 

Let’s say that you’re a plumber. What’s better than that would be to own a plumbing business.

You can start small until you can hire more people. Instead of spending your time doing the plumbing work, you’re going to spend your time growing the plumbing business.

In this case, you’re going to be earning more and having more free time. One step above that would be to go digital. Let’s use the example of plumbing and turn that into a digital business. 

Let’s say you know a lot about plumbing and you film yourself talking about plumbing. What we’re gonna call that is a video course. 

Once you’ve set that up, you can sell that for the rest of your life and you don’t even have to be involved in that process. That’s what we call a ‘passive income.’

When Is The Best Time To Leave A Job?

You should leave a job when you feel like it’s hurting your mental health and you already have another source of income lined up.

So you won’t be saying things like: “I regret quitting my job!”

Why You Should Quit Your Job In 2022

More and more people are quitting their jobs so why aren’t you?

There are so many reasons why you should quit your job and stop relying on your 9 to 5.

Your salary barely moves as the prices of commodities go up, there’s the constant anxiety that you could get fired at any time, and you spend most of your time working for someone else.

Why settle for these when you can have a side hustle that can eventually become your passive income?

What if you have built-up an online business that grants you your financial freedom?

You would have more time to do whatever you want while keeping your costs low because you won’t need a space to rent or hire people.

If it’s 2022 and you’re still reliant on one job and one income, you should start doing things differently.

Trading your time for money is not a very good idea especially when it’s now so easy to build your own income, or at least start building your own income.

If you want to know more about yourself, I recommend taking this free numerology reading.

Now you’ve learned why you should quit your job in 2022. What business are you gonna try out?
