HOW TO AVOID GETTING AFFECTED BY CHANGE OF JOBS?
A male follower asked like this:

However that turned out to be a nightmare and has lead me to slip into depression I am trying level best to get back to old job workplace and side by side trying other options Being faithful and devoted to Krishna ji , I am facing failures and I am unable to get out of this place which is depleting me ! I am praying regularly to Krishna ji for some miracle and magic that I get back my happiness I don’t desire heavy salary now ! I need peace of mind and happiness I never do anything bad to anyone and everyday I seek for forgiveness if in case I have ever hurt anyone unintentionally Please help me”
I myself have bitter experience in changing my job.
So, I always advise the boys and girls to think 100 times before changing their jobs.
Before I came to the devotional and counseling field, I was working in some companies.
First, I applied to a marketing job in a small pharma company. I had no money to send the application and photo. So, I sold my blood for Rs.40 (since mine is A+, I could not get good Price for blood. AB- is costly and the blood banks bought it for Rs.500 at that time, decades ago.)
By selling the blood, I applied to the first job.
I got the job and worked for 6 months.
Then, I got a big nationwide pharma company. So, I switched for a little more salary.
But, the new company was keeping increasing the targets every month beyond a limit even if I achieved whatever targets fixed by them.
So, I switched that company also and switched from marketing to the administration in another nationwide company.
I had decided that I should spend my career in that company for ever.
But, there was a villain in that company. There were two GMs there. Our group GM was showing very good production compared to the another GM. This caused jealousy in the mind of that GM. So, when our GM was on long leave, that another GM made a trick and called all the eight trainee officers including me who were about to be confirmed in the next 30 days.
He made a fake announcement that the company is going to terminate our services with that month and hence we will be safe if we ourselves find an alternative job for us instead of getting terminated.
Without knowing that it is a fake announcement, seven out of eight people in our group left the job and went for some other companies.
I started a new firm on my own because at that time, I was not in devotional practices and I was thinking of becoming rich by doing business.
This is where I committed a mistake. I started my own business by borrowing the required money that locked me with the loan and interest.
I struggled a lot to pay my dues and it cost my peace severely.
For about 8 years, I was struggling to clear my loans.
But, when I started to follow devotional way of life, I started to function with utmost responsibility and patience. With the blessing of the Lord, I could clear all my loans within two years and became free from loans.
Why these details?
My point is that we enter into the new phase of life every time we change our job. We will be trying for better jobs though the existing job is safe and steady.
This is a great risk because the new job may not be that much rewarding as expected.
If you have no remarkable issues in your existing job, you should not think of changing your job.
You may get 5-10% more salary in your new job
But, that new job may have some other problems.
So, it is always good to keep the heart stable without oscillation if you are comfortable in a job.
Now, in your case, you need not worry thinking of the happenings in the past.
Now, plan which field you like to settle in.
Then, select a good company in that field.
Plan well to get selected in the written tests and/or interviews.
Improve your required qualification to be eligible to get the job in that company.
Attend the selection tests and interviews well.
Get selected and join in that company and work with full dedication.
Be loyal to that company and do all your efforts and participation for the growth of that company.
Thereafter, do not think of switching to another company unless you have any problems in the present company.
Be satisfied with the present employment and perform very well to come up in this job very fast.
This will give you relief mentally and also financially.
Hope these tips help you.
All the best.
