Life’s too short to get stuck in the wrong job. If you can relate to any of these signs, it’s time for a change.

Life is too short to spend it at a job that you hate. If you spot any of these tell-tale signs, then it might be time to look for a better job.

Sign #1 You dread going to work
This is not true in all cases, but if you dread going to work every day, then it might be time to reconsider your job choices. This can have a huge impact on your happiness in the long-term.

Sign #2 You’re too stressed
In some cases, there is nothing wrong with stress once in a while; it can help you to meet deadlines and accomplish things you never thought you could. However, when you are stressed out all the time without feeling any rewards for that stress, then it might be time to reconsider your job choices.

Sign #3 Complaining endlessly
It’s natural for most people to complain once in a while, but when you find yourself complaining about your job all the time, it’s a huge indicator that you’re in the wrong job. Endless complaints about your job, at the least, indicate that you are not enjoying your work.

Sign #4 You hate the company
It can be difficult to feel enthusiastic about a job when you hate the company. Hating the company can make it difficult to work because just like when you don't like learning something, you will be less enthusiastic about it.

Sign #5 Your job doesn't align with your long-term goals
It can be difficult to work at a job that does not align with your goals. If it is not setting you up for the path that you want to travel in life, then you might want to reconsider a job that will align with your long-term goals.

A wise man once said that if you love what you do, you'll have to work a day in your life. Working at the wrong job can drain you emotionally and mentally – and life is too short for that.
