The grass is always greener when you water it, or so they say. Sometimes the grass is much greener on the other side even if you water yours, theirs will always be greener and there is nothing wrong about admitting it to yourself. The world took a turn for the better yet life also took a turn to something more competitive and more challenging, so how do we respond to it when the salary or the job that we are working on is basically leading us nowhere.
Five years working on the same job which takes you where you actually started in the first place is not a career, it is actually a sanitized from for modern day corporate slavery, and that is not good for you or your family. Since the onset of globalization, people can easily go to other countries and work there so that they can finally see their grass getting greener and have a high-quality life for them and their families.
Here are some good reasons why one should opt to work in another country:
For others a job could become the quagmire for the development of their very own careers. Case for example, a teacher with a high paying job could actually work, partially happy with the salary, but at the same time is choked with tasks in teaching that they cannot actually work for a higher job ranking thus become trapped in the very career that they have dreamt of in the first place.
People who opt to work overseas can actually attain growth and development in their career especially moving in countries where work competency is highly valued and at the same time career development is greatly encouraged.
Not only do we crave for career development but we also crave for what comes with it and it is the salary. If we grow professionally and become competent and masters of our won field what usually happens in poor countries is that we actually take more work but we often take meagre salaries together with a heavy workload, and that is not a good thing.
Moving to other countries to for, for example going to work in Australia for 6 months as a person that comes from poor country actually raises the financial status of one’s family to be better for more than a year that than when one works in their home country. Although the struggles and hardship will always be there but with the same struggle but higher salary, a wise man would choose the later.
Better Work-Life Balance
What usually happens is that people actually earn more and with the higher quality of life is attained; workers actually have more time with family members than spending free time with moonlighting to cover for extra expenses at home. Especially with western countries a proper balance between work and personal life is actually observed strictly.
All in all, one should not only strive for jobs that burn the passion within but also strive for jobs that can pay the rent and one that can offer a bright future for the family.
