The first thing that you should is to sit quietly and try to assess what you want from your life. Crying over the thing that you do not have won’t help. You should try to figure out the type of job that wants to do. If you feel like this job is not providing you with enough opportunity then you should look for the alternative jobs.
Try to point out your strength and weakness and look for the job that you love. The size of the job or money is irrelevant compared to you liking your job.

If the company truly values you then they will surely consider your demands but if not then you should not work in a company that does not value your contribution. Do not wait until you realize you have spent more than half of your life in a job that you are planning to quit.
5. How important money is to you
Another important aspect about deciding to shift your career is how much impotence do you give to money? If you are afraid of perusing a new career just because you think that you would not make enough money to live comfortably, consider whether it is worth perusing a job to live happily.
Try to find a job that makes you happy not that which gives you more money. We often ignore happiness in the case of more money and later end up regretting that.

It is wise to go for more the job that you want to do not what others want to get done from you.
So, get out there, face the world and try to live in your world rather than one that others want you to live in.
