It depends on how you feel and how much you want to evolve in your position. Only you have those answers inside of you. If you struggle to find the answer perhaps seeking another opinion or a life coach can help you with the answers you seek.

Doing the same thing you don't like everyday it will get you on a dead point but if you're doing the thing you like everyday, means you overcome the man you used to be yesterday and preparing for the man you'll be tomorrow.

Of course. Sometimes people feel "defined" by their careers, and thus motivated to have a career that they find deeply fulfilling. That's perfectly okay. It's also okay to feel as if your career is just something you "do," and not who you are. Everyday you are presented with different situations, and you make different decisions based on those situations. You are learning and growing every single day.

If you find yourself in the same position with no open opportunities then no you are not. Try to aim for places or areas in your life that will help you get further and move up.

Absolutely! Just because you do the same job every day doesn't mean you have to do it the same way every day. When you look for ways to better your performance, quality of work, or introduce new ideas to your workplace then you're continually developing yourself as a person.

You can request to do things out of your job scope to learn more if you feel that you are not growing in anyway.

I look at evolving as continuing to learn. I may be doing the same job everyday, but am I learning something somewhere in my life? At my job, I tend to ask a lot of questions about learning more about my job. Seek out the potential to learn more skills or higher position responsibilities. That helps me some.

It really depends on whether the job brings you any enjoyment and how fulfilled you feel with the tasks at hand. Do you feel appreciated in your current position? Do you feel like you can achieve more, but are not given enough chances? Answers to these and other questions can help you feel more fulfilled and make the right choice towards hapiness.

Yes. You are getting better at it every time you do it. It can get discouraging when you think that doing the same thing every day won't help you in any way, but practice makes perfect. For example, a basketball player might be doing the same practice every day, but after a while of doing that practice, they will be so much better at what they do than when they first started. You sound discouraged, and it might also be that you just don't like the job that you are doing or maybe someone or something that is a part of the job. If that is the case, see if there is anything that you can do to take care of that.
