Life can be uncertain sometimes. One moment you thought you’re living the life you wanted, and then suddenly you realized that there are greener pastures waiting on the other side.
Shifting careers in life is perfectly fine. But what’s stopping us is our mindset of taking or not to take the leap of faith when doing so. That’s why a lot of us are buried in a path we regret taking.
Testing the Waters
Knowing what career, you want to take is all about trial and error. You may be confident in this specific road but how about the other side? Is it also worth walking too? That’s why testing the waters is important to know what you really want to pursue.
It’s going to be a difficult journey, there’s no denying that fact. That’s why you have to be prepared to face what lies beyond the end of the road. A good example is finding the right job for you.
There are graduates out there that are forced to be in a position of a job that they don’t want to be in. More often than not, this is because of the “this is fine” mindset. Where having a job even if it’s not suited for you is okay as long as you are earning.
But the real question is, ‘are you happy?’ Is this really the life you want to live or you were just forced because you have no other choice? So, don’t be afraid to jump in and out to different opportunities to find what’s best for you.
Motivating Yourself is Key
Sometimes, all you need is just a little push to pursue what you want to become in life. That’s why having the courage to explore what you truly want to do will take you to greater heights. An example would be self-publishing author and podcaster Benjamin Goodly.
Once a former professional dancer, Benjamin has gone through ups and downs in transitioning careers. And now that he is a successful chemical engineer and self-publishing author, Benjamin proved that getting to a life you wanted to live is achievable.
“To what extent do you need to be fully committed to one thing?” – Benjamin Goodly
So, don’t worry that you are currently stuck in a career that you are forced to be in. Instead, use this as your motivation to pursue the right one that is suited just for you. It’s going to be one hell of a climb. But as long as you don’t give up, then you will get there!
“Getting to a place where you realize that your career is not giving you the quality of life that you want is a really powerful motivator.” – Benjamin Goodly
Everything Will Fall into Place
Shifting careers in the world of business is an experience where you will face discouragements. But that doesn’t mean that you have to give up and just stand on the same ground even if you don’t want to.
So, time to change gears and head to the destination where you want yourself to be in. Being in the driver’s seat of your own career is an exciting feeling you don’t want to miss. Don’t you just love earning while being in control of your business at the same time?
All you need is to trust your progress no matter how fast and slow it can be. Transitioning careers is not a race. So, take your time to build yourself up and you will eventually get into a business that you are yearning for. One day, you will look back from where you came from. And you will finally give yourself a pat on the back for taking the leap of faith.
