Do you go to work with dread? Can you identify that feeling in the pit of your stomach? Chances are you wish you could be anywhere than at this job. If so, do not stay with the pain just because it’s familiar. Instead, gravitate toward a career change.
While change can be scary, it can also be fun to discover new and fresh things about you and your interests. Recall that sense of adventure you had as a child? Every day brought new and interesting things at that age. It is now time to take a look back at that child. Recapture that sense of awe when you saw a baby deer for the first time or a fly stuck on your lollipop. Apply that awe to each step of our career change process. Celebrate the small achievements along the way to reaching your goal of career satisfaction.
Many people feel that they just want a new job, any job, that will take them away from where they are. Please, don’t run away from something – run toward something better. Running away only invites new problems and disappointments. You don’t want to get stuck in another bad job again, do you? Attract positive, not negative, energy into your life. Get clear on who you are and exactly what you want to make you happy in all facets of your life! You can become who you want to be!
Wishing you career success in 2018!
