Career Change By Not Playing Small

Are you at a crossroads in your life? Have you been intending to make some drastic changes to your work environment but somehow life got in the way? The time to make use of the opportunities out there is right here, right now.  Everything you have done until this point will help you to achieve your dreams.  It’s not important who you were before but who you are now and what you will decide to become.  All that matters is the present.

So what decisions will you make regarding your career change?  Whatever they are, let them be conscious, carefully thought through and powerful. Stand up to your fears and negative beliefs about yourself, identify them and get help to eliminate them.  It can be done and is being achieved by many people every day.  Who are you to act small when the world needs your brilliance?

Marianne Williamson says,

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world….”

One of the common reasons why someone does not do work they love is they allow fears to rule their life. Many people have fears about themselves and ask, “Am I good enough?” Other common fears around careers are:

  • I am lousy at interviews
  • I will never get that job
  • I don’t have enough confidence
  • I have had no practice at interviews and will be terrified
  • I will forget everything when put on the spot
  • I can’t ask for the salary I want
  • How do I find what I love to do?

Get a coach to help you address all the above fears and more, reframe them and move forward in your life. They can then assist you in setting goals for your life, your career and other areas that are a priority for you.

Another reason for not achieving the life of your dreams is the reluctance to take risks.

However, as Tony Robbins says,

“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten”.

When you take action, even if it’s taking small steps, since you’re heading in the right direction you have more chance of arriving at your career goal than if you do nothing.  Don’t let proscrastination hold you back from fulfilling your life’s ambitions.  If you plan for the risk, take consistent steps and ensure you have a backup plan, the risk will not seem so huge. Take a leap and make your choice at the crossroads of your life.
