I remember telling someone what I did as a career. They told me they wanted to change their career but its far too challenging. I hear this sort of comment and other comments like "Its too hard to change their career" " Or "its just not that easy" However is it really that challenging and if it is how can we break it down to make easier not harder. On general analysis a few key things can contribute to someone changing their career and sticking to this new path.
1. Attitude - If you have the right attitude your career change will be better for you. Being positive about your career change is important. The more positive you are the better your new journey will be.
2. Determination - Being determined about your career change "I will have a new career and must keep going". If its what you really want don't give up.
3. Perseverance - When we are persistent with something it tends to happen more. Whilst on your career change journey you may experience struggles with juggling lots of things. Its about sticking to your end road and despite the difficulties carrying on despite the challenges you face.
4. Realistic - Sometimes embarking on a career change requires time and if you have to study again this may mean being realistic about what you need to do.
These four components can help further your career change but more then that if you are determined to change you will. You have the power to do this. If you need support doing this people can always help.
Career change is a challenge its not meant to be easy. If you know its worth it, maybe its worth doing. Moliere says“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.” A career change is not meant to be easy but if you know it can make you happier, give you want you want and create a life you really crave then it should be worth it.
So is career change challenging yes it is, but most of the things we really to need work for are. So remember your end goal and stick to it.
