Choosing a career is hard and it's probably one of the most important
decisions you'll ever make. It's estimated that over 38% of all the
working professionals (aged between 20-30 years) did not choose their
When all is said and done, and you find yourself having a career in something that you don't love, you have two choices: either you decide to leave things as they are and suffer the crushing feeling of defeat or you go for a career transition.
Don't be alarmed, anyone who thinks they've made a wrong decision in choosing a profession they don't love is faced with the same dilemma.
It's fair to say that most of us will go through a career transition at some point in our lives, sometimes that choice is ours, other times it's not. That's just the way the life is.
There's always a feeling of ambiguity when switching careers, which makes the decision seem very complex. However, it's not as daunting a task as you may be imagining and for whatever reason, you may reaching the wrong conclusions.
The Earth is not going to stop spinning, the Sun will still rise in the morning and things are not as bad as you're thinking. Take a step back and ask yourself some questions.
What's the absolute worst case scenario? Define it, try to visualize it in all it's grim details; do you really believe you'll let it get to that point?
Can you think of a few ways you can get things back under control? You'll find that you usually can. Get rid of the negativity, it's getting in the way.
If you can think of a way to achieve a positive outcome, can you imagine what the benefits may be to you?
If you can have things just the way you imagine them to be, what does that do for you?
When is a good time to start?
Whatever your answers to these questions are, don’t fret anymore. It’s not that hard once you get going, just have the courage to take the first step and things are bound to get easier.
Many people have sought career coaching as an effective way to figure out what they really want.
Career coaching involves the support of a skilled professional who will guide you through your transition, therefore improving your skills and allowing you to make the best choice for you.
Feeling happy with what you do in your life is not only a question of choosing the right career, it's about discovering your unique qualities as a human being and learning how to apply them consistently in your daily life.
A career coach can help you identify, visualize and leverage your strengths to move up the ladder of success. In my book, career transition coaching is worth a king’s ransom if it's going to allow you to see things in a different light.
