5 Career Change Myths Debunked

Are you thinking about changing careers but youโ€™ve convinced yourself that it wonโ€™t work?

Iโ€™m here to throw away all of those negative thoughts and myths that are standing in the way of your happiness.

Keep reading to see the MYTHS and REALITY surrounding career changes!


โŒMyth 1: ๐™”๐™ค๐™ช ๐™ข๐™ช๐™จ๐™ฉ ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ง๐™ฉ ๐™›๐™ง๐™ค๐™ข ๐™จ๐™˜๐™ง๐™–๐™ฉ๐™˜๐™

You donโ€™t have to start from scratch! Take a look at your skills and experience and determine what can be transferred into your new career. Of course, there might be gaps, but these can be filled with coursework, certifications, and or on-the-job training.

โŒMyth 2: ๐™”๐™ค๐™ช ๐™˜๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ฃ๐™ค๐™ฉ ๐™–๐™›๐™›๐™ค๐™ง๐™™ ๐™ž๐™ฉ

Nope! Not true! Start saving now + create a budget. If this really something you want to do, you will be ready to make the necessary sacrifices to go after your dreams.

โŒMyth 3:๐™”๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™›๐™–๐™ข๐™ž๐™ก๐™ฎ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™›๐™ง๐™ž๐™š๐™ฃ๐™™๐™จ ๐™ฃ๐™š๐™š๐™™ ๐™ฉ๐™ค ๐™จ๐™ช๐™ฅ๐™ฅ๐™ค๐™ง๐™ฉ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช

Having the support of family and friends is nice, but not having their support doesnโ€™t mean you canโ€™t achieve your goals. If you arenโ€™t feeling supported in achieving your goals: Focus on your why + envision your life 5 or 10 years from now. Let that be your inspiration to stay focused on your goals!

โŒMyth 4: ๐™”๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™˜๐™ช๐™ง๐™ง๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ ๐™ฃ๐™š๐™ฉ๐™ฌ๐™ค๐™ง๐™  ๐™ž๐™จ ๐™ช๐™จ๐™š๐™ก๐™š๐™จ๐™จ

Your current network is a value resource! I always say: you never know who knows someone. Sending a quick message to inform people in your network of your plans can open doors to opportunities you wouldnโ€™t have been able to access otherwise!

โŒMyth 5: ๐™Ž๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™˜๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™˜๐™–๐™ง๐™š๐™š๐™ง๐™จ ๐™ข๐™š๐™–๐™ฃ๐™จ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ชโ€™๐™ง๐™š ๐™– ๐™›๐™–๐™ž๐™ก๐™ช๐™ง๐™š

NO! This is FAR from the truth. Switching careers means that you are committed to your success. Going after a career that aligns with your passion and skills leads to a happier and more productive life!

You deserve to have a rewarding and fulfilling career!
