Are you thinking about changing careers but you’ve convinced yourself that it won’t work?
I’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!
❌Myth 1: 𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙢𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙩 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙨𝙘𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝
You don’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.
❌Myth 2: 𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙖𝙣𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙖𝙛𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙙 𝙞𝙩
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.
❌Myth 3:𝙔𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙨 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪
Having the support of family and friends is nice, but not having their support doesn’t mean you can’t achieve your goals. If you aren’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!
❌Myth 4: 𝙔𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙘𝙪𝙧𝙧𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙣𝙚𝙩𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠 𝙞𝙨 𝙪𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨
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 wouldn’t have been able to access otherwise!
❌Myth 5: 𝙎𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙘𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙢𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪’𝙧𝙚 𝙖 𝙛𝙖𝙞𝙡𝙪𝙧𝙚
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!
