Where to Start with a Career Change

Pain is a huge motivator. When we're comfy, cozy we stay exactly where we are.

When we're in a lot of discomfort, that's when things get going.

Pain is painful but it does have a purpose.

It alerts us that something is wrong and we need to pay attention.

Physical pain in the body means see a doctor and get healthy.

Emotional or intellectual pain at work means get a new job!

Many of you will just plug and play one job for another.

Some of you will decide to shake things up with a bold career change.

The ultimate benefit of pain is the willingness and energy to change.

A career change requires more of you than a shiny new resume.

You'll be in need of:

Delving into your emotional intelligence

Understanding of your self worth

Doing lots of soul searching

Having a thorough assessment

Leaving your comfort zone

And much more.

You see, career change really is about the journey as much as the destination.
