Change is not easy
A once-loved career is no longer stimulating or providing the once loved job satisfaction.
Feeling an increased sense of apprehension, about a mid-career crisis and how you are spending your work life? So many people remain in jobs that they dislike for more years than they care to consider.
A once-loved career is no longer stimulating or providing the once loved job satisfaction. Is your inner voice asking you, “Is this all there is?” Exploring the idea of looking for another career seems daunting and fills you with fear. Fear not, you can do something positive about your situation.
Do you have a growing sense that you would be better off doing something else? Do you find going to work every morning ghastly? If this is how you are feeling, then it is time to create a mid-career crisis.
Think about the mid-career crisis as a good thing; there is nothing wrong with a mid-career crisis; it will either spur you into action or leave you feeling ashamed that you now are having one.
Don’t feel ashamed about your mid-career crisis, people hop from job to job, career to career. Job hopping can be rewarded in some organisations. Remaining in one position too long can be a sign of complacency.
Use your mid-career crisis as a stepping stone to acquiring another job; use it as an opportunity to look for the job you want which; in turn, will create the life that you want.
Change is not easy, doing things in a particular way, is what you have been used to doing. You are about to revolutionise all that you do, stay strong. Changing your career for pastures new can feel like a frightening and irrational decision. The process of acquiring new skills can be very daunting when you have bills to pay. Nevertheless trust in yourself, even if you feel hesitant.
Starting the process
Outline a clear plan of action which will help you along the way. Planning is the key to going about changing your career. You will be able to progress without looking back and, with every step forward you will gain oodles of confidence.
Decision making can be a tiring process, try and make the transition as smooth as possible. Remember that you are not the first person who is doing such a change nor will you be the last person. Carefully consider the pros and cons of every decision made. Any decision made in haste may cost you a great deal of time to come.
Making informed decisions will enable you to further your career. When making the transition from one job to another, it is advised not to drag the change out for too long.
It is a good thing to show loyalty to your previous company but not at the risk of it ruining your reputation at the new company. A quick transition enables you to look ahead and concentrate on your future rather than on your past.
The only thing constant in life is change, so be prepared to make tough decisions; decisions made will pay off in the long run. Never be afraid of having a mid-career crisis because it is essential to know that you control your future and, changes made will only endeavour to enrich your financial situation for the better.
