It’s very common in today’s society to reach a plateau in your career and feel the need to refresh or relaunch yourself into something new and exciting. It seems like everyone is doing it these days!!
Whether you’ve been in a corporate career for years and wanting a change, or now have children and your priorities have changed, it’s never too late to start afresh and explore shiny new options.
I often have people ask my thoughts on changing careers after investing so many years in study and working within a particular field. Personally, I think it’s great to refresh and realign. It’s important that you’re happy and fulfilled in both your work and your lifestyle. Considering so much time is spent at work, your job needs to lift you up and excite you in addition to generating an income.
Re-evaluating your options can also feel quite confronting. Stepping out of your comfort zone and setting new goals is similar to ‘starting again’. While this is the case, knowing that you can be whatever you want to be creates the excitement and determination needed to make your dream a reality.
Choosing a career that lights you up and aligns with your core beliefs and passions – that’s where the magic is.
