“Everything I’ve ever let go of has claw marks on it.” – David Foster Wallace
It can be hard to let go. Of things, people, ideas. Old concepts about who you are and what your place in the world is. Of a career path that you don’t love, but one that feels safe and familiar.
People who have a hard time letting go are often those who thought that if they followed the rules, they’d be happy. Get a good job. Have a good life. But when following the rules doesn’t work out as planned and the job is creating more problems than it’s worth, it’s really scary.
It can be hard to change, to be willing to let go of that old identity. The fear of uncertainty causes people to hold on to what’s familiar, because they don’t know where to go next. So they remain “safe”…and stagnant. Time passes. Nothing changes.
The discomfort can be mentally consuming.
The desire for something better can be pervasive.
But our claws are latched on.
The harder we pull, the more stuck we get.
We don’t know how to unhook ourselves.
That’s where career clarity coaching comes in. With our help, you can get unhooked, out of an ill-fitting career, and onto a career path that is better for you.
You don’t have to do this alone. Your knowledge that something is off and your desire for a better path are the signals that it’s time to bring in help to support you in achieving your goals.
Through our signature coaching programs, our clients learn to understand their unique talents and passions, identify potential career paths, and get into the driver’s seat of their careers, forging a path towards a life that’s truly in alignment with their values and priorities.
If the career identity you’ve been holding onto so tightly is clearly no longer a fit, put in an application to work with us here. When you signal to the universe that you’re willing to let go (even if you don’t totally know where you’re going next) you create an opening for better to come in.
