Here are a few of the common thoughts people have when they’re considering making a career change.
Are any of these familiar to you? (Please share in the comments!)
“I’m too ___ to make a career change.”
“Changing careers means starting at the bottom.”
“No one will hire me.”
“I’m lucky to have the job I have.”
“Who am I to ask for more?”
“Work is just work.”
“I have no idea what I want to do anyway.”
“I have to be perfectly qualified for a new role before I can take it.”
“All workplaces are awful, so why bother changing?”
“I have to get this change exactly right.”
Our minds often put limits in front of us. When we believe those thoughts, it can be really difficult to move forward. When you’re alone with your mind, it’s much harder to catch on when this is happening.
This is one of the reasons it’s so helpful to work with a career coach. We have perspective and can identify when you’re closing options down in your mind. With this awareness, it becomes easier to question and move through the thoughts that are holding you back.
