Do you go to work each day knowing you rather be doing something else for a living? Do you know what your dream career is?
What you need to do is something different than you have done before to move yourself out of this place of “stuckness”. Easy for me to say, right? I get it. I have been there too. I spent hundreds of days, literally, in my office feeling the pain of knowing that there was this other thing that I wanted so desperately to do, but I didn’t have the foggiest idea of how to get there.
On top of that, I was terrified of taking that first step. I had so many reasons, and at the time, I believed, good reasons, for not taking action. I believed the first step had all sorts of implications; like I would have to leave my job, my financial security would be at jeopardy, that I was too old to start something new. You get it. All these thoughts seemed logical at the time, but they weren’t serving my highest good.
What I learned and what I teach my clients is that the best remedy for this situation is to start. Just do one thing differently today to get yourself on your way. ‘One thing differently’ has a cascading effect on your life. It puts you on the path of positive change.
Unfortunately, not acting can become a pattern, one that becomes safe and comfy. Safe because we can come to enjoy the yearning. Yearning for a new career is easier than making it happen. This is how we become stuck: wanting something but not taking action to make it happen.
