Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home… it’s your responsibility to love it, or change it – Chuck Palahniuk
Change is a good thing–sometimes. It takes courage to step outside of your comfort zone and follow your dreams wherever they take you. You will have the naysayers and doubters on the side lines giving you all sorts of reasons why change isn’t good but it’s up to you if you will let them discourage you. Make sure you are doing it for the right reasons and not because you feel pressured or want to prove something. If you believe that it’s time for a change, do it. Don’t allow fear, doubt or what other people say to stop you.
You will know if the change you are making is the right one. There will be a sense of peace and purpose. One of my co-workers decided to pack up, leave Toronto and move to Omaha to be with her boyfriend. She had no reservations because she believed that she was doing what was best for her.
If it’s a career change you are thinking of making, figure out what you want to do before you quit your job. You can enroll in night school courses. Once you have found a job in your new career, you can quit your current one and pat yourself on the back for taking a leap of faith.
