When you can’t see the next step in your career

We humans crave certainty and dread change.

Most of us would do anything to avoid making the changes we need, even when we recognise that they are necessary and beneficial.

It’s like we’re at war with ourselves: we know the facts, the stats, the reasons to do something new, but the thought of leaving the safety and comfort of what we know is just too overwhelming and confronting.

What if we make the wrong decision?

What if we lose money, lose our job, get scammed?

What if we try something and it doesn’t work out?

What would they think of us?

How does this apply when making career decisions?

If you’re over 40 and seeking a new professional path that is more fulfilling than the one you’ve been on for the past 15 years, but will also require you to invest into a new course of study with no guarantee that you will get a job on graduating…

If the children have left the nest and you are feeling a bit shell-shocked by a sense of loss and confused about who you are now they don’t need you…

If you’ve uprooted to a new country and been out of the workforce raising a family, and now find your qualifications unrecognised and your past experience not good enough to get you a decent-paying job…

These are common wake-up calls that inspire my clients to embark on the adventure of Midlife Change.

The good news: you don’t have to make the journey alone.

Help is here: a listening ear, wise counsel, someone to believe in you and hold your hand while you get ready to fly, and most importantly, compassion and non-judgment, something of priceless value in a world of good intentions from those closest to us who do not understand why we are discontented with what we have.
