Your job can no longer challenge or satisfy you. The Salary, lack of appreciation, or missed promotions begin to bother you more than usual and then you realize that you are no longer the person who came into this job. That’s when you really need to do something about it, to remain true to who you are.


Challenges of change are intimidating at times, therefore in most cases your fear is valid. However if you want to reinvent your life and career change  you need to face your fear head-on. Fear or challenges of change should not deter you from taking a liberating path. Make it your ally, to keep you ‘sober’ in making that life-changing decision.


Fear happens to most of us. Your brain screams at you that it could be a mistake. Your partner and best friend tell you the same thing.  Your colleague tells you the sad tale of a friend of a friend who failed dismally when they tried to make a career change. 


It gets you worried. Don’t let that deter you! 


If you are unhappy with your work life, and change is what you need, the most empowering action is to reinvent yourself using your skills and experience and make a smooth transition to another career. It is a difficult decision to make, but you need to take this step if you want to live the rest your working life with meaning, and with a sense of fulfillment.
