Do you find yourself dwelling on the prospect of change? Change in your life, what you stand for, what you are doing, where you are heading and the kind of role that will sustain and enrich your life instead of draining it?
Have you been stalling and vacillating on taking the first steps because it seems impossible, or overwhelming, or maybe because you simply don’t know how to make the necessary changes to get yourself on the right path?
The reason so many people stay in unfulfilling lives and de-motivating jobs is that it’s easy. It’s familiar, it takes minimal effort, it’s easy to blank out and go through the motions of your ‘ok’ life, and a job that pays the bills.
Living all the way, in all you do on the other hand leaves you highly energized and open to all manner of new possibilities, and possibilities are like snowballs, when the momentum takes hold they come at you thick and fast – you just need to create that momentum!
People often make the mistake of thinking that because circumstances placed you somewhere that was where you were MEANT to be. However that is not always the case and we all need to learn to set the bar higher for ourselves – both in the lives we lead and the role choices we make. Setting the bar higher for myself I learned that jumping into new, and sometimes-uncomfortable situations was worth the risk – personally and professionally.
However before I could take my leaps of faith I needed to learn how to silence my inner critic, to understand what really motivated me (v’s what I had been taught SHOULD motivate me), to listen to, and act on, my true beliefs and to trust in myself.
In short, I learned to take control of what was holding me back and use that knowledge to get out of my own comfort zone and challenge myself to create the kind of life and role that inspires me to not just show up but to be the best version of myself each and every day.
So how do you get started on the journey of change?
The first step is to partner yourself with a company such as TaylorCare Recruitment who will help you create the necessary plan, support you through the journey and that is where the value of an experienced and ethical recruitment company is priceless!
Change is tough, there is no doubt about that and sometimes the best-laid plans can go awry as you battle it out on your own, leading to a longer than necessary transition and greater than necessary pain. As with all things in life, the right tools and resources for the job at hand are key to getting the results you want.
The point is to take the first steps towards positive action and then to continue to take step after step until you have arrived at your new future!
