Nine times out of 10 the thing that is holding you back in your career leap is fear. Here’s how it usually sounds:
ME: “You seem to have an idea about what to do. So why don’t you do it?”
What I spend my time doing as a career coach is exploring it. What’s causing the fear? What’s at the root? What’s the next step to overcome it?
Fear is normal. The goal isn’t to ignore it. The goal is to acknowledge it and do what you want to do anyway.
There are few decisions, especially related to career (and especially in a strong economy), that are irreversible. For too long we’ve believed that if we jump from where we’re at there may be nothing better.
If you stay on the dock, you’ll never know. So fight fear and jump. If you don’t like where you land, jump again. And keep jumping until you land where the world needs you most.
