And the #1 reason you haven’t changed careers yet is…

Fear is the #1 thing that is keeping you from your Happy Mondays

Dear Friend,

Many people dream of More Happy Mondays, but something keeps them stuck in the same job, doing the same work, unhappy and unfulfilled.

So what is the biggest reason people stay? Fear.

We fear losing our routines and stability. We fear not knowing when our next pay cheque is coming. We fear making another career mistake.

And most importantly: we fear failure.

Embarking on a career transition can make us feel vulnerable, which can make us focus on everything we have to lose.

But what happens when we focus on all we have to gain?

We get excited! We feel hopeful! And we feel confident!

So this week let’s look at how fear can hold us back, and how refocusing on the positive can energize you as you transition to a career that truly fits!
