Hate your job but scared to change it?
Firstly, well done for admitting fear. The first stop to solving something is admitting it's happening. That can be very scary, so take comfort from the fact that you've now you’ve done a courageous thing -- and you are still here, still breathing, still surviving, still going on.
Maybe you're wondering whether to stick in your current job, or whether to go for something new, and possibly worrying about an additional investment of time and money in re-training for a new career. These are all great things to think about...just don't stay stuck in wondering and worrying.
No careers professional can tell you what's the right decision for you - only you can discover that. However a careers professional can help you deal with the fear and move forward, untangle your thoughts and feelings about career changeand take some do-able steps towards a happy career for you.
Here are some questions that will help
You might want to do them with a supportive friend, on your own in a quiet place (not work or home), or discover your answers and your next career steps with a careers professional like me:
1) What have you learned from your career and study decisions so far? (The ones that worked out and the ones that didn't)
2) How can that inform what you do next?
3) What's your No.1 fear about taking your next career step?
4) What are some things you can do to reduce or remove the fear?
5) Finally, what reward will you give yourself for taking one step?
