Change is scary! How to take that leap of faith.

Often, we feel like we don’t know direction we are heading in life. Most people feel this at some point. Especially in choosing career paths. The feeling can be overwhelming deciding what is right for us. We tend to stick to what might be easiest for the fear of change or even the thought of failure scares us away. What we should all keep in mind is that life is about growing and what we learn in between. It is all part of a process and it is okay not to know in that process. When it comes to choosing a career path here is some advice that will help you along in the right direction. 

Step outside of your comfort zone.

Don’t be afraid to go for different positions outside of what you are currently doing. You never know your full potential until you apply yourself. You also never know what opportunity will arise.  

Make your own opportunities.

If you do have a career goal you may need to create your own stepping stones to get there. Ask about opportunities with internships and free work for experience. 

Make changes if something isn’t working out don’t be afraid to move on.

You won’t find what you are looking for at a standstill. If there is a void in the career path that won’t change until you recognize that you need something more fulfilling in your life.  

At the end of the day we all are deciding what is right for us in career paths. Being afraid to fail won’t get you anywhere so go for it. Trying out different opportunities will help you decide what works best for you as well as what feels right.
