There are lots of people who will freely offer all kinds of career advice—parents, teachers, colleagues, career coaches, and counselors. But when it comes down to it, the best person to listen to may be staring straight at you in the mirror.
Nagging feelings, loss of meaning and direction, and a diminished sense of vitality and purpose are often indicators that a change in your life may be needed.
If you are facing a career choice dilemma and you are experiencing some self-doubt about your current career, perhaps it is time to try something new. Maybe you are not sure that you are in the right job. Perhaps you are working too much for too little pay. Or your work schedule is not allowing you to spend enough quality time with your family. It could be that you feel you're simply not living up to your true potential. There are many possible reasons. And when they pile up, you might experience a realization that you need to take action.
Many people, however, remain complacent despite their unhappiness and continue to just plod along without making any changes.
If you want to feel empowered to make a change, here are some suggestions that might help:
Be aware of which kinds of people and environments help you flourish and which make you wilt. Acknowledge your concerns. Make a list of pros and cons about your situation. Understand exactly where you are and how you got there.
Let your values be your guide and don't second-guess yourself or back down from challenges. Identify your most important concern. Find a solution. Start addressing all other concerns both positive and negative (pros or cons) in the same way.
Assess your skills and talents. Start exploring different outcomes that might be better alternatives for you. Figure out ways to get to your goal. And surround yourself with people that help boost your confidence.
Explore your options. A change in your professional identity can require furthering your education and gaining new work experience. Gain the experience you need to reach your career goal. This might be as a paid professional, a volunteer, a consultant or an intern. Find out what college courses could help you reach your career goals. Perhaps you have work experience that will even gain you college credit!
Making a new career decision is an opportunity to reflect, assess your values, gather your strength, and show your capabilities.
