Bet on Yourself, Professionally

Don’t be fearful of new opportunities that knock you out of your “comfort zone”. In this market climate where technology driven changes ultimately affect almost every industry directly or indirectly, you must step out on faith and BET ON YOURSELF!

Long gone are the days where people remain employed to the same company for 20, 30 or even 40 years….so believing in yourself, knowledge, skills and abilities may end up leading to unexpected opportunities for growth and working independently.

Be bold enough to step out on your own before it becomes a necessity versus a choice. You may end up venturing into entrepreneurship, sales or consulting based on what is going on in your industry.

Are you working towards career goals or the career your parents though was great?

Time and time again I have heard friends and co-workers talk about how they ended up going into medicine, becoming an attorney or taking over the family business all stemming from the voices of parents, relatives and friends that mean well. The only problem…YOU’RE MISERABLE! Let that sink in for a moment.

I can personally attest to this fact in my own career journey. I may have mentioned in previous podcasts or video episodes that I started my college career right out of high school in the physical therapy program. My mother thought physical therapy was a great career path and as an obedient high school graduate who had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I only knew at the time, that I wanted to help people in some way, just the how, where and in what capacity was not so clear to me at the time. I just went with my mother’s plan until I started in core science classes and laboratory work.

I discovered in those classes how much I hated working with body parts and being exposed to bodily fluids on a regular basis. I like learning about the body from a scientific perspective but touching dead frogs, cats, possums and other dead creatures gross me out. I eventually changed by major to business administration with the concentration in human resources.

This experience taught me to NEVER do something because someone else wants you to do but do it for yourself. If you’re going to work hard on a career path, at least do something that gives you some satisfaction, outside of just getting paid due to family demands. If you are looking to make your career transition and don’t know where to start, go here.

You can grab your FREE DREAM Career Guide to start your career transition process and not have to suffer through stinky frogs in college to figure out your ideal career path.
