Changing Career is an Emotional Move

Making a career change or getting a promotion may seem as something that has to do with circumstances and your environment, but ultimately it has to do with how you feel.

You wish to leave your place of discomfort or misery and launch yourself into something new and exciting or a place that feels kind and nurturing because of how you think it will make you FEEL.

So, your change in career or position is a transition of feeling something negative like being mistreated, isolated, rejected, bored or unfulfilled to a brand new place of feeling significant, valued, respected, nurtured, free, super excited and having a sense of belonging. I mean, you wouldn’t make a change if you knew that you would feel the same or worse than you do now.

I know all this sounds obvious but stay with me.

If your emotions are the driving factor for anything you do, then doesn’t it make sense to examine them? Should you not start with your feelings about anything, before you make any decisions?

Here’s what I’m getting at. You want to get that promotion BUT deep inside you don’t feel you’re good enough. End result? Procrastination. You want to start your own business, BUT you fear that you will fail and will be worse off. What happens? You don’t start and make failure a dead cert.

All the information you need to get you there, whatever your goal is, is out there. We live in a world where readily available information is something we can rely on. Yet, you are still not moving.

This is because you haven’t examined what you FEEL and BELIEVE is possible for you.

When you align what you want to feel in your future career with what you believe is available to you and what you feel you are worthy of, then it becomes effortless. Because when you get to that point of knowing you are worthy of everything you want, you will just be following the advice you receive without your emotions blocking you and your path will be clear.

So, ask yourself, “Do I feel I’m good enough to achieve my goal?” “Is this something that is possible for me?” “Do I accept myself exactly where I am today, so I can feel worthy enough to work on myself?”
