Why change career?

Thinking about changing career but don’t know where to start? Working out the reason behind the way you feel will give you some clues. So here are some questions to give you clarity.


Do you want to leave your current job because you are bored or have outgrown your work?

If you have outgrown the work you do and have no interest in career advancement in your field then it’s time to look for something that interests you now. We all have different interests at certain stages of our life, and we grow in different directions, so take a look at your current interests. Is there something that you could turn into a career or start working freelance?

In a negative cycle

Do you feel that you’re passed over for promotion or no matter how many jobs you have changed the same happens? Do you feel undervalued and insignificant? Like you have no say or control?

This is because of patterns originating from childhood. We repeat these patterns that create similar feelings as we had as children or when we were younger. Our inner beliefs about ourselves cause us to attract outside situations that keep us in the same negative place. The good news is that we can do inner work to clear these and start creating new, positive patterns. When we change how we feel inside, situations around us change to match that.

You don’t belong

Do you feel you don’t belong in the environment you work in or don’t like the people you work with?

Again, toxic environments are tolerated because of inner beliefs that cause us to think that this is our only option, or it is a familiar environment to us because of our past.

You’re not fulfilled

Do you feel that you’re good at your job but you don’t find meaning and purpose in what you’re doing?

Although at the beginning of your career you might have been excited maybe working in a fast-paced environment that you thought was the right way to go, you now feel flat and unfulfilled. This is the time when you start looking for something more meaningful that includes service to others. You might have been told that meaningful work is not as lucrative, but you haven’t tested this out to see if it is true for you.
