Follow your passion
I speak to people all the time, where they discuss what they love, as part of breaking the ice in talking to me.
And then we begin to talk about their job issues, and everything changes. The mood shift is instantly apparent — I know where their passion lies, and it is not in their jobs. — Their jobs cause pain.
The tone-swing during the conversation is often dramatic. I have been watching this for many years.
They want to be doing something else.
Changing careers will have very serious repercussions — There are often many costs, and often much time, and usually much uncertainty. For me, the career change to my preference took years, and cost about $100,000 in loans for school. And then I had to start my solo practice with nothing. See my bio, linked at the top of every page, for more info about my own journey.
Changing careers, or working for yourself, will commonly plunge your income.
I came from nothing, so it is easy for me to say this —> It is ok to live with less, while you build yourself the career you really want. In the end, you will likely be happier.
But do not quit your job without a plan!
You must commit to the change — Did I say “commit”? — I meant COMMIT.
