You know, there are two recurring themes in our careers…
Struggle and Progress.
I’m sure you’ve had your share of both, just like I have.
I’d like to remind you that it’s never easy for anyone, and to keep following your dream. No. Matter. What.
To Your Success,
NYC Career Coach
To achieve any significant personal and career goal, there will always be some struggle with the unwanted, the unknown and the unexpected.
It’s your ability to get past these obstacles that will get you the results you want.
Today I want to talk with you about commitment.
Being committed means that you have the dedication and unstoppable drive that will not be overcome or vanquished by doubts, fears, real world obstacles and setbacks.
When you are committed, you will have more focus, clarity, purpose, inspiration and motivation.
And the ultimate measure of commitment is consistency of action.
Being committed enables you to manage fear, handle the unknown, and rise to challenges so you can stay in action and achieve your personal and career goals.
When you want to identify the right new career for you and make a career transition – it’s likely you will face obstacles, criticism, and uncertainty.
Making the decision to change careers is not enough.
You need to be fully committed to having the career success and satisfaction YOU want because if you’re not, you may falter when challenges arise.
One key to developing and sustaining commitment to make a career transition is to have strong, compelling motivation.
It is the inspired actions driven by your deepest motivations that will fuel you commitment to making your career change… and will keep you going so you don’t stop until you achieve your goal.
Here is your New Career Breakthrough assignment:
To fortify yourself with the motivation that fuels strong and continuous commitment, write down all of the reasons WHY you want to change your current work situation and find the right new job career for you
Chances are, you have several (or many) ‘whys’. Some reasons might be positive, such as what you want to achieve.
Some of your reasons might be negative, such as pain you want to avoid or eliminate.
All of these are important.
Take time to identify and write down the positive and negative reasons why you want to have a career change… and you will have motivation you need to be committed.
I’d love it if you’d share a couple of your motivations below.
Always remember that with right knowledge, strategies and effort, you can attain an exciting career that you’ll really enjoy, excel in and pays you well.
