Are you Questioning your Career Decision?

Did you make what you thought was a good career decision x years ago, only to question yourself now?
One of the things we will often do in life is to change our values and things that are important to us. It didn’t happen overnight, it happened a little bit at a time. Then, you started noticing that what was once a good career, isn’t anymore.
When we come to that startling conclusion, we start thinking that perhaps the decision was flawed. We question our judgment and our own ability to guide ourselves. It’s not a good feeling to distrust us.
If you have been there or ever get to that spot in life, I’m here to reassure you that you can go to sleep tonight with the confidence that you can still trust your decision making. We don’t often notice the shift that takes place but for most people, we do shift in many ways as our life and situations shape us. On the other side of that unnoticeable shift, the career often no longer works.
That’s ok – it’s normal! (That means you’re normal)
Sure, it doesn’t happen to everyone but it happens with the vast majority of people who have made career decisions and pursued them.
What does this mean to you? Be gentle with you. You didn’t have it wrong all these years; you simply have changed along the way. Now that you know, don’t spend any time questioning that decision. Simply acknowledge the change and make a new plan.
This is simple. What’s not so simple is figuring out what you want to do when you grow up. I’ll address that another time.
Good night sweet prince and princesses. Now you can dream well.
