Thinking of Changing Careers? Feeling anxious and overwhelmed?

If you are contemplating or in the process of deciding to change careers then read on !

Ten years ago I had no career and no place to live. Sounds pretty dramatic… and it was!

For over twenty years, I lived in Los Angeles and had a great career in the media industry. Then one day, just over ten years ago, something happened!  I realized my career was coming to an end due to technology and demand changes – plus I was totally burnt out with living in Los Angeles!

Does any of this sound vaguely familiar? Are you contemplating a major change in your career?

Do you have feelings of concern and apprehension about where your career is heading?

 I had many such thoughts.

In recent years, I have had to face the realities of being a baby boomer moving into my fifties and having the world around me change significantly. I felt there were so few options that it created a paralysis of fear and an inability to act, even though I felt something needed to be done.

Does that sound familiar?

Increasingly, people are being forced to change careers due to business closures and layoffs resulting from many factors. Some have been aware of such changes coming and have anticipated the challenges and obstacles associated with a mid-life change. Some are still wondering what is happening to the world they once knew. For those the obstacles can be numerous and formidable. Decisions have to be made and action needs to be taken. This is the time to take control of the direction you wish your career to go and the focus you must have to succeed.

Changing careers can be a difficult and stressful decision at any time. Career changes can be even more stressful for baby boomers as they are either reaching the height of their career, getting closer to the end of their careers or they have already ended their traditional careers.

To succeed in changing your career, one must focus on a number of important things that will help facilitate change:

  • Education and/or skill set
  • Resources to accomplish the task
  • Clear and defined tasks to attain goals
  • Strong determination to achieve goals

Success is in the mind of the beholder. To achieve success it is up to you to make the conscious decision to work for that goal. Everyone’s version of success is different. It is up to you to determine what your true goals are and what determines success for you.

I found that my five step approach to Career Change Success provided me the structure and guidance to fully evaluate where I was and where I wanted to go.

Take a look it will help you.
