Back from Thanksgiving vacation? How was your first day back? Were you reenergized? Were you excited to do what you love? Hmmmm……crickets.
According to Gallup, only 31% of you love what you do. This is an American statistic. If you look worldwide, that number gets even smaller. Only 31% of you feel valued, engaged, and passionate about your life’s work. So it begs the question….why aren’t you making a change?
Some of the popular reasons why people do not make a job change are:
Fear of change
You don’t feel brave enough
You think you have to stay in your current job to pay the bills
You give up after a failure or two
You’re not uncomfortable enough in your current job
You don’t even know where to start to find your true calling
The first step doesn’t have to be a giant leap or a complete job change. One small change leads to other small changes which eventually will lead to huge adjustments.
