Should I Stay or Should I Go?

As a career coach, I get this question a lot.  Should I stay in my current position or look for another?  The scary answer is, you may not know until you get there!  This stepping into the unknown is the biggest fear that cause people to stay “comfortably” in their current job.

Don’t get me wrong, we all have to pay the bills.  I understand.  But have you asked yourself if there is a way to pay the bills AND move toward something closer to your true passion? 

Let’s get honest here.  Sometimes taking a step back in order to move forward seems almost impossible.  I admit, it takes some imagination and creativity but it can be done.  The next best thing doesn’t come without sacrifice.  But imagine yourself doing what you love to do every day….not what you “have” to do.  There is the payoff.

I hear “I have to stay where I am because of the money.”  Is that really true?  Write it down….then ask yourself, is it really true?  Am I more scared than anything else?  You may be surprised.
