Tipping Points + 5 Things Holding You Back From Making A Career Change

Tipping Points + 5 Things Holding You Back From Making A Career Change | Flourish Careers

Listen Here


Hello and welcome! Today we’re jumping into a 2-part series around one of my favorite career change metaphors: 

Career change + Skydiving! 

We will begin by talking through different tipping points that may have gotten you to the point of taking the leap. Then jump into reasons that keep you from taking the leap—along with some thoughts to help you move forward. 

If you’re finding yourself held back, dig into those feelings:

  • Unsure where to begin and uncertain about your options—give yourself permission to explore.
  • Stuck by analysis paralysis and “what if” thinking—write out all the “what ifs.” Both “what if” this doesn’t work out AND “what if” it does.
  • Worried about what your family, friends, or coworkers will think—determine who you’re worried about, and remember, most people are more worried about themselves than what anyone else is doing.
  • Frozen by lack of direction— explore industries you are interested in/want to make an impact in AND roles that generate your energy.
  • If you’re afraid that you’ll find yourself stuck in another stressful job forever—determine what makes a job stressful, get out there and talk with people at your ideal companies to ensure they don’t operate that way.
