A new inconvenient truth
One can only keep their blinders on for so long. If you’ve been in denial about the state of our economy and the effects it’s having on the job market, now is the time to face the truth. Inconvenient, yes, but it’s a reality and pretending that it doesn’t exist is no longer an option.
It’s highly likely that you or someone you’re close to is already a victim of the New Career Economy. Downsizing and the impending threat of layoffs are forcing many people to reevaluate their current professional situations. For example:
- “Am I really happy with my career choice?”
- “Am I where I thought I would be 10 years ago?”
- “Where do I see this career path taking me in the next 10 years?”
Is the road you are on getting you closer to your Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity expectations?
These are some things to keep in mind when you’re considering a possible change.
Channel your inner child
Remember how big and limitless your dreams were when you were a child? You were able to focus on the end result without being daunted by the journey to get you there. You never considered failure to be an option. What if you could think that way again?
You can! Let the New Career Economy be your catalyst. This is your chance to revisit those dreams you may have set aside at some point in the past. Even if you still have the same personal and family goals you originally set out with, who says you can’t alter the journey to get you there? Remember, nothing is set in stone—you can begin to transform your future today.
