NOTE: Never pay any money to any recruiter for any purpose (certificates, medical testing, interview, work kit or any other thing).
Did you ever chat with anybody who tried to stay put right where they are? What held you back from trying it yourself? Some dream of it, few go further. Only a few go beyond dreaming and began acting. Many never really pay attention to it, come up with some excuse and push the thought onto a back burner. One can find excuses like, it’s too hard or too complicated, or I don’t have the time or I do not know where to begin. So they procrastinate, which repeats, and they never attain it.
But were the reasons given enough to warrant stopping altogether? Did the excuse justify the halt in moving forward? Did they really know very well what they’re missing?
Let’s look into this more closely. There are actually 5 main reasons to reconsider your career path. Let’s consider them. Let’s look at them purely to make sure that we have not missed anything:
#1 A career change to something you enjoy will improve your quality of life. Sure, I do know your argument that the bills aren’t paid based on a happiness-at-work scale. And you’re right, that’s a valid argument, but think about it this way, you spend most of your life at work, so finding a job you enjoy makes sense. What’s more, consider that the happier you are with your job, the likelier you are to put in quality work, increasing your chances of better pay.
#2 A job that accentuates your skills will take you further in your career path. The main reason for this is simple; if you are good at something and you enjoy doing it, chances are, your output and productivity will boom, leading to advancements down the road, along with sharpened skills.
#3 Finding a career that suits you can lead to opportunities to relocate. And also you might even wind up being assigned somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit!
#4 Starting your career over from the ground up can put you into a business mindset, leading to countless opportunities to make money on your own time and on your own dime.
#5 Veering from your current career path and putting your foot in the door in a field you would much prefer will connect you to more like-minded people.
When you consider and evaluate all those reasons, the cumulative weight of the arguments favoring reconsidering a career route is impressive, don’t you think so?
Maybe it really isn’t for you personally. However, just evaluate the benefits. If an ample number of those reasons impact you, then perhaps you ought to reconsidering your career route.
