Are you letting doubt prevent your career change?

If so, here is how do you change doubt to do.

When I was thinking of leaving my role as a headteacher, of course there were doubts.

  • Will I be able to provide for my family?
  • Can I earn enough money?
  • Am I making the right decision?
  • What else should I do instead?
  • Will I regret a career change not working with children?
  • Will I miss the school holidays?
  • Am I employable outside education?
  • What about my pension?
  • And many more besides…

Doubts exist irrespective of how clear the reality is. You may be:

  • Stressed
  • Miserable
  • Barely seeing family and friends
  • Working all hours (and still not keeping up with workload!)
  • On constant ‘high-alert’
  • Suffering with ill-health mentally / physically
  • Living only to work (no life)

You know you need to do it. You have so many doubts.

But here is how to help shift the mindset to make doing something about it a little easier.

Which future career do you want to choose?

Imagine you have two futures.

Future 1 – you stay “comfortable” (we kid ourselves that change is bad). You don’t change. You continue for the rest of your working life exactly as you are right now.

Future 2 – you did it. You changed careers. You have a new path, and your life is different; you no longer face your current situation. You have your life back!

What is it worth to you to be able to walk away?

What is it worth to you to find a career that ‘fits’ your lifestyle?

Doubt if you must – but do it anyway.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
