Have you ever found yourself feeling guilty or unappreciative for wanting something other than the career and life that you've already worked so hard to create?
Does the doubt that lingers in your mind that maybe you're not on the right career path even though you've achieved great success in your professional life make you feel crazy or ungrateful?
Stop right there and get it out of your mind that there is something wrong with wanting something more. There is nothing wrong with having a desire to achieve something greater than what you've accomplished so far in your career.
Many of us are seekers and as seekers we may feel a deep sense that what we're doing with our lives isn't right for us. As seekers we may feel like we're made for something different, something more. We may experience the unnerving feeling like we may be the crazy ones because as we look around, we ask how other people are living their lives just fine in their chosen careers.
If you've found yourself in this place of wonder, asking how you're supposed to get started on getting out of your current career to find a new path or how you're supposed to even get started on changing your career path when you don't even know where you see your future self, then our chat with life and business coach, Caroline Greene, may be the episode for you.
