As a result of today’s fast paced world, new opportunities are constantly on the horizon for you to grab with both hands. Therefore, it’s important to keep in mind that staying in one career your whole working life, can be great but is no longer a necessity! If there is an alternative career that appeals to you or excites you, then we suggest you take the plunge and go for it.
At powering Your Potential we are all about opportunities, so if you are looking for them, we can tell you, very often, they are on the flip side of challenges. You have to have your eyes open to them and be prepared to take the plunge when they present themselves, but they are there.
A job for life is difficult to imagine when you cannot imagine what life is going to look like in 5 years time! So ask yourself, what is the worst that can happen? If you just read Linkedin there are loads of stories of people who are looking for work, having just been let go. They are also the same people who are looking for a new opportunity, to work with another company, another group of people and have another opportunity to grow! The vast majority find them and then become the people posting about the great new role they have secured!
I spent a great many years working in insurance, which can be viewed as something that is negative, only there to restore material things, as best they can, in the event of a catastrophe of some form. But insurance is also there to support people who see an opportunity, often to go further, faster, taller, longer, pushing the technological boundaries of what is possible.
It is all about perspective!
The human brain is designed to adapt and pick up new skills so why not push yourself? You never know where your next adventure could take you. The world is your oyster!
