What’s the definition of a good day— and when was the last time you had one?
That was my horoscope the day I finally decided to leave my job for the life I wanted. My career had been unfulfilling for quite some time. Burnt out and disillusioned, no longer passionate about my work, I stood at a crossroads. The promotion I had been working toward for years was within my grasp. Problem was I didn’t care. Just when I finally had what I thought I wanted, the only thing my new promotion meant to me was more of the same.
I considered my future and wondered, “Is this where I want to be— staring at these walls, doing what I’m doing for the next 10-20 years?”
I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and jumped— into a new life, one without walls, limits, or mediocrity.
Rebooting my life was the hardest and the best thing I’ve ever done, and I’m living proof that no matter your circumstance, if you feel stuck or uninspired you can still change the direction of your life.
You are allowed a do over.
Afraid? Make a game plan. Identify what’s holding you back and figure out a way to work around it, mitigate it or eliminate it. Remember courage isn’t the absence of fear. It’s persevering in spite of it. Can’t make a big change right now? Make small ones. Small decisive changes build on each other, creating momentum that will eventually snowball toward your goal.
All it takes is action.
Reboot your life and get your passion back. I promise it will be one hell of a ride.
Here’s to you.
