Career Change and Development

How do you know when its time for a change?

  • Your body is telling you enough is enough

  • Your job is impacting your self-esteem

  • You are only there for the money

  • You dream of a different career or promotion

  • You are lacking energy and are eternally bored

  • You have become disconnected from your passions

  • You are jealous of other people's job

  • You lack desire to push forward in your current role

  • You would leave if you could

  • Your friends and family have noticed a change in you

How many of the above relate to how you feel?  Making change is quite daunting and scary but being in a role that does not satisfy or give you fulfilment can waste many opportunities and time.  Let me share with you, my experience...

My Experience...

When I was young I wanted to be a PE teacher.  I was good at sport this was my passion.  My teachers felt it would definitely be the right job for me.  However, my parents didn't feel the same and so I didn't pursue this.  Instead I took on an admin role.  For years and years I was unhappy in this line of work. 

 

In my late 20's I had the opportunity to take over the running of a gymnastics club.  This was an amazing experience for me and one of my career highlights and successes.  I did this for 13 years.  However an injury meant I wasn't able to continue coaching to the level that was needed and so sadly I stepped away.  I continued working in admin as well so this is where I stayed.  There was a big void now, something was really missing and a gap I wanted to fill.  I needed to pinpoint what my real passion was.  I was now too old to go into sports teaching but I felt I had satisfied this desire with my 13 years of sports coaching.  I knew my passion was helping people achieve.  3 years ago I became a Health Coach for the NHS and I knew I had found 'the job'.  It ticked all the boxes and gave me a real sense of fulfilment.  Although health is a big part of life, not everyone struggles with ill health and it was this realisation that lead to me Life Coaching.  It took many years to get here because I didn't have any guidance on how to work this out.  Looking back I have spent a large portion of my career unhappy and unfulfilled, continuing in a line of work that left me bored and only doing it because that's all I had ever known.  Do I have any regrets?  No, I don't believe in regrets, I only wish I had more guidance to help me realise and utilise my talent earlier.  However, I am now in a career I absolutely love and I want to help you to find 'your perfect job'.
