Maybe horror is a bit over the top, but change can seem scary.

Despite the specifics surrounding your career change, breathing the air of uncertainty can leave you all choked up. The ball of emotions that one experiences during a sudden and unexpected cease of employment can be overwhelming, if we allow it to be. However, all is not lost. If we are willing to open our minds and take a look at the big picture, we can withstand the temporary setback and emerge with a rejuvenated outlook on life.

The act of changing careers may come by force or by choice. All of us have been at work and had the urge to stand up and yell out, “I quit!” Or on the other hand,  lay offs, pay freezes and other similar situations keep employees on edge, while companies desperately look for ways to maintain day to day operations. In either situation, some unseen force has deemed it time for a career change.

Despite our personal state of readiness, change falls upon everyone at some point and time. The uncertainty that accompanies a sudden change of employment status can be daunting at best. During this period we ask ourselves, “What am I going to do now?” Instead of panicking, we take a look at what we know to be true. The first is that we definitely need a source of income. How do we decide our next career choice? Ask yourself, if money were not an issue, what would I love to spend my days doing? Ironically, the answer that you come up with identifies what your next course of employment based action probably should be.

Now that we know what we want, it’s time to take a look at where we are and prepare to undertake our journey to where we want to be. We all need help at some point. Thanks to technological advances, the assistance we need is right at our fingertips. Sites such as, can help us carefully examine our next career based decision. Higher education is not exclusively limited to the young, just as work at home mums aren’t just for mums anymore. Regardless of our calling, it’s a relief to know that life changing assistance is only a mouse click away.

Change may close one door closes many more open; it’s about opening the one that’s right for you. The time given to us by change can be utilized for inner change also. No longer do we have to endure the soul consuming, spirit vexing, constant hustle and bustle of work that distracts our minds from the truly important aspects of life. We now have time to examine our character; assessing the strong points as well as the flaws and making the appropriate changes from within. By embracing and utilizing change, instead of fearing it, we grant ourselves the opportunity to acquire what we deem necessary to improve our quality of life.
