Over the last 20 years of transition, I’ve often heard, “I can’t have the career I want because I don’t have the right experience.”
I felt the same way when I began my career transition journey at the age of 22. It started broad, with wanting to better educate myself, or to own a business. Although these careers seemed vastly different, they all appealed to me.
Then I realised I was the main obstacle getting in the way of me pursuing my dream job.
In stepping out of your comfort zone, one of the key elements to keep in mind is your emotional being. This plays a crucial part in your day-to-day life. It’s one thing to sense the world around you, and it’s another to truly experience it. There is a clear distinction between the outside world and you… until emotions come into the mix.
