Have you ever found yourself getting frustrated or wanting more from your career, but thinking that it’s “too late to change”?
Or that if you did make a change, you would be throwing away everything you had worked so hard for?
In my work as a business owner’s relationship management expert with leaders around the world, I’ve found that large, life-changing transformation is something that many leaders resist, even when they know that they would be better off in the long-run.
For many, it’s about thinking that the risks are too high, and they’ve worked too long and hard to get where they are today—and that any big change they made in their careers would return them to where they started.
Blockers to Change
When I work with clients who show an interest in change but a hesitation to continue, the first steps that are taken are recognize the noticed barriers. Examples of these blockers might include:
- I’ve worked too hard to get where I am today
- Too many people rely on me
- I don’t want to start over
- The risk is too high
- I don’t know where to start
- I don’t know what I’m passionate about anymore
- I’m afraid of failing
The risk of failing is the core of the issue. To move forward and work through that fear, you need to understand on a deep level that your current situation in life is not the result of luck.
It is the result of hard work, determination, core skills, and your own personal experiences that have gotten you where you are today.
When you make a change, you don’t put all your past experiences behind you. Your knowledge comes with you, your work ethic comes with you—and when you make the change towards the life and business you want, your purpose to achieve success is even greater than ever before.
Why You Should Embrace Change
We’re not meant to stay in the same position forever, even when we’ve reached the top of our industries. Not only do our preferences change as we experience more of the world, but the way we want to spend our time changes as well.
Expecting our business to continue to meet our personal and professional needs and desires is not the solution. If we ignore our needs, we put up mental barriers that hold us back from recognizing our true potential.
What is the solution?
As a leader, you know how to evaluate risks and make decisions for others. It’s time to take those skills and put them to work for yourself.
If you’ve found yourself thinking that you want a change, or that you want your spark back and to find a deeper meaning in your business again, it’s time to stop saying it’s “too late” and time to start planning the next steps.
Many times, my clients have no idea what those next steps might be. It is only by viewing challenges and obstacles differently and removing the barriers that they can create a powerful vision for change.
