Every new situation involves a challenge. Much as appealing as might seem to be, it requires us to step out of our comfort zone and let go of an old way of doing things. Now, in the era of uncertaintly, the era of destressed economy, many of us have envisioned a greater career, a more profitable job with the prospect of career development, yet we are afraid of leaving what we have and make the change. This fear prevents us from making decisions. This fear makes us create comfort zones. It cannot be denied that nowadays there are not many options for carreer opportunities, especially in my country, Greece, yet facing any kind of fear always entails a gift.
Except with a challenge, every new situation involves an opportunity. I invite you, therefore, to see what opportunities you are loosing because of your fear. What is the worst thing that can happen and how are you going to handle this, if it happens? What can you do to prevent the worst case scenario? What skills and strengths of yours will help you to muddle through and get what you aspire?
What change needs to happen so that you will not leave in the fear of moving forward?
I am more than sure that you’ve got all the answers within you. This fear has happened in my life and I always remember what Tom Robbins used to say: ‘We make a change when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change’
