What are your core values that need to be considered as you explore new opportunities? This is an awesome opportunity to walk out your vision for you
Making the transition from the womb to this dynamic world we live in has to be a life altering event for a baby. What was once a comfortable and secure place inside his mother’s body is now gone. Perhaps the saving grace is the familiar voice that was heard over the past several months is still being heard.
A career transition can be the same way. When we are forced to leave a job as a result of being terminated or downsized or forced to go back in the workplace after being a stay at home (working) mom, it can be a very traumatic event if we don’t see the good and listen for the inner voice that says “It will be okay.” It is extremely important to connect with an individual or a group to encourage you during your time of moving forward. Yes. You must move forward because the past is gone and there are new adventures awaiting you.
“People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan.” I first heard this phrase from S. Truett Cathy, the founder of a major restaurant, based in Atlanta, Georgia. Often, the “shift” caught us by surprise so that we are unsure of what to do. Or even worse, we saw the “writing on the wall” and tried to be proactive but we still do not have adequate income. What do you do when a when having a good work history and work ethic still does not get you the income you need?
This is why it is important to dig deeper into what is important to you at this point in life. What are your core values that need to be considered as you explore new opportunities? How will your new assignment bring balance in your world? This is an awesome opportunity to walk out your vision for your life!
A wise move is to dig deeper into the resources that are available through your local Department of Labor, Workforce Development Organizations, nonprofits with job readiness programs, career information internet sites, blogs, and private organizations. These resources can help you develop and implement an action plan to explore all the possibilities this great world has in store…just like the child who learns how to enjoy his new support system and surroundings.
