If you’re considering a career transition, it’s unlikely your obstacles are unique. Everyone who makes a career move has to deal with similar obstacles during the pre-commitment phase. The specifics are different for everyone, but the pattern is similar: How will I support myself and my family? How can I live my job? What if it doesn’t work out?
So what determines who actually commits to the transition vs who remains stuck? The truth is that it has nothing to do with the size or nature of the specific obstacles...People with every advantage, including money in the bank and family support, stay stuck all the time, while those who seem to have the odds stacked against them proceed as if the obstacles weren’t even there...
The difference is that those who successfully transition, see themselves as more than capable of overcoming the obstacles in their path. Their internal resources like focus, desire, and self-discipline compensate for their lack of external resources. If they need more money, they find other ways to get what they need. If their families don’t support them, they say, “Too bad, I’m doing this with or without your help.” If they have to take a pay cut, they find a way to live more cheaply and eat lots of rice...:).
On the other hand, those who remain stuck seem to believe that external reality is bigger and stronger than their inner resources. Consequently, they seldom make a serious attempt. Instead they just stare at the obstacles and complain about them...
Personal development plays a major role here. Many people I have worked with as a coach, told me they never would have been able to succeed in making such transitions if they hadn’t put so much effort into working on themselves first. This includes building focus, discipline, and confidence.
When people reach the point of believing that their inner resources are strong enough to handle the external obstacles, they get moving. And no external reaource is needed in order to start and successfully accomplish their journey. Because really...when you start from nothing, you can create anything...
