How to Make a Bold Move in your Career and Life

Start new career

There’s something in the air. All around me clients and friends are making bold career and life changes. Person after person is telling how good it feels to shed the weight of a job that wasn’t meaningful or aligned with their strengths or values.

They are saying things like:

“I feel like a weight has been lifted!”

“I can’t believe I didn’t do this sooner!”

“My new work just feels so ‘right’!”

It is so inspiring!

… and it got me thinking. Each of us is capable of making bold moves that allow us to align our careers and lives with our values and strengths. It’s not an easy (and most often not a quick) journey, but it can be done.

What is a bold move? It’s when you choose to do something different. Not just doing something different … but choosing to do something different. It’s when you make that choice that the shift – the move – occurs.

So what do you need to do to make your own bold move? The answer to this question is all about trust, courage and perspective. I’d lay out the details here but this Lifehack.org article sums it up wonderfully. It includes some simple yet powerful steps to help you get moving in the right direction.

What bold move are you ready to make in your career and life? What step are you willing to take today to move towards making your vision a reality?
