Transitions are a natural part of your career
Do you get an intuitive feeling sometimes that “It’s time to move on?” The world in which we live is cyclical. There is a beginning and an ending to all things. In our careers, we will experience many cycles. There will be many endings and new beginnings. In fact, the endings are necessary to the new beginnings.
Even though endings are necessary, they can be painful and dis-orienting. It is during these “transitional” periods where meaningful reflection paves the way for new beginnings. The following primer can help you through periods of transition in your career and life.
A resource for accessing your inner wisdom
If you found the primer useful, or you want to deeply connect to your meaning and purpose, I humbly suggest a book I had written called Solving for “WHY”. This book contains twelve essential questions to guide people through challenging times from best coach for you, that is, guidance from your greater self.
During this dis-orienting period where people are looking to others for answers, do not forget to look to your inner wisdom. Once you have tapped into that inner wisdom, you will have more peace and resilience. No matter what the outer circumstances, you will be amazed by your own ability to guide yourself.
