If You're Considering Career Retraining...
Current estimates suggest that thirty three per cent of people in Britain today are at best tolerating their working life, and many admit they've reached the stage of being right at the end of their tether!
With situations like this - and in reality it's time many of us stopped 'living under the circumstances' - it's no surprise that thousands of people look to retrain to get into something else. However, there are such a lot of career programmes available - and a bewildering number of exams to quality in, so it can be a tough job knowing where to start!
And there's always the problem of creeping doubts - How will we fit it all in? Is the new career going to be any better than the old one? Is there any work available in the sector we're looking at?
Embrace The Positives...
Fear of change will paralyse action - it's time to take charge! After all, we've got many years of working life ahead of us. Where's the downside in training for a healthier opportunity? One that will lead to a better quality of life for ourselves and our families.
Can you imagine building a career where the work is a pleasure to do, it suits your personality and ethics, and you are respected as a valuable member of the team. Plus naturally having more skills tends to lead to more pay; all great reasons to stop twiddling your thumbs and get the training ball rolling - after all, you know you want to!
...And Get On Board
Have you always had a hankering for a certain career, but never really got on board with it because the circumstances weren't right (back to those crushingly-dominating circumstances again...)
Perhaps you've reached your state of readiness, and are prepared to do what it takes. You will of course have to motivate yourself if you're tired after a day at work - but that's not really a hardship as the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Men and women who really care about their jobs usually find life to be a mirror - the more they've put in themselves, the more they receive back in exchange.
