Overcoming the fear to change my job


fear to change job
For a long time I couldn’t make up my mind to move, change my job and change my life because I was afraid that I would lose my financial stability. This fear didn’t let me go until I thought it through.
To find my ideal job, first I’ve discovered myself, my passions and my dreams. Then, I finally admitted and understood that I wanted to become a life coach. I took action: I found and subscribed to my life coach training program last January. I will graduate in September. My plan was to quit my job after graduation.

Confronting my fear

By changing my job, I risk a lot: I lose my safe paycheck at the end of the month, my safe environment and my retirement plan (it sounds funny for me who could not plan anything a year ahead before, thinking about retirement). I have to make my way in a new career that I don’t know. I have to learn everything from the beginning. My engineering diploma, my resume, my past work experience… It took me years before having flourishing career, everything I have learned so far is no longer useful.

The fear of not being able to sustain in my new career was holding me back. With my current job in IT, I have my salary credited on my bank account monthly. But once I finish my training program and quit, what would happen? What if it doesn’t work? What if I can’t find any clients? What if….?
I could not ignore the risks. When I talk about it to my friends, the first questions they ask me are « How will you find your clients? » or « What if you don’t find any? ».
I was blinded by my fear. I didn’t even imagine how it would be once I quit my job. My fears suggested the worst scenarios: I end up living in the streets.

So I asked myself, what would REALLY happen in the worst case scenario?
– I don’t have enough client,
– I have no money,
– My business doesn’t work.
Pretty bad situation…
So now let’s imagine the worst case scenario happened. Having in mind my story, who I am and how I reacted before, what would I do?

My transformational journey in life coaching

Last Saturday was my last session with my life coach, Celestine Chua. We did a wrap up and looked back at all the sessions. Here’s a brief sum up of my wins. I plan to develop each part in dedicated posts 🙂
I had my first session on the 12th of October 2014 and my last one the 7th of February 2015.

Before life coaching

My request was to change my career, find my life purpose and my passions. When I arrived at the first session, I was lost and very frustrated with my job. I was so clueless about how to find my passions and my perfect job. I was so scared to move on and change my job because I was afraid to lose the safe place that took so much effort to build.
Back then, when I finally had the courage to subscribe for life coaching, I chose her 8 session coaching program called “Holistic Transformational Coaching”. I was afraid that it would not be enough and I would need more sessions. It was hard to believe that my life could be transformed in only 8 sessions. Against my belief and all expectations, my life indeed changed and it was deeply transformational.
