A client of mine told me something recently, that was hard for him to admit.
“I don’t think it’s as simple as me looking for my next job — I think I’m facing a career crisis, and I’m finding it really confronting!”
Honestly, I understood what he meant.
I’ve been there myself, and I’ve coached hundreds of others in a similar boat.
If those words hit home with you, know that it’s okay.
Not only is it perfectly normal to arrive at a moment in your career where you feel like you’ve reached a crisis point, but…
… it can actually be a good thing!
A crisis point is a difficult or dangerous time, but it’s also a time when a solution is needed.
Knowing you’ve hit a crisis point forces you to find that solution — a solution you might have been putting off trying to find for weeks, months, or even YEARS.
Because once you’re in crisis mode, you don’t have a choice.
