Step 10 – Acknowledge that no matter what you decide, you will get what you are committed to getting.
This is probably one of the most difficult concepts for people to accept but it is absolutely true and you will prove it to yourself over and over again (if you haven’t already). Change is hard and contemplating and then working toward a career change can turn anyone’s world upside down. It is often replete with uncertainties, doubts, and what ifs and sometimes it may feel easier to throw in the towel or go with the safe route. But, in the long run, you will be right back where you started.
Whenever you feel stuck or feel like you are not attracting the outcome you want, take a step back and pay attention to what you are doing to influence your situation. Everything that you think, feel, and say impacts you. It impacts your external world as well as how you feel internally. What are you truly committed to getting? This question has to include the big picture – the entire process. You cannot just be committed to getting a great job with a handsome paycheck – you have to also be committed to the process it takes to make that happen. Ignite an awareness for every step of the way and keep your heart, mind, and body in tuned with what you want.
What kind of life and career are you committed to having? What are you willing to do to make it happen? You have control – you get to choose! Commit to it and stay with it and you will find you can have more than you ever thought possible.
