It happens to all of us: you’re cruising along (in your career, your relationship, your health, whatever).

You put your destination into the GPS, started following the directions on autopilot, and you’re fiddling with the music on the radio, take your eyes off the road for what only feels like a moment, and WHAM.

A pothole — seemingly out of nowhere — opens up and practically swallows your car tire, leaving you feeling trapped and helpless.

You were minding your own business, not paying attention, and all of a sudden, you’re stuck with a blown-out tire in the middle of the highway, watching other cars pass you by.

If you’re the kind of person who’s usually self-sufficient, a high achiever who did pretty well in school, this kind of situation is particularly frustrating.

“How did this happen? How did I end up here…and where do I go from here?”

If those questions are ones you’ve pondered at any point in your life, then keep reading. We have a heck of a podcast for you all about unconscious mindsets and how to get yourself back on track from mindset success coach Karenina Jahnigen.

 

Outdated mental operating systems can be incredibly painful — they keep us trapped in old beliefs that can suffocate current potential and opportunity.

Yet often in life, our places of deepest pain and suffering are the places from which we have the most to give. That’s certainly true of Karenina. Listen to her story of overcoming incredible pain and limitations throughout her life — and how she used her own learnings to help others as a coach who has helped people truly transform their lives.

Imagine this scene: you’re driving to the office, and you feel your stomach tighten up.

It’s not like butterflies, it’s more like anxious nerves starting to kick into high gear.

You park, hesitate for a moment in the car before walking up to the building, sigh, and wonder to yourself, “Do I really *have* to today?”

But if you’re anything like the thousands of people we’ve helped, there’s a part of your brain that probably also pipes up and says: “Appreciate what you have! This is a stable job with good benefits, is impressive to other people, and gives you vacation and sick leave. And leaving would have huge consequences on your family, your mortgage payments…what would you even do instead?”

Or, even more scary: “What if I change jobs and it’s worse?”

It makes it really painful to start to answer the question: Should I Quit My Job?

But it doesn’t have to be.

Here are four questions to help you weigh the Pros and Cons of quitting your job — versus some of the possible potential upside of staying.

On this week’s episode of The Happen To Your Career Podcast, four-time NYT bestselling author Gretchen Rubin dives into the science behind unmet resolutions, the anchor holding you back from your side gig, and the reason one “right way” might be...well...bullshit. A seasoned podcaster, she regularly co-hosts the Happier Podcast where she provides tips for making and breaking habits and success strategies for each personality type.

 

In her latest book, The Four Tendencies, Gretchen explains a personality framework involving, as you would guess, four tendencies. Each identified type is characterized by their tendency to respond to inner expectations and outer expectations. (Inner expectations being those you set on yourself—like New Year’s resolutions; outer expectations being those put on you by friends, coworkers, family, etc.)

Nope! Instead it turns out that all of them described making a career change as a journey and there are far more important advice to consider.

 

We’ve taken the advice from 6 successful career changers and put it into this episode

Think back to the day of your high school graduation.

Remember the heat. Remember the squirming. Remember the excitement to get out of that place, and move on to something better.

But, for a second think back to the speeches that day. Whether it was your Principal or your Valedictorian (or maybe you!), they all had one thing in common. Each person imparted a piece of wisdom (or warnings) to you and your fellow 18-year-old graduates.

They told you: “Remember, it’s about the journey, not the destination.”

If you’re anything like me, that phrase went in one ear and out the other. You just finished the longest journey of your life: high school. And now, you were jumping out of your seat, although a bit nervous about the unknown, for whatever was to come next.

But then…you got there.

You arrived at that place–any adult milestone really (college, first job, moving to a new city), and this fearful, uneasy thought might have crept into your mind. You try to push it away, but it always comes back: “There mustbe something else out there.”

So, you continue to search. New job, new city. New friends, new relationships.

But it somehow, each step you take still ends up feeling the same.
