Accept the curve balls: Another thing we’d like to point out is the inevitability of curve balls as you try to make your career change. But just like you shouldn’t worry that things aren’t happening as fast as they should, try to accept that things don’t always go as planned. Make the most out of these hiccups by accepting them as simply another challenge to changing your career. If you really want to make the change, then it will be worth it in the end.
Be realistic: Although we already mentioned this in our post on things to consider before making a career change, it bears mentioning again: it is very important that you are realistic throughout the entire process. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t push your boundaries and try to go above and beyond. Just make sure that you are always keeping in mind the consequences of your actions, and how far you are willing to go to do what you want. If it seems way over your head, then we suggest giving it some more thought before you go ahead and execute it.
