Everyone has dreams and aspirations.
Some people want to become a neurosurgeon, some want to become a rockstar. Others want to start a family, work on a farm, or maybe even open a surf shop on the Pacific coast. No matter what your dreams are, chase them tenaciously until your legs fall off.
Now, of course, this sounds like a cliche, and that’s because it is. But if you’re ready to move on from your current position, it might be time to consider the risks and rewards of starting anew.
Step One: Assess the Situation
It might seem a bit played out, but grab a pen and pad of paper and sit down with your thoughts. If you have a significant other, include them in this process. Not doing this could cause tension. Communication has been shown time and time again to be a positive influence in long-lasting relationships.
So, what factors should you consider? Here are just a few:
Questions like this often take time to answer. Even more often, there are no concrete and absolute answers. But you still need to decide.
Step Two: Make the Decision
If you never make a firm and calculated decision, you will never get the chance to embrace your dreams. And apathy is contagious. A study conducted on graduate school admission test takers found that when students were subliminally shown pictures of apathetic people, their test scores were worse than those shown optimistic faces and a control group.
Apathy might not just be making you miserable, but your family as well. Decide. You simply must.
Step Three: Plan the Logistics
Here’s the detailed part. You have a vague idea of the financial burden this move will place on your family. That’s likely one of the biggest reasons you had against moving. Say you do decide to pursue your dreams. What do you need?
The decision is scary, and you might not necessarily have all of the answers at first. But with a solid plan and the support of your partner or family behind you, your dreams of starting your own business are closer than you might think.
