Do you let your fear of the uncertain keep you from pursuing the things that fulfill you? Are you pursuing a career that makes you unhappy?
If your answers to these questions are yes, ask yourself why. Are you staying where you are because you don’t want to disappoint others? Because you’re worried about what people will think? Because you’re worried that you’ll fail elsewhere? All of the reasons will be rooted in fear. That is good because fear is usually a choice.
Based on your situation, determine the amount of risk that you’re willing to take to walk away from your unhappiness. You may not be able to walk away from everything overnight, but we all have the ability to take the initial steps to choose uncertainty over unhappiness.
