Fear of Changing Careers-learn From David & Goliath

By: Keji Giwa

If you are unhappy about your current situation, unfulfilled at work and seriously frustrated but scared to make a change, then you have no one else to blame than yourself.

You don't have to settle for less. Why settle for a lesser career when you can choose from a number of life fulfilling careers.

The problem with most people is they refuse to understand their worth and value in life.

It has costs scientists, engineers and physicist years of research, millions of pounds and probably some more time just to recreate an artificial and fully functional humanoid. Humanoids are a copy of you and I, and even up to now; an exact replica of man can still not be created.

Doesn't that tell you something - You are priceless.

If the copy cost millions of pounds and years of research, what more of the real thing?

Now that we have established the fact that you are priceless; let us now figure out how you value yourself.

How you see yourself is how other people will see you. If you think you are hopeless, you will act, dress and look it - PERCEPTION can be reality - People will consider you as hopeless.

Since you are priceless, it is obvious that no company can afford you.

What do you now do since no company can afford to purchase you.

You need a job and you need to get paid. Well, lease your time, resources, energy, passion, talents, experience and achievements at a price you are happy to settle for.

Do you see yourself thinking I am worth more than I am being paid at the moment? You don't need to think it, you are.

The value of your wages will always be based on necessity, how unique and scarce your resources, energy, passion, talents, experience, time and achievements are.

If you are doing what the average Joe can do, you will always have to settle for an average wage. Why pay you more when Mark, Sharon and Sally can do the same job and probably better. You are placing a lesser value on yourself and refusing to discover the real you and your true potentials.

On the other hand, if you know what your true talents are, capitalise on them, celebrate them daily by improving and exercising them and allowing your natural energisers (PASSION) to engage your daily activities, then you will soon be the envy of all and highly demanded by many.

"A man's gift will make way for him and bring him before Kings and Queen" - Wisdom of Solomon.

This is why the David and Goliath story never seizes to amaze me.

During the war between the Philistines and the Israelites, many, many years ago. There was a giant called Goliath who terrorised and insulted the Israel's army because of his gigantic size and physical attributes. He constantly challenged Israel's army to a 1 on 1 combat and rebuked them for responding cowardly.

Israel's army saw Goliath and thought, he is so big, tall, heavy and strong, he will crush us to death

Meanwhile, there was a boy who tendered his father's flock of sheep as a shepherd. He was a gifted, talented and powerful sling thrower with precision and accuracy. His name was David, a young and energetic boy. A boy of strong faith in his believes, principles and purpose.

Question: How strong is your faith in yourself, abilities, believes and principles?

When David heard of this giant that defied the army of Israel, he refused to settle for less and decided to make a change.

Something you need to do! He accepted Goliath's challenge.

David saw Goliath and thought, he is so big and tall, I can't miss, so heavy and strong, he will fall hard, head first and die.

Trusting in his own abilities and believes, he took only his sling and a few stones (talents), with no armour (what every one wears - the average Joe) and to everyone's amazement, struck the giant in the head and killed Goliath with only one stone from a single shot from his sling.

His reward: Great riches, a place in the palace with the King, favour with the King's son and the hand of the King's daughter in marriage.

How cool is that!

Now! Get up and make a change in your career today.
