What are the tell tale signs, when you know you have outgrown something?
Bored, unhappy, in the doldrums, not learning anything, its not fun anymore, it just doesn’t feel right, you’re coasting, you’re faultfinding, frustrations are rising, constantly checking for alternatives, there is no stretch anymore, you feel way too comfortable, there is little satisfaction, time just seems to drag, you’re not engaged…Inside you just know its time to move on and change.
All of the above? Some of the above?
Sounds or feels familiar? The signs are clear?
As a coach, I have listened to this tale on numerous occasions. In fact, I have lost count how many times.
So – what now?
Firstly, give it some real thought, ponder, reflect and revisit your goals – what do you want from life?
Secondly, speak to someone you trust. A partner, your boss, a colleague, a friend, perhaps even a coach. Share your thoughts, keep an open mind and explore opportunities together.
Outgrowing things happen. Listen to your intuition – you’ll know!
