  • Develop a success mindset: challenge the negative or limiting thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back, and stay open and excited about future possibilities
  • Understand what drives you: What are your values? What is your purpose? How do you define success?
  • Own your brilliance: Identify your unique strengths, qualities, skills and talents. In which careers could these be helpful?
  • Create an inspiring vision: Consider all the career options available to you with an expansive perspective rather than restricting yourself to what you think is possible. Dream big, and then narrow down the options that fit with your values, purpose and definition of success.
  • Take action: research the career options that are a fit, uplevel your skills or experience, nurture and expand your network, pimp your CV & LinkedIn and get support from a coach or mentor to assist you with this career change
