Do you get nervous about making big changes?

I have decided to change careers from Nonprofit Administration to professional level private sector. This will enable to have better benefits, retirement and three times the salary I am making now. But it is scary as hell.

  • What a wonderful opportunity for you! Congrats. I think having butterflies is perfectly normal when you make a big life change like changing your career. I'm sure once you get settled in to your new job, you will be very happy you made the change. Best of luck! :)

  • Yes, I am a risk averse person, but I usually work up the nerve, do it, and enjoy the benefits! Sometimes all it takes is 10 seconds of amazing bravery to make a decision that changes everything!!!

  • Any change in life should be scary. My DH retired from the army. We moved all over for 20 years. but it was still a little scary everything.

  • If the change affects the family, sure. If only me, no.

  • I think even little changes I question myself, but I don't let the what ifs hold me back.
