Do not let your fears choose your destiny. ~ Unknown
Be open to relocating to launch, change, or advance your career. Some people have reservations about packing up and moving to a new location. Others are eager to experience the new adventures a location change will bring. If you are on the fence about relocating for an ideal professional opportunity due to personal reasons; make a list of pros and cons. Set aside dedicated time the following day after completing the list to review each pro and each con listed. Timing is a significant factor when determining if a relocation can become a reality. If your personal foundational components are in order or can lineup quickly for you to elevate your career and create new adventures, accept the offer to relocate. A change of scenery can be an awesome opportunity in disguise for your career and your overall lifestyle.
A man’s character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation. ~ Mark Twain ~
