Overcoming Mindset Issues Affecting Career Transition
Addressing Self Limiting Beliefs
As you begin your career transition, the first obstacles you may encounter are your own self-limiting beliefs. At an emotional level, you may have decided that it is time to pursue a new career that does not involve direct patient care. But as you contemplate taking concrete steps, you may experience tremendous self-doubt. Some of the internal dialogue that frequently comes up are:
- I don't know anything except "medicine."
- I don't know where to start.
- I'm too old to shift to a new career.
- I'm afraid I will fail.
- I don't want to let my patients/family/spouse/colleagues down.
- I feel guilty about letting "society" down if I leave direct patient care.
- I'm afraid of succeeding.
