I was going to edit this goal title, changing “reinvent my career” to “reinvent my life.” After a moment of consideration, however, I decided to stay with the former. The latter is too broad. Since at the present time I need a career in order to survive at a reasonable level of comfort, reinventing my career is essentially synonymous with reinventing my life.
Indecision is a major roadblock in for me in this endeavor, as is lack of ambition. These are exacerbated by a paralyzing lack of self-confidence. All these elements are fueled, I suspect, by fear.
Fear of economic loss, of course, is a fairly legitimate concern. While that fear is significant, I do not believe it to be the only fear element in play. What are the other causes of fear, and to what extent are those fears grounded in reality?
