I'm here to let you know, it's okay if your Plan A doesn't work. Or B, or C.
To be honest with you, I think I'm on Plan G and that is fine with me! But, I didn't always feel that way. When my plan A didn't work, it took me awhile to be okay with that. And by a while, I mean it took me over 5 years to get the courage to start building my Plan B and I still had to be forcefully pushed from my Plan A (laid-off). Even after I was on Plan C, I worried I made the wrong choice.
But guys, I was miserable and unhappy in Plan A. And each time I decided to go to a different plan, I knew I was getting closer and closer to work that moves, motivates, and fulfills me. Work that makes me happy!
All it takes is a little courage to take the first baby step toward your new plan. Keep taking baby steps and before you know it, you will be there!
