Finding your path
If you are not satisfied with your current job and you would like to try something very different but you cannot, it's highly probably that the main reasons are that you have no clear idea what you really want, you are afraid of the financial and other consequences of your decision, or you don't have enough money or the necessary skills to start.
Even if you know what you want, you may just stay in the same job for years because you don't want to lose income, invest a lot of money into a business or into your education.
Overcoming all of these reasons requires a strategic and systematic approach to start and complete a career change. It may take months and even years to execute a smooth transition without damaging other aspect of your life like your relationships, financial situation and health.
