How should I know that many years later, the same words would go on — over and over in my head. "Should I stay or should I go?" Should I stay in my job, or should I follow this dream I had?
I asked myself this question over and over again. For months and months.
I knew what I had. I had a safe income. I had good colleagues. I had a good job. What I didn't know was what I could expect if I quit my job and went all in on my new dream.
What if I didn't make it? What if I had big regrets? What if we went bankrupt? What if? What if?
It was the first thing I thought about when I woke up in the morning. And the last thing I was thinking about before going to bed at night.
...Should I stay or should I go?
I thought it was just me having thoughts like that. Why wasn't I happy with what I had? Why did I need to have all these thoughts? I had, like I said, a good job with a safe income. I had been through a really rough time a few years earlier at my job. A really rough time. A time that showed me that life is short. And that if I wanted to live my life to the fullest, it could be too late before I knew it.
That is also the reason for this blog post. It seemed that I was not alone having thoughts like these. There were more people out there who wondered about the same thing as I had back then. Who was asking themselves if they should stay in their job, or do something else.
As you are reading this post, you are maybe one of those having the same questions in your mind.
What if...? Should I...? But...?
As I'm making some content to a new online course, I would really appreciate your input if you have been wondering this yourself.
Earlier today I made a survey with 7 questions. I would really appreciate if you help me out by answering them.
You will find the survey right here (it's an anonymous survey):
To give my thanks to those of you who take your time answering the questions in the survey, I have decided that I will pick out one of you — and give you one hour of free coaching as a thank you.
You might not just help yourself by answering these questions... it might be someone else out there asking themselves the EXACT same questions as you do these days. And the same questions as I asked myself back then.
So thank you in advance.
And before I forget it: The survey will be down after January 22, 2020!
...And if you want to singalong to the good old "Should I stay or should I go", you will find it right here:
Get your dancing boots on, and get back on the dance floor (or your living room floor) right now!
