Have you ever found yourself getting frustrated or wanting more from your career but thinking that it’s “too late to change”?
Or that if you did make a change, you would be throwing away everything you had worked so hard for?
In my work as a business owner’s relationship management expert with leaders around the world, I’ve found that large, life-changing transformation is something that many leaders resist, even when they know that they would be better off in the long-run.
For many, it’s about thinking that the risks are too high and that they’ve worked too long and hard to get where they are today—and that any big change they made in their careers would return them to where they started.
Blockers to Change
- I’ve worked too hard to get where I am today
- Too many people rely on me
- I don’t want to start over
- The risk is too high
- I don’t know where to start
- I don’t know what I’m passionate about anymore
- I’m afraid of failing

The risk of failing is the core of the issue. To move forward and work through that fear, you need to understand on a deep level that your current situation in life is not the result of luck.
It is the result of hard work, determination, core skills, and your own personal experiences that have gotten you where you are today.
When you make a change, you don’t put all your past experiences behind you. Your knowledge comes with you, your work ethic comes with you—and when you make the change towards the life and business you want, your purpose to achieve success is even greater than ever before.
