Career Myth 3 - Always have a back-up plan:

OK, here goes. Another career myth for you; a further myth that stops people living the life they really want to live.

Sometimes having a back-up plan is a smart and prudent course of action. They seem smart and grown-up and responsible. But what happens when you’re standing with one foot in and one foot out? In my experience, we usually close the door and retreat. We become reluctant to commit ourselves and then we end up denying ourselves what we really want. Even worst we end up with feelings of regret and those damn nagging questions of “what if?”. (These questions really kill me and I avoid them at all cost).

I think back-up plans diffuse our energy, and diffused energy diffuses results. Give all that you’ve got to your passion, your dream, your risk
and you’ve got a better chance of being successful.
