I speak with so many people who feel trapped in their career. "I don't know how to do anything else," they say. "I'm too old/inexperienced/nervous to change now."
They think there is only one way, and the only way is up. And if they aren't stepping up onto the next rung of the career ladder, there must be something wrong with them.
I've created a little infographic to explain: a career path doesn't have be in a linear, upward line to be valid or fulfilling. Are you brave enough to take a leap of faith? If not, what can you do to recognise what will make you truly happy in your work?
