Give Yourself a Period of Exploration
You might be feeling disempowered because you’re stuck in a rut. You don’t like your job, but don’t have a clear idea about what else you could do. Or, perhaps you’re just bored with life in general and need a jump-start. Try giving yourself permission to take a period of time, say six months to a year, to try some new things. These don’t need to be related to your area of discontent. You just want to get some energy moving in your life and challenge yourself a little. Ideas might include taking a class, volunteering for a community cause, hiring a personal coach or taking a break on a long weekend to explore someplace new.
