    Making a Big Change

    Sometimes life just happens. 

    You start with a dream, and end up taking the first decent thing that’s offered. But that dream, that vision, never really fizzles out. It sits in your mind like an open tab on the internet. Something that you’ll... get back to…someday. 

    Don’t worry though, this feeling is incredibly common. And the good news is that, you can do something about it. If the change you want to make is in your career; this Blinkist Article will bring you a few tips from a person whose life has been characterized by reinvention and excellence. 

    Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

    Arnold has reached some of the highest heights in the domains of body building, acting and politics. It’s like he’s had multiple lives. And by doing so, he proves that, we too, can have another life. Or in this case, another career.  

    Here’s the article in a nutshell.

    Becoming the next version of yourself, can either be directed or undirected,

    If you have a vision of where you want to be in the future… and you want to reach it; you must adopt an intentional and directed mindset. 

    This starts with believing that, you not only “can” become the person you envision, but that, with the right steps, that change is inevitable. 

    The clearer the vision and more precise the steps, the more likely you are to end up where you want. 

    To get a good idea of what those steps should be; work backwards from your goal. Look at what those who you admire have done. Look at what others who are on the same path are doing. Eventually you will have to carve your own path, but to begin with there are usually clear steps in front of you, you just have to take them. 

    Finally, take notice of the little things. Changing your career won’t happen overnight. It will happen a little bit at a time. But just like small efforts add up to great outcomes; small distractions can take you a long way off course. 

    So, stay focused. 

    Now, that was only the highlights. 

    If you want to learn more about how to change your life and career from the master career changer, Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

    Stick around.
