It's widely understood that in the UK today, well over a quarter of the workforce are to say the least not happy, and some of them have such a difficult time their work is a real threat to their health.
Of course nobody in this day and age is forced to put up with a job they hate - that's why such a lot of people look into the retraining market to find their escape route...
However, there are such a lot of career programmes available - and a wealth of different commercial examinations to contend with, that getting going is sometimes a big stumbling block!
In addition, we get niggly little thoughts that concern us - Have we got the time and inclination to study? Is getting into a new job really the right thing for us? Will there be any real opportunities to get the work we want?
It's time to put aside those doubts and fears and take control. Let's be honest - we've still got a lot more time to spend at work. Where's the downside in training for a healthier opportunity? One that will lead to a better quality of life for ourselves and our families.
Think what it would be like to know that you have the respect of the people working around you, you take pleasure in carrying out your daily tasks, and the work you do really means something. In addition you'll get a salary every month for doing what you love - what could be better than that? It can all happen for you if you stop putting things off and start making plans now.
Could it be that you've always had a secret desire to get into a particular profession, but one thing or another has meant you've repeatedly been putting it off?
Well maybe now you are ready to cast aside those obstacles and move on with your life. OK, so you'll have to study in the evening when you've been working all day - but that won't do you any harm!
You'll be enthused to do more by the thought of your new life. Folks who are excited about their work are generally happier, healthier and just more fun to be around than those who fall victim to the "I've no choice" mentality.
Obviously changing careers isn't easy. On the other hand, it's not that tough either if you approach it with the right mental attitude and application.
