Launching a career or breaking into a field is hardest at the beginning. Just like a rocket ship, you need to move through the stratosphere before you're cruising in outer space!
That can take effort.
But know that once you land that first role, it gets easier. You can start hopping amongst the planets and the stars (finding new and better jobs).
So just start. Go after an imperfect opportunity. Over time you can dial in that dream role.
The next 5 years will pass anyway. Are you going to move forward, or stay where you are?
