Many people start climbing one mountain (a career path), get two-thirds of the way up, and then realize they don’t even like the mountain.
And the view at the top won’t be much better.
At this point, you have a couple choices:
If you choose option #1, this will mean you are choosing to reinvent yourself.
It will mean starting over in a sense, which might feel hard.
But it’s also setting you up for a joyous future.
You don’t want to wake up 5, 10, or 20 years from now and regret not having started over earlier.
You have one life. Follow your bliss.
As Benjamin Button said in the film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button:
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
