Unlock your dream career: How to successfully change careers


Are you ready to embark on a journey that will redefine your career and transform your life? It's a question that elicits a resounding "Yes!" from most people, but when it comes down to it, the process of changing careers can be intimidating.

Regardless of where you currently stand - whether you're just casually looking, actively exploring new opportunities, or already have a clear goal in mind - switching careers can feel like scaling a mountain.

Just like a mountaineer, you need the right tools and strategies to safely reach the top. Because a successful career change goes beyond simply landing your dream job or starting your own business. It involves enjoying the journey and protecting your mental and physical health throughout the process.

Make your career transition a success

Dominic Junghänel, career coach and founder of Mindful Career, understands the challenges of transitioning careers firsthand. "During my own career change, I went through all the typical stages, starting with a complete lack of clarity. I had no idea what I wanted, not just in terms of my career, but in my life as a whole. Thankfully, I had a great coach at that time who helped me basically rediscover myself and uncover my path," he remembers.

The experience was so transformative and impactful that Dominic decided to become a coach himself, assisting others in finding clarity and pursuing more fulfilling career paths.

Removing mental barriers is key to career development

However, even after identifying his vision and setting his goals, Dominic still faced a lack of confidence that was holding him back. "I had numerous limiting beliefs...There was a constant feeling within me that I wasn't cut out to be an entrepreneur, that I just didn’t have what it takes to be successful on my own."

"Coupled with other fears and self-doubts, along with the responsibility of caring for my two young children and family, I almost abandoned my plan at one point," he recalls.

Once again, coaching helped Dominic overcome these limiting beliefs, build up his confidence and muster the courage to move forward. Fast forward to today: since establishing his coaching practice, Mindful Career, in 2021, Dominic has assisted numerous clients in successfully navigating their career transitions. Reflecting his own journey, the core pillars of his coaching process are clarity and confidence.

After going through the experience himself, Dominic now provides compassionate career coaching from a point of empathy. "Dominic is one of the most motivating people I know. I'd recommend him to anyone who is looking for a space to question themselves and their life choices," writes recent coaching client Sonny. Kevin, another one of Dominic's clients, added that he "felt much more in tune with what I wanted... and more confident in setting and achieving" his goals.
