Recent suggestions would have us believe that over 30 percent of British men and women are at best bored with their job, and at worst they have so much stress they find it difficult to sleep at night.
That's a lot of people who are doing the wrong job - no wonder so many think about retraining to get themselves qualified for a new career.
Yet there appear to be training programmes on everything, and a baffling amount of professional associations to learn about, that even starting to look can be a bit overwhelming!
And we're very good at creating obstacles in our heads - Will we be able to cope? What if we don't actually like doing that job either? Is there a genuine demand for the work we'd like to do?
The time has come to give ourselves a reality check! We know if we're honest we've still got many years of work to go. Why not embrace change and strive to build a more fulfilling career? 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.

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? Maybe it's the right time now to push through the challenges; remember - action cures fear!
You will of course have to motivate yourself if you're tired after a day at work - but so what? You'll be able to kiss goodbye to the job you don't want in a relatively short period of time. Those who love their jobs are usually much better company because they've moved away from being 'under the circumstances' where the victims of life live.
Are we saying it's very simple? No we're not. But results are very achievable with the technology available today, and many have succeeded before you.
