Make it known
Get in touch with people, talk to them and learn about it. Participate in volunteering activities and look for ways to educate yourself. The scary ignorance occurs because you are heading into a new unknown territory. By educating yourself and going back to school, you can really make this unknown territory comfortable to you.
Make it up
You might have known about many successful people who knew what they did and they made the decision. When you have gotten the hint that you have it in you, it is time to make it up.
Try it on a small scale
If you made up your mind to venture out on your own, you can start taking up part time projects. When you are doing a day job, hours may seem long. But when you are your own boss and completing your own projects, you can find more energy because you are following your passion. Therefore, try to find opportunities where you can pilot small or part time projects. Soon you will feel you are raring to go.
Sometimes you need to relocate to get yourself out of the rut. When you are leaping off a metaphorical cliff, you may be apprehensive whether you will have a successful landing. So instead of screaming ‘no’ when you leap off, say ‘wheee’ and start flying. You will really get enormous energy when you take the leap.
If you find yourself not being a leaper, be prepared. Try to find a solution to all the what-if problems. While you prepare yourself, care should be taken that you do not overdo it. Imagine how stale your world would become if you try only those things where you are aware how to do it.
Whoever it is, there always comes a time in their lives which signals a move-on. It is essential to detect those signals, make the decision to move on and have full confidence and faith in yourself when you take that leap. Of you have the courage to take that leap and the confidence to land into the new territory with confidence, nothing is going to stop you. In fact, the entire universe will start working in your favor.
