Are You at a Career Crossroads?
Book Review: Winning Through Career Change by Steve Preston
Steve Preston’s ‘Winning Through Career Change’ has one simple goal – to give readers all they need to achieve the brighter future they have been dreaming of. Now considered to be the definitive career change book by some of the world’s most respected personal development authors, such as Brian Tracy, Preston’s latest guide is a road map for those lost in the fray of their current job, and proof that you can always change your career and life for the better.
If you are:
Stuck in a rut, feeling unfulfilled
Unsure where your career is heading and feel ‘lost’
Not achieving or unaware of your true potential or purpose
Looking at making a career change but don’t know where to start
Considering starting your own business, but are hesitant and unsure what to do or how to begin
Returning to work after a career break and seeking a new career and life path
…. then Winning Through Career Change is the definitive career change book inspired by encouragement and positive feedback received from many readers, clients and the publisher of my first book ‘Winning Through Redundancy’. In the light of their experience and success, they were quick to see the value of broadening the concept beyond redundancy alone. It became clear that the principles and process had proven to directly benefit anyone looking to make a winning career change and to move into more fulfilling and rewarding work. Winning Through Career Change is written from the perspective of people who want to make a conscious choice to change career but are unsure what to do next and how to make it happen.
“Can you imagine how would it feel to wake up each Monday morning in the knowledge that you have an exciting and enjoyable week ahead, doing work you love? Wouldn’t that be just great?”
Most People Are Unfulfilled in Their Jobs
The sobering statistics of research consistently shows that 1 in 2 people feel they are in the ‘wrong job’ and 2 out of 3 are unfulfilled in their jobs. Therefore, millions of people are unhappy and in the ‘wrong job’ or career. We all know people like this, don’t we? They are forever bemoaning their lot, but never do anything about it or just accept that this is the way is has to be… after all, you don’t have to enjoy your job do you? Or do you?!
Maybe You Recognize These Feelings?
The reality is that only a small percentage of people ever take a ‘leap of faith’ and muster the courage, determination and conviction to take positive action to pursue a career change. You might think this is just a special or elite group of individuals, but the reality is there is nothing stopping you from joining them…. and I can show you how.

Backed with case study evidence, I will show you how you can change your thinking so you can learn that you do have CHOICE and that you can take control of your career and life – not just now, but for the rest of your working life. Just think how good that would be.

Practical Career Change and Life Management
A number of years ago I established that there is a definite process to achieve a successful career change. By reading this book you will transform your life if you are looking to change career. You will feel energized; develop a real sense of purpose and focus.
People I work with tell me ‘that the clouds will lift’ giving you clarity, self-awareness and a target to aim for. You will be much better equipped to know what is important to you in your life and career moving forward, understand what you have to offer an employer or what you can offer as a business owner, to sell yourself effectively and above all know what it takes to make a successful career change or transition. Once you have developed this inner self-awareness you will be in a good position to take the learning and knowledge you have gained into your new career, whatever you decide to do.
