Why is it that after all the dangerous jobs we do in the military, or the crazy things many of us do in our free time, that we are scared about transitioning back into civilian life? We’ve been wearing a uniform and taking orders throughout our entire young adulthood. We willingly sacrifice our individuality in service to our country, and honorably so. But soon you’re not going to be in the unit anymore, and I’m here to tell you that civilian society is not waiting to step up and automatically fill the void that will be left in you without your unit, your “tribe.”
Transitioning out of the military is scary because we aren’t ready for it. We don’t know what we are transitioning to. We expect the military or some PowerPoint presentation to do our transition work for us, and we haven’t taken the time to decide or discover what we’re really about.
At this point you are probably asking yourself: What do I do now? Maybe you already know what you want to do after the military and you know you need act on your ambition, but you’re not sure what to do, and you’re worried you may miss opportunities because of uncertainty. But worry no more, Author and Coach Scott Tucker created Be Financially Fit for just that.
“Don’t worry about any past financial mistakes. Yes, you need to deal with them, but I am going to teach you how to see that those mistakes were valuable, and with that value comes opportunity.“ Said Scott.
There are few steps in achieving your transition goals. The first thing you need to do right now is to face reality. We need to know exactly what we are we working with ― that’s all. Don’t overthink it. You are exactly where you are financially today. And realistically, you’re exactly where you need to be.
The second step is not to think of budget, but to think of profit. You need to be profitable! And you need to reinvest your profits back into your personal brand.
Third, you need to set your intention. You have to decide to be committed to do what you need to do, so you can achieve your goal. Now that you know what you want to transition INTO, set a long term goal for your transition out of the military. Pick a date. It’s okay if it changes! Wake up every morning and review your intention, and the date you set for your transition, while you’re getting ready to go to work. Is it still the plan? Still the plan! Or, nope, I need a new plan. Okay, cool. Change it. Either way, you have made a choice and created a new intention. Use your intention to give yourself the strength you need to make tough choices so that you can be profitable ― NOW ― in the business of managing the Brand of YOU, because when you are profitable, you can say YES to opportunities that will get your closer to your goals.
