This is certainly a natural question to ask and yet it’s one that can also keep you in place. Since there are no guarantees about how the change you’re considering will turn out, the challenge is to manage the fears that come up for you. If you move through the process in a grounded way, paying attention not only to the information you uncover in your research (the pros and cons of a particular option) but also to your own truth and what feels right to you, that will guide you well. Ask yourself: Do I know enough to keep exploring? If the answer is yes, then as we say in Now What?®, life will show you the rest. Also ask: Will I regret not trying? If you decide to go for it, rather than worrying too much about making the right decision, entertain the idea: What if it works?
