New surroundings offer fresh opportunities and can be extremely beneficial to you both personally and professionally Sophia Lorena Benjamin Having lived in three countries, adjusting to new surroundings is something at which I have become quite adept. Over the course of my life, I have relocated quite a few times and have become a fervent advocate of periodically shifting locations. New surroundings offer fresh opportunities and can be extremely beneficial to you both personally and professionally. Ultimately, making such a decision can be extremely difficult and frightening. But it can also be overwhelmingly positive. As such, here are a few benefits for you to consider: A new change maintains continuity Discovering a new city is one of the few pleasures of life that are unique. When made an offer to relocate for work, the best part is that you will already have a job when you arrive at your new location as opposed to landing in a new city jobless. Of course, moving out of your comfort zone into a totally new town and lifestyle that's unknown can be quite unsettling and ruffle quite a few feathers. Especially for those relocating without the security of employment. Thus the very knowledge of relocating within the same trusted company will help you settle into the new surroundings with a little more ease. This transition will assist you to focus on the positive aspects of the new life in a new city. Choosing your target market There are many countries around the world that are well-known for attracting �and employing � large volumes of talented workers. For those who consider themselves unfortunate to live in an area where there is not enough opportunity to succeed in their preferred field the decision to relocate is comes easily. Most people who consider relocating do so with the motive to move into a town or city that provides the necessary infrastructure to build a successful career. New place, different approach Office dynamics vary from country to country and requires a period of professional and personal adjustment. Businesses across the world might operate in a similar manner; however, how they approach challenges can vary dramatically. Make a fresh new approach Relocation can also be considered if you are not evolving in your current position or maybe even suffering from some form of burnout at work. Such a move has the potential to offer your career and your health a great shot in the arm. Even if you are relocating within the same company, a new regional setting may open doors that were otherwise closed. Humans are creatures of habit: it is easy to fall into a routine that is both uninspiring and unproductive. Globalisation is in Today's businesses are truly global. A Regional Director could be based in Dubai and a CEO in Paris. With technology at everyone's disposal they are able to efficiently and affordably communicate, and physical locations become irrelevant to the way business is managed. Today's communication technology allows people to move further away from one another with no reduction in efficiency. More and more, companies are choosing to overlook physical distances and are much more willing to have multiple locations in different parts of the world to improve business and set up multiple offices. Relocating can be one of � if not the � biggest decisions you will make in your life. Spend sufficient time weighing all your options in order to be able to justify your final choice. Evaluate all the positives and try to minimise the negatives else relocation can become a very stressful and difficult decision. (The writer is an image consultant)
