Transitioning from Teaching Job to Coaching Job

I am currently in Life Coach certification and I’m looking to become a full-time coach for students. In the meantime, while building my business I do need some sort of income since I will not be making money for quite some time. I am a former teacher and find myself applying to teaching jobs because I know it will pay the bills even though it is a field that I’ve been trying to leave. How do I know if I am trying to be practical or if I am acting from a scarcity mindset?
