Career Change Made Easier… A Start!
For some… I believe you can spend years feeling unhappy and unfulfilled and it’s not because there’s anything wrong with you.
I also believe not understanding important things about yourself makes it near impossible to communicate or articulate this for yourself!… let alone to someone else.
Career change isn’t only about choice, it’s also about taking responsibility for doing what makes you happy. What makes you happy is when you work from your strengths, right? What are your strengths? Do you know what they are, I mean really know what they are?
Working from your weaknesses… for years and years… isn’t going to contribute to an abundance of happiness and feelings of fulfilment. Chances are you’ll feel like you’re always struggling. Going against the grain. And THAT’S hard work.
I believe it can affect your self-esteem, your self-worth AND drive for excitement and passion in your work. Not because of anyone in your work environment… meaning, I’m not talking about placing blame. This is about knowing you and making the right decisions for you.
It’s been breakthrough experience in personal growth, plus a few other experiences that have helped me create this awareness. The result is relief and a feeling of “hey, there’s nothing wrong with me, I’m just not utilizing my natural strengths.”
You can do a lot of things today, especially with the abundance of knowledge available to you. Here are a few things I found helpful…
