“Choose a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life”
We’ve all heard the quote – and many of us have ignored it for:
◭ The bright lights of city life
◭ The prestige of glamorous sounding jobs; or
◭ The common theme that marries most of these together – ego. What we think will impress, versus what truly excites us.
If you’re feeling lost in your career, there are some powerful questions you can ask yourself which will up your self-awareness and help you re-align your life:
◭ What do I love doing?
◭ What would I do if money was no object?
◭ What would I choose if the expectations of others didn’t matter?
◭ What legacy do I want to leave?
◭ Who do I most admire in the world and why?
But HOW do you actually narrow down your options and find a hit list of jobs which combine your interests, skills and drivers?
Here’s the magic bullet.
A simple quiz that will take you a mere 5 minutes to complete and produce a comprehensive list of job options, a description of each and salary expectations, too. Mine was spot on, with options like lawyer, teacher, psychotherapist, social worker, careers advisor.
So if you’re feeling lost, confused or don’t know where to start, start small and get some big ideas here!
And next time you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, remember:
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive”
