“I could also use career counseling like little “Johnny” as I never have figured out my own career” - from hundreds (or thousands) of parents who are getting their students launched in college
“Sure, I wish I could do something that I enjoy but it just won’t pay the bills” – from most people
“I wish I wouldn’t have listened to “some random person” who gave them faulty career advice” – many other people
“ABC is my hobby and I’m afraid that I could not make a living off of it “ – somebody speaking from fear
“I love my work and am refreshed and I can’t wait to wake up every morning to get started” – said way too few people
Examine the above statements to see if you know somebody who could relate to any of them. Chances are you do know somebody as I have heard the above statements continually throughout my entire career as a Career Counselor, Advisor and Recruiter. It makes me very sad to think that over 78% or more of our population are just going through the motions in the world of work and not excited or enjoying their work. That is also not good for our society.
The type of work that you do creates your lifestyle and we build our lives around it. Doesn’t it make sense to step back and figure out what excites you and interests you and build your life around it instead of building your life around something you do not even enjoy! Perhaps you do not feel it is possible to achieve so do not even try to determine otherwise.
If this article sounds critical I want you to know the reverse is true. I believe in you. I believe that you deserve to do something meaningful and fulfilling in life. I have watched people get jobs that they love. I personally have had many positions that I love and want the same for you!
Regardless of your situation it is worth examining. You are worth it. You are worthy. You are capable of finding your niche in the world. There are sacrifices and drawbacks to every single job so you need to consider everything very carefully but it often comes down to the choices that we make.
I am passionate and purposeful about helping you or your student. I have seen the results and helped people build great careers. Many of the people who have endorsed me on LinkedIn have done so as I have personally assisted them with their careers. Is convenience or location a problem for you? I work virtually using all our great technology via Skype, telephone, e-mail and instant chat so location is not a barrier. I can help you regardless of where you live and have effectively helped people secure new jobs in numerous locations.
If money is your concern, I am offering a FREE initial consultation during the fall season until 11/25/15.
I would love to help as I believe in making the world better one person at a time. It is both my passion and my purpose!
