How To Land On The Career That You Want
For the majority of us that start out in the career path, we inevitably end up in a job of some kind or another. I say this because very few people of maturity are in the same jobs they started, why? Because we all have a built-in desire to be successful, as time goes by we get more desperate with our results and we move from one job to another, thinking this is the one, this is my career only to end up in another working environment that gradually wanes until we start looking for another job or career.
Some of us are lucky (or unlucky) enough to start our own business, we work all the hours under the sun and moon and think that this is it, this is going to make me, I will be happy and have no worries about bills and the future. Sadly, it’s not quite like that. If you’re into manual labour you generally end up with no money and all sorts of ailments like back pain, trapped nerves (ouch!) or even the odd limb missing. All from slogging your guts out 24/7! And if you do find that job you always wanted?
Are you still there? I’ll bet you’re not or you won’t be in the near future. Why? Because you aren’t getting the appreciation you feel you deserve, you know you do a good job, and you know you could do it better but something’s stopping you, stopping you from progressing and stopping you growing.
Why is this? Have we been brought up to be like this? For the average person we weren’t taught how to look after our bodies or our minds at school, we were doing homework on Math, English, Language, Geology and Physics to name a few, all good if you knew what you were going to do in life! Society didn’t teach us how to make money or be happy or to look after ourselves, it just taught the basics so that we could fit in.
But fitting in doesn't work!
We all have that built in desire to be successful, to be better than we are, it’s only with us for a certain period of time and you know when
it’s running out, it’s inbuilt, we are human and it’s natural. You have to take a look at yourself and almost go back to school, your school! Do it the way you want to be taught not how society taught you.
Your school, what is your school?
It's anything you want it to be!
You just need knowledge, only THIS TIME its knowledge you want to learn and you can get fascinated in. You can work any amount of hours in the day as little or as much as you want, but the big difference is that you will be engaged with your new venture, you will want to work all the hours life allows (and your family) and the appreciation will come from yourself.
Your life that has passed by (which goes too quick in my book) has gained you a wealth of knowledge that YOU know, that you can pass on to others that need that information and they can teach it to others as well.
Live to be the person you’ve always needed in your life and you won’t regret a single minute of it.
