Does this sound like you? Do you:
- start out resolved to change your career or work life, then lose momentum?
- want to re-invent your life or have a great idea to move in a new direction?
- get overwhelmed as you begin or before you get off the ground?
- have a new job but aren’t sure how to succeed in it?
- have so many goals that you can’t finish any of them?
- want a satisfying job but don’t know what you want to do or how to get started in today’s world of work?
Most adults spend more than a third of their lives working. Many are working more than 40 hours a week. Technology keeps us connected pretty all the time so even if we are not in the office we’re still checking in to work even on vacation.
Recent studies show that at least 80% of professionals are doing their job just for the paycheck and not to fulfill their life’s ambitions. Most are not fully engaged nor feel satisfied with their occupation and/or employer.
Consider whether you are you working In your job or On your job. There is a difference as when you are engaged and enjoying what you do, you are In your job whereas if there is little or no satisfaction then you are working On your job.
I believe that everyone desires to really feel engaged, satisfied, to make a positive impact, and fully be In their job. The work that you do can become your passion and a source of life giving energy.
So, how do you transform or re-invent yourself and your life? Nowadays some call it a career pivot. If you are currently working sometimes it does not mean you have change jobs or leave your employer. Perhaps, you can make a shift within yourself, your job or company.
Those of you who are just starting out after completing college or school, what do you choose and where do you start? This process can feel so overwhelming that it might paralyze you into doing little or nothing to find and land what you want.
I can guide you and the first step is exploring more deeply what you want to be doing and how you can go about achieving this goal. And your choice needs to fit you and your life criteria. This is what I call a purpose-driven career, which is at the core of one’s ability to enjoy life, to grow and fully achieve your potential while Owning Your Awesome.
No matter where you are in your journey, it is time to get into the driver’s seat and take charge of choosing your destination and the route you want to travel to get there.
