I struggled with my career uncertainty for years until I landed in a field I love. That’s why I can so relate to the angst many feel early in their careers, and often, many years later.
Being a mindful change educator and entrepreneur, I now use a lot of my natural skills, interests, and what I do speaks to who I am as a person.
Who am I?
I’m someone who passionately dislike corporate culture and I love seeing someone who once struggled, finally “get it.” I’m also creative and have been interested in human potential and philosophy since at least 9 years old. Minds like Socrates’ really does it for me!
One of the best things I discovered along the way to finding my niche, is that you can define/write your own career…
many of the old career rules no longer apply!
The career that’s right for you may not even exist yet, but you always know what feels right and what’s a struggle.
Quizzes like the one the Buzzfeed team took (in the video below) may help, but these are what I found to be the most helpful guidelines to finding something you’re going to love and do well in.
- It should use a lot of YOU and get you excited on multiple levels.
- A lot of the skills required for that career should come easy to you.
- It should align with your integrity, values and temperament.
- If the money is good, that’s great, but it shouldn’t be your first reason for choosing a career.
- If it helps other people – or could potentially help a whole lot of people – then you’re sitting on a potential goldmine!
