If you simply don’t know what career would really excite you, I strongly recommend that you take some time out to explore your values and passions. When you discover the job that does match your values and passions, work will become enjoyable rather than something you dread doing. Everyone has the opportunity to choose their own career path and to change it if their current one is not fulfilling them, so only you can decide to stay in a job that makes you miserable, or seek out one that will make your days far more meaningful and delightful.
Finding your passion and turning it into a successful and prosperous career or business requires clarity, commitment and belief. Before you go any further, make sure you have the key to doing what you love. As Marianne Williamson said, your playing small doesn’t serve the world and as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically releases others. Think about it. Besides the joy that you will feel for doing something meaningful, think about all the people who will benefit (directly or indirectly) from your skills, passion and contribution on this planet. Your playing small really doesn’t serve the world. Don’t let any societal “system” or seemingly unfortunate or inopportune circumstances” stop you. They themselves serve a purpose: they invite you to play bigger.
Now, explore who you are, what are your passions and unique skills. You will then know what to look for in a job so that it fulfils you and be excited to formulate an action plan of how to get your dream job.
Once you start asking and answering the right questions you begin to eliminate the poor matches and start to focus on possibilities. Here are five (plus) deep questions you could ask yourself right now:
- What memories fill me with joy? What have I done it in the past to bring myself optimism, good feelings, or positive reactions?
- What one-sentence inscription would I like to see on my tombstone that would capture who I really was in my life?
- If I had to pick one experience that makes life worth living… what would it be? What is the ideal scenario of me experiencing this? (Describe it). Picturing that right now, how do I feel? What emotions are going through my body?
- What is my real life’s purpose? What do I want to have accomplished when I look back upon my life in old age? What would I regret not having tried?
- What do I love doing so much that I would do it for free? What would I do if I had enough money not to work ever again?
