3 Steps To An Ideal Career
Knowing that the job you currently have is not what you want is one thing, but finding a job that brings you happiness is another. Somewhere in that gap, Fast Company relays that there is another difficulty–identifying what you enjoy and how that transforms into full-time work. These three steps can put you on the right path to career fulfillment.
While unemployed, the article reports that one man realized what he truly loved to do. But when he finally found a job, he lost clarity and couldn’t figure out how to take what he enjoyed and bring it to his new job. As the article states, “the process of closing that gap includes gaining clarity, taking action on what matters, and leaning into the fears that hold us back. ”
So the first step to pursuing the right career is to gain clarity on what you should focus in on. Unlike the man mentioned in the article, don’t lose sight of that. Ask yourself, “what do I hate NOT doing?” Once you know what your answer is, you know which direction to begin to move towards.
The next step is to clearly define the world you imagine. Take 10 minutes to discover what you would ideally want in the world. When you have your own definition of the world you want to be in, you have a better understanding of who you are. You know why you wake up each morning and how to make the right decisions.
The last step is to get rid of your old thoughts and replace them with new ideas. Write a list of the negative thoughts you have that create negative behaviors in your life. Take each thought and put a new, positive spin on it. This process will take time, but changing your thoughts will begin to show in your actions.
As the article concludes, when you take on these three steps, you’ll begin to find that what you dream for yourself can become reality.
