Doing something that you love for a career is absolutely a possibility! Some people out there may be skeptical because a job is a job right? And sometimes we definitely have to hustle and work jobs we don’t really like–and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing in regards to ultimately doing what you want. So where do you start setting and achieving your career goals especially if you aren’t doing what you are passionate about?
It’s easy to get bogged down by negativity. We live in a world with lots of depressing news in the media. The best thing to do is building your positivity. Think good thoughts and wish people well. Watch inspirational videos and hang out with people who are accomplishing what they want in life and live life in a positive way.
Focus on the Career you want
Even if you aren’t at a job that you don’t like (or feel you aren’t headed down the right path of a career you want. First off, assess why you don’t like your current job–what don’t you like about it? Now think about the people you work with: is there anyone that you can learn something from? Is there a leader or manager that can help you in anyway to find another opportunity that you like? You will be surprised that something amazing can come from something miserable!
Write down your career goals now!
Take a few moments to write down what you want from your job. Be truthful. Now, write down what you like doing. Do you like art? Do you like technical work? Do you like being social and networking? You will be surprised how easy it is to find a bit about what you really want to do by writing it down. Now think about how you can start working towards the career you deserve.
Help others even you don’t know what you want to do
Still not sure what you want in a career? No problem. One of the easiest things to do is go out and help others with their dreams! Reach out to people in your community and even online! Ask how you can help people with their careers and achieving their goals. Work with them and you never know…you may find out what you are passionate about and ultimately find your career!
