Is your career path really ‘you’?
Most of us grow up thinking about what we want to be when we grow up…
Only this usually means focusing on what we’re planning to do versus who we might actually want to ‘be’!
And so, as we get older we start identifying ourselves in this way i.e. by what we ‘do’...and then telling people who ask that we’re an accountant, or a builder, or a consultant etc.
Now I don’t know about you, but I have always struggled to define myself in this way…
And yet, what we ‘do’ is probably where we spend a majority of our time, and that old saying ‘you are what you do!’ still has a fair amount of truth to it.
So why do we struggle to define ‘who we are’…by what we do?
Maybe it’s because for many of us, ‘what we do’ has less relevance than we would like in terms of representing who we really are.
Take the person who has always followed the career pathway they believed to be ‘right’ one, only to figure out somewhere along the way that it’s not really what they wanted to be doing at all.
So now what?
Turn back, start again, or try to reconcile continuing along a career path they know in their heart of hearts is no longer right.
Or what about the person who is ready to go all in and give it everything they’ve got, but is still trying to figure out exactly what that might be.
Maybe they don’t feel especially passionate about anything, or they’re still unsure about where their true talents lie.
Or maybe they had answers in the past, but now they’re not quite so sure about where they’re going – and so they feel stuck!
And then what about those people who do feel clear about where where they want to go, but are filled with self-doubt and lack the clarity or confidence to turn it into a viable reality.
Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who’s currently feeling ‘on-purpose’…and if so, congrats!
But if not, then you’re not alone, and in fact you’re in good company alongside a majority of the population who are all still trying to figure it out.
And for those who are still struggling to figure out how to align more of who they are, with what they do, it might be time to unlock the true source of your own fulfilment and discover where your unique gifts and talents lie.
Because once you can become clear about exactly what this means for you, you will have discovered what truly lights you up which will allow you to design the career that you want, on your own terms.
