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 telling people who ask about us 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 ring 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 capturing 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 for them.
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 unsure about where their talents lie…or maybe they had answers in the past, but now they’re not sure where they’re going – and so they feel stuck!
And what about those of us who do feel clear about where where we want to go, but are filled with self-doubt and lack the self confidence or the clarity we need to turn it into a viable reality.
So maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who’s currently feeling right ‘on-purpose’…and if so, congrats!
But if not, then you’re not alone, and in fact you’re in very good company alongside a majority of the population…who are all still trying to figure it all out.
In all my years of working with those who are struggling in this way, people always seem to ask the same question…“how can I do what inspires me to create a successful living (life)?’
It’s not always easy…but it’s most definitely possible if you can simply unlock the true source of your own fulfilment and discover where your personal brilliance lies.
Everyone is brilliant at ‘something’ but what does that mean for you?
And how can you leverage this in a practical sense to reclaim your sense of purpose and start re-directing a less than satisfying career?
Knowing what you stand for is power, but being crystal-clear about how to leverage it in a practical sense is ‘genius’!
That’s why I developed my ‘5 Keys to Discover Your Brilliance’ for those who want to finally discover what this for themselves so you can find the clarity and confidence you need to make the changes you want.
