For every career opportunity that we accept it provides us the ability to discover more about ourselves. Each new company, position or responsibility gives us the opportunity for introspection and reflection.
As you put your best effort into each opportunity you will find aspects of each position that appeal to you and aspects that don’t appeal to you. You will also begin to interact with others who have a passion for this job which allows you to determine if you have the same passion or not.
Sometimes, you will be put in a position that may not be your strongest and be given a superior who is not supportive and team friendly. When this happens to you it is imperative that you realize your strengths and what you offer. A rough job and poor manager may lead you to begin doubting your ability, don’t let this happen!
The worst possible situation is if you begin to let your mind run away with negativity. The negative mind has a powerful negative pull on your energy, self esteem, and self worth. If this were to occur your ability to improve your situation at your current job or to have the energy to find a new job becomes negatively affected. You will begin to doubt your ability to offer anything positive to any employer.
Imagine yourself in a career where you are more energized when you leave at the end of the day then before it began. A career where you don’t hate Monday’s just because they are the beginning of a new work week and a career where happiness is abundant.
These opportunities exist in the world. Finding your passion for your career will save a lifetime of mental anguish that will also generate positive results in other parts of your life. Reflect on what your life would be like if you were to get up and enjoy every day. Where would you be emotionally, mentally and physically with that type of positive energy?
Take the time you need to find a passionate career. Take the time to determine what changes you can make in your life for the short term to have success in the long term. Take time for yourself; because once you take care of you, you are able to take care of others.
