What is a career choice? The definition for most is an ‘activity pursued as a livelihood’.
In exploring your career options, an in-depth career assessment of skills, values and potential (to name a few) will define where people can best use their skills and abilities while at the same time expressing their values and attitudes.
The theory of career choice is based on the premise that people who choose to work in an environment similar to their personality are more likely to be successful and satisfied.
Has the career you have chosen or about to embark on been based on what you love doing, or what is expected of you? Family or peer pressure can often push you into a career choice that does not meet your career objectives. What do I mean by this?
Individuals many times take on the opinions, likes and dislikes of others. They become locked in by trying to please those around them until they completely distance themselves from their real selves.
Burn out, resentment, anger and illness eventually begin to manifest within the individual because subconsciously they feel trapped in a mental cage. Their chosen career has become a burden and the individual finds it increasingly difficult to find meaning in life.
Playing victim serves no purpose though. Attitude determines altitude, so liberate yourself one step at a time with a career coach who is trained to help people identify and achieve their goals.
In many cases a little momentum is all an individual needs to re-direct their career situation.
A career coach assists individuals to discover what they really want to do and then develop a strategy to achieve it. I always encourage people to do something they are passionate about, something that they love. I’m passionate about helping people play full out and helping them move forward with purpose in their life, helping people realize their true potential.
A career coach will help you to:
• Discover and understand who you really are
• Identify and clarify what you most want
• Create and develop strategies for how you will achieve your goals
In the words of Guan Yin Tzu: “Don’t waste time calculating your chances of success and failure. Just fix your aim and begin.”
