Finding Your Dream Job
So you want to change your path in life and find that dream job... Problem is you don't even know what that is. You know, your soul does you have just forgotten and need to be reminded what makes you happy, puts a smile on your face. Something you would do all day and look forward to the following day. That is your calling and here is how to find/ remember what that is.
* Go back to what you wanted to do when you were a child or teen. Before society "set you straight" what did you want to be. If it was something that seems a little out there find a way to turn it into a "real" job. For example if you wanted to be a super hero you could turn that into costume design, comic artist, video game designer or ?? the options are endless.
* The ol' switcheroo... What do you not like about your current job. Write it down all the things that you dislike about your currant job or situation and then write down the opposite and that will give you a list of what you do want. Go after that.
* What did you figure out and then life and bills got in the way. Many of us know what we want to be doing and are afraid to chase it down. What if.... Yeah, yeah, what if it all works out better than you ever imagined.
Start small if you are afraid to take a big leap. Commit to doing something small towards your goal each day and see how it grows into your new happy life. That is what I am doing right now and it is working out better than I thought. Give it a try and see what happens to you...
Remember that as you grow and your lifestyle changes your dream job will change. You might start out wanting to be a Real Estate agent and then have children only to discover that you would be happier staying home with them so you start a in home daycare. As your children grow up you change your mind again and do something else.
When I was thinking about selling real estate years ago I made appointments with a couple of the agents in town just to talk to them about what it takes to be a good agent. I think this is an intelligent step to take before you put in the effort and education to pursue your dream job.
