“This is my job and I’m good at what I do,” says Blake Beus in his article called Strengths-Based Approach to Better Productivity and Workplace Culture. “That is a pretty powerful statement,” I thought. How do you find a job that you like and you are good at it too?
Rachael Tulipano says, in her article called 5 Reasons to Find Your “Why” In Your Twenties, that it is important to “be true to who you are.” She goes on to say, “the worst thing you can do is chase dreams that aren’t yours. Remember, your life purpose is your passion. Don’t be persuaded by what others believe is best. Your life is yours and yours alone. Make finding your “why” about what you want. Allow your true colors to shine through and guide you on the best path for you. We all know what’s realistic and what’s not for ourselves. Take ownership of those feelings and make them your mantra to live by.”
“I don’t really want to have a million jobs to find a job where the true me fits in,” I thought.
Kavetha Sundaramoorthy says that while on your path to finding a job where you can be the true you “don’t worry too much about making mistakes. It is better to have tried and failed than to not have tried at all.”
It may take a little while to find a job that fits the true you, “think and analyze your decisions carefully, but once you feel reasonably sure you have made a good choice, just trust yourself. Be bold and go forth into the wilderness. Whatever happens, you will have gained an experience from it that only the courageous can boast of.”
How many jobs have you had on your path to find the right one? Leave me a comment and let me know.
