Career Change By Finding Your Passion & Purpose

Most people know the famous Gandhi quote: “Be the change you want to see in the world”.

But how about this one:

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever”.

How does that apply to where you are in your career today?  Are you doing what you love?  What legacy would you like to leave? Perhaps you have been wondering your whole life what your life purpose is.

Lucy Whittington, who runs a program called ‘Being A Business Celebrity’ says it is vital that you “find your Thing’ or passion, whether this is for your career or your new business. You need to stand out from the crowd to secure the new career and to make it a success.  Many people have been in their job for several years and no longer know what their passion is or what work would make them happy.

I believe my life’s purpose is to help people find their ideal career.  I deeply feel that we should all do work we love and if we pick a field where there is a market, we can create the career of our dreams.  However, how do you go about finding your passion if you have no idea what it is? As a career coach, I have tried and tested processes that I take my clients through, either as a group or as individuals to reveal their passion and purpose. It’s just a question of taking the first step and investing in yourself to progress your career.

Or do you need to give yourself permission to find your passion or to work in your dream career?  Do you feel guilty even thinking about it?  I know it’s hard to put yourself first when you have obligations and responsibilities to others.  But it’s okay for you to put yourself in the spotlight and find out what makes you tick and know what’s important to you at a profound level. 

It’s only when you are working from your authentic self will you be leading a happy life.  Gandhi also said:

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”

If your career is not congruent with who you really are, you are likely to be dissatisfied with your working life and this lack of fulfillment will have a knock on effect on those closest to you. When you do work you love and get paid well for it, you and all your loved ones benefit too.
