How do you navigate your life?
Did you ask yourself this? Why did I start by targeting your thinking paradigm? Because our mindset is interrelated to our success. It’s the root of misery or victory; what is your definition of success? Why do you want to become what you are doing?
A person with a growth mindset believes that one may progress with enough effort and persistence and develop specific skills with practice. They learn from mistakes and constructive feedback; If you think you can’t do something and don’t have power, there is no room for a rewarding career. Instead, work on your mindset as it acts as a roadmap for your job. Grow as a person daily. You can benefit from several self-help books and reshape your subconscious mind according to your goals.
Purpose = clarity in career
After embracing a seeking mindset, head towards what is your purpose? You can avoid the questions like ‘what am I here for? And ‘what is life’ by discovering this one aspect! Finding your purpose can clarify the fogginess that clouded your way to a flourishing career.
Statistics have shown people in their 60s, after devoting a considerable period of their life, haven’t discovered their purpose yet. Even after accumulating wealth, building a happy family, and a prosperous business, they are still unclear about their meaning.
Let’s delve into what is the purpose.
My bestself101 defines purpose as your personally derived, authentic set of life aims that guide your behavior, pull you into the future, and give meaning to life.
Unwind from every distraction of life and sit in a peaceful environment; if you have none, no worries, we need to focus on ourselves. Now, ask, what should I do in my life that gives it meaning? Am I born with talent? If yes, then what is it? And how can I utilize it for the betterment of people and myself? How can I lead a life that has some spark in it?
Every human is gifted with the blessing of talent; you must unearth it and facilitate it.
We gravitate toward things we are good at
I’ve attended several webinars on how to decide on a career, and only one of them presented me with a genuine motivation for ‘self-reflection,’ which helped me immensely! We may think this doesn’t help, but believe me, you have been gifted with a natural talent enclosed in an envelope. It would help if you uncovered that to discover your career.
Contemplate what you are good at. It gives you a strong understanding of your calling. Therefore, analyze your skills and excel in your field through a growth-oriented mindset. Moreover, if you want an accurate review of your attributes, ask friends or family; it will enable you to shed light on your strengths and job industries.
Work-based learning allows you to discover more about a career
After deciding on a career, begin with a work-based understanding; it will facilitate you to extensively analyze your field by partaking in touring workplaces and fairs, conducting formal interviews, and internships. A real-world experience offers you a profound insight to determine and shortlist better career options.
Internships develop your skillset
During an internship or unpaid job experience, you will explore many career options, practice and form your skillset, and train for a rewarding career in practical life. Furthermore, this valuable experience can significantly help you create a creative and comprehensive resume for a bright future.
Career development is a life-long process
Every person has a unique career journey; it is a lifelong process. If you feel uncertain about your career decision, you can consider taking help from a professional career coach. For instance, Ashley Stahl quit her spy job at the Pentagon and commenced as a career coach. You can listen to her ted talk; it’s truly inspiring!
The anxiety and regret will consume you inside, but you can always restart and build a better career no matter what age or condition.
