Do you have a dream job? Are you able to be true to yourself and still bring home a paycheck? If your answer to these questions is no, I would like you to know it is possible to do both.
If you think you have to be poor in order to be true to yourself in your job or career, I would like to invite you to reconsider.
The best career advice I have to offer my clients is to find a way to do the things they love and get paid for it.
I know it is possible to create your dream job not only because I have done it for myself, but because I have helped hundreds of people do the same.
One of my biggest soap boxes is the one about not giving up the things that bring you joy and satisfaction in order to pay your bills.
We don’t have to choose between our truth and our livelihood when it comes to our career.
So many people set aside their truth in order to support themselves and their families.
But this does not have to be the case. You can use your best skills and talents in your work.
You can do work that resonates with your personal values.
You can have a career you are passionate about that allows you to do the things you love doing. And you don’t have to sacrifice money to do it.
You are doing yourself and the world a disservice by assuming there is no way to do what you love and still make a living.
So, what is it you are missing in your career?
What would you like to feel like at the end of your workday?
Many of the clients I work with feel they are not expressing their creativity as much as they would like.
It’s important to clarify that creativity is not just about painting, sculpting, or some other artistic endeavor. Problem solving, brainstorming, and coming up with new solutions are all forms of creative expression.
You really can design a career based on your truth, that lights you up, takes advantage of your best personal skills, and still allows you to support yourself and your family.
It may not be the easy route, but it is the route that brings the most fulfillment and satisfaction, so the challenges are worth the effort.
This is what I help people do.
Is your work situation frustrating you? Do you hate your job, but have no idea what to do instead? Attempting to navigate those waters without support is not fun (yes, I do know, but that’s another story). I’m excited to announce that I’ve created The Job I Love Toolkit, with all the resources you’ll need to finally clarify how to get paid to do you.TM To be the first to hear more details, join the VIP Wait List.
And if you know a friend or neighbor who could use hearing the advice in this article or needs The Job I Love Toolkit, please forward this to them.
