Itas truly amazing how many of us lose sight of what we once were planning on doing with our career or worse yet have difficulty in describing what our ideal job would look like. I have spent my career listening to people say how dissatisfied they were with their jobs and careers. When I ask them what their passion is they often cannot answer what that could be. Do you know what your passion is for an occupation? Are you living the life that you want? Are you employed in a position that is unfulfilling? Are you looking for a career change? Have you been a victim of downsizing? It has been said that the only true success in life is to have lived life in your own way. What would life be like if you lived your life in your own way? When was the last time that you thought about it? Did you have a dream like most of us as you were growing up to be or to do something and life got in the way? Wouldnat it be wonderful if you could get up tomorrow and go to work in a position where you would feel as though you are contributing something to the organization? Or being employed where you are appreciated for what you do? Or better yet, work in a position that you know you are making a difference? Life is too short to spend time in a career that is not fulfilling. Too many people ask themselves what kind of job or career would be best for them. Why is it that we focus on the awhata rather than the ahowa? Well, it is possible, but you must make it happen. You canat wait for employers to come to you. You have to take charge of the direction of your career direction yourself. What is your rationale for reading this book?
