Do you know your skills? I hear it often: “I am not happy about my career or about my job”.
I always wonder, why is that people expect to do the same thing over and over and expect to obtain a different result or feel any different.
I am a believer that you are the only one that can turn things around. Here 3 simple but powerful steps to make a positive change in your live:
1. Take an inventory of your current skills.
Focus on your strengths; are you a people person, are you more analytic or you are comfortable working with numbers…the same analysis applies if you think on terms of your technological skills, are you a follower or a leader.
2. What makes you happy?
Although a simple question, this one is a hard one to answer: “If you could choose a career doing something that makes you really happy, even if you do not get paid for…what would it be?
3. Make a match between these two previous steps…
What it would take you to get there (what you love the most) and start developing a plan to make your dream to come true.
I am not saying it is going to be easy; but it’s not impossible. It takes determination, courage, and to admit there is something you do not know.
One thing successful people have in common (coming even from different backgrounds and industries) it’s they never stop bettering themselves, learning who they really are. They are always reading, learning something new from their business and from just about everything. That quality it’s what keeps them sharp.
You can read a book, take a college class, an online class, attend a conference or be a self-learner.
