Do you go to work each day and feel like you are going to play? Would you like to trade your current employment for such a dream job or career?
It seems that most of us just work in jobs that are only the best options we see around us at the time. Maybe this lack of pursuing our passion is the reason that overall productivity has consistently fallen over the past years. The decrease is not by a large amount but it does steadily fall each year or in the best case of describing it, productivity remains stagnant. And when productivity is not happening and dreams aren’t happening, then we see limits, failures, and decreases in many areas of our lives.
By choosing what is our best option at the time and not pursuing our dreams or by not going to find those dreams and digging them out of their hiding places, we have may be choosing laziness and complacency. Refusing to step out of our comfort zones and to stop pursuing our dreams can also cause us to become detached from our passions altogether. And that is indeed called SETTLING. Selecting leads to a slow death of dreams and this comes from our own complacency and self-imposed limitations; our own choices.
Many of us have been blessed with people who challenge us to expand our world and challenge our securities. If this is not your case and you are not so lucky then it all falls on you to challenge yourself to seek more than just settling. Yet ultimately, blessed with people who push us or not, it still boils down to our own choices. We are all responsible for our own actions and destiny even when we have people to encourage us so we still must act.
Here are three tips that will help us in finding our dream job and begin the process of making things happen:
Challenge ourselves to move beyond our comfort zone and take action for ourselves.
Recall things in our past that made us happy. Dreams are things that we do with passion and joy and are usually things that we do in our free time.
Begin the process of planning our new career. This process includes researching the things that moves us and laying out a plan on how to get there.
These three tips are just beginning steps in finding a dream job and making it happen. We can only begin at the beginning. Check back frequently as more blogs will be posted on finding your dream job and making your dream job a reality.
