Taking control of your career involves aligning your gifts (abilities and skills) and your unique qualities (personality) to your purpose. It does not mean that you won’t feel fear or that everything will be rosy. However, it does mean that even in the midst of fear or adversity, you know that you will be fine. Being proactive in your career requires a shift in your mindset that you are good enough, smart enough and qualified to become everything that you were designed to be.
Discover the thing that feels like “home” for you.
Do your due diligence. Take inventory of your abilities, skills and what makes you unique. Find your purpose. What do you love to do? Talk about? What would you rather hear about more than anything else in the world? What would you do with your life if money was not a factor? What are you best at? Everyone is a solution to someone’s problem. What type of problem do you enjoy solving? These are clues to your purpose.
A wise man said that “your gift will make room for you”. Align your gifts to your purpose and you will be a force to be reckon (smile).
Have a great week!
