No Bad Turns

At times, you may regret things you have done or directions you have taken and look at them as wrong. An alternative is to see your life and career as a journey of many trails and turns. The key is to keep going. If you have a failure or make a mistake, it may be leading you somewhere positive that you did not anticipate. Or, if it sends you in a direction you do not want to go, you can course-correct and learn from the experience.

Try developing a long-term, less self-critical approach to what happens on your career path. In doing so, you maintain your momentum, self-confidence and positive point of view.

That Elusive Passion

passionJamesDeMerspixabayMany people have told me that the concept of “finding your passion” stops them in their tracks. It seems so big and they are not sure how to get there.

Finding your passion starts with your intent to be happy in your work and life. If you follow what makes you happy, you will have a great compass to guide you. It is a step-by-step journey of uncovering clues as you go along. The only thing that can sabotage you is giving up.

If you have not yet found your passion, make your happiness and fulfillment a priority. Commit not to being miserable in your life or work. And, be willing to change. You may have to go out of your comfort zone and it may take some time – it’s worth it.
