Once you have come to realise what that genuine desire is, and have ensured that it is consistent with your personal values. Then all you have to do is simply to move in the obvious direction that leads towards your desire.
The 3 Pillars of Career Success
You can start by reading several self-help books or listen to motivational cd’s and subscribe to career related newsletters. There are loads of information out there about the right way and the ultimate solution etc. Hey, I have even written some of them and I also publish a newsletter and I would be glad to have you buy them and subscribe to them. But, you are really no different from any of the so-called Guru’s or from me.
In fact you have all the same potentials and unless you are mentally or physically impaired, then you can make you career as success story all by yourself, if you so desire. All you have to do is learn and follow the Three Pillars of Career Success.
Point 1. Nothing happens until something moves
Point 2. Become internally who you want to be externally
Point 3. It is not the journey itself, but the destination that is important
Career Coaching is simply Career Planning… With Help and Motivation
There are never any “quick solutions” to life’s many problems, including career problems. There are only gradual improvements. When you search for solutions, you are wasting precious time and energy, which you could instead have used to make several small but highly important improvements. Following a simple plan of incremental improvements, such as the “Six Step” SECURE career coaching strategy, will always prove to be far more efficient and profitable than any “quick solution” fix as frequently advertised.
Every journey and career move, begins with a small step and continues step by step until you reach your destination. However, once you are there and have enjoyed the sights and experiences, you will feel the urge to go to somewhere better. That is the natural journey of life and it is a journey that never ends, and which consists of many different phases and travels, which will take you to various places.
To effectively move forward in your career, you will have to keep looking forward and you will have to regularly look up towards your points of destination. However, in order for you to arrive successfully, you will have to look most at what is directly in front of you. This is essential so that you can steer around any obstacles and avoid any pitfalls. Thus you should only look up at your point of destination, in order to keep your general point of direction.
The problem most people have with their career and life, is that they look to the past for causes and to the future for solutions. Thus they go through life and career with one leg stuck in the past and the other leg ahead in the future. As a result… they are “urinating” on today’s opportunities!
If your daily actions is build upon a “future vision” that is based on some “utopian” idea. And if your current re-actions to challenges and problems are based on finding causes in your past, and what has happened. Then you will be using those causes as excuses for your current problems and recent failures. Well… is it then really a mystery, why your current career situation seems stained with “yellow”?
Referring back to Point 1. “Nothing happens until something moves”, then that simply mean that if you genuinely want change your career or specific parts of it, then you need to take action. You will need to move your life and your career in a new direction Today! Planning and research is good, but too much planning and research is just an excuse for delaying actions due to fear of failure.
Referring back to Point 2. “Become internally who you want to be externally”, that that simply mean that you have to have the self-discipline to change yourself and your life. Do not allow yourself to fall into the trap in which you pretend to yourself and others that you do not know what to do or how to do it. You already know what you need to do and you know how you can learn to do it, SO STOP Wasting Time and Just DO IT!
Referring back to Point 3. “It is not the journey itself, but the destination that is important”, then that simply mean that Whether your journey is constantly fun and exciting, or at times seems long and hard. Then it is important to realize that it is not the specific phases of the journey that is important, it is the arrival at your chosen destination that is important.
Your Career Development
Every choice you make affects your life and career, whether for good or for bad depends entirely upon you. You will know exactly what choices to make, if you just allow your values to lead you towards your goals. Start by focusing on what you have achieved in your career and you will soon find yourself feeling good about yourself. When you feel good about yourself then other people will also feel good about you. Your career will only move in the direction you lead it and it will only move at a pace equal to the time and energy you put into it.
