You Deserve/Breaking Through Barriers
Career counselors typically distinguish three different kinds of work: 1) jobs, 2) careers, and 3) vocations. It's important to know how you view your existing professional situation before moving forward with improving, redesigning, or completely changing your career path. A job is something we do to pay the bills. A career is a more meaningful trajectory that helps give our lives meaning, no matter what particular kind of job we find ourselves doing at a given time. When we feel 100% inspired by what we do, as though we're not even working but just having fun, we've entered the realm of the vocation (literally "calling").
Whether you're looking to move from one job to another, make adjustments to your career trajectory, or discover or monetize your calling, having a fresh set of eyes to look at your situation is valuable. Sometimes, doing the same thing for many years makes us lose perspective on our own value and the gifts we bring to those we work for. Other times we flounder, moving from one entry-level job to another, caught up in the immediate need to make ends meet, and lose sight of what we really love. I've been on both ends of that spectrum, and in every area in between. Let's take a look at what you want for your life once basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter are met.
By choosing to place your attention on this area, you'll find out things about yourself that perhaps you didn't know before, and learn to leverage your existing skills in new ways.
