How To Safely Pursue The Career Of Your Dreams

Career Directions - Career Development - Career ADD
70
  This is not an article about how to find your spiritual path. However, this is an article that will not sugar coat the fact that finding your true career direction – the one that represents who you are as a person, requires going inside for the answers first. By that I mean allowing yourself to dream the big dream and connect with the part of you that wants to have it all… and defines precisely what that is.   How often have you heard that defining your...

Career Assessments and Career Happiness II: Connecting the Dots

Building Careers - Career Guide - Successful Careers
77
  I recently wrote on Career Assessments and Career Happiness at Masters Channel. In it I explained that the trouble with many of these assessments are that there is no personal involvement or inner process that involve an individual seeking guidance in the results other than checking yes or no to a question – or another limited response.   I recently had an “aha” moment with a client who was in the process of identifying  the top skills she feels...

  It seems the world “focus” comes up a lot lately in the media, emails, conversations - basically just about everywhere. Perhaps it is the Universe’s way of telling us that it is time to pay attention. Focus, or lack of, seems to be a recurring theme among us Career ADDers.  Our thoughts are constantly tripping over themselves, coming at us from all directions and sending conflicting messages.   For those of us with Career ADD, one of the more...

How Childhood Stories Can Lead To Career Happiness

Choosing A Career - Childhood Story
64
  When you were seven years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?   Believe it or not, taking this nostalgic journey back to a simpler time may be exactly what you need to begin the career defining or career transition process.  Why?  Because your instincts at that age, while play acting, before the “shoulda, woulda, couldas” began to impact your choices (hint – someone else’s influence) are the first clues to our natural career...

Do Career Assessments Really Lead To Career Happiness?

Career Happiness - Career Explorer - Help Me Find A Career
87
  When I first began my career as a Career Counselor, I remember attending a conference for our profession held in Sacramento close to 20 years ago. One of the workshops was a debate on both sides of the effectiveness of career assessments versus self-assessment and introspection.   While I have taken and given many assessments, I have never been an advocate of its use, with the exception of the Self-Directed Search by John Holland, which I use in a very limited capacity,...

Negative Words to Eliminate From Your Vocabulary

Eliminate the Negative - Words to Avoid - Spiritual Well Being
71
The words we use set the tone for our interactions in our day-to-day life, as well as alter our personal mindsets. Have you ever met a “Debbie Downer,” who seemingly only uses negative language, bringing everyone around him or herself down a little bit? Nobody wants to be that person. Wouldn’t you much rather be a bright spot in others’ lives, bringing happiness with your optimistic attitude? The words you choose to use can determine your mood and outlook on life, as...

How I Survived Cancer...

Survive Cancer - Live Passionate

  After a what seemed to be a routine tonsillitis operation, I could not understand why the doctor had called me back to his office so soon.  Little did I know that I was in for the surprise of my life. Yet, today, I can still hear the words echoing out of the doctor's mouth: "Steve, you have cancer of the throat, and 8 jelly bean sized cancerous tumors in your lymph nodes in your neck" cut and dry. Just like THAT he uttered these words:   You have less then a...

My Journey Down From The Mountaintop

The Mountaintop - Feeling Uncomfortable
116
  I remember feeling quite uncomfortable in my early teens. I realised that I thought differently to my peers (or at least those that were prepared to vocalise it) – that I wasn’t so ready to acknowledge the dubious ‘authority’ of government and medical institutions or the ‘truth’ that was being presented to me by the media – and that all that seemed to matter to me was 'divine service', or my concept of it, at least.   What...
