I don’t have to tell you that choosing a career track is a big decision.
So it’s worth putting effort into getting it right.
Which is why I’m asking what’s in your kishkes.
Not what you ate for supper.
But what’s going on, deep inside, where no one but you can see.
That can be a hard place to access, because we often ask ourselves ‘what should I do?’ instead of ‘what do I want?’
And I think that’s a real shame. Your heart knows more than you think. When we begin our journey with an understanding of our interests and talents, we are guided to something that sparks joy and inspiration.
Here’s a fun exercise called Nine Lives that can help you find out what you’d love to do. Go ahead, get a pen and paper and try it out now!
Close your eyes and imagine: If money and skill level weren’t an issue, what would your ideal job, career, or position look like?
Now repeat this nine times as though each life is a completely different world with fresh opportunities.
Did you notice a common thread? Did they involve people? Were you imagining management positions? Were you working from home? Did anything excite you?
I love using this exercise to discover hidden desires that my clients thought ‘nah, this would never be possible’ and watching their excitement grow when I share jobs or fields that match their inner most ratzon beautifully!
If there’s one thing I’d want you to know, it’s that you have unique skills, talents and interests for a G-dly given reason.
Go out there and use them!
