Re-Discovering Your Career Passion

Skills-Passions-Buttons- FORD MYERSDo you ever feel like you’ve lost touch with the enthusiasm and passion you once felt about your career?

Remember when you were just starting out at your first job, or you were a recent graduate? You probably thought that any job would be available to you, that every employer would want to hire you. You were excited about your prospects and believed that you had something wonderful to share.

But now that you’ve been in the work world for quite a while and have had a series of jobs with several different companies, have you become cynical or resigned in your work attitude? Are you unsure as to which direction to turn next? As a professional career coach, I have found that this loss of career passion and enthusiasm is very common, and it’s one of my most troubling observations. To address this problem, I developed an amazingly simple exercise.

If you’re thinking, “It’s too late for me.” I’d like to challenge you on that assumption. Allow me to show you how, by performing an internal evaluation and re-visiting your true priorities, you really can re-discover the career of your dreams.
