In this video coaching newsletter I discuss an email from a viewer who has a good job working for a bank, but he does not like his job. He has many interests, but not any one particular passion he wants to pursue.
He is unsure of how to figure out his purpose. He wants to become more confident and often finds himself feeling weak and insecure. He asks my opinion on what he can do to figure things out.
“When you don’t know what you really want to do with your life and it seems like your interests are constantly changing, you should take lots of chances and try many jobs that appeal to you. Most new jobs will seem fun and interesting for about the first three months. If you get bored and no longer feel challenged or excited about your job after only a few months working it, then it’s time to move on and find something else. Many careers and jobs will not be what you expect once you start working them. Your ability to find something you really love and your true purpose in life, is directly proportional to your ability to deal with change, uncertainty and being flexible and adaptable. When you find your true calling in life, you will love it so much that you would do it for free. It won’t feel like work and you won’t get bored of it either. Only when you truly love something, will you have the desire and discipline to make the level of effort required to truly master it, and become the best at it. Becoming a master at something you love is what enables you to be highly compensated for it. Why? Everyone wants to work with the best, and those who can afford it will always be willing to pay for it.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
