Some things you should consider when deciding on whether or not you should go to college, go back to college to get a masters, doctorate, etc., start a business and which career or business choice is right for you.
In this video coaching newsletter I discuss an email from a viewer who has many career, financial and purpose oriented questions. He’s recently got a good job and is doing really well with the ladies, but he’s got some major decisions to make. He wants to become a police officer. He also wants to get a four year degree. He already has the option to go to the police academy now even though he does not have a four year degree.
He asks me what he should do. He also wants to purchase a new car and his first home, but he’s unsure of budgeting and how to go about making major financial decisions. I give him some ideas and things to consider on how to achieve his goals and maximize his income earning potential.
“Our true purpose and passion in life often will evolve over time. What you love today, may bore you in the future. The reality is you may end up having several careers and businesses over the course of your life. The one constant should always be doing something you love and have a passion for. If you don’t love or have a passion for what you are doing, you simply won’t make the kind of effort that is necessary to reach your full earning potential. Getting paid for something you absolutely love to do is essential in order to reach the top of the career or business ladder. When your internal enthusiasm has waned for what you once loved to do for a living, it’s time to reexamine what you really want, why you want it, and move towards new careers, jobs or businesses that give you butterflies when you think of doing them and succeeding at the highest level. If you don’t, eventually you’ll just become another clock puncher who earns a living, but who does not enjoy their life. Life is too short to spend the majority of your time working in a career or business that does not excite you. It will shorten your life, sap your will to live and inhibit you from being happy, grateful and enjoying your life.” ~ Coach Corey Wayne
