Something Missing in My Career?
Are you in a career that doesn't fully satisfy you? Do you want to make a change to a new career or make changes to the one you are currently in? If you answer yes to these questions, please read on. There is no perfect job, but there are jobs that can provide you with passion, excitement, good pay, appreciation and inspiration.
Most people I speak to about career transition don't believe jobs exist with these qualities. Even the ones who do believe in the existence of such dream jobs don't have the courage to make the necessary changes in their life to land such a job. The most important element in bringing fulfillment to your career is your imagination. Imagine what is possible. Imagine what can be achieved. Imagine all that is available for you and your success.
Most people have difficulty thinking outside the box they live in and thus they stay where they are. Go beyond what you know - what is limiting you. Use your imagination to take you where you want to go. Let it be your guide toward your future. This is the first step - imagining that something different is possible. Don't limit yourself and think of how you can't do it - think how you can.
George Bernard Shaw said, "You see things; and you say, why? But I dream things that never were and I say, WHY NOT?"
See the abundant opportunities you never considered and begin thinking about them. Have an open-mind. Allow yourself to be drawn to anything that tempts your curiosity. When you allow yourself to be drawn to toward what you imagine or even your dreams, you'll find that something missing in your career.

Quotes of the Week
While aimlessly waiting for their so-called SHIP to come in and change their life for the better, far too many people miss the boat that could actually carry them to a brighter future. They are often so afraid of testing new waters that they spend an entire lifetime waiting on the shore...Begin your journey now!
~ Josh Hinds
If our young men miscarry in their first enterprises they lose all heart. If the young merchant fails, men say he is ruined. If the finest genius studies at one of our colleges and is not installed in an office within one year afterwards...it seems to his friends and to himself that he is right in being disheartened and in complaining the rest of his life. There is a better path, emerson cried: A sturdy lad...who in turn tries all the professions, who teams it, farms it, keeps a school, preaches, edits a newspaper, goes to congress, buys a township, and so forth, in successive years, and always like a cat falls on his feet, is worth a hundred of these city dolls...he was not one chance, but a hundred chances.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Did You Know?
WALT DISNEY - went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland. Walt Disney also was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas.
HENRY FORD - failed and went broke 5 times before he finally succeeded.
Coaching Tip: Walt Disney was quoted as saying, "All our dreams can come true - if we have the courage to pursue them."
After realizing what he and Henry Ford went through in order to achieve their dreams you begin to realize successful dream achievement is as much about persistence and determination as it is talent. What dreams have you not realized? How many times have you tried for their achievement?
