Other studies show that there will be a shortfall of 100,000 engineers in about four years due to continued demand and retirement. Yet another study reveals that two million teachers will be needed in the following disciplines: English as a second language, math, technology education, bilingual education, physics, computer science, chemistry and Spanish.
But what if your current or future dream job does not show up on any 21st century trend or job market radar screen? Should you just give up or pack it in to merely conform with the inevitable? Hopefully for regular readers of this newsletter, the answer is obvious. But for the benefit of any new subscribers and those of you looking for a little inspiration let's review my Ten Reasons Why You Must Have Your Dream Job:
- Your Dream Job Allows You To Be Your True Self All of The Time It takes a tremendous amount of energy to step into a false persona for work and not be your true self.
- Your Dream Job Incorporates Your Values A dream job will have the same values as you and will not ask you to embrace values that do not resonate with you or to go against your beliefs. If you have a concern for the environment, for example, your dream job will not ask you to be involved with toxic waste dumping.
- Your Dream Job Fits Into Your Life Your dream job will integrate perfectly into your lifestyle and will fit you wonderfully. It will feel like a natural part of you and will not hinder your life.
- Your Dream Job Allows You To Tap Into Your Unique Gifts Everyone has different gifts and qualities - your dream job will allow you to tap into your unique gift and express it fully. You'll notice that work will feel more effortless due to the use of your gifts.
- Your Dream Job Gives You Energy Instead of Draining You You feel energized by your job instead of drained and exhausted by it. You look forward to it and embrace every part of it. You start to notice that you have energy for other things both in and outside of work.
- Your Dream Job Enables You To Align With Your Passion and Do What You Love There is an ease that comes with cultivating your passion. You'll feel as if you're coming to your true home and doing what you're meant to do in this lifetime. As you do what you love, you realize your purpose is being fulfilled and you feel satisfied and comfortable.
- Your Dream Job Helps You To Make a Difference to Something You Believe In It enables you to feel good about giving to your job knowing that you are making a difference in some way and your unique talents and gifts are being used to bring about change to something that is important to you.
- Your Dream Job Is Enjoyable & Doesn't Seem Like Work You wake up every day excited about going to work instead of dreading it. You can have fun at work and feel happy about doing your job.
- Your Dream Job Follows Your Wants Instead of Your Shoulds You listen to your intuition and your heart instead of your rational mind and/or what society and others think you "should" do. As you listen to what you want, you begin to know yourself more clearly. The rest of your life starts to rearrange itself around who you truly are and not who you were supposed to be.
- Most Importantly, Your Dream Job Fulfills You You feel a sense of completion. The work you do, how you do it, and the responsibilities and roles all come together in a way that makes you feel satisfied. You know the work you are doing is having impact and you are truly serving your purpose.
