Still uncertain what you want to be when you grow up?

A woman graduated from college uncertain about what she wanted to do for a career. While she thought about it, she decided to work for a family member in his business. After several years, she didn’t like the work, still didn’t know what she wanted to do, and wanted to find her own way in life. After we worked together, she found that her passions and core personality qualities would make her a great salesperson. So, she left her current job, moved to the city where she always wanted to live, and got a job selling! She happily loves her job and makes a six-figure income as the top sales rep.

The reality is 63 to 79 percent of employees are in jobs that don’t fit them! So, you are not alone in feeling you don’t know what you want to do. The problem is, knowing what you don’t want to do doesn’t magically clarify what you do want to do. When you are working in a job that doesn’t fit you, often, you will feel trapped and your productivity, job satisfaction and upward career mobility are limited. You may develop mediocre skills, fail to learn the basics required to succeed, and make a terrible boss (unfortunately, most companies reward their employees with promotions and increases in their paychecks – regardless of whether or not they fit the job)!

The challenge is to find work and job options that interest you. Studies show that if you have the interests, core behaviors and thinking styles that fit, you are much more likely to succeed!
