Research tells us that we will change careers a number of times in our lives. Whether you are at a point where you are finishing with school and entering into the work field, facing unemployment, or just looking for different opportunities – there always comes a time where you study and examine your career path. Is this the way you want to go? Do you enjoy your work? Do you look forward to getting up and going to work in the morning? Do you feel productive? Are you looking for meaning in your work or is your primary motivation the money you make at the end of the month? All these questions should be addressed at some point in your career so that you can realign yourself towards further personal and professional prosperity. At times, we need to step back, refocus and refine our career outlook. Looking back in order to move forward empowers us to discover our authenticity, affirm our talents, and reclaim our own power.
If you are unsatisfied with your career choice, it can have a huge impact on your mental and physical health. Most of our day is spent at work or commuting to and from work, so it is absolutely vital for us to feel that all our efforts are worth it because we love what we are doing. For many of us, working towards a greater good, finding meaning in what we do for a living, feeling productive and resourceful for our community and family is something that is very necessary for us to feel satisfied. Oftentimes, when we find ourselves stuck in a rut we feel lost and frustrated with the mundane and repetitive weekdays, which don’t even allow us to enjoy our weekends fully.
At Hissah Enrichment Center, we understand the need to feel satisfied with our career in order to be generally happy and healthy in all other areas of life. In our specially tailored one-on one format, we help participants who wish to re-examine their career choices to focus on their core strengths and interests to better prepare themselves for successful career decisions.
