We live in a time where, out of necessity it seems that many people have to take jobs that "pay the bills." The number of people I meet in unfulfilling jobs is alarming. It's a sign of the times and a sign of how quickly the reality of the world's economy is changing. Unfortunately, though, there's a huge price to pay when that's the case. For one, unless you're feeling fulfilled and in sync, that little voice in your head will always be nagging you, reminding you that you aren't feeling so hot about your career. There's a solution, though, that helps to quiet that nagging voice. Pursue fulfillment.

You see, even if you are not fully fulfilled, if you are pursuing your purpose you are "on purpose" and the voice is dulled. Many people view the job dilemma as an either/or sort of thing. You're happy or you're not. That's what keeps people from taking steps forward. Tiny steps, even, that get them closer and closer to feeling in sync.

Fulfilling work that will resonate with you is within your reach. It starts by taking one step at a time. I've worked hard – and even faced a career refocusing – to become an expert and to differentiate myself within the field of Human Resources and Carer Development. It wasn't always easy, and I could have chosen to stay in mediocre but ultimately unfulfilling jobs from my previous career track. My life is much richer all the way around because of the career shift I pursued.

When you're in it, it's tough to see the value in the hard work of pursuing fulfillment. I urge you, though, to get on top of your career and make work work for you.

It starts with knowing your authentic strengths and natural talents and then combining those with something you have a passion for. Please feel free to look at the information on my Career Development services. Let me know if you have questions.
