When you set your resolutions each year, how sure do you feel that you’ll actually make them happen? If one of your goals is to find work that you love, did you make that happen?
Many of our clients come to us when they’ve tried all the things they can think of in their search for meaningful work. They’ve kept plodding away determinedly. They’ve followed the job listing sites and they’ve spoken to people with the aim of networking. They’ve received the well-meaning and sometimes not so well-meaning advice of family and friends.
They’ve kept things going at the job that they’re in currently, even though sometimes they’d rather be anywhere else on this earth than at the water fountain with Mike from accounting.
So when what you’ve been doing isn’t working, what do you do?
“Who ya gonna call?”
CLUE: In this instance, the answer isn’t “Ghostbusters”.
It can be really hard to reach out for help. Yet it’s equally hard to stay in a job that’s just not the right match for you.
The Cardy Career Coaching Team can help you find the work that helps you be happier to get up on a Monday morning.
Just imagine what that would feel like, no more Sunday night dread.
Instead you’d have a feeling that the week ahead was one that would bring just-your-type of challenges and a sense of doing work that’s a great fit with your values.
How would the thoughts in your head be different as you brushed your teeth on a Monday morning if that was your reality?
We’d love to help you get there.
We offer unbiased and expert help that fundamentally changes how you go about finding the work that you’re best suited to.
Watch out for the next three emails where I’ll share three stories of our wonderful former clients.
First up is Andrea’s story. You’ll find out:
Why struggling in your career doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you.
What can happen when family and friends tell you it’s all OK and you’ll easily find a great job (and that just makes you feel bad).
How Andrea found work that helped her to feel like a great role model for her daughter.
How you might be in the right kinda job in the wrong kinda place.
Then I’ll share Polly’s story. You’ll discover:
What can happen when you wander into a profession that’s not the right fit.
How Polly moved from feeling stagnant and stuck to work where’s she’s part of a great team, but also has a high degree of autonomy.
How being told to “pursue your bliss” just isn’t helpful and what is.
Finally, I’ll share Melissa’s story where you’ll find out:
What Melissa did when fears and panic stopped her moving forward to her dream work.
The key differences that working with a Career Clarity Coach can make in helping you discover a rewarding career.
These clients got the results they desired because they made the decision to get some help with a career puzzle that they hadn’t been able to solve on their own.
These were smart individuals who were highly capable. But sometimes it takes more than a “little help from your friends”. (with thanks to The Beatles)
