I had a dream job most people would kill for. Working as a T.V Producer at one of the top networks in Canada, I got to go to fancy events, interview celebrities and hangout on red carpets. Part of me wonders if I’m a little crazy for leaving that job, but at the end of the day deep down something just didn’t feel quite right. I did that job for almost 10 years, and to be honest, it took me a long time to admit that the job just didn’t fulfill me. I always felt like something was missing. There was some disconnect between me and the type of work I was doing. I just didn’t know what else to do with my life and every time I would try and figure it out I just become more and more frustrated because nothing really seemed to excite me.
Figuring out my dream job and doing what I’m super passionate about didn’t just happen overnight. It was a loooong journey, and one that had me in tears A LOT!
In today’s video I share how I figured out what my passion truly is, and tips that might help you discover yours!
Tips on Discovering Your Dream Job
#1: Ask yourself what you currently enjoy about your job (even if it’s just your lunch break!)
When you take time to reflect on the things you like about your job it gives you the starting ground to brainstorm other jobs that have those same qualities. Be creative with this process and try not to be too literal when it comes to your job description. Think outside the box a little. Pay attention to the types of interactions you have with people at work and make note of the things that get you fired up!
#2: Talk it out!
When we’re in our own head too much it can get really cluttered in there. You will be amazed at how much just talking through things with other people can help give you so much clarity. Whether it’s friends, family or a coach! A lot of the time someone can say something that seems so insignificant but there’s something about it that triggers something major inside of you! Sometimes we also don’t give certain thoughts the time of day until we say them out loud. Talking it out can truly be your most powerful tool to discovering your passion!
#3: Have patience with yourself
This was a tough one for me. I wanted to know the answer and I wanted to know it NOW! Who really wants to wait around for something to click into place?! The problem is, you don’t really have a choice. It’s going to happen when it’s going to happen. You can help speed up the process by doing all of these other tips, but at the end of the day you have to be patient with the journey. Putting more pressure on yourself is just going to make you feel more frustrated and it’s actually going to block you even more from having any realizations.
#4: Think about what you loved doing as a kid
I realized this one after I discovered my dream job, and part of me wonders if I had thought about it more, if I would have come to a conclusion about what to do with my life sooner. Think about what you enjoyed doing as a kid. How did you spend your time? What did you think about? How did you view life? There are so many hidden gems in our childhood. You just have to do a little digging to see how those things play a role in your life now.
