19 Jul Why It’s Up to You to Decide On Your Career
The world is saturated with opinionated individuals. Many think they know best, and not just for themselves, but for others, too. At Work You Want, we believe that individualism is the best route to happiness, and that you can’t let others choose your career path for you.
It’s time to take ownership of your existence. It’s time to empower your decision-making capabilities. It’s time to be your own guide for all things in life, your work included. And Work You Want is here to help. We invite you to dig deep into your own thoughts and aspirations, choosing a career you want, with the opinions of others moot.
Sift Through the Voices Telling You What to Choose
We’re not here to say that the opinions of others are outright wrong. Many kind and generous individuals only want what’s best for their loved ones, and your family and friends likely know you well enough to offer some sort of sound advice. Moreover, many experienced professionals in your network may have valuable words of wisdom to lend. Colleagues and mentors are familiar with your desired career path and can often lead the way.
But with so many voices telling you what to do, which ones should you listen to? First, you must determine your own career and lifestyle preferences. Only then can you truly absorb the advice of others.
Prioritize Your Own Inner Voice
While many people will have a lot to say about your actions and decisions, what’s most important is what you think. Why? Well, the truth is that you’re the one who’ll have to live with the consequences, good or bad. These other people are only outside perspectives hoping to have some sort of influence, and regardless of what they think, what matters most is your own happiness in your career and life as a whole.
Knowing you have a choice to make on your own, and being aware that the consequences are yours to live with, what comes next is action. But how do you get started on making not just any decision for your career, but the right one?
Become Empowered By Testing Out Your Options
As is turns out, you don’t have to make a major decision about your career path all at once. You can test out blooming passions. You can become inquisitive, curious and explorative beyond the confines of your current workload. You can see what works for you, what doesn’t and what may just be your next working journey.
Some people take classes and further their education. Others interact with professionals outside of their existing network by attending meetups or conferences. Still others take tests and work with mentors like the ones found through Work You Want, ultimately determining a path of action for the work they want to pursue.
