  • When you enjoy the nature of your work, your potential for career fulfillment skyrockets. — Career Life Coaching
    give us energy rather than sapping it away We all have things we have to do in life that sap energy so we must balance them with things that create more energy for us One of my clients shared that she just didn t have enough juice at the end of the day to do anything but go home eat something and either zone into the TV or go to bed Susan is only 24 years old way too young to be feeling that way at the end of the day I asked her to think about the last time she felt really energized in her life She told me it was when she was acting in community theater three years ago Had she tried out for any parts since No she was too exhausted from working which is why she came to see me in the first place She figured she needed a new job Sometimes it is not the job it is the lack of balance in our life Susan needed to get in touch with her passion again She needed to feed the muse inside to get that fire going in her belly again to be excited and enthused about something in her life It was quite evident that just talking about her experience in the theater raised her energy level I swear her eyes sparkled and she became more animated as she talked She left our session with a spring in her step and a promise to start looking for play auditions Within a few weeks not only had she identified a play she was interested in she tried out and was cast in the lead role Even though the rehearsals required a two hour commute four days a week after work for months Susan persevered The very act of engaging in her passion fueled her through her work week I had the great joy of attending her play a few weeks ago and seeing her alight with joy as she masterfully applied her craft The play is now over but Susan is fired up to find more opportunities to act It doesn t need to be how she earns her living but it needs to be in her life She does administrative work and thought it was at odds with her passion Now she is looking at administrative positions within the arts media and entertainment communities Who knows she may find an admin position with a theater company and have an opportunity to expand her role What energizes you Identify it and do it Who knows a new career direction may evolve from your participation in YOUR passion If you want some help with this see 4 Ways to Discover Your Passions Related posts Work Labor or Love The Key to Fulfilling Work Look Inward 4 Ways to Discover Your Passions How to Have Meaningful Work Filed Under Featured Finding Your Passion Tagged With balance career energy job Passions work Yes Send me the e
