How to Choose a Career that Will Truly Inspire and Fulfill You

Inspiration and fulfillment are yours to choose.

In my past few posts, I’ve been talking about how to get clear about what you really want to do with your life.  If you are reading these posts, it’s likely that you are at a transition point in your life, preparing to make a career choice that will affect you for many years into the future.  If so, I recommend that you do four simple things I’ve been talking about before you make a decision: discover what you really want, create the list of careers, do some informational interviews, and begin an apprenticeship

It’s Your Life to Create

It’s important for you to realize that your job right now is to really see what’s possible out there and to fully explore that for yourself.  If you don’t take these steps and really claim your life for yourself right now, you’ll just get carried along in the current of our culture and find a job that pays reasonably well and you will stick with it (or not) and try to distract yourself from the still small voice within you that keeps asking, Isn’t there something more to life than this?

You don’t have to let that happen to you.  But you do need to have some courage and some trust in your own heart and its ability to guide you to what will truly be fulfilling and satisfying for you in your life. 

A Resource That Will Really Help

My self-help program can really help you with this.  It’s all about helping you get clear about what you want and then letting go of the negative beliefs and other inner barriers that hold you back from believing that it’s possible to achieve your dreams.  It uses EFT to help you let go of limiting beliefs and feelings such as the belief that you’re not good enough, fear of failure, worry about what other people think of you, etc.  It helps you connect with the unconditional well-being inside of you so you can let go of the fear of reaching for your dreams.  You can learn more about my program at YourInspiringLife.com

Take the Time You Need to Make a Decision that Feels Right to You

I really recommend that you take these steps before you decide on a career.  Discover what will truly fulfill you in your life.  If you can find enough courage and faith in yourself to do this, you will have taken a huge step towards living a life of happiness and true satisfaction.  You will spend about two thousand hours a year in whatever career you choose.  So make sure you take the time to make an informed choice that feels right to you.

Embrace the Adventure

Enjoy this process of discovery.  You’re in an exciting phase of your life right now where you are opening yourself to the idea that you can live a life that truly inspires and satisfies you on a deep level of your being. 

I hope these ideas have been helpful to you.  As always, I would love it if you would leave me a question or comment below and let me know what you think. 



Time for a Change: Wanting Something More in Our Lives and Careers


Feeling the urge to take a new path?

What’s the next step for me in my life? 

For most of us, this question will come up many times over the course of our lives.  And don’t worry, when it does, it’s a good thing.  It usually comes up at major life transitions when we are feeling the inner urge to make a significant change in our lives: graduating from high school or college, choosing a major, changing relationships, children leaving the nest, or anytime we’re really feeling dissatisfied with our current work or life and feeling the urge to do something else that feels more satisfying and fulfilling. 

It’s Part of the Natural Process of Life Unfolding

This is all just part of the process of adjusting our lives to reflect the changes that happen within us over the course of our lives.  If we are open to it, we can change and grow so much throughout our lives.  Our interests and passions change and we get clearer and clearer about what matters most to us with every experience we have.  That’s why people often change careers a number of times in their lifetime.  I believe that this urge to change comes from a deep internal need within us to do something that really fulfills us in our lives.  And the way that manifests for us is likely to change over time as well.

The Old Way of Doing Things has Changed

In times past, men would typically have the same job for 40 years and then retire on their pensions.  Their wives would stay home and take care of the children and the home.  But in our current world, all of that has changed.  Men and women can make whatever choices they want in their careers and change as many times as they like.  The uncertainty of this social shift can be intimidating at times but it also frees us to listen to our hearts and embrace whatever inspires us.  With these expanded possibilities, there is a much greater desire within us to do something that really feels good to us, something that truly uses our unique talents and abilities, something that we are passionate about, something that feels good to do every day.

If you’re reading this post, I’d say you are feeling that internal calling to live life that feels more passionate, authentic, and fulfilling.  Trust that instinct.  It’s a good one.  In my upcoming posts, I’ll talk more about ways to reconnect with that source of inspiration within you and discover what you really want to do with your life.
