YOUR SOUL WANTS TO THRIVE AND GROW
Powerful questions that help you find your why and craft a career that lights your fire
“What lights you up?” Is probably the question I most ask my clients when we start working together. Many of us can agree with Tony Robbins when he stated in his book “Awaken the Giant Within”, that “the quality of your life is a direct reflection of the quality of the questions you are asking yourself.” So, this suggests that if we change the questions we ask ourselves, we can have a huge impact on the quality of our life. Isn’t that interesting?
The same happens with our career. There is one very thought-provoking question that can lead you towards finding your raison d’etre. As a career coach my mission is, on the one hand, to help professionals identify their strengths, talents and skills and on the other hand, help them design a roadmap of their competencies, experience and expertise, in order develop a strategy in favour of crafting a career around them that feels very much on purpose.
We all want a career that energises us as much as an energiser bunny on coffee, where we feel enthusiastic, vibrant and alive, happy to get hands-on with our day to day tasks and duties. At the end of the day, work is going to fill a large part of our lives: on average we will spend 90.000 hours of our life at work. The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you consider is great work and, for this, we need to love what we do. So, if you haven’t found that yet, do not settle and keep looking.
Is what you are doing right now bringing you joy, fulfilment, and satisfaction?
If you are feeling stuck, you are probably not doing what lights you up. Therefore, I will leave you some insights as to how to start answering this question. Clues about what lights us up are all around us, and they can be very important for your next career move. This should help you get close enough and shape your answer to this powerful, and difficult to answer question.
