On my way out the door to a thing, but I'm first dropping in to share some food for thought on a Friday morning.
It's a quote I stumbled on again recently (from the motivational speaker, Mel Robbins) that I keep coming back to again and again....
You need to hear this loud and clear: No one is coming. It is up to you. It has always been and will always be up to you.
You may never feel inspired or clear headed enough to seize a moment, but you have to force yourself to do it even if you don’t want to. Nothing is changing unless you make it change.
The best time to act on a feeling you have is right now. Thinking about it just makes it harder.
If you are waiting to figure out what to do with your life until you have more time, make the time to start your search right now.
The longer you wait, the less likely you will act.
As a career coach who's focused on helping my students create their own game plans and get some ownership over their futures, I sometimes find that the best thing I can do is to give you permission.
So here it goes:
We hold ourselves back from applying to the jobs we want. We hear that it's a 'tough industry to get into' and so we never bother trying. We don't even look into how we would figure it out, because we assume we would fail.
But here's the thing. All those dream jobs you think are too silly to chase after... Hundreds of thousands of people are employed in those positions every year, working in multi-billion-dollar industries.
Why not you next?
No one is coming to save you. And that's a good thing. Because it means you're allowed to step up to the plate and go do it for yourself.
Rooting for you always...
