3 Tools for Career Transition
Do you really want to improve your career? Or change careers altogether?
Are you tired of all the internet "gurus" telling you that all you have to do is sell their products to get rich?
That's not what I'm here to do. Let's face it, some people are not meant to run an online business. Some people don't even care about getting rich.
But everyone wants to be happy in their career. In this article I will show you some tools to help you achieve that goal.
None of these are new ideas, but I hope that putting them all together in one place will be as useful to you as it was to me.
First, you must believe that you can do anything you want.
It doesn't matter what your age or education is. It has been scientifically proven that you can improve your brain! Your brain and how you use is the most important tool you have.
Use it and your opportunities will be unlimited.
To learn more about the fascinating scientific research being done and how it all relates to your goals visit Science for Success Systems and sign up for the free newsletter and introductory home study course. Or even better, buy one of the CDs for a more in-depth look at motivation.
What is it that you want to do with your career?
A lot of people don't have any idea. Are you one of them?
The second key to finding happiness in a career is to find something you have a passion for. Emotion allows us to more easily achieve our goals.
The more passionate you are about your career goals, the quicker you will achieve them. Take a good look at your current job and see if there are any aspects of it you would like to explore more.
Or brainstorm ideas to make money from a hobby you enjoy. A personality test may be one tool to help you to find areas that appeal to you or that you may excel in. A personality test will
tell you whether you would prefer working with people or ideas, for instance. MindFrames (www.initforlife.com, affiliate code: starhopper ) is one personality test that gives one free report and also offers more detailed reports you can purchase.
And finally, you must set goals.
Most of us don't know how to set goals properly. Neuroscience has discovered that there are scientific "rules" to goal-setting if you want them to work.
You've probably heard most of them before from the self-help gurus.
They must be positive; they must be in the present tense; they need to be written down. But
now we know there are physical, scientific reasons for them. Once you have set your goals, you must find a way to follow through with them.
I have found that a software program does just the trick for me, allowing me to track each action
step and to set up to do lists right all in the same spot.
I recommend GoalMaker. GoalMaker offers a free trial version or a free paper version as well as the full, paid version.
These tools will help you in finding and achieving the career you want. Study them, apply them, and see the difference they make in your life.
