Ten Steps Towards Finding and Experiencing
Your Vocational Passion!
By Craig Nathanson, Author of P is for Perfect: Your
Perfect Vocational Day
- Define a purpose for your life. Without your own
purpose, you become easy prey for what others want.
- Figure out what you prize most in your life.
More importantly, decide how you know when you are
following what you prize most and when you are not.
- Know what is your perspective of yourself. It's
too easy to listen to what others think of you.
- Realize what is possible for you in your vocational
life? So many of us focus instead on what's impossible.
- Figure out your place in the world. So many
of us take on roles which are not right for us.
- Get a fix on your attitude. What position do you
take as you face each day? Your position can
move you either toward or away from what you want
in your vocational life.
- Know what you are passionate about? Which activities
give you energy, fulfillment and a sense of meaning
in your life?
- Learn to describe and visualize your perfect
vocational day? Like the great athletes, if you can
visualize it, you can achieve it.
- Realize what are you doing in the present to close
the gap between where you are and what you want in
your vocational life? Sometimes success is just the
difference between thinking about taking action and
actually doing something.
- Allocate your day to actually living your vocational
passion. Most of us decide to wait until we retire
to start doing what we love; and then life suddenly
gets in the way. Don't wait. Do it now.
