How do I Choose a Career?

What are some of the factors that you need to consider in choosing a career?

It does not really matter if you are 18 and just entering college and thinking through what major to go after. Or you're in your 40s or 50s and looking to make another mid career shift into doing something a little bit different that aligns with your passions. Regardless of what age, these 3 different principles to apply when choosing a career.

How do I Choose a Career?

The first thing that is important to think through are your Natural Strengths.

These can be things you don't always see right away but they are the things that come easy to you. It's the things you can work effortlessly on for hours at a time and still have plenty of energy.

One of the ways that you can identify whether you're not working in your natural strengths is when you're constantly tired or frustrated or drained, or worn out with your work.

That's a good indicator that you're working in an area that's not your strength and so it's taking a lot of mental and physical energy from you.

If you want to really understand and discover your natural strengths then ask somebody who knows you well, you might often times be surprised with the answer.

The second thing to take into consideration is you Personality Type.

This is where often times where we go wrong because we follow where the money is instead of concentrating on what we are good at. We think this will be a good stable job, it will provide lots of money for my family and all we see is the lifestyle that we want to create. But what happens is, we end up frustrated because we're trying to become something that we're really not.

Lastly we need to keep in mind is our Passions or Interests.
