Lessons Learned From a Major Career Change

Your purpose in life

Your purpose in life

... has very little to do with your job. Your purpose is to unlock and fold in who you are becoming with who you already are. The activities that force you to grow are your calling. Learning from those activities is your purpose.

Your life purpose is way too big to be filled by one role, or even one long career. If you choose wisely, your job can point you toward your purpose.

Creating your career

Most people never make a conscious decision about their careers and end up at a certain place, due to external factors and present opportunities. Their career path wasn't carved out or planned.

Creating your career is something that most people don't think of at an early stage when they are not sure about themselves and the world around them.

You Decide who you become

Here are Five Steps that can create your career:

1. Analyzing yourself.

2. Identify your industry

3. Improve your basic, universal skills

4. Start from Scratch

5. Continuous Self-Development

Self-analysis

When you analyze yourself, instead of pondering over what you are not good at, find out your strengths and sharpen them, turning a good skill into excellence.

Changing careers
You and you alone are responsible for creating your own future. 

Time to give serious thought to this life-shaping question: What exactly are you going to do with the rest of your life? There has never been a better time than right now to change the course of your life and that means changing your career.

Start with honest self-assessment
  • Analyze your current skill set, training level, and accomplishments to date. 
  • Write down the aspects of the work you liked and what tasks or things you disliked
  • Explore different career options. Investigate new fields, industries and potential careers. 
  • Interview individuals who work at those types of jobs, or in fields of interest to you. 
  • Look at growth opportunities, salaries, benefits, education level and then determine the job title to target.
Change from careers
  • Use your transferable skills. You have acquired abilities from previous positions.
  • Use your strengths. Incorporate your talents into any position you choose to go after.
  • Get new skills. Study the industry you want to enter. Take some courses so you can more quickly enter the field.
  • Many people prevent their own success. They find excuses, or blame others, for their own failures or mistakes instead of learning and improving from them.
The decluttering process
The decluttering process

To live a simple lifestyle, you’ll need a simple living space. Focus on keeping things that you value deeply, and toss things that you don’t need any longer.

Giving yourself time will ensure that you are intentional about what you keep and what you discard.

Minimalists live intentionally

If there is something in your life that you don’t love, change it. Cutting out the things that aren’t serving you is the first step for creating the life you want.

An exercise that really helps is to write down what an ideal day would look like for you in five years time. Then work toward that goal.

Applying minimalism to your relationships

Going minimalist also means spending time with only the people you want to spend time with and focusing your social time on people who lifted you up.
