Key Ideas

Identify issues

Determine where you are in your career. 

Identify how you got there and why you might lack fulfillment in your professional life.

Establish the core values

These are the non-negotiable values you want to be known and remembered for.

Once you have identified your values, look at your personality, skills and interests to make sure that they align with your current occupation.

Ask the big questions

These are questions like “What do I really want?” or “Should I change careers?

The more grounded you are with the answers to these important questions, the better able you are to reach your true goals.

It is a journey

Once you start down the path of finding meaning in your work, the more open you are to the journey, the more opportunities you will see around you.

Be open to the journey itself, rather than obsessing about the destination. Finding purpose can be full of many detours as well as success stories.

Find a noble purpose

Develop a plan to bring your core values into every day life.

It gives you meaning and reasons to do the jobs you do.

Formulate an “end game”

Examine what you want your career to mean when it draws to a close.

Locate resources

Resilience

It is our ability to survive and flourish through our traumas, stressors, responsibility shifts and challenges offered by life.

Self-Respecting

To be resilient, you must develop the ability to self-soothe when things get tough.

When things are in a particularly stressful place, you must tap into your will, motivation, and pliability to continue moving forward.

Emotionally Driven

Resilient people are not needy, desperate or overly reactive. 

They carry a relaxed attitude and view rejection as a new direction opportunity. They don’t get down when challenged, they commit to getting up. They do not depend upon others for our resources.
