How can people have a career that shape them in a positive way?

A hard job may frequently be difficult for employees, however trying to face such obstacles fosters development and increases resilience. However, occupations that demand too much from their workers may result in excessive stress that might worsen your mental health. Especially in times of the Covid 19 pandemic, organizations are struggling, and employee wellbeing is not being considered.

As it’s accurately mentioned, the sustainability of careers substantiates our progress and not the destination. To make your path worthwhile, pursue these experiences which help you learn, develop your passion and discover a sense of purpose during your professional journey

Don’t aspire for a job, Aim for a career

Planning your future and embrace new career might seem difficult, and sometimes you simply don’t know where to start. However, you don’t need to have total clarity or a direction while you think about your career. Aim for a career that matches your abilities, helps you learn, pushes you out of your comfort zone to some level, and caters to your areas of interest. To discover this, it is vitally necessary to understand the positions you apply for and if it matches at least part of your expectations.

Patience is the key so do not push to get there quicker and miss out on the learning. In the desire to try numerous positions, it’s easy to overlook taking time to comprehend and learn. In each new position, learning curve quickly climbs in the beginning, immediately followed by a saturation period when you will hit the plateau. Give time to absorb in the experience before pursuing the next one. Finally, the objective should be to maximize your learning from whatever position you take on before moving on to the next. As you progress and gain experience, you may find that your goal has shifted and that you have discovered other professional routes that you had not considered before.

Find a job that you love

While employment is a necessary social standard, your profession should not be constricting. Simply put, if you despise your job, you will never be happy. You do not have to like every element of your profession, but it should be fascinating enough that you look forward to getting out of bed each morning.

If your job drains your energy and makes it tough to pursue your passions outside of work, something is wrong. You might be working in a hazardous atmosphere, for a toxic person, or in a job you actually despise. If this is the case, the time has come to look for new work.

Role of Networks

It is not the amount of time necessary, but the quality of preparation required to better own the position. You must find specialists who are not affiliated with our organization; the finest in your industry, not only inside your corporation. These dialogues will shed light on the process of developing your own experience map. Each company has its own culture, which differs in terms of how tasks are completed, what is valued, and how employees collaborate. Networks undoubtedly play a critical function in assisting you in obtaining the necessary information or creating the necessary connections. You must connect with seasoned professionals, observe their development curve, and get insight into their accomplishments and disappointments along the road.

Unlearn – Relearn

Additionally, in today’s disruptive environment, you must continually learn, unlearn, and re-learn. While having the appropriate credentials helps open doors, they do not determine success or failure. If you lack the ‘appropriate’ qualifications, the chance may be unavailable to you — this is the fact. However, you should not be discouraged; instead, find a solution to begin small and use those experiences to prepare you for the sought position. Consider a stretch project, training, certification, or internship in your field of interest to obtain a realistic sense of if the field fits your expectations.

Each of us is unique in that we offer a distinct viewpoint to the table. We must acknowledge that no one else shares our unique style, experiences, flexibility and expertise that have lead us to this point. Additionally, we must learn to recognize the attitudes and behaviors that are impeding our progress and how to overcome them.

Make your health a priority

Your first priority should be your total physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. If you suffer from anxiety or depression and believe that counselling might assist you, arrange those appointments into your calendar, even if it means leaving work early or skipping an evening spin class. If you’re suffering a chronic condition, don’t be hesitant to call in sick on particularly difficult days. Overworking oneself stops you from improving, and may result in you taking further days off in the future.

Prioritizing your health does not need drastic or severe measures. It might be something as simple as regular meditation or exercise. You can take up coaching to help you develop a positive mindset.
