What are you looking for? The 3 years following grad school, I had 4 jobs as I tried to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. What did I discover? Sometimes you have to jump around in order to find what you are truly seeking. It can take a lot of guts to leave a situation that is not right for you, especially if you are fighting the pressures from voices around you telling you what you should be doing and that, “you are lucky to have a job.”
Some people think a little differently. They feel that the job is lucky to have them. They understand that they may not be in the ideal situation, but they continue to use their “off” time as “on” time. Time to get on to discovering what they are really passionate about. In my search I’ve done many different things including a stint in a Multi-Level Marketing company. Some may cringe or turn their nose up at that opportunity, but I can tell you first hand that my experience sparked a desire to focus on personal development.
I recommend self-discovery to everyone. It doesn’t matter how old you are, it’s never to late to figure out what you want to be when you grow up.
Two books recommended by Ambassador Bruny for Self-Discovery:
-The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren
-What Color is Your Parachute by Richard Bolles
