The reality is that everyone can find their best-fit career. No one is exempt. The other reality is that it takes a ton of intentionality, reflection, and effort. Those three things are often in short supply.
I’ve been binge-listening to Dave Ramsey lately and I love the concept that you can’t take a shortcut to wealth. There’s one path and it requires consistency, diligence, and patience. What does it take? Paying off debt, saving for the future, and being self-disciplined.
Why would career be in different?
What does discovering career take? Knowing your values, strengths, and ideal environments for thriving.
Drumming up opportunities for yourself through building your network and exploring potential options.
Improving your brand. Building a platform. Connecting with influencers. Seeking feedback. Refining job-search tools.
This career-search stuff takes actual work.
But, just like with money, a consistent investment over time always pays off.
