|The beauty of a career crisis
If you had a million dollars then you’d be free to do what you want to do. Right?
Maybe not! With a million dollars you could have a lot of things but you still may not know what to do. When you really know and appreciate who you are, you will know what you want to do, even with a hundred dollars.
Who you are matters!
Our main task in this life is to be aware of who we are, how good we are, the good things we’ve created, what our potential is, and to understand these things, admire them, and be proud of them. Other people sometimes admire us, tell us how good we are, what our potential is, how good we look in those pair of pants. Our task in life is to do this for ourselves.
When we know ourselves, and appreciate ourselves, then we will understand our wishes and how to wish. Until then, we don’t know how to wish—we wish for things rather than things we want to do.
When you understand, really understand, that who you are matters, you will begin to wish for things you want to do.
Become empowered in your career & life choices.
You’ll feel confident, excited and free to make great career and life choices, by accessing a structured process to understand yourself, effective tools to guide you, and experienced professionals to accompany you.
A career crisis is beautiful. It marks the start of a new and good and fun journey. Fly over walls and cliffs. See a new horizon. Arrive at your own frontier.

|See, I think we have to ask ourselves – and this is corny in a way – what are we doing here? And I’ve become convinced, after a lifetime of asking that question, that we are here to enlarge our souls, light up our brains, and liberate our spirits.
You have to do what you love to do, not get stuck in that comfort zone of a regular job. Life is not a dress rehearsal. This is it.
You’ll gain lasting job security as you become self-reliant, creatively resourceful, and realize that you have unique gifts to offer.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.

By Perri Capell
Question: How should a job hunter find an executive coach or career counselor? Quality people are hard to find, and a career path is too important to be put in the wrong hands.
Answer: The process of finding a career coach or counselor is the same as that for finding any other professional, such as a dentist or personal trainer. Consider what you need or hope to accomplish and then do research to locate someone who’s qualified to address your issues. Continue reading
