I would describe my administrative career as great, important, fulfilling, and fun! What would you say about your career? From my perspective, I believe that anyone can have a rewarding, fulfilling career. The question is “how can each of us create a great career so we can enjoy “A Great Day’s Work?”
Your career choice is important. In fact, it’s critical to your overall happiness. Chances are you will spend more time at work than at home or with family and friends. Therefore, it’s essential to align your interests, skills, training, and passion with a career that you will enjoy each day. Your happiness at work can help a business thrive as well as contribute to the success of the person to whom you support. In return, our happiness can have a tremendous impact in our own personal lives–both in relationships and personal wellness.
We should have a desire to understand our unique particular role in the workplace and where it fits into the big picture. We should desire to want a fire in our belly, one that is driven by a purposeful career supported by commitment and passion, and not just as a means to survive.
When you look back at your life, will you have lived up to your full potential and made the professional contributions to the world that you were capable of, or will you be holding back and have regrets? Let’s avoid any regrets by owning our career and creating a path for career success.
In Whitney Johnson’s book, Dare, Dream, Do, she shares that remarkable things happen when we dare to dream. Are you dreaming? Are you dreaming big enough? Over this past year, I’ve been doing quite a bit of dreaming and it feels amazing to now be doing the heavy lifting to make those dreams come true.
