Internship and volunteering: finding your ideal career

Posted on | September 30, 2014 | No Comments

Internship and volunteeringThere is is only one way of knowing for sure what you will really love doing – by actually doing it. This is where internship and volunteering comes in. It is one thing to assume, think about something, read about something, watch it on TV, ask others opinion about it or even interview those that have already done it etc. That will not confirm whether you will really get to like it or not. You may think you will like something and when you finally get to do, you discover you don’t really like it as you thought you would. Read more

Finding your ideal careerFinding your ideal career is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Most of our time on this earth is spent working.

know yourselfA lot of folks have a challenge knowing what it is they want to do with their lives. Some know that they do not enjoy their jobs, but have no clue what they may be good at, or what they would enjoy doing.

momentumNothing in life stays still. We are either moving forward or remaining in one spot (which is actually moving backwards compared to everything else moving forward). Momentum is that force that keeps you moving if you are in motion, or resists motion if you are stationery. Hence momentum can be your friend or enemy, depending on whether you are moving forward or stationary. Read more

tomorrow never comesLife, as we know it is a series of todays. Today is the tomorrow you spoke about yesterday. Tomorrow never comes. Today is within our span of control. We can do something now.

The past is gone. There is nothing you can do to undo what has been done. It is past and out of your control. You have no control over it. Tomorrow also is out of your control. Read more

overcome procrastinationOne of the key reasons we do not act on important activities on our to-do list is procrastination. If we do not overcome procrastination, we will keep shying away from important tasks that will deliver the results we truly need to achieve our key goals. Procrastination derives most of its power from our fear of the unknown. If you stop to think, you often tend to procrastinate on activities you have not done before – something you know is important in moving forward towards your goal, but is not part of your normal routine.

Don't be afraid to make mistakesOne of the bad habits we learned in school is being afraid to make mistakes. When a teacher asks a question in class, we have an answer in our heads but often do not raise up our hands out of the fear of being wrong and the perceived shame that goes with the teacher saying that it is the wrong answer, to the hearing of everyone. This habit of always being right keeps us trapped in a cocoon instead of venturing out, making mistakes, learning from it and moving on to more exciting things. Read more

know-what-you-really-wantThe major challenge most of us seem to face is knowing what we really want. If you do not know what you really want, you will literally sleep walk through life simply going with the flow, wherever that might lead. We do not really stop to ponder or think through what we really want. Consequently, we take random actions and hope for the best. Read more
