9 Ways to Find Your Career Path When You're Feeling Lost

9 Ways to Find Your Career Path When You're Feeling Lost
From Recruiter - March 2, 2017

1. Get in Touch With Your Inner Child

I have found that following your inner childhood dream normally points to what you are supposed to be doing in the world. As children we see no limitations, so we gravitate toward doing the things we dream about. When we become adults, we forget how to dream because the troubles of life consume us and we just do what we need to do to survive, whether we are purpose-filled or not.

2. Follow the Excitement

While youre job hunting, it will be apparent that the companies and job descriptions that excite you are steps in the right direction. Ultimately, you want to land a job that doesnt feel like a job to you. It needs to be something thatll excite you and bring out your passionate side.

3. Track the Tasks That Matter to You

As you go through your workday, keep track of activities that make you feel fulfilled. Youll start to recognize your interests and values, and that can steer you in the right direction.

4. Exploit Your Gifts and Talents

We all have areas we excel in. If you can exploit what youre good at, you will have a high chance of success and fulfillment. When this happens, it is then time to sharpen your skills in order to be the best version of yourself.

5. Apply Your Passion to Something That Pays

Bills wait for no mans (or womans) success, so its a good idea to pick a career path that also pays the bills. For instance, my dream job is to live off revenue from my novels. My actual dream job is to make a living writing website copy, blog posts, and social media statuses for clients. I thoroughly enjoy both.
