The secret weapon that can get you out of your rut of just going through the motions at work

Do you want a deeper sense of fulfillment from your work?

 

Who doesn’t right?

 

But, does your desire for fulfillment seem different this time – more intense  - more like “I think I am at a turning point in my life”?

 

We all know the difference between a dry spell in what we otherwise know is good match for us – be that in a partner, in a career or in a job – and down-right famine.  Do you feel closer to famine – a feeling in the pit in your stomach that nags you to do something dramatic to alleviate the pain of starvation for career fulfillment and avoid feeling defeated or doomed until retirement.

 

Maybe you already feel like a zombie at work or in your life – just going through the motions waiting for something to give – something to happen that will zap the answer about what direction to turn into your head and land you gently and safely into the arms of the mother of all career opportunities.

 

How did this feeling happen?  Did you commit to a college degree that you are no longer sure will lead you down a fulfilling path (does the phrase, “why did I listen to my parents” come into your head)?  Did you invest several years into a career that seems to be going nowhere (do you ever think to yourself – “oh, those ungrateful bosses”)?

 

You can get out of this rut – and your secret weapon could be the right career coach.

 

Could you be a candidate for career coaching?

How much do you relate with the following statements…

1.  I’m anxious to “move forward” with my life and/or career but since I don’t know what to do, I haven’t done much (maybe, I haven’t done anything).

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

2.  I feel like I can’t make decisions with confidence – about a career – or about much of anything else in my life!

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

3.  I would value exploring opportunities I don’t know about or have never thought of for myself (everything I ever thought of isn’t working anyway).

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

4.  I want to be the best performer I can be – but I could use a little help designing what that looks like.

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

5.  I don’t want to change who I am – I just want to embrace my strengths AND my weaknesses – I want to understand my purpose for why I am the way I am and find work that appreciates me as I am (and as I am not).

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

6.  I am tired of hearing what my friends and family have to say – I want to hear what a professional would say (preferably one who isn’t employed by my company or friends with one of my parents).

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

7.  I am willing to develop and evolve my skills – to make an investment in myself even if  the company I work for is not.

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

P.S. – career coaching may not be as expensive as you think!

 

8.  A cool job, with a big paycheck, big office, and fancy title at a hot company isn’t enough – I MUST feel like I am making a meaningful contribution to others too.

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

9.  I have thought about different career options but I am not sure if they are right for me – I’d value some validation for my ideas.

 

OR

 

I wish I had some ideas for a career path – I can’t seem to come up with any – I feel like I’ve lost site of what my interests are.

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

10.  I don’t know what to do with all my different interests – some of them even seem to conflict (how can I like art AND science – is art just supposed to be a hobby?).

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

11.  Even if I had an idea about what I want to do, I can’t see how to make it happen.

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

12.  I am just feeling tired, and exhausted by what everyone else seems to want from me.

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

13.  If I got an opportunity for a job interview I’m not sure I would know if it was a good opportunity for me or how to ace the interview (actually, I am pretty sure I would dread the interview process altogether).

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

14.  I would look forward to taking some time to explore who I am and what I most want to be valued for through my work.

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

15.  I want a career (better yet, a LIFE) plan – college is almost over, or my company is making changes or something else is going on – I feel like time is “running out”- help!

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

16.  I am willing to do “the work” – to dedicate myself on a regular basis for a period of time so that I can understand my best options and tap into my hidden potential – I’ll do homework, participate in exercises, use my imagination, explore and discuss hypothetical situations – anything – just make this pain go away!!!

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true

 

17.  I am willing to apply what I am learning even in a life or work situation that is less than ideal – I want to improve my situation starting NOW!

 

True                             Somewhat true                         Not true
