Picking a career

Most of us need to earn money to pay for our way through life.
As beings who are aware of our spiritual nature, we also need to find work that harms no one and work that does not harm us. In the best of worlds, our work would fulfill us, make us feel we are contributing to the greater good and gave us a comfortable livelihood.

Here are some ideas and questions to ask yourself, when your trying to think of  new career

If money was not an issue in your life, what would you do with your time?
After you traveled a bit, gave to charity and bought presents, then what?

What would you need to do to live that life?

How long would it take you?

Most people overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they can do in ten years, Plan long range goals with smaller goals along the way. You’ll be less stressed out and will have more time to smell the roses.
Our minds, thoughts and opinions are constantly changing moment to moment and day to day, by setting up goals we allow ourselves to keep focused on what we really want.

Make lists:
1. What do you enjoy doing?
2. What work experiences have you had
A. what did you like about this experience
B. What did you dislike?
3. five careers for each thing on your what you enjoy list
(even watching TV qualifies you to be a critic)

If it feels uncomfortable but exciting, then give it a small run. If you enjoy that little bit then invest yourself in it.  Great changes always feel uncomfortable. The rewards are worth it.
