DOES YOUR CAREER REFLECT THAT DESIRE - YOUR ESSENCE?
HOW DO YOU KNOW?
That's how many people find themselves - not knowing their true essence. And, worse, they don't know how they would recognize their most critical desire.
Their wants have no foundation in the root of their being.
What is your Desire?
This is the starting point. What desire would make you feel "full" as expressed in a career? Not what others want you to want or what will "look good" in your social structure or what the latest craze happens to be in the media, but the "real you" - your burning desire.
If you feel depressed, frustrated, anxious or just plain lost, then realize that you either want something you really don't want or you don't know what you want because you have never truly labeled your deepest desire.
And . . . if you are in the process of "getting something", then does it fit your essence?
The problem is that you may not have a label for the longing motivating your involvement. The result may leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled despite the belief you thought you were doing the right thing in the right place.
For instance, if you're working long hours at your job, is your hope is to reach the top of your career or to serve and please others or to conform.
What's the real desire behind what you are doing? Are you even in the right job or the right workplace to fulfill yourself?
Can You Name It?
That's your first step. Name your desire - your yearning - your wish. Don't kid yourself about what you're doing.
Pleasing people or conforming are not the roads to a great career unless you are in the right industry. If you're heading for the presidency in a flat organization, you'll obviously fail.
If you want to please people, then line up your career with that yearning - a butler, a waitress, a masseuse, a surgeon, a chef - all kinds of professions have a main objective of pleasing people.
If your craving is to conform to belong, then you'll find peace in government or other big bureaucracies where conformity is a key ingredient.
And if your aspiration is to have power over others and decision-making, "be the boss", then your road must be quite different. You'll want to set yourself up in a place where the probability of becoming president is quite high.
Name it. What is the desire? Where will that desire fit?
