The festivities are well on the way, my parents are in town and the rest of crew are coming in today and tomorrow. The preparation, the cooking, the excitement - I love Thanksgiving! It's the one holiday that is truly focused on family, close friends and being thankful.
I am personally thankful for so many things - still having both of my parents, a close knit family, amazing, supportive friends, an adorable niece, four delightful Godchildren, good health, peace of mind and last, but not least a career that I love - phew, that's a lot of blessings.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to offer words of advice, guidance and support for improving your career health. Do any of the following statements describe you?
-- As the end of the year approaches, do you feel disappointed in yourself for being in the same job?
-- When you think of the positive things in your life, is your job is missing from that list?
-- Do you feel stuck and unchallenged in your job, but are well respected in your field and well compensated?
-- Have you been wanting tand waiting to change careers, but get nervous about taking that first step?
First of all, know that you are not alone you, but what is it going to take this time around for you to take action? What are you LOSING out on by not making the changes to achieve career satisfaction? What is it worth to you to finally have a career to be thankful for?
I have talked/blogged on this topic many times, so this Thanksgiving season, use the opportunity to review my posts, make the commitment to follow through (contact me if you get stuck) and start building a "thankful" career. It does not happen overnight, but it can happen.
I want to wish the very best for this Thanksgiving season, enjoy your family, friends and those close to your heart.
