Author, speaker and entrepreneur Harold Leffall is here to give you his best advice on how to find the right career path.
What is the first step someone should take when trying to find a job they love?
Conduct a self-inventory to determine your true interests and talents, not the ones you may have cultivated in order to earn a living.
Where can you go for guidance?
Talk with a life coach. Like a counselor, life coaches use questions to help you determine what choices to make. They are able to assist you in narrowing your focus and getting clear on what you really want in a job.
What three questions should you ask yourself?
Do the job responsibilities harmonize with my core intention for growth and creative expression? Does the thought of the job energize me? Does the salary allow me to meet my financial obligations?
If you didn’t have your current job, what do you see yourself doing?
It would definitely have to be a job where I was able to encourage others to be their best, Maybe a therapist.
Who are the people that help you be your best self?
I am inspired by people who are passionate about the work they do. There is such positive energy that emanates from those who really enjoy their work.
