Finding Your Career Direction

View this email in your browser

When I graduated from college, my mom gave me a card with a picture of a girl standing before a fork in the road. Both directions are possibilities for the girl, but she must make a choice in order to move forward. 

 

I still think back to this card when I am faced with a decision that will move me forward in my career and in my life. I believe that your career plan should be part of your life plan.  

 
You may ask yourself, “Should I choose the easy way or the challenging way?”  I often wanted to choose the easy way, but always ended up taking the challenging route.

When I was in college, I began as a psychology major only to realize that was not my only interest.  I had a wonderful career counselor who informed me that I could design my own major by proposing to the Dean.  
I chose Interdisciplinary studies focusing on psychology, expressional communications, and theatre. This led me to apply for my masters in Occupational Social work.  I remember having to make this challenging decision but I was able to graduate right on schedule and much happier with my career direction.
No matter what happens in our lives, most of us end up choosing the challenging path because it’s in our nature to strive for rewarding goals.   
 
It’s the time of year for graduations, and many of us know someone who is celebrating this milestone or feel that we have a “graduation” of our own as we accomplish a goal. When we complete something, we are faced with new choices as we move forward. Do you feel that you are going in the right direction?  Are you finding yourself wanting to go off down a different way? 
 

In this month’s newsletter and blogs, I hope to help guide you to determine where you are going on your path.
