4. Evaluate Your Qualifications And Skills Fill your skill gaps as best you can for what is essential in your desired career. Know what potential skills are needed for success and consider available training programs. If you are undecided about your career direction, do some research in areas where there is strong demand for people with high income skills.
6. Find Your Sense of Purpose And Meaning It is easier to work hard and find success if you enjoy what you do for your career. Steve Jobs said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” Finding purpose and meaning in your job increases motivation, engagement, and self-worth.
8. Monetize Your Hobbies Speaking of passion, many people have talent, interests, and hobbies outside of their jobs. They may do woodworking, carpentry, photography, jewelry, clothing, draw, comedy, writing, racecar driving, and a host of other activities one can imagine.
