Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul." Grouch Marx said, "Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?"
Career management without belief is like work without a pay-check. Everything seems OK, then you find out something very important is missing.
If a surprise like not being paid hits us, we would ask ourselves, “What did we work for?”
When unsure about our career beliefs, the time will come to ask the same question.“What did we work for?”
[Little did they know but Roger and Deborah’s 8 hours of fish-minding was to go unpaid]
So, how can we find out more about the beliefs that relate our individual careers? One way to get started is to look more closely at our values, talents and goals. Exploring what is important, understanding our strengths and confirming what keeps us going, helps to clarify the beliefs that define personal success.
With awareness of your career beliefs - and security in the method that you used to arrive at them - your career and your relationship with work takes on the potential to deliver satisfaction and fulfilment. Turning career belief into career reality.
