Most of us assume that the way to find a job is to see what’s available in job listings or to select a career based on someone’s advice, but these often lead to unfulfilling career choices. You only need to look at the latest job satisfaction surveys for how unfulfilled most workers feel. According to Forbes.com, the Society for Human Resource Management found only 29% of workers in the 31-to-61 age group were “very satisfied” with their jobs. The rest were either “somewhat satisfied” or not satisfied at all.
So what can you do to find job satisfaction and fulfillment while still making a great living?
It is in our hearts that we should seek guidance about finding career paths that lead to long-term success and happiness. So this fall, I’m excited to offer a new three-part series:

Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They focus on their past successes, not past failures. They take the next step to get closer to the fulfillment of goals. They don’t get bogged down by the distractions life presents.
One of my favorite sayings is “if you do nothing, nothing will change.” it’s time to develop your overall career change strategy to get you from the career you’re in today to your dream job.
Always follow your dreams!
Believe in the best, think your best, study your best, have a goal for your best, never be satisfied with less than your best, try your best and in the long run, things will turn out for the best.
