Finding Your Dream Job

“I want to find my dream job”

How often does this sentence run through your mind? Figure, you use most of your time working, eight hours per day, five days per week. How amazing would it be if you were able to do something you truly enjoy. Something you feel so passionate about, that time is going by fast, your body feels relaxed and afterwards you feel refreshed?

After my studies, I figured I wanted to accomplish this in life. I could not stand working 40 hours per week, while the main thing I longed for was coming home. Or, living from one weekend to the other. So, while I was able to go on a fantastic journey with the help of wonderful life coaches, I was sure I wanted to be a big help for others, and help them in their journey towards finding the work they love.

Life coaching stepped into my life. In this blog I want to share some tips that I use in my coaching practice Your Clear Path.

Think about what your values are. What do you find important in your life? What was an unforgettable moment in your life? Then, have a close look if your values are being honored in your current work. As a life coach, I use several exercises to have you find your values. I recommend you to make a top five list of your values and write it down.

Further, as a life coach, I ask you what your life purpose is and to write it down. Maybe you can answer it right away, or otherwise, I will coach you and use several visualization exercises to find out the answer to this.

Make a list of action steps you can take, to find out more about accomplishing your goal. You can do research, talk with others to gain information, write lists down etc.

During these travels towards your dream job, you bump into internal conflicts. As a life coach, I advise you to take your intuition under the loop. For example, do you really belief in your dream? Do you trust yourself? What does your intuition tell you, and how can you actually recognize your intuition? I, for example, feel my intuition in my belly. And I see it in images running through my mind. When I am following my intuition, my mind is quiet and does not question anything. I am just taking action. I recommend you to meditate, and find out where you feel your intuition, and how you can increase this feeling so it can serve you better. Your intuition will tell you what’s good for you, what steps to take towards your passion in life.

The search for your dream job may be delayed by the so called ‘Gremlin’. Do you recognize the voice in your own head who tells you that you cannot do it? Others are better, and that you are not worth it? A voice that tells you that you absolutely will get fired, because your boss looked a sudden way at you etc. It is your mind playing tricks with you. As a life coach, I will advise you to train yourself in ‘just noticing’. Just notice this voice, but do not struggle with it. Talk with it and do not put too much energy in it. The less energy you put into it, the smaller it will get. Further, as a life coach, I will help you to decipher what is actually true. Keep thinking, ‘If this was true, what then? ‘, ‘And what then?’ You continue doing this, until you end up with a small result. You can also just look at the facts. ‘Which part of this statement is a fact, and absolutely the truth?” You will see that often not much is left of the previous statement.

I advise you to do assignments each week. For example, what is it to feel more complete? Assignments may include doing research, asking around, writing a schedule down etc. You take any step towards your goal. I, as a life coach, will encourage you to make lists of action steps and cross them off, have friends and family members keep you accountable, celebrate successes, meditate and start your day with a daily mantra, and last but not least, just hire a life coach if change is not coming soon enough.
