What does it take to have a dream career? This video with Ian Faria, Chief Mentor & Co-founder of TalkTemple and Anupama Gowda, Co-founder WorkBench Solutions tries to answer the question.
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams” – Oprah Winfrey
If money didn’t exist, would you still get up every morning and do what you do for a living? That is a question only a lucky few would say yes to. But is luck a factor at all for living your dream? What does it take to have a dream career?
Everyone has a dream career. Then why doesn’t everyone strive to pursue it? Among many other factors, the most important is the lack of courage. It is easier, for most, to take the safe road than thrive in a situation that throws all kinds of challenges your way from social to financial.
There are a few prerequisites to start your dream career. The first is the courage to take the plunge and the courage to overlook the negative energy that gives you reasons why it wouldn’t work. The negative energy could be self doubt or it could be people who are determined that your dream is actually a nightmare.
The next is to find the idea that you want to work with, why you would want to work with it, and whether the world is ready to or is moving towards your idea. Anupama Gowda, co founder of Workbench projects suggests that manifesting an idea is almost like giving birth to a baby and the idea needs to be incubated for a while to see if you can do justice to it with your time and resources.
In addition to all these, it is important to stay self motivated and be resilient when you have hard times. Start now! Live your dream!
