Career Coaching for Success in a Changing World

Change brings stress and its human nature to find comfort in patterns of consistency. The crutch of predictive repetitiveness is that it is unsustainable. We need to change or adapt in order to survive. The world is changing with more frequency as we enter the knowledge economy fueled by digital communications and technological advances. These changes create uncertainty and reinventing our knowledge, skills, and abilities on a weekly basis is more than challenging. Globalization has contributed to the mass confusion of where we fit into the picture and how we could do something substantial with our lives. There is more competition for resources than ever before in our human history.

With all this change and complication has come increased knowledge and understanding. We have acquired more worldly views and gained a new appreciation for learning as a society. Doors have opened where there were none before. New industries have evolved and newer platforms will emerge in the future. The major question we all want answered is: where do we fit into this puzzle?

There is a two-part answer that applies to all of us.  Scientific research has discovered that we all have specific strengths and there are ways for each individual to discover their own. The second part is the most important part and requires a positive attitude to implement for success. What are you passionate about? What makes you want to wake up in the morning? What have you always dreamed of doing?

The answers to these personal questions are the basis for being a success. Knowing your strengths and applying them to living your passion with a positive attitude that will not allow for failure is success. We only fail if we give up. Giving up is not an option for success. Neither is going full steam ahead without adjusting for large barriers and obstacles. Our success train needs to be flexible enough to deal with problems, but we can never allow unforeseen problems to stop us. Murphy’s Law states that everything that can go wrong will go wrong so we need to plan accordingly. No one is a success overnight.  Success requires a set of actions that creates positive momentum and we need to continually add to that momentum daily. Entering into this process is a success within itself because you are following and living your passion by applying your favorite part of yourself, your strengths.

Discovering and applying your strengths to your passion is the recipe for success. Each individual has a different path. Finding that path is the hard part and doing it is the easy part. Life becomes everything we dreamed it would be when we find our life rhythm.  We all have the ability to combine these personal traits for success.  If your strengths are not clear then I suggest you invest in yourself by taking a few self-assessments around personality, conation abilities, and a SWOT analysis which is an understanding of strengths and weaknesses.  These assessments will aid you in understanding your innate abilities and provide a guide on how to apply your strengths to your passion.  If your passion consists of more than one choice then I suggest you choose the most appropriate one for living a more purposeful life and never look back.  Oscillating between passions will weaken each position and reduce the effectiveness of both.

You have a competitive advantage in this economy of change and that competitive advantage is you.  You have unique skills that you bring to the competition and you need to sharpen your tool for maximum advantage.  The increasing change is a positive that is harnessed by those who know what they have to offer and what they are most passionate about doing. Stress becomes confidence when these innate factors are realized and combined – a confidence that multiplies and creates the dreamed of reality that we all seek.
