When we’re little, we dream of one day becoming an astronaut, a firefighter, a doctor, a teacher. But as we grow up, these dreams change—based on evolving interests, as well as needs. For example, if you once hoped to become a doctor, this dream might have changed due to the amount of schooling and therefore money it takes to become one! Similarly, if you once wanted to become a teacher, this dream might have changed due to your need or desire to make more money than this profession offers at the moment. Money isn’t the only factor, of course; sometimes, our interests and our hobbies change too, and naturally, we adjust our career goals to match them.
“The belief that you can have a meaningful career is the first step to finding one.” –Sean Aiken
The main takeaway is this: your job isn’t just a job—it’s a major part of your life. In addition to providing you with the financial means to live, it serves as a source of success, fulfillment, inspiration, and growth. Or, at least it should. If it doesn’t, it might be time to explore a different career that suits your financial needs as well as your interests, hobbies, and skills—of which you can do with a career counselor or coach.
