#leadershiptruth – Dream careers are magical unicorns.

Posted January 30, 2018 in Latest News & Insights

I meet many people who tell me how ‘lucky’ I am to have a job that I love to do. It’s as if they think that one day I woke up and some magical job unicorn was sitting in front of me, waving their sparkly rainbow-coloured horn and granting me my perfect job. Um, I wish. I’m here because I practically had a nervous breakdown at 32 years old because I was so flipping stressed out about ‘what I was going to be when I grew up’ that I decided to start making changes. Finding your ‘dream job’ is quite simply hard work (for most of us anyway). It requires you to really dig deep into what you love, what you don’t love, what gives you energy… and then make some moves in that direction. Most people get stuck because they’re too snuggled into their career comfort zones which end up smothering them. My journey to career happiness has taken the better part of two decades… and I still feel like I’m just getting started.
