Help! I’m almost 30 and still don’t have my dream career…

Are you approaching 30 and you still don’t have your “dream” career? Are not married? Don’t have any children? Does this sound too familiar? Not to worry you’re not the only one, and here’s the thing, its all part of the process. That was me a couple of years ago, trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Now that I’m a year away from the big 3-0, I finally figured out in which direction I want my life to go. It took time for me to get to know myself and to find out what I enjoy doing.

Here are some questions that you can ask yourself to help you along the way and see which career can be best for you…

.What do you absolutely love to do?

.If there was one thing you can do everyday where money would not be an issue, what would it be?

.What are you most passionate about?

.What do you feel you do best?

These sorts of questions are the ones you should be asking yourself and where only you can have the answer. The career path that you choose needs to hold much more value than what you receive in a paycheck, in order to be fulfilled and content.

I know this all to well, panic settles in and we don’t know what to do. Don’t panic. Everything is just the beginning. While in your twenties we always seem to think that we know everything. We rush through life not understanding what the rush is all about

In your thirties is where you get to know yourself more, your grounded. Your perspectives change, and you see life in a different light. You’re in a good place, take your time. Good things are always worth the wait, and everything comes through process and revelation. So sit back and enjoy the ride!
