How to Get the Best Career Advice

You don’t trust the best your best source of career change advice. As a career coach, with 10 years of career coaching experience, may I tell you the secret?You are the source of your own best career advice. If you’re confused and troubled about what to do, then you just haven’t asked your higher self or you haven’t believed what you’ve heard. What if you had a loving, wise Uncle or Aunt whose only agenda was your success and fulfillment? Would you trust him or her? Well you have such a loving mentor and he or she is your higher self. Career success requires bold decisiveness and your higher self can inspire you to action. But you’ve got to be open to communicating with your all-knowing, higher guidance system within. It’s all good.You truly can’t choose the wrong advice, if you’ve gone to your own well. It’s all good, means that whatever we choose, the movement gives us fresh perspective to either progress or adjust. It’s all good when we choose and act. It’s seldom good when we hesitate to act.There are many ways to tell if you’re really getting good career advice by tapping your true source of wisdom. Consider these symptoms and indicators.Lower Self Symptoms1). You wait, hesitate to act and over-think critical decisions.2). You justify, explain and excuse your lack luster performance.3). You seldom give it your all.4). You often focus on past mistakes and future fearful what ifs.5). You compromise and settle for smaller dreams, often suggested by others.Higher Self Indicators1). You more often act and create.2). You tell more truth than excuses.3). You bring your “A” game.4). You are fully aware of the power of now.5). You are working on a first place dream that brings you alive.Isn’t it time that you quit playing small? The world needs your magnificence.
Every day you have this choice. You can take your career advice by listening to your higher self and boldly act. Or you can cringe and hide while listening to your little self or the lower fearful opinions of others.”If we are going to insist on identifying with just the little self in here, then others are going to bruise it, insult it, injure it. The ego, then, is kept in existence by a collection of emotional insults; it carries its personal bruises as the fabric of its very existence. It actively collects, hurts and insults, even while resenting them, because without it’s bruises it would be literally nothing.” Ken WilberIf you want more than you have, you’ve been giving less than you can.We give less than we could be giving when we fail to act on higher advice.It takes balls to follow bold career advice. Often by taking action to build a business or create unique value, we put ourselves at risk. So what. The absence of risk often indicates that we are playing too small.Quit listening to your fearful, lower, little self. Playing small serves no one. Compromises may seem prudent but they’re just fearful hopes lacking passion.Do the thing that only you can do. Go big!Be who you are. Who you are is your higher self. You’re lower self is simply a watered down fearful version conditioned by the collective fears of other small selves.”The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice it is conformity.” Rollo MayWhen times are dark and you pray for help, it’s always good to remember this. Upon creation you were already given all that you need. You arrived here equipped for magnificence. You don’t have to ask for deliverance. You’ve already been delivered.You’ve just forgotten how magnificent you really are. Go within, ask and you’re higher self will show you the way.

Career Advice Made Easy

You know what I’ve discovered? Getting a job is hard work. I’m a final year student and for the past year or so I’ve been relishing the prospect of graduating and getting myself a real job so I can finally have some money. Money, money, money – I’m going to buy so much crap! That optimism has since changed to blind panic over leaving uni life behind and entering the real world. Suddenly getting a job and earning money doesn’t seem as appealing as lying in bed all day and recovering from a well earned hangover.Helpfully my blind panic had been accelerated by the daily updates of how the recession is going to destroy the world. This blind panic has had a strange motivational effect. I decided I could either let it ruin my remaining time at uni or I could get on top of it and figure out the whole career getting mystery. Now I’m still a little scared, but at least I know where I want to end up and how I’ll get there.’How?’ I hear you ask. ‘You must be some sort of god?’ I hear you cry (or that may just be my imaginary friend Steve)? I used the internet. I ignored the endless offers of enlarging my manhood, the hot naked chicks that want me and the various offers of cheap pharmaceuticals and tapped ‘career advice’ into Google. The Google elf’s worked their magic and bought me the following sites that have managed to slow my heart rate and stop the night terrors:Wiki JobsIt maybe another Wiki powered community, which I normally write off as being half arsed but it’s actually pretty useful and brimming with career advice.
