I know what I am good at. I may not have always known but I realized it after a series of “wannabees” that never materialized.
It started when I was maybe a junior in high school. I loved dancing. Went to dancing classes for years. Decided I wanted to “be a dancer”. Now, try telling a nun,who was my career counsellor you want to be a dancer. I was terrified of her response especially when she told me my plan was not “do-able”. “You’re much too short to be a dancer,” she offered, as though she had spent her life in the entertainment industry.
Fast forward several years later and after a switch in college majors(from another wannabe indecision) I end up in a therapy field. Spent my first gig working in the school system and really enjoyed my job and WAS REALLY GOOD AT IT, but got bored and moved on to the same field but now in a business of my own. I had to market, interview, hire/fire, promote, represent and do therapy and you know what, I WAS REALLY GOOD AT IT, and created a great income stream as a result. Yet after two decades, the passion was simply not there to wear the hats and sustain the knowledge I needed to continue to grow…so once again I changed direction, this time into coaching.
Now 11 years later, I realize something I always share with my clients. It debunks a career myth that says to be good at something you must be passionate. PHOOEY!
