Are You Getting What You Want From Your Career?

More than any other element, your career satisfaction affects your overall well-being.  Think about it. How you feel about being at work every day impacts your health, your relationships, your finances and your attitude about your life in general.

Are you in a job where you’re feeling stuck?  Wondering “what am I supposed to be doing?”  Or asking yourself “what’s it all for?”

Are you trudging to work every day, feeling numb, bored out of your mind, sapped of energy, or pulling your hair out?  Are you wondering what your next step is in life?  Feeling like the years are just slipping away in a rear view mirror?

Sometimes it’s a boss or co-worker plucking your nerves that makes it clear you’re not getting what you want from your career.  Sometimes it’s being passed over for opportunities, or working hard and not being recognized for your contribution.  Sometimes it’s just feeling unrewarded and underappreciated.  If your job is sheer drudgery, you’re in a miserable environment, or suffering in a torturous situation, it’s pretty clear that your career isn’t working for you.

I can relate.  There were many days I felt that way in my “corporate” life.  Now I hear about it every day when professionals tell me about their situations and ask how they can get more of the life they want.  One that has meaning.
