“ You can’t be different only more of yourself ” Alan Watts
People want to make career decisions based on anunclear picture of who they are
unclear picture what they “should” want
unclear picture who they wish they were
unclear picture what will impress others (such as title, status, salary)
unclear picturewho they promise themselves they will become if they get this job
unclear picture Who they are afraid to be
“ Always be a first rate version of yourself ” and not a second rate version of someone else Judy Garland
When you are a second rateversion of someone else:
When you are a second rateversion of someone else: You feel like a fraud
When you are a second rateversion of someone else: You make choices you wouldn’t otherwise make
When you are a second rateversion of someone else: Inauthenticity breeds anxiety and anxiety kills creativity
When you are a second rateversion of someone else: You look outside of yourself for approval
When you are a second rateversion of someone else: You lower expectations and limit options
When you are a second rateversion of someone else: it depletes confidence and self-esteem

YOUNeed to know what you wantto get what you want
YOUNeed to know who you areto know what you want
This is the missing link...Most people barely scratch the surface,so they spend their time chasingsomeone else’sdream or vision
Your time is limitedso don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t betrapped by dogma, which is living with the resultsof other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise ofothers’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.And most important, have the courage to followyour heart and intuition.They somehow already knowwhat you truly want to becomeEverything else is secondary. Steve Jobs
