Byanalyzing our career failures, we can definitely learnsome very important lessons. This article aims tomake you aware of the ways people normally ruintheir careers and put their career development injeopardy.1. Taking Your Education for GrantedIf you spend so much time partying in college andeventually get a low GPA, you will definitely beoverlooked for a good entry level job. Another thingthat could hurt your pursuit of your career goals is tonot finish your master’s degree.2.

Every job that you choose to have should bea stepping stone towards your ultimate dream job orcareer.3. Not Telling the Truth in Your ResumeOne of the best ways you can ruin your credibilityand your career is to like in your resume. Companiestake applicants’ resumes seriously, and they couldeven run a background check on those who theythink are too good to be true. Finding out that someparts of your resume are exaggerated will forcepotential employers to put your resume straight tothe trash bin.4. Job Hopping Because of MoneyIt is true that employers do not favor job hoppers somuch. But there are still many of them who see thegood side of hiring job hoppers.

In most cases, theyhave this series of questions which are designed in away that can build and even challenge the awarenessof the person they are coaching.Core Values: Coaching is a lot different fromconsulting. Basically, a life coach asks certainquestions with the aim of enabling their clients tothink of solutions themselves, rather than directlygiving them the solutions to whatever their concernsare. The beauty of such questions is that they identifythe core values of the individual or the organizationso that these values will serve as a guide in designingwhich action plans should be taken.Motivation: Not many of us are aware but we all havesome sort of blind spots that actually keep us fromseeing and recognizing things as how they really are.Such blind spots are almost always based on beliefsand assumptions that result from our pastexperiences. The thing is that these assumptions andbeliefs are not always true. So what happens is thatour actions and decisions are likely to lead us awayfrom all our goals in life. The role of a life or careercoach is to make us realize that there are many otheroptions we can explore, and opportunities to takeadvantage of.Actions: It is usually our emotion and instinct that tellus what to do. It is definitely hard to find the wisdomto choose what is right for us. Life coaches ask manydifferent questions, whose answers are meant tomake us realize how we should avoid makingirrational actions and decisions. Actually, everyindividual has the ability to think deeper and realizewhat could be making him or her do unreasonableand irrational things. This could explain why lifecoaches and mentors would usually encourage theirclients to learn to meditate and listen to what is reallyin their hearts. This is also why by merely listening tomotivational words, we usually feel better andwiser.There are times that we know just what direction wewant to go with ourlives, but sometimes wefeel unhappy aboutcertain things we aren’teven know about. Lifecoaching is a veryimportant and helpfultool for us to be able toset our goals in life, and also to figure out what thingswe can, should and want to do. By working with a lifecoach, you will be guided in creating a structure planof what you are going to do with your life to achieveall your goals and dreams.Techniques and Methods that Will Help You ReachYour GoalsA good mentor is an experienced individual who alsoknows a lot of different tools that can map out a planfor you. Your coach will be providing you a lot ofdifferent options, which you may not even think arepossible for you. Life coaches are smart people whoask challenging and very insightful questions that willguide you as you make up your mind on which life orcareer path is best for you. Once you have decided onyour goals and the actions you should take, yourcoach will make sure you are entirely committed toreaching your goals.Overcoming Low Self Esteem and InsecuritiesWe often talk to ourselves about the things we cannotdo and why we just can’t do those things. Self talkingis normal, but what’s not good is when it reaches thepoint where we end up discouraging ourselves fromdoing something because we think we don’t havewhat it takes to get it done.
