  2. 2. Cosmic Coaching Centre Page 2 Passion For Your Work You hear it everywhere from successful people, job seekers, and those in between jobs. ”I have found my passion that’s why I am successful”, “I haven’t found my passion yet” are only some of the references we often hear when people speak of the passion for work. But what is it really about and how do we find it? Pursuing a career entails so many considerations and among these are external factors such as earning potential, advancement opportunities, the nearness of your workplace to your residence, one that makes use of the education you have taken up, and possibly one that will provide you with the best benefits package that will help support your family. All these are essential things to bear in mind when finding a job but let us not forget the internal factors that also affect your productivity. Job satisfaction is a very essential thing to have when you have a job. It will give you the drive to wake up each day and look forward to another day at the office or work site. Do not mistake job satisfaction for passion because they are two entirely different things. Job satisfaction may be defined as the level of contentment one has in relation to the motivating factors provided by the job they have. This includes incentives, benefits, and rewards that are usually in the form of money, promotions, praises, and many other positive things. Passion on the other hand is a person’s innate love for his job. It surpasses the mediocre satisfaction he gets from the external factors that make him become productive. It goes without saying that if a person has passion for his job, incentives, rewards, and other motivational giveaways are only secondary to the thing that drives him to be productive and to produce exemplary results. It is not something that is there for you to find though. Contrary to the notion that passion is something that is waiting for you to discover, it is actually cultivated. When you find a career that interests you, you are compelled to become better at it. As you become better at it, it constantly becomes very interesting to you. The more it interests you and feeds your hunger for achievement, the more you become passionate about it. To sum it up, you must feel a certain buzz towards a career that you choose. The passion for your work may appear differently in every individual. Some may easily fade, some may even disappear when you develop it into a career. Always remember that you have to know yourself really well to determine if it still works for you. Don’t be ashamed to go back to the drawing board and choose an entirely different career path when it fails. Managing Your Career Going through life with the vision of having a comfortable retirement someday after years of working hard for it may seem to be what everyone is aspiring for. Like any other dream, we need to take the necessary steps in order for it to come true. Nothing is ever done unless we take some action. But what steps should we take in order to guarantee us success? We have to plan for it properly, set our sights on the goal, progress up the professional ladder, and keep ourselves competent in order to remain in the race as there are others besides us who are also chasing the same dream. Planning Plan your moves properly because this will become the backbone of all the things you are going to do and what you are going to do next. Tailor it to your needs and make sure that all the things you do are going to

That way, you will not be stuck in a rut. Goal Setting In order for you to have a sense of achievement once you have completed your plan, you should envision your goals. Make short and long term ones so that it is easily achieved. Short term goals are things you want to get done in the next few months to a year. You’d probably want to be promoted, or to have your efforts recognized within a year. Long term goals are those that you envision yourself doing after three to five years. These could be made of bigger dreams like being able to afford a down payment for a new house or a new car. Advancement Aim for advancement in your career so that you will be able to facilitate your progress up the professional ladder. This one will be a challenging task because you will encounter a lot of people also trying for the same goal. Take heart because as long as you have the determination and the qualifications to succeed, you will eventually get it. Competence Keep your qualifications up to date. Make them current even though you are not using them at present. You’ll never know when you will need it. There are so many opportunities that may require you to present these qualifications. You might decide to change careers, work abroad, or change employers so you will need to be prepared for anything. As long as you are motivated to achieve the goals you have set for yourself, you will be on the right track. Career management is all about preparing for the future in a way that is organized, gives you direction, and gives you an option when things don’t go right.
