is your career fulfilling you

Is Your Career Fulfilling You?

Today, I wanted to talk about career fulfilment and how we can embody more of this in our professional lives.

After working with 200+ high performing individuals over the last couple of years, I’ve noticed a pattern in the people who are most successful when it comes to career and lifestyle balance, and fulfilment is right up there when it comes to long term success and happiness. 

Career fulfilment is all about finding a career path that aligns with your values, what you are most passionate about and enhancing your skill sets where you feel like you are contributing to something bigger than yourself. It’s about doing the work that gives you a deeper sense of purpose and satisfaction, and allows you to make a meaningful impact. 

So how can you achieve greater career fulfilment?

Identify your values; to find a career that aligns with your values, you need to know what those values are. Ask yourself, what matters most to you? What drives you? Who do you want to be serving? What brings you the most amount of joy? Once you have a clear understanding of your values, you can start to move the needle in your existing career, pivot your career, or start looking for a career that aligns with your values. 

Follow your passions; pursuing your passions is a great way to find career fulfilment. If you love what you do and do what you love, it won’t feel like work. Think about what you’re passionate about and find ways to incorporate more of that into your career.

Build your skillset; the more skills you have the more competent and confident you will feel, so that you create more opportunities to find fulfilment in your career. Immerse yourself in training programmes and workshops, and spend more time around the people who inspire you. Seek out opportunities to learn and grow.

Seek out purpose; one of the keys to career fulfilment is finding purpose and meaning in your day to day work. This can be achieved by finding a career that allows you to make a difference in the lives of others, or by working towards a cause that once again, you are passionate about.

Embrace challenges; embracing challenges and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is a great way to grow and find fulfilment in your career. Don’t be afraid to take on new challenges and try new things, because that’s when growth is possible.

Career fulfilment is all about finding a career path that aligns with your values, passions, skills and sense of purpose. It takes time, patience, resilience and an unwavering focus, but the rewards are immeasurable
