Career Change Principle #1 — The Best Time to Pursue Your Dream Job Is 20 Years Ago and Today
It’s time to make a dramatic career change — to your dream job! If you don’t jump out of bed every work day when the alarm goes off eager to do some work, you are likely not all that enthusiastic about your job.
1. Entertainment manager or events producer
2. Winemaker or brewmaster
6. Golf pro
7. Professional athlete
8. Rock star
10. Bed-and-breakfast-inn owner/operator
The second question is: Why don’t more executives move on to something better if they are not in their dream careers? Clearly, most executives are trapped in the corporate system and don’t have the guts to do something different.
Yet many ordinary people with fewer skills and financial resources than corporate executives have managed to leave corporate life to pursue dream careers. These ordinary people have become happier, wealthier, freer, and more satisfied in their lives.
One reason why so many individuals end up in distasteful work is that too many get caught up on the money side of careers. They see it as a choice between “love the work you do in poverty” or “hate the work you do in abundance.”
Sadly, most people believe that you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Some of us know otherwise — we have gotten ourselves two cakes. This way, we get to keep our cake and eat it, too.
Put another way, we have discovered work that we love. Better still, we manage to earn a decent living. Indeed, many of us earn a better living than 90 percent of corporate workers who hate their jobs.
Above all, ensure that you end up working at something that you love instead of working just for the money. Working at something just for the money is something fearful people do. It is a sign of their lack of self-confidence — in their ability, talent, and creativity to earn money doing something they enjoy.
Truth be known, a typical corporate job is a goal much too small for millions of creative individuals in this world. Indeed, if you are not just a dreamer — but also a doer — a dream career does not have to be an unattainable fantasy.
Chicago advertising executive Robert Cochrane warned Carl Laemmle with these words: “Don’t be a salary slave! If you are going to do anything in this world, you must start before you are forty, before your period of initiative has ended. Do it now!”
In short, it’s seldom too late to discover and pursue a dream job or unique vocation. But it is better to make that career change to your dream job sooner than later.
