According to a Gallup report, there are twice as many “actively disengaged” workers in the world as there are “engaged” workers who love their jobs.

Finding a career path that makes us feel satisfied and successful is certainly not easy. It’s not something that we are taught to do at school and taking that first step towards a career can be quite a daunting task, especially for those who are unsure of where their passion lies or what they value most.

We spend one-third or more of our days at work.

Work defines us.

When we are happy at work, life is good.

When we are unhappy at work it negatively impacts all other aspects of our life.

More than 70% of workers report that they don’t feel happy about their career choices. The question is why? The answer is complex, but one thing we do know is that too many people choose their career based on the opinions and expectations of others. Put more bluntly, people choose their careers to impress others, to feel respected and validated by others and to avoid being poorly judged, in the process, however, they unfortunately lose sight of their own needs and desires.

How do you find the work that makes you feel energised, engaged and happy? What can you do that will help steer you in the right direction or possibly even lead you to the right job?
