Written by Bill Dueease

Continued from page 1

Secret #6 Create or develop your ideal position to fit you People rarely perform this step because they fall intorepparttar rut of chasing job “opportunities” andrepparttar 149283 disastrous trial and error method of choosing their work. Why, because they are led to believe that creating an income position to suit themselves is not possible, even while they are frequently told to do what they want. Remember, it is your work selection process that is flawed, not you. Once you know your passions, desires, values and talents, you will be able to develop and find a number of careers that will allow you to fulfill all of them atrepparttar 149284 same time. Now you will be creatingrepparttar 149285 position to suit you, instead of taking a position and adjusting to it. Believe it or not,repparttar 149286 more you know about yourself,repparttar 149287 easier it will be to create and find your ideal position.

Secret #7 Go get your ideal position Now you are ready to get your ideal position. If your ideal position is an already established job, you will be amazed at how easily and quickly you will be able to get it. Your enthusiasm, your confidence, your talents to perform, and especially your capacity to produce many quality results will attract any worthwhile employer. They will know you really want to perform, instead of just applying for a job. If your position is not a job, but one where you are either a business owner or an independent contractor, you will easily and quickly beginrepparttar 149288 process of buildingrepparttar 149289 position to suit your personal criteria.

Secret #8 Get Help fromrepparttar 149290 right person People are led to believe that they can easily look within themselves and discover what is there on their own. Self-help books and assessment tests claim that readingrepparttar 149291 book or takingrepparttar 149292 tests will reveal all you need to get your ideal career. Yet, both methods fall very short of actually getting torepparttar 149293 truth. Discovering what you really want, what your true talents or values are is not a self-help process.

We humans cannot see our face without using a mirror or a photographic image. Just as you must look into a mirror to see what you really look like, you must have another person act as your objective mirror to see what you really want to do and be in life. Seek out and get someone to be your objective mirror to discoverrepparttar 149294 truths about yourself, to find or create your ideal position.

Secret #9 Once you obtain your ideal position, stay there until it suits you to leave Many people actually obtain a position that they really love and it fulfills their wants and needs. Then along comesrepparttar 149295 promotion to elevate these very productive and happy workers, because they are so happy and productive. They are expected to perform even better and with more enthusiasm becauserepparttar 149296 new job pays more and has a higher status. But it doesn’t work out that way. The new, higher position is very different fromrepparttar 149297 one they loved so much, and performing it is much more difficult which creates conflicts and stress, especially withrepparttar 149298 additional pressure to do more. Once you arrive at your ideal position, haverepparttar 149299 courage to remain in that position until your wants and needs change to drive you to getrepparttar 149300 new position to suit your new criteria. The acceptance of promotions to suit others has ruined far too many happy work relationships. Take control of your work and accept promotions only if they increase your ability to fulfill your personal wants and needs.
