I really had no idea which career would best fit my overall interests, personality, and motivations, until I found a little test that I really appreciated. One year I was able to take a personality test that was based on the research of Carl Jung (usually pronounced ‘Young.’ I say usually because sometimes I dip into ‘Texas Mode’ and say ‘Jung.’ It’s how Texans roll.), and it really did change the way I look at life.
As a matter of fact, it changed the way I look at life so much, I dove into his research and decided to make my own test. It turns out, I was really interested in helping people out in these type of self-assessment projects. By getting more focused on that, I knew where to aim for my next stage, and I’m hoping that you’ll see these kinds of tests can be useful guidance for your career and future. Here are a few reasons why.
You’ve Got To Figure Out What Matters
As I did, taking these tests gave me results that helped me point towards the direction I knew I needed to go. Sure, they weren’t answers on very specific steps that I needed to go the very next day. However, they were templates to help me know what I needed to do to get to the next step, or what I needed to focus on for the growth that’s to come. You use these little hints at growth to help guide what you do next and figure out what really matters in your life.
Now, Are You Using What Matters?
The point of figuring out what matters in your life is so that you’ll be aware of it, and then you’ll start living your life through the awareness of things that matter in your life. When you know that your prime motivating factor is growing your family and making sure that they’re secure for the future, every single thing you do will be in line with that, or at least should be. Once you have a greater understanding of that, then you can start changing the things that don’t fit that picture, whether that’s your job, you hobbies, or your friends.
Okay, It’s Time To Make It Matter
After getting the awareness of what matters, seeing how you can implement what matters, and making it a prime factor in your life, then you’ll need to make the time to make those matters come true. You’ll start to stop doing the things that don’t make any sense anymore for the future growth of your family and yourself.
That might mean stopping TV, that might mean stopping playing games, and that might mean stopping hanging out with your buddies. These are things that have now become less important to you. These are things that are no longer in line with where you want to go with your life. It’s time to make things that matter, matter more.
