.Some career options may include starting your own business, doing what you love, or working towards another position within your job. Entrepreneurship can look a lot like just doing what you love and doing what you know you can do. Sometimes, you may find yourself stuck in some patterns of work that are not self-serving or work you don't find 'meaning' in. That's a big work: MEANING. Let's break it down...
What is meaning? Meaning is the way your body and psyche attaches itself to a particular emotion, event, act, or belief. For example, you see most of your bosses treat their employees like savages and slaves...the meaning you may attach to these actions is..."Bosses suck and never treat people good. We are just robots in the grind to them." (Side note: Not ALL bosses suck, I have had some really great ones myself that I could see myself working forever for). Either way, this was just an example, and could entirely be someone's REAL experience. So, why do they stay at that job? Because _____ fill in the blank. IT COULD BE ANY REASON...it could possibly even be attached to the meaning they have made so far, "If every boss sucks, there's no point in looking for another job. I should just suck it up and stay." IF this is the meaning, career counseling can tackle these meaning making issues. Because lets be honest, not every boss is the same. You could really enjoy one in the future.
Why do we need to make meaning? And why do we need to reshape our meaning? ...Well, say you went through life believing every boss was the same, but deep down, you know that's not true... let's examine what meaning you make on yourself from this...."I am not worthy of having a boss who treats me like a human being." THIS. This right here. This is the real meaning you have now attached to your character and personality...you don't believe you are worthy of good things. Now...does this just affect your work life...or will it affect other areas of your life. Our bodies don't discriminate...if it believes this one thing about ourselves in terms of career...it will find a way to prove itself right..."You don't deserve a partner who treats you well, or a family who treats you well."
This self-talk stems from one belief...a core belief...tell me again that career counseling doesn't matter in life.
So, if you find yourself wondering, why in the world would anyone want to do career counseling... Think again. This may just be the thing you are missing.
