CareerBuilder.com Tips for knowing when it’s time for a new job.

Why is it that we are always looking for something more? What is it that drives some of us to pursue, to find that “thing” that we are passionate about doing? Maybe it’s because we have all been conditioned, programmed to work for someone else and that’s not making us feel fulfilled. We were not programmed to go for what makes us happy or fulfilled, we were programmed to work a job to make a living. And the job you choose will determine what kind of lifestyle you are most likely to have. I say most likely because if you don’t have good money management skills and self-discipline, it won’t matter how much money you make. Did you know they say a lot of lottery winners end up worse off financially? Hard to believe, right?. I’ve attached some articles here on the subject:

Don’t you wish there was a magic pill that you could take before going to bed and then wake up the next morning knowing just what it is you want to do with the rest of your life? But noooo…..there’s more to it than that. There seems to have to be some kind of struggle involved. I guess it’s so we can get some of those valuable life lessons along the way — here’s what works, here’s what doesn’t. A lot of people don’t know what they want to do so don’t think you are alone. And some people already know what they want to do, but don’t exactly know how to go about it, are too tired from working their j-o-b to pursue it, or don’t know how to make money, make a living from doing it…. Because after all, we do need money to keep a roof over our heads, food in our mouths and clothes on our back.

So where was I….oh yes, money making decisions. When it came to college I decided to go for the money. At the time I didn’t know what I was going to do with an art degree, so I squelched that idea. I wanted more of a sure thing. Now my daughter is in college. I used a different tactic on her…..I’ve always encouraged her to pursue her passion — Photography and computer graphics. It’s much better to feel fulfilled in what you are going to spend most of your waking hours doing, don’t you think?

Maybe most of us bloggers are secretly writers, teachers — or both, or radio hosts and tv talk show hosts in the making. Think about it…..why do you blog?

So for those still searching, still trying to figure out what they want to be or do when they grow up here’s some videos that may help you:
