Success and Happiness

If you feel unsuccessful in your career, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of work would make you happy.  Some career coaches recommend finding your “passion.”  For many job seekers or career changers, that search leads to a dead end.  Passion is often hard to define.  I recommend that clients focus on discovering their gifts.  Think about gifts as skills and knowledge you use on the job that you enjoy.  If you want to be happy and successful, find a job that lets you use your gifts.
