Today, we all are searching for something. Something ‘big’. Something ‘right’. Right job, right education, right strategy, right career, right life-partner etc. But we mostly search it outside – in colleges, universities, courses, MNCs, glamour industry, success-of-others, external look-n-feel etc. In this search, we are probably missing the true place of our treasure i.e. our-own-self; our talent, passion, and strengths.
With complexity & uncertainty driven by change & innovation, day-by-day, it is becoming difficult to choose the right options. Wrong choice means big cost - in terms of time, money, resources, frustration, anxiety and loss of competitiveness. Over and above, we are sold many ideas, products and philosophies by market influencers. E.g. Of late, we are sold by our society that ‘without a postgraduate degree there is no future’, ‘without science & technology background there is no job’, ‘without good rank in studies there is no career’.
Well, we, knowing or unknowingly, have bought these ideas very convincingly. Money is a need, but we started saying that ‘money is my motivator’. We started feeling happy with short-term gain, with not much of an eye on long-term effects such as expertise, leadership, accountability. The result is frustration, disappointment and failure .
So, let’s not search what is right as per others, or what sounds great from outside, but rather what makes you a creative expert and problem solver, as per your values, talents, passions and behaviours. We need to understand ourselves (individual) first, our path and direction next. We should set the right career agenda for ourselves, with no comparison with others.
We, at Loratis SetMyCareer, facilitate ‘making you choose the right education and right career’. And we do this through a scientific and research-based approach for each individual. We define and connect your energy-dots to create a picture of success and happiness as unique as you are.
We focus only on one thing – you are born to lead the world, your right career! Age is no bar. We do it for teens from 13 years, youngsters in 30s to seniors in 70s. Because, passion never retires.
