Finding your ‘thing’; thoughts on the modern career

Finding your ‘thing’; thoughts on the modern career

The further I get into full time working, the more I realize the importance of finding my ‘thing’. This ‘thing’ I am speaking of can be called your: passion, niche, purpose and the list goes on.

I feel like in university you want to do something interesting and at the same time you really want to grow into a marketable employee. I saw a quick video today about entrepreneurs and what stuck out to me was the cause of a big shift in how people see their careers. For a very long time people wanted to get educated, get into a good job and work there for the majority of their careers. It was a stable, logical plan. After the 2008/2009 market crash I think the reality really hit people. Even if you work for someone else it isn’t always rock solid stable, you never know what could happen. This then prompted some thoughts about entrepreneurial ventures and I think transformed into a quest of creating a life for yourself that you don’t dread but rather are excited for to get out of bed in the morning.


I think that this is important, if you have a dream of where you see yourself in life you need to start taking steps and sometimes risks in order to get there.

Lately I have been watching some videos and reading articles on things like “top ten success points” from people like Oprah, Tyra Banks and Ivanka Trump. I think they are VERY motivational and inspirational.

It is like that saying, we all have the same hours in a day as beyonce but it is what you do with that time that will make the difference!

I propose in 2016 we all make some headway in determining our ‘thing’ which hopefully will bring us closer to making impact on others and being happy.
