According to 2012 surveys cited in places like Forbes and CBS News, 60% to 80% of people are unhappy in their jobs. One survey went so far as to state that only 19% of the people polled actually enjoy their jobs. It might be easy to blame the current economy, but surveys in the 1980's showed similar results. Do these alarming statistics mean you are doomed to a work life you don't enjoy? Absolutely not!
The key difference between successful people who really like what they are doing to make a living and people who are unhappy and unsuccessful is simple - happy, successful people base their work on their natural strengths.
But what about passion? There are many voices in the marketplace that tell you that if you find your passion, you'll find happiness. While passion is important, here's why it's not enough - passion is one part knowledge, one part preference. Really. Knowledge is the food for your intellect. Preference is the way you enjoy applying your knowledge. Without your natural strengths as a foundation your passion will wither and you'll feel unfulfilled (or even worse like a failure).
You can be very happy and successful in the career of your choice if you ensure the activities you perform and the environments you work in are supported by your natural strengths. Does this mean only certain people should be accountants, or lawyers, or entrepreneurs, or techies, or craftsmen, or actors, or factory workers? Absolutely not!
If law is your passion, will you be more successful as a trial lawyer or a corporate lawyer? If acting is your passion, will you be more successful as a method actor or an improvisational actor? If accounting fascinates you, will you be more successful as a tax preparer or an auditor? The key is understanding your natural strengths and choosing the job that allows you to maximize those strengths.
"I was in a job and corporate environment singularly unsuited for me. When I got my results, I was relieved to be reminded of my talents and invigorated to find an environment where I could flourish.
How I found my current job was greatly impacted by using my results. They allowed me to speak differently to my prospective employer about what I do. They helped me know what questions to ask to ensure that I was making a wise choice to move. By doing this, I was able to ascertain that the company culture and dynamic was far more suited to me.
The level of detail and the depth of understanding from my Perceptual Style results are far better – and more immediately useful – than other tests I have taken. The difference is quite simply, off the charts."
Success in your career is about being the very best YOU you can be. Whether you are working as a food server, a doctor, a public servant, a musician, a teacher, an entrepreneur - literally any job there is - put your unique skills and strengths to work for you:
"The system told me more about myself in the first few minutes of seeing the results, than many of the other assessment tools out there. I really like how it brings together skills and perceptual style so quickly.
It is unique and useful to any individual looking to make career changes. In one easy snapshot you can see who you are, where you're at and immediately get a handle on new directions that are best for you! I highly recommend it!"
