Kimanzi Constable writes in in the MindBodyGreen blog about his unfulfilling career...
"I spent most of my adult life working jobs that I hated. One of the hardest moments of my day used to be when my alarm clock went off and I got out of bed knowing I'd be spending my time doing something that made me angry and frustrated."
I can relate to that. I've been there myself. Working for years out of competency and not with very much passion. They were all jobs that paid very well, they were very stressful, and very unfulfilling. The work was important to the company, but not necessarily to me. There was always something else tugging at my soul that I should be doing. Yet most of the time I was so busy that I didn't have the time to think about what to do next, to really uncover my passion and, by extension, my Purpose.
That's what I want to encourage you to do if you are caught in an unfulfilling career. Find a way, any way, to get by yourself and think about where you are and where you want to go. Your job isn't boring, it isn't useless, it just isn't for you. You were designed for other things and you have to decompress and find it.
I've put together a helpful guide if you want to use it. If not, that's okay. Just find the time for yourself and figure out where you want to go next.
