Be yourself, highlight your passions, the only way to find your dream job

Sé tú mismo, destaca tus pasiones, la única manera de encontrar tú trabajo ideal

The truth is that I have been a long time being totally analytical, understanding what moves inside a person at their job, in their workplace and, do not kid ourselves, at least in part of thir life. I thought about countless of articles, posts, videos, conversations with senior executives, coaches and even with some other self-styled guru (which I could never understand) and I have reached several conclusions:

There is no indefinite dream job

Your goals change with your age; your emotions and experiences are changing and thus should be changing your daily tasks. We set the example of a one year old child: if you only stimulate him with a fishbowl for several days it will come a time that he will let you know his displeasure, in one way or another. It is therefore normal that we need different things at different times.

If you are yourself, you will always be in the right job

I have never met anyone who has not surprised me for some reason. I firmly believe that we all have an area (or several) in which we hide our talent and one way to discover it is to try new things. I will not start talking about the comfort zone and how to get out of it (some of my friends confess that there are more articles about how to get out of the comfort zone than the last heart transpant), but I firmly believe in the importance of curiosity to advance: one way or the other, working and doing whatever it is, but moving forward.

If you are yourself, without masks to please the interviewer, the manager or the new director, you will demonstrate to yourself that you are in the right environment.

Ask yourself which is what comrpomises you with your job

If the answers are stability, fear of the unknown, status or power, you would think about it.

If the answers are illusion, desire to learn and chance to develop your strengths, I am really happy for you. I am sure that as you read this post you feel that inner smile that reminds you that you are where you want to be. Enjoy it!

So remember, as someone said:

“Never be afraid to be yourself. Remember, an original is worth more than a copy.”
