Each one of us experiences events in our lives that forcefully shape our relationship to everything… money, work, personal relationships, and success.
Since most of us work, or have held some type of job in the past, a person’s work history is often rich with insights and deep-seated beliefs that may otherwise be difficult to uncover.
We may resist exploring our work history, but if it is not acknowledged, confronted, and brought into awareness, it will remain a major obstacle to overcoming self-destructive behaviors.
Take a moment and reflect on the following:
How do you feel about the jobs you’ve had?
How have you gotten them, and how have you left them?
Did you look forward to going to work or dread it?
Did you find your work rewarding and fulfilling?
Did you work to your fullest potential?
Did you earn what you were worth? Did you earn what you desired?
It’s this type of inquiry that will help you begin to be aware of, and make connections between, jobs and your feelings about them.
If you’d like to do a complete Work History Inventory on yourself, I have a free PDF that will walk you through this process, step-by-step. Go here to download it (it’s free!).
Completing a Work History Inventory will help you explore how your decisions about work may have affected your entire approach to life.
It will also help you discover your own definition of meaningful work, so you can begin to create a vision for the lifestyle you desire.
Once you explore that vision and match that with what you need to earn, you will be on the road to living the life you want to live.
