Don’t be a generalist, become an expert in something! When you become an expert you will be in demand! When you’re in demand you will have more choices in your career. When you have more choices you will have the freedom to do what you want!
Freedom is the key to your success. The more freedom you have the more you will be able to succeed in the areas of your strengths. Too many of you are pretending in your current careers. Are you in the right position? Are you an expert? Are you in demand? Do you have any freedom? Why?
When you evaluate your career, what are you? What is your expertise? Do you have one? Do you go through the motions at work? Do you drift from job-to-job? Are you constantly unhappy in your career? If you are most likely you’re a generalist, in the wrong career, or both. Which is it?
The key to success is finding a career that fits your personality and sticking to it. Whatever it is. When you’re in the right position you will be happier, and when you’re happier you will be more successful. If you’re looking to change careers right now make sure you’re putting the money aside when making your decision. Don’t let the money cloud your decision.
I have met a lot of people that make great money but hate what they do in their careers. You have to put the money aside when you’re making decisions about the right career for you. Don’t listen to other people you must listen to yourself. You are the only one that knows what you want. And this is key; don’t be ashamed of what you truly want to do.
So what is your expertise? Do you have one? The key to being successful is being an expert in something. Anything! When you become an expert you will be in demand. When you’re in demand you will have more freedom to pick and choose what you want. You will be in control. You will be happier. And because you’re in control, happier and free, you will be more successful. Don’t be a generalist, become an expert! I hope this helps.
Good luck to you!
