First Step Towards Career Happiness: Gain Self-Awareness
Play • 16 min

One of the questions I get a lot is “How do you coach people? How do you help people find fulfillment in their careers?” 

True happiness in a career is possible only when what we do is aligned with who we are.

Too many people are unhappy, feel stuck, and don’t know what to do next. Why? Because we overthink and underact.

In the next 3 episodes, I’m sharing with you the 3-Step framework that I use to coach people out of jobs they hate and into careers they love. This framework has been proven effective in transforming careers and the lives of many professionals.

Step 1. Gain Self-Awareness – Learning about ourselves and knowing our values are the first step towards discovering work that is aligned with who we are.

Step 2. Overcome Internal Obstacle – Many of us stand in our own way of living the life we want, because fear stops us from taking action. It is crucial to overcome internal struggles, learn how to reframe failure and rejection, and be able to manage negative inner-voice.

Step 3. Take Action – It’s only through action that our lives will change. We need to learn how to create career vision that is aligned with our values, and then take steps and actions towards the career that gives us joy and meaning.

I am talking about the Step 1 Gain Self-Awareness in this episode, and will cover Step 2 & 3 in the next two episodes.

In this episode, I share how we can gain self-awareness by learning about our values.

1) What is a value, and how it is different from morals or ethics

2) Where our values come from

3) The importance of living our own values and not those of others

4) How our emotions tell us what values are important to us

5) How knowing our values helps us to make important career & life decisions
