CHANGE CAREERS WITH COURAGE
We are different people at age 20 than we are at age 30, 40, 50 or 60. We look at life differently and our values change too. That is why identifying your values is such a key part of career development which involves asking and answering questions of yourself about what is important to you, and observing what you feel passionately attracted to (as well as what you feel passionately repelled by).
10 Reasons for Pursuing Your Ideal Career
I have a short list of the top 10 reasons why you need to work at having your dream job. These reasons will be affirmed throughout this book as you read on.
