I promised you 5 Great jobs to inspire others, so here is the list right off that bat:
3.Motivational speaker/public speaking
I can think of many more but this is a good start. Are you happy in your job? Love getting up and going every day? Fancy a change? Our jobs define so much of who we are, and they say if you find a job you love, then you never have to work another day in your life. Do you agree? I am a career chameleon. A journalist gave me the title during an interview, and I have since adopted the name as my own.
I have been looking into the concept of those who feel they do not have one true calling, those that cannot find their passion and those you have no idea what they want to do. Emilie Wapnick has a TED talk on this subject. You will hear me talk about her often and her concept of multipotentialites. You can have a listen to her inspiring talk here. I started my career as a model. Then a series of dipping-my-toe-in-the -water ensued; A car mechanic, A hypnotherapist (I can put you to into a deep trance), An interior designer and then a chef. I studied as a chef and a baker for five years, worked in some restaurants, opened a bakery, closed a bakery and then wrote seven books and did lots of TV. I do lots of TV now still, mainly in the States, which I love.
However, do you know that feeling inside of your gut or a niggle in your mind? Something which is telling you to do more/something different? I have that niggle. I had it when I was a model, and I have it now as a chef. I am going to hold on to the shoreline line that is baking with one hand, while with the other hand, start to navigate my unchartered waters of personal development and empowering others to succeed.
I would love to be a facilitator in helping people to lead happier, more fulfilling and more enriched lives. Therapy is something which has always helped me process the pains of the past, and I looked in to become a therapist myself, but I will leave that one on pause for now as it's the personal development field and getting people to reach their life goals which has captured my attention.
Starting something new and fresh is exhilarating, exhausting and often, confusing. But if you feel that you have a calling, if you feel that there is something you really want to do or if you feel that you need to turn pain which you may have endured into some kind of purpose or passion, then I urge you to give it a go. It might take many late nights, early mornings but just start. There is no right way to go about things, everyone's path is different. But if you have a chink of intuition pulling you towards something, and tugging on your daily thoughts, then just start plotting and planning today. Give you self the gift of that.
Do head over to my podcast channel on Anchor. You will hear me talk more about this here, it's a five-minute podcast. I am also starting to interview some empowering people who have an inspiring story to tell, and or who have taken the career leap of faith to follow the life of their dreams. You will find my channel here:
Comment below and let me know how you get on with it all and tell me other careers which you find inspiring.
