4 Pillars of a Fulfilling Career:
An average person spends somewhere between 50% and 80% of their waking hours at work. This takes a lot of time out of our day and consumes a lot of our energy. It is no surprise that a number of people are unhappy with their careers. In a nutshell, we are trading our precious time for frustration and money. The important thing here is, were you feeling this frustration when you were running for your career? Why does your whole life feel like sh*t? We are not implying that you don’t love your work, but you aren’t comfortable with the way you are currently spending your time. You see, the problem is that you don’t have a fulfilling career. That is, you aren’t getting what you expected from your career. There are four pillars of a career, and if these pillars aren’t fulfilling, you feel sad about it.
We are all paid a salary for our work. The amount of money we receive makes you feel your work is worth it. However, if you feel you are paid less than what you value, you have a problem with this pillar. We are not talking about status or materialistic things. Imagine your colleague who is less experienced than you but is receiving better compensation than you. This makes you feel less compensated. Now you can’t do much about your colleague’s salary, but you can save your money or look for a better job that compensates enough for your job. Moreover, work hard so that your superior sees your worth.
2. Work :
We don’t always get what we want. When we run behind on money, we often sacrifice the type of work. This leads us to the point where we sacrifice our choice of work for a job that pays more, but we hate doing it. Let’s take the entertainment business as an example. A lot of people like singing, dancing, and acting, and they pursue it in theaters and plays. As we all know, it is very hard to earn big bucks in this sector. An ambitious person might change his work for better pay. If that is the case, we suggest you let go of either work satisfaction or compensation in such a case if you want a stress-free career.
Everyone has a different personality and set of preferences. Some like the lifestyle in the big city; others want a quiet place. Hence, you should choose a job that suits your personality and current goals. For example, if you don’t like traveling, then don’t take a sales job where you don’t have to travel a lot. This seems like common sense, but you would be surprised at the number of people who have adopted this lifestyle. Even a change of city can be a big disaster for many. You need a job where you can live the way you want.
No matter what anyone says, everyone wants to feel valued and important in their career. People don’t want to change the world or help a million people, but they want to make a meaningful contribution, even to a few.
When we do that and see the happiness in their eyes, the feeling is unmatchable. That is why we always want to be in a similar position. For example, a lawyer might leave a big firm job to help someone. They aren’t worried about money or status. Even a mild contribution is enough to make us feel happy. So if you don’t get that contribution from your work, you can always do charity to feel important.
How can you have a perfect career?
You need to realize that we live in a competitive world, and there is no such thing as a dream career. However, if you work hard enough, you can get close to a perfect career. The key to that isn’t related to smarts, education, or intelligence, but your commitment to your career.
You start by creating a plan that is realistic and achievable. You can ask a few of your friends and family to look over the plan.
The next thing is to go out there and start working. No matter how small the job is, you need to hustle and realize that everything big starts with something small.
The next critical step is to accept that there will be many setbacks and failures. Don’t feel demotivated; instead, take those criticisms to heart to improve your career.
Now : what is stopping you from fulfilling all the four important pillars of a career?
