“Tell me about yourself” is one of the most dreaded questions of any job search. Most of us have no idea how to talk about ourselves—where to start, what to say, or how to present ourselves in the most professional light.
Choosing to own your own life can be difficult, especially if those close to you have expectations that don’t align with what you want. In a career sense, this happens quite often. Companies are not generally in the business of helping you “follow your passion,” so breaking from that mold can be challenging.
It’s easy to get stuck doing a job that you’re good at, or that others tell you you’re good at, and not pursue what you love to do. However, taking that leap will lead to more joy, more success, and more longevity.
What if work was your real life, meaning your career aligned with your interests and passions, allowing you to live happily and work simultaneously? When this idea is put into action, you’ll find that the idea of work/life balance becomes unnecessarybecause putting more time and effort into one does not take away from the other.
