Sometimes being exposed to new possibilities makes us feel disappointed with where we are now. This listener is 48, in a job she dislikes, feeling like she’s failed and is not making a difference, and is discouraged by reading 48 Days to the Work You Love. Is it better to not know and remain in the status quo or to see new opportunities and ways to move into more success?
Episode #785 July 09, 2021
Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable. This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die. Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.
I’ve never been a big dreamer and now I just don’t have any dreams left at all.
I work when scheduled, I have no input into my employment scheduling, but I am scheduled full time and have no benefits for health care, no paid time off or no paid sick leave, this has been my employment since 2015.
What I’ve learned from you and others this last year is that people have more control over their lives than they think they do!
Your book is making me feel bad about myself.
This reader is referencing Chapter 2 – Who Would Hire Me and Chapter 3 – Yes, I do Have an Education
- Here are some of the questions at the end of those chapters:
- What in your training or experience makes you “employable?”
- What value do you bring to the table—whether or not you have a degree?
- What were your childhood goals and ambitions for life?
- Which ones have you been able to fulfill?
- How has your own reading and attending conferences increased your marketability?
- If it’s true that “We become what we think about,” where has your thinking taken your life?
