Did you ever watch someone in action who is so clearly doing what they’re supposed to be doing in life? It’s so satisfying.
For example, back in November when My Night at the Grammys celebrated the 50th anniversary of the awards with its top 25 moments, I was particularly struck by Melissa Etheridge’s performance of Janis Joplin’s “Piece of My Heart.” It wasn’t just the musical aspect, but the energy and radiance she projected while performing. You just know as you’re watching her that this is a person using her gifts. Check it out on YouTube if you have a shred of doubt.
Or Duff Goldman, the host/baker of Ace of Cakes on The Food Network. I watched him deliver a stunningly intricate Taj Majal cake to the couple who had ordered it and it was hard to say who was more delighted, the couple or Duff as he watched their reaction. He knew his team had created a work of art and his pride was palpable.
As a life coach, you want to be able to guide your clients to that kind of vocational nirvana. The thing is, in most cases there is no clear path or absolute step-by-step guide. Unless you want to be a doctor, where the educational requirements are a given, or an accountant, where the process to CPA is pretty clearly laid out, career searches can be a bit haphazard. That’s why confidence and openness are the most important aspects of the job hunt.
