Hey there! As my regular readers know, I’ve been posting about finding your personal calling or your “personal legend” since last few weeks. Today is the third post in this series. (You can check out previous posts here)
Last week, I asked you to gather basic information about the field of your interest. For example, if you want to become a lawyer find out the necessary qualification and where/how to get it. If you want to be an athlete, find a coach/training academy.
The next step is a big one. I think the best way to know whether you can do something is to actually do it. You never know if you never try.
the next step is to actually try it out
Yes. Do it. Whatever it is that you want to become, imagine you are already there and act like one:
1. Is there an internship available in the field you are interested in? Can you apply for it?
2. Is there a part time job available? Does it capture the essence of what you think your ideal job would be like?
3. Do you know the subject well enough? Join an on-line course or take a class in your local community college.
4. Is there some kind of competition being held? participate.
I think you get what I’m trying to say. Find a way to do what you want to do. It doesn’t matter if it is small or it doesn’t pay. Your job is to find out whether you actually like this kind of work or is it temporary fascination.
So, today’s tip is to try. Try a number of things. Keep on trying until you find the one thing that clicks. Best of luck!
