When building a profitable practice, you must know your why. You must find your purpose. In finding your purpose, here are some questions you want to ask yourself:
Do you know how to find your purpose?
If you pose that question to several people, the majority will likely answer no. It’s because there’s a world of possibilities. People are afraid to try something new out of fear of the unknown. They often don’t know how to go about looking for what they should be doing. Here’s another question to lead with:
Is what you are doing now satisfying you?
Put aside the bills and your paycheck for a moment. Do you get a charge out of getting up out of every morning to go to work? How do you feel on Sunday evenings, assuming you start up work on Mondays? Do you dread having to get up in the morning on Monday, or does it excite you?
Another problem is that you may feel stuck doing something in which you don’t believe in. Suppose you work for a company that it isn’t doing right by the community. It may be legal, but you don’t feel it’s ethical. It pays well and this is why you stick with it. You even like many of the people who you work with. However, the company sells something that makes your stomach turn. An example of this could be a tobacco company. You need to ask yourself if you can continue working in an environment which doesn’t fit well with you.
What it will take to make changes to get out of your current situation and into something you enjoy?
It may require going back to school or at least training online. Luckily, there are several options available and many of them are cheap or even free. If you find that the path is well laid out, ask yourself are you willing to put in the time and make an effort. If not, you haven’t truly found your purpose. You either need to continue what you’re doing or find another path. Keep doing this until you are willing to put forth the effort.
You should explore your current situation to determine if you can change up your routine. For instance, ask your company if there are other opportunities within the organization that you can explore. If there are, they may ask you to serve two roles: your old position and your new position while transitioning. Working like this can require putting in overtime, but it gives you some options to explore your purpose.
