Traditionally, men used to be the only breadwinners in the family, while women stayed home and took care of the family. Later on, after the women's emancipation, things have changed. Women have had access to education and they have had the right to occupy any position that they want. The problem, however, is caused by the failure to choose a suitable job, and that prevents job satisfaction.
Prem Rawat, a peace ambassador who promotes individual serenity through messages of peace, advises on finding inner peace to build strengths and hopes in life. Yet, the problem lies in the fact that people do not know how to be at peace with themselves. As a result, it is difficult for them to make the right choice for their career.
How to be serene and guide yourself to the right professional path?
Know your personality traits
To choose the most suitable career for yourself, it is primordial to know your positive and negative traits. To do so, make a list of all your good qualities and your character defects. For example, if you like giving things to others and helping them, this means that you are generous. Generous people can be successful as social workers, nurses, or even as nutritionists.
Another instance is if you are caring and do not mind waiting, you are a patient person and can engage in a teaching position or personal coaching.
Identify the characters needed for the intended occupation
Take some time to think over your real interests and imagine yourself engaging in that activity for some years of your life. After gaining knowledge about your interests, it is time to make researches on the qualities required for the job you intend to do. For example, a university lecturer has to be well-organized, patient and good at meeting the objectives in time.
On the other hand, a salesperson needs to be persuasive, tactful and good at communication. To ascertain the future career which matches your personality, it is also probably helpful to use an online tool if a job counselor is not available. There are many websites available for that purpose on the internet.
Learn from notable public figures
To orient yourself to your professional path, it is helpful to learn from successful figures. Prior to that, a good knowledge of one's interests and characteristics is a must. For example, Prem Rawat, the founder of the TPRF Foundation, has been aware of the importance of peace since his early childhood.
By seeing the plight of the deprived people in his community at the age of 4, he decided to do something for humanity. Therefore, the peace ambassador gives peace education to people and carries out humanitarian acts through his peace organization.
In order to peacefully choose your profession, it is essential to have some degrees and work experience related to the desired position. Most hiring companies tend to favor applicants with at least 1 year in a similar field of work. Thus, it is a good idea to look for training opportunities before applying for a job.
Another helpful way is to act as a volunteer for six months or two years and build skills. The TPRF Foundation for example recruits benevolent individuals to bring their share to humanitarian development.
