The Daily Job Hunt

What do you really really really want?

When you were growing up, your parents and teachers likely never asked you, “hey, what do you really really really WANT?”

On the contrary, they often said things like “you can’t just do whatever you want,” and “you need to grow up and take responsibility.”

Being mature and taking responsibility are valuable, but why are they often equated with pain, and squelching your desires?

Instead, why not unleash your true desires?

Sure, you might need to earn it with real effort, but happiness is your birthright.

Go after it. Dream big. No one can stop you, except yourself.

(FYI, you can uncover self-knowledge about your professional desires via the exercises in our free Career Crash Course).
