Are you ready to make a change? Feeling like you are at a crossroads in life? Thinking of a career change? You’ve always been a social person and can plan a party like nobody’s business. Everyone thinks you should make the move and would be an amazing Party Coordinator. But you’re not 100% sure and lack the motivation to make the change. Motivation is a funny thing and can come from all sorts of people and places.
Motivation… To Make Changes…
We all need motivation, in life and in work. When I was in college, I was given advice that I have never forgotten. These morsels of wisdom have helped motivate me over the years through my various jobs and career changes.
In my first year of college a professor pulled me (a young woman with little confidence and self-esteem) aside and told me “You can do anything you want and succeed at it”. Besides my mother, no one had ever said that to me. He helped me understand that if I put my mind and energy to it, I could handle anything that came my way.
The following year, while working my full time job (to put myself through college), a customer shared a condensed version of his story with me. In his mid-forties he went back to college so that he could change his career. He emphatically told me that it is never, NEVER, too late to make a change in life, both in your education and career.
This was extremely hard for a twenty year old who was working as hard as she could to make her way through college and embark on what she thought would be her one and only career. Though I can’t remember either of those wise men’s names, those motivational words of wisdom have really encouraged, driven and motivated me and even precipitated my career change to the event and meeting planning world.
Have a Look at This…
We all find value in different places, from the different things that we see and hear. Have a look at what may be the best motivational clip out there. It will inspire you. Not only in your event and meeting planning career but in all areas of your life.
