Just a year ago, I was where you are now—unemployed, unhappy and confused. I was broke and jobless, but I still had my spirit and will to succeed. Today, I am a successful career coach who helps others find this same happiness. I discovered a path to success that changed my life forever, and I want to share it with you.
This is not a gimmick or a business opportunity. You can use this method whether you want to work for a company or start your own business. Think of this more as a course in self-discovery that will allow you to quickly discover what career path and goals will make you the happiest and help you make a plan to get there.
If you struggled to drag yourself to your previous job, it is likely because you weren’t passionate about your profession or your skills weren’t being utilized properly.
You see, while most people believe that being laid off signals the end of their life as they know it, they couldn’t be more off the mark. The good news is that you can use this opportunity to set your self on the right path.
The truth is that most of us get comfortable in our routine and stick with our job because it is stable and guaranteed, plus we already have the knowledge and experience to do our job. Most people don’t have the time to get career counseling or read a gazillion books to discover what it is they want to do, so they stay at their mundane job because they think changing jobs would be time-consuming. So, even though they hate the daily grind and have to convince themselves to get out of bed and go to work every day, they still go day after day. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
It may be hard to believe, but some people actually have jobs that they are excited about, and it’s not because they push a button and make a million bucks—it is because they are passionate about what they do and legitimately love their work. You can find this happiness by being an employee or by starting your own business—it is different for everybody. The trick is finding what is right for you.
I, too, found out the hard way that my previous career wasn’t for me ….
… And I didn’t discover this until I was laid off. At first, I was devastated, embarrassed and thought my world was crashing down. How was I going to keep up on my rent? What would my (now ex) colleagues say? What would my family think?
I was depressed for weeks and losing more motivation by the day. The bills were piling up, my family was beginning to worry about me more and more as the days passed by and none of my interviews were panning out. It wasn’t until one day I woke up and the truth hit me on the head like a ton of bricks … I didn’t even like the job I had been fired from. And others could tell, too.
This is why I wasn’t getting hired. My disdain for my previous job was showing through during interviews and I didn’t even realize it. I had been too worried about applying for jobs that were exactly like my previous one that it never dawned on me to look for a job based on my skills and passion, rather than my experience and education.
As I said before, I have been where you are now. My experience inspired me to write this book because I knew there were others who were suffering after losing a job and who didn’t know what to do next.
I want to give those people the tools they need to survive this lay off and thrive in their next career. Just like you, I hated my previous job and eventually dreaded going to work every day because I was in the wrong industry and worked for the wrong company. I didn’t like the people I worked with and the company I worked for wasn’t utilizing my talent properly. In the end, I was the one who was suffering because I felt like I was losing my intelligence.
Talent and skills are just like language—if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. It was a terrible feeling. This feeling pushed me to discover how to find a company where I would get along with my co-workers and management. Using this system, I discovered that I had the desire to do something different—I wanted to teach people how to make their lives better. I wanted to share my knowledge and give others who are suffering in their careers the tools that helped me get to where I am today—doing something that I love, feeling confident, utilizing my talent and feeling content.
It breaks my heart to see people who have given up their dreams, so Adrenaline Proving Grounds is the support and WILL POWER that some are in dire need to push through their doubts and fight for their success.
