30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 4 – Your Dream Job

Day 4 – My Dream Job

This is an interesting question, I’ll explain why.  So many of us feel the pressure to be ambitious and to set big goals for our lives. Sometimes those goals aren’t even what we want but rather what looks good to want. There is nothing wrong with having ambition. Be hungry for life. Just make sure you’re hungry for what you really want and not for what you think sounds most appetizing to others.

Coming back to the question, I have no dream job. For a few years I made up dream jobs. I wanted people to think I had a goal in life when I really did not. I told some people that I wanted to run Google (hey if you’re gonna lie might as well go all out right? ). I told others that I wanted to own a multi-billion dollar media company but the truth is I don’t have what it takes to be a business owner/ entrepreneur.  Also, I just don’t want to. Im 100% okay with being an employee.

I spent years trying to impress people with these made-up lofty goals partly because I wanted to fit in and also because it scared me to admit that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. And guess what, I still don’t know. The difference now is that I dont believe I need a dream job. I don’t need to frame my ambition in the world’s definition of what success looks like. Success will look different on me and that’s okay. I’ve learned that for me success is measured in the sincerity of my relationships with people, the richness of my experiences, living authentically me and in owning my time. I am ambitious in seeking to live my life on my own terms. A job is just part of the experience. Those are my goals.  I am not power hungry. I don’t need an important title next to my name.  My name is enough.

  1. Always be yourself no matter in what ever situation you come across. I have finally landed on my dream job of writing , I might not bring a dime to the table but, I am very happy that I am able to put my thoughts down. But this did not happen just like that, I had to work as an employee first, be a franchise owner and run 4 office and then when my son got to high school, I decide I quit everything and spend time with him. When he went out to college was the time I went through a lot of emotion, which finally helped me figure out this what I want to do. All the best.
