Lack of Self-Knowledge: Reason #2
#2 They think it’s too difficult
Yes, it takes work, but it is also exciting because it focuses on the most important person on the planet—YOU!
JOBS, CAREER, WORK
We’re talking jobs here, careers, work.
Imagine you are back in school.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR LIFE’S WORK?
Grab a piece of chalk.
Go to the front of the room.
Turn your back to the job wall.
Over your shoulder, throw a piece of chalk at that wall.
Wherever it strikes a brick, that’s your job for life.
You can’t aim it or have second tries.
Throw, hit, accept.
Do you like that idea?
A THROW OF THE DICE OR WORSE?
You don’t know yourself well enough to select a college program or a job that suits your abilities, talents and gifts, so you choose at random.
Because you do not KNOW your talents, gifts, and abilities. Or you go into a job because your father did it. Or because your friends are going into it. Or because it’s the ‘next big thing’. Or because it’s trendy.
BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW ANY BETTER?
There are circumstances that prevent us from doing what we were meant to do. Or even trained to do.
They don’t have a choice. That choice was taken from them by war or some other catastrophe.
YOU HAVE A CHOICE, BUT IT REQUIRES SELF-EXAMINATION
We just have to understand that there IS a choice, and we need the information to make it responsibly, carefully and successfully.
It isn’t difficult to “get” it if we know the consequences of NOT getting it.
