How to decide if a profession is right for you
I have been thinking on this for a long time now. I want to become a life coach. And I have been wondering, do I have what it takes to become a good life coach? Will I truly be able to help people? It is not only the question of whether I will be able to earn from it, it is the question of what I can really do in this, will it make a real difference.
I started to think on the lines of falling in love. If I am in love with someone, will I like it, if I share something with the person and the other person just says it does not matter? No I won't like it. Similarly I cannot have a don't care attitude towards someone when I am in love with someone. If I don't care then I obviously don't love.
So to do complete justice to my profession as a life coach I need to be involved in it. There may be several things I can do without being truly involved in it. But to become a life coach I truly need to be involved in it.
I am a software profession and there may be many who may not be in love with the work they do but they are successful financially. But I think in becoming a life coach, if it does not mean enough to me then there is no point in success either and success would most probably be elusive.
I hope I make the right decision and move ahead firmly. Somewhere deep within my heart I have a belief that I can be an excellent life coach and will be able to help people greatly.
