A new career, a new life
We know that the only thing that is constant in life is change, and this of course also happens professionally. Lately, more and more people want a new career, a new life, because they feel that the work they are doing at the moment no longer brings them the necessary satisfaction. Any change in career can bring us closer to the job we dreamed of. When we do everything with passion we reconnect with ourselves, with our potential and with the joy of living.
We already know a lot of people who left high positions, who graduated from law and IT faculties precisely because they lacked something, passion. Dr. Deepak Chopra says in his books, that: unfortunately for many the service is, rather, a source of stress, than a fulfillment, this is how diseases and early aging appear. The world becomes a better place when we do what we love, putting our personal talents at the service of others and ourselves.
In today’s increasingly insecure labour market, a change in profession is increasingly common. Many are losing their jobs, their incomes are changing and in these times of crisis it is good to consider a retraining. Professional courses at prestigious institutes can provide us with a dream job or why not open our own business. There are countless options on the market in terms of professional orientation courses and it is always good to choose the best option, which will give us the certainty that what we are doing will have recognition.
