I watched a Ted talk a few years ago and it’s still one of my favourites. Not only is it absolutely hilarious, thanks to the fabulously dry humour of the ‘dismal’ economist Larry Smith, but it’s also incredibly powerful and potentially life changing. (I’ve embedded it at the end of the post so you can watch it if you have 15 minutes.)
Larry Smith goes through a few excuses that people give for why they can’t pursue their dream career:
- “It’s just a matter of luck”
- “Only geniuses get to follow their dream”
- “I’m normal, I’m not obsessive”
- “I can’t now that I have a family”
And, of course, the real reasons that are more likely to be fear related: fear of looking ridiculous, fear of failure…
He ends his talk with that powerful word: UNLESS. You will fail to have a great career; unless…
With that in mind, I’m excited to announce my webinar:
Why Most People Fail to Fulfil Their Dream Career (And How Not to be One of Them)
In this webinar, I’m going to delve into more detail on the reasons why people fail to pursue and achieve their dream career; and I’m going to be grabbing onto that word, ‘unless’, to help you to get over those barriers and to succeed in finding meaningful work that you actually love.
Here’s what we’ll be covering:
- The 10 reasons why most people will fail to achieve their dream career
- The critical element you need to have in order to succeed
- The ONE STEP that will get you on the way to achieving that dream
- And more!
