Think your jobs are leading nowhere? Read this.

I get it. Nobody likes to waste their time.

And maybe that's just what your last string of jobs feels like. All of that work for something that just pays the bills, or seemed interesting until it wasn't ... where has it gotten you?

Asking that question is a good thing.

It shows that you sense there's something bigger in store for you. But it can also lead to a lot of pain and frustration when you don't know what that something is.

 

So I'm going to tell you a story to help ease that pain, and then next week I'll show you exactly what you should be focusing on now so you can get where you're going as quickly as possible.

So there once was this girl...

She started out in retail, selling shoes. She hated it, but loved her employee discount. On a whim she snapped up some completely badass red boots...

Next she worked as an assistant in the design room of a company that made capes, and on a cold day someone offered her a sample to wear home...

Later, working an office job, she won an award at a Halloween party. It was a crown...

Realizing that she really preferred to work outdoors, she ended up on a dude ranch and learned to wield a lasso like nobody's business...

But it still didn't feel like the right fit. She struggled to figure out what to do next until one day she put everything on at once and became ... Wonder Woman.

It never felt like her jobs were teaching her much, or that they'd be connected, but they all formed part of who she became. And yours will have a similar effect on you someday.

Here's to gaining mad skills (and great accessories) with every new thing you do,
