Cultivating A Career Of Purpose And Passion

So many people spend forty plus hours a week at work. If the present moment is our true gift, are you squeezing the most out of your life? Many people hold the perception that you need to have a job to make money in order to do the things you enjoy doing but what if we actually made money doing the things we loved! Every day could be an opportunity for fulfillment of our best, highest self and our purpose in this lifetime.



In my training at IIN, I learned about the importance of the twelve areas of primary food, which are all the things in our life that nourish and feed us, the food on our plate being secondary nutrition. Career is such an important area to invest time into finding fulfillment and balance in, because we have the habit of spending so much of our time there. It's also important to note that what served us ten years ago, may no longer be serving our expanding self and we may need to check in with ourselves and reevaluate as needed. Choosing a career that stimulates, excites, and fulfills us verses drains, overwhelms, or bores us could mean the difference between living a healthy life full of vitality or feeling stressed, depressed, and unfulfilled, which can have dramatic negative effects on our overall health and wellbeing.


When we do what we love, and love what we do, it is one of the best ways to honor this life we have been gifted with. We have all come into form with innate talents and gifts that all too often can be overlooked because they come so easily to us. Finding that perfect overlap where we know what we are good at, how we can use it to be of services for the greater good and then receive an income for it, is the sweet spot where the magic happens. Going to work, no longer feels like something you have to do but something you look forward to because it allows your soul to sing.


“Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”

~Martin Luther King Jr.


I invite you to play with this quick exercise and allow your imagination to run, as you dream big.

  1. What has always come easily for you, and find simple joy in the act of doing?

  2. How could you use those innate skills and pleasures to sure the greater good?

  3. Brainstorm your superpowers and passions to dream up an epic career journey.

  4. Dive into dreaming about different career paths and imagine where they could take you in the long run.

  5. Hang out with folks already living your dream field for inspiration, tips, motivation, and guidance. Also, vibrational calibration is a real thing!!!

  6. Attend social events to create authentic connections that make you visible as an expert in your field.

  7. Shoot your shot with potential employers, contact individuals in your field of interest and ask questions as well as put your name out there as a potential option if an opportunity presents itself. Remember, bring plenty of good vibes.

  8. Remember, finding your dream career might be a wild ride with a few twists and turns along the way, so why not practice patience and contentment along the way and enjoy the adventure!




If cultivating a new career path isn't in the cards for you at this time, there are also ways you can enhance and love where you are and bring more fulfillment to your everyday work life!




  1. Try projects that light a fire in your belly! Let your boss know what gets you buzzing – it's where you'll shine brightest!

  2. Build your squad with folks who've got your back and cheer you on.

  3. Embrace feedback like a boss and level up your skills.

  4. Treat yourself to mini celebrations for hitting those milestones. Whether it's a quick massage or a leisurely stroll, nourish yourself like it's your main course.

  5. Spruce up your workspace with some fresh blooms, a cozy chair, and motivational decor to keep those good vibes flowing.

  6. When it's time to move on, keep doing what lights you up. Hunt down gigs that fuel your passions, and don't forget to stay in touch with your old crew. Networking is key!

Finding work that you love will nourish all areas of your life and overall health. Chances are, you’ll experience less stress, find yourself in a better mood on a regular basis and have more time and energy for creativity, while you connect to your greater purpose. Changes like this always take time, and I encourage you to find a slow, yet consistent pace towards doing what you love and loving what you do.


When we are able to show up for our days, knowing we are making the world a better place with our own little ripple effect, each moment is a gift and an opportunity to feel the love, peace and fulfillment that is available to each of us. When we truly know who we are and what fulfills us, we can gift the world with the present to our presence.


All the love,

Pamela
