As a Career Counselor who has spent much of my vocational life helping people to define and attain goals, I believe that everyone, with a little help and a little work, can discover their passions, define their life purpose, and find meaningful work. This defining of life's passion and purpose and the subsequent discovery of meaningful work, I think, is the key to something much bigger - a more peaceful planet.
Inherently, people are good, and if they take the time to find the passion that exists within themselves, they will discover not only their passion to be good, but also that the expression of that passion in their work leads to happiness both for themselves, and for those who come in contact with them. This, in a very poignant way, helps to improve our world. And so, in the same way, I see myself as helping to improve our planet by pursuing my passion - to help others discover theirs - through career counseling.
Here are some of my favorite quotes pertaining not only to career counseling, but also to life in general...
