Get to Know Yourself Better
This is something that nobody tells you, but I, as a career coach feel the need to tell the world that what you will get in your life, depends on what you think that you deserve. The more, the less you believe you deserve depends on how much you truly know yourself. As I’ve said, 2014 is the year of technology progress but it’s also the year of personal growth of spiritual evolution. Get to truly know yourself and find out what you really want in life. It could be that the bad luck you’ve had so far with getting a job is due to the fact that that’s not really what you want to do in life.
