  • View your career and life to date as an outsider looking in
  • Make an inventory of your talents
  • Honestly review past behaviours and limiting thought patterns
  • Breakthrough limited beliefs and mindsets
  • Develop a realistic career vision and do not sabotage it with negative thoughts...there will always be some negatives to any decision
  • Research, research and research any new career/job you think may be suitable...this is an exercise that you HAVE TO GET RIGHT
