We live in a time where opportunities abound, those that are willing to do the work and spend time connecting will find many doors are already open. Spend time learning about the opportunities you have identified.

2. Which industry attracts you?

Just go with your gut feel. What did you like when you were in school? Which subjects did you excel at? Which books to you enjoy reading?

3. Once you have identified your industry of choice, its time to identify a specific career in that industry

Just start writing a story of your perfect career. How does your perfect work day look like? What do you spend most of your time doing? Who are the people you spend the most time with? Then use the words you wrote down and select a few key descriptive phrases and start doing a Google search.

4. Get more detail on what you enjoy doing

Use free online assessment tools to help you get words to describe your perfect career.

5. Once you have identified your perfect career, research what qualifications you might require

The best way to learn is to join a company that does what you want to do. Even if you do not have the correct qualifications, you can always offer to work for free or in a menial job and learn from people in the company.

This will give you a very good idea that the job and career is about and if you really want to do this job.

6. Build and begin to implement your plan

It is important to learn at your own pace while implementing your plan, getting more experience in your chosen career or business and growing your skills and competencies. Make this recipe a natural part of your day-to-day life.
