I taught school full time for 30 consecutive years. That certainly qualifies as a “teaching career.” Now I’m working to establish myself as an author, and have over a decade already invested in my “writing career.”

According to statistics, the average American has four to seven careers after the age of 25. This stat is based on data that says adults normally stay in the same job for about five years. But a pay-the-bills “job” is certainly not the same as a bona fide “career.”

I have blocked all my “friends” on Facebook who complain about “work.” If you don’t like what you’re doing, whose fault is that? And if you’re busy spouting negativity all day and night, you’re lowering the universal vibration, eliminating the vibration of abundance, and setting yourself up to be stuck in a dead end job forever!

Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” In other words, if you choose wisely, set your intentions and do what you can to move toward your goals, you’ll quickly find yourself enjoying not a “job,” but a long-term “career.”

Just two careers, according to statistics, makes me below average. Yet I believe it’s proof that I am totally blessed! I have been fortunate enough to work at things for which I have a true passion. May you also find your joy(s).
