Do you often wonder “what if?” Do you live your life weighing the different paths you could choose or asking whether you would be happier if you chose a different route? Yes, it’s a natural instinct to wonder what could have been, but it’s also a huge waste of time!
With every choice, you gain some and you lose some. You gain valuable experience and insight into a world you may not have seen otherwise. The same goes for picking a job or career.
Sometimes we try something on for a career and we decide it’s not for us. That’s okay. You still need to look at each experience and decipher what was learned from the experience. What did you love about the position? What would you rather not experience again? What type of people did you work with? Did you work well with them? Why or why not?
Looking at each experience as a stepping stone allows us to rejoice in every experience that life brings your way. Each choice you make is a positive one and will lead you to bigger and better things!
There will never be a career in which everything is perfectly to your liking, but at least you can control certain things about your career choice that will make you happy to work in that industry. Happiness is what we’re all striving towards.
No regrets. Just REJOICE!
