Hypnotic Strategies for Choosing a Career
How to use deep relaxation and imaginative rehearsal to explore your perfect career choice
For most of us, the first time we considered a career choice was when we were very little, and some kindly adult leaned over and said “And what do you want to be when you grow up?”
It was simple. We wanted to be train drivers. Ballerinas. Clowns. Nurses. Astronauts. Chefs.
Aged four, you don’t know about accountancy, programming, politics, translation. Or anything else very useful about choosing a career.
Taking career advice from four year olds?
Unfortunately, even though you may be older now, you may still know as little about how to go about choosing a career that’s right for you as the average four year old who’s wowed by colourful uniforms or big machines.
Schools and colleges often have career information available. This tells you how many thousands of different ways there are to earn a living. But careers advice is often sadly lacking. How do you choose?
The place of money in choosing a career path
Of course, for many people the first consideration is how to make enough money to live on. This can severely constrain your choices, but should not be regarded as a necessarily ‘bad thing’.
It is important to be able to support yourself, and potentially a family. There are times in life when taking a job because the money is right is a good choice. But experience shows that pay alone rarely makes for career satisfaction.
So what do you need to do to make the best possible career choice for yourself, within the constraints that affect you personally?
Practical steps to choosing a career that suits you
Firstly, get to know yourself. What makes you tick? What sort of activities do you enjoy doing and never have to struggle to motivate yourself to do?
What talents have you got or can you develop? What kind of people do you like to be around? Think about whether you want your career to bring you recognition, or security, or challenge, or a sense of belonging to a team.
It can take time to find the answers to these questions. You may have to take several different jobs before you know the answer to some of them. You may have to be prepared to try different things, and not allow yourself to get discouraged if some of them don’t work out.
Nowadays, it’s usual for people to pass through several different careers as they mature. It’s rare to spend your working life in only one sphere.
How hypnosis can help you decide between career choice options
This can all seem very daunting! But there is something else you can do to give yourself a helping hand.
Choosing a Career is an audio hypnosis session which is focused on the psychological, unconscious aspects of career decision making.
Your head (your conscious mind) may be full of a mass of information about different career paths, so much so that it hurts.
Choosing a Career will take you to a deep place inside yourself where you can become a detached observer of the situation. This enables you to take a clear view of your options and identify those which are most likely to meet your specific needs and interests. And it will help you stay calm and relaxed.
