Feeling Stuck In Your Career? Add These 15 Podcasts To Your List
One of the most frustrating situations you can face when it comes to your career is feeling stuck, like you’re just spinning your wheels in the mud and getting nowhere. Even if you could free your car from the muck, you wouldn’t know which direction to drive.
Trust me, I get it. I’ve been there before—more than once. So have many of my clients. Some people say that your happiness shouldn’t be tied to the job you do, but I don’t buy it. When so much of our time awake is spent working, why should we settle for jobs that are unfulfilling or that leave us downright miserable? Finding your perfect-fit role takes some deep inner work, like identifying your Genius and Purpose and learning how to apply each to your career. But sometimes you need external inspiration too.
In light of this, I’ve put together this list of 15 fantastic career-focused podcasts. When you get a chance, give one (or more!) a listen. Hopefully they’ll help you see a little more clearly which step you should take next.
