Career Counselling: – IF ONLY I…… STOP the Regrets and start pursuing your dreams

    Posted in Career Counselling, Career Development, Career Planning    |    No Comments

Dream Big








If you could be or do anything in this life what would you do or be.  As children we have so many dreams about what we will do, be and become when we grow up but somewhere between childhood and adulthood our dreams become squashed, buried deep, hidden away or totally pulled apart and reworked because they do not fit our loved ones or societies view of who we should be.

So my question to you is “What dreams have you buried or given up on that would bring you fulfillment, happiness and joy”? Do not place any limitations on yourself such as if I only had a million dollars in the bank and did not have to worry about bills, the mortgage, school fees etc I would be or do xxxxxxxx.

Find a way of incorporating your dreams into your life it maybe that you start small for example you may have always wanted to start your own small business; start doing some research, enrol in a small business course, talk to people who work in the industry and have already set up their own small businesses.

By focusing on what you want (big picture) and taking positive small steps to incorporate aspects of the big picture into your life you will eventually see the realisation of your dreams.

Find the peace, contentment, fulfilment, happiness and joy that you have been searching for.  It is YOUR LIFE after all – You deserve to be HAPPY, content and fulfilled.  So take a risk, follow your dreams and be the best person you can be.  Life is too short for mediocrity.

Career Pathways

Which career pathway will you take to achieve your career goal?

In Blu Ripples previous Blog, Making the Dream Happen (Part 2), one encouraged you to define your rough idea into a SMART Goal both in the big picture and the first small step capacity.

Assuming you have undertaken the first step it is now the appropriate time to determine your path.   Using the example outlined in Part 2, Oncologist, one perceives that you believe that there is only one way to achieve this outcome.  Well I am here to tell you there is always more than one way it depends on how hard we look and investigate our options.

Did one get your attention?  Yes there is always another way to achieve your dreams!

The first step in becoming an Oncologist is to attain your Bachelor of Medicine and then specialise – correct?  Well not necessarily!

What if you don’t get into the Bachelor of Medicine – then what?  What other options are open to you? Read More

Blu Ripples – We help parents discuss and explore career options and career pathways with their teenagers

Blu Ripples Founder, Katherine Foster, 2010

On contemplation of this article ones mind wonders back to a conversation one had with a local elderly resident a couple of years ago.

The resident stated to the author that

to make a child successful in their professional and personal life that the parents “needed to teach their child all manner of things” from “feeling the grass between their toes to experiencing travel and all life has to offer”.
