When Jack Canfield talks about perseverance, he speaks from experience. His best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul series was rejected by over 144 publishers before going on to sell over 100 million copies. He advises to trust your instincts and asks does the career make your ‘heart sing?’
He mixes logic with a little emotion in giving career advice.
- Does the potential career make your heart sing? If you’re not experiencing joy as you think about doing something…then it’s off course for you
- Put your rational mind to work…do your due diligence about the path…for example, consider an internship
- Simply trust yourself…does it feel right?
- If it make sense and it feels good, pursue it…no decision is forever
