Did you just lose your job? Or, are you afraid you are just about to lose it?

I’ve been in your shoes three times in my career, and I know how painful it is and how you can sometimes lose hope. But, even if it doesn’t seem obvious right now, you do have a whole new world of career opportunities.

Right now is the best time ever to consider what you really want to do next with your life. Maybe you just want to find another job like the one you just lost. Or, maybe, you want to find a different job, a better job. Or, perhaps it is time for you to get out of the rat race completely.

Inside, you’ll find out what your options are, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and what to do next.

There is hope! Read, think, act, succeed.

This Ebook is provided in a PDF presentation format so it is easy to read and absorb.

Getting a good start

Now is the time to reevaluate what you

want to do with the rest of your life

Identify your Core Desires

(What do you really want?)

Identify your strengths

(What are you really good at?)

Move forward decisively

(Take massive action in the right direction)

Identify Your Core Desires

Identifying your core desires will help you determine what you really want out of life, and will help you leverage your passions and strengths to accomplish your core desires.

It will help you decide exactly what job, career, or business you want to have now. A core desire is not just a superficial “I want to be rich”, for example. It is the deeper reason why you want to be rich, such as “I want the freedom to do what I want, when I want, and where I want (and being rich will give me that freedom)”. A lot of people really don't know what they want deep down. You need to be different. Know what you want at the deepest heartfelt level and you'll be miles ahead of everyone else.

Identify Your Strengths

What are you really good at? Playing to your strengths is a strategy for long term success. It will also help you in your job search and interviewing process. Look inside yourself, be honest, and list the things you are really good at. Everybody is good at something. You are probably good at doing more things than you realize. You might ask your ten closest family members or friends what they think you are good at doing. Once you know your strengths, you want to focus on doing the things you are good at, and let others do for you what you are not good at. Make sure your next job or career plays to your strengths.

Move Forward Decisively

Nothing happens without action. You can plan and plan, and dream and dream, forever. It might be pleasant to plan and dream. But, nothing will happen unless you act on your plans and dreams. Do your planning and dreaming about what job, career, or business you would like to have. Then choose a course of action quickly and move forward decisively. Take massive action until you have accomplished your goals. You’ll be so glad you did.

So, now that you have identified your core desires and strengths, and are ready to act, what are your job or career options to consider?

Your Career Choices

Find a new job similar to your old job Find a new job that is very different than your old job

Buy a new job

Buy a franchise

Buy some other business

Start your own business

Your Career Choices

One Option To Always Consider

My personal opinion: At least half of all job seekers should be starting and building their own business (yes…you too), even when they get a new job (start a business part time on the side) But, don’t “jump off a cliff” and abandon your job search efforts to start your business. You probably need income right now, and you may not get enough income fast enough with any new business of your own.

Find a new job that is very

different from your old job

Try this if you hated your old job. If you loved your previous job, and you did it well, don’t necessarily try this approach.

You will need:

A in-depth reevaluation of what you want to do and what you are good at

A restructured resume that focuses on skills, experience and quantifiable results in the new area you want to get a job in Perhaps a “position proposal” that includes a description of the job you really want, and a proposal that you be the one to fill that job
