Finding your career is like finding your flavor in life

By Lariena Nokes

Garlic is an enjoyable flavor. It compliments so many foods and works as an ingredient in so many wonderful dishes.

Garlic has its own signature that cannot be replaced or faked.

Mandarin oranges are also really enjoyable for their own special qualities and possibilities. They can be enjoyed in salads or just in a bowl of fruit.

For the skilled cook mandarin orange juice can be reduced into the delectable sauce for mandarin chicken because the flavor is flexible.

In some cases garlic and mandarin orange can work in concert to provide a great result, even if you are not using both to their full potential.

If your tastes run sweet and you used the Mandarin orange juice in a glaze for custom donuts that would not be a reasonable place to add garlic and still expect a positive results.

When cooking knowing what flavors to work with can make your meal tasty or break it down to a wasted effort.

The trick is to learn what works and why. Careers are much like cooking, what you put into them shows in the final effort.

The skills you bring to the table may fit in to one career and function well there, even if you do not belong in that discipline.

Theologian William Barclay studied divinity with dreams of speaking from his churches own pulpit then ended up teaching, before finding his true passion as an author.

“There are two great days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why,” William Barclay said.

On the road to working out what flavor your skills are and what recipe they belong in for you to be truly happy, there are many choices to make.

You may indeed fit in with a career path related to what you really want to do and not totally belong there.

Finding the occupation that puts your talent to the best use and makes you happy, will allow your flavor to develop to its full potential.

Disney has joked about this very fact in the movie “Mulan.”

The ghost of Mulan’s ancestor talking about careers was clear about the matter.

“Well, we can’t all be acupuncturists,” the ancestor said.

The strength to be accepting of the fact that you may not be a true compliment to the career field you have dreamed of can be the leap you need to take to find where you will thrive and succeed.

A paradigm shift is a fundamental change in the basic concepts and experimental practices of a scientific discipline, but can also be a directional shift in thinking.

Seeing that something is almost right and looking for how to change your point of view can improve both your career and your rate of success.
