No-BS Manifesting Course

by Alisa Princy (2020-03-05)

Much has been written No-BS Manifesting Course Review in the media about who makes what both by name and by profession. Whether PARADE magazine, the WALL STREET JOURNAL or other periodicals, there seems to be a focus on paychecks. What do doctors, lawyers and Indian Chiefs make per year? How little do the people who keep our streets safe, clean and in good repair make per year? How much do university presidents make vs. the teachers who educated our kids day-to-day. While I think this information is interesting, it only tells PART of the story. The paycheck is just a small part of any career, occupation or job. It is not just about the money. There are other factors that anyone looking toward a job, career or field should consider even long before college or university. Prerequisites Having desire is sometimes not enough. I always wanted to be a naval officer. Although I received an appointment to the U. S. Naval Academy, I was found while there to be color blind. The PREREQUISITE for a line officer in the U.S. Navy to have unimpaired color perception. Even though it was my dream, it was not to be and I left the Naval Academy to follow another career direction. Want to be a basketball player? Odds are if you are short it is not going to happen. Want to be musician but are tone deaf? Unlikely that success will follow. Desire to be an astronaut but afraid off small spaces and confinement? Think again. Interested in high finance but hate mathematics. Probably not the best choice. Some limitations, such as my color blindness, we are born with and cannot change. Others the strong preferences, likes and dislikes. More on that to follow. The point is - consider whether you are even "in the game" as your set your sights on a career. Talent What are you good at? Do you have a "gift"? Are you musical? Are you athletic? Are you mathematically talented? Do you write well? Do you have a knack for taking things apart and putting them together again? Do you have the "gift of gab"? Are you a talented public speaker? Are you a natural leader? Think about what you are really, naturally good at doing. This is the next area to think about after you get past the "prerequisites". If one has a natural talent in an area, it may be the launching point for a career that relates to that talent. Keep in mind it may be academic, athletic, artistic or it may be a manual or mechanical skill.
