GET A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONDITION OF YOUR HEALTH
Finally, you have to consider your health before investing too much time in pursuing the career you have found fits your own personal purpose. If you love animals, but have too many allergies to a lot of animals, then becoming a veterinarian won’t work out very well for you. If you love working with children, but get sick every time you spend time around kids, then becoming an elementary school teacher might not work for you either. If you love gardening, but get asthma or break out in a rash every time you get too close to most plants, etc., a career in horticulture just might not work out very well for you either. If you love singing, but have a permanent jaw or neck injury that makes it painful after singing only a couple songs, then maybe that should stay a hobby; not something you should do every day all day. Last but not least, it’s important to use common sense about what careers work with any disabilities or handicaps you might be challenged with (i.e., hearing impaired, wheelchair bound, etc.).
So, how can you find out if your health situation will work in harmony with your career/purpose choice? Start out by getting a comprehensive health assessment as a way to help you understand your current health situation a little better, before you begin your search for possible careers to match your purpose. Here’s a great quiz to get you started:
Before you move on to the next step, write down whatever health considerations you have, so that you can keep those things in mind as you move on to your final destination in this quest: Finding YOUR purpose!
