Assess your strengths: Gain valuable insights into your skills and areas for growth

In our last blog post, we ignited the spark by exploring Desire, the first step in the DREAM framework for igniting a fulfilling career path. Now, we’ll build on that strength by delving into the “R” of DREAM: Rating. This involves taking stock of your desires and prioritising them based on their true weight in your aspirations.

Prioritising Your Passions: From Spark to Strategy

Imagine your desired career as a constellation: myriad aspirations twinkling in the vastness of possibility. However, not all stars shine equally bright in your sky. The Rating stage empowers you to identify the most luminous desires, guiding you towards a focused and fulfilling career path.

Unveiling True Priorities:

Let’s explore how a DREAM Career Coach can help you rate your desires:

  1. The Why Behind the What: Start by revisiting your identified desires. Delve deeper, exploring the “why” behind each one. What motivates you towards each potential career path? Understanding your underlying motivations helps prioritise desires that resonate most deeply with your values and purpose.
  2. The Feasibility Factor: Not every dream translates perfectly into real-world options. Your coach will guide you in assessing the feasibility of each Desire. Consider required skills, training, market demand, and potential challenges. Realistically evaluating possibilities, you can prioritise aspirations with a higher chance of success.
  3. Passion Meter: Imagine a scale of 1 to 10, where 10 represents pure, unadulterated passion. Rate each Desire honestly. While feasibility is essential, passion remains the driving force. Prioritise desires that score high on passion and feasibility, setting you on a path fueled by genuine excitement.
  4. The Harmony Test: Consider how your various desires intertwine. Do some complement each other, offering a holistic career path? You envision creativity combined with problem-solving, suggesting careers in design thinking or social entrepreneurship. You create a more fulfilling and integrated career vision by seeking harmony between desires.
