Introverts, extroverts, outgoing, withdrawn, shy, bubbly – all of these words are used to describe people and the unique attributes that define their personalities. They can also be used to help you define the right career. It stands to reason if you’re an introvert, a career in the entertainment industry might not prove best for you. By the same token, extroverts would likely be miserable in the role of a freelance writer who works out of his home. A. Harrison Barnes, career coach and the founder of, says an honest evaluation of who you are, what you’re passionate about and a review of your particular skill sets is the first place to start. Also, this is a great time to delve into your untapped talents for further insight on which career will allow you to flourish.

You also have to be realistic, too, says Barnes. Just because you’re passionate about the law doesn’t mean you can walk into a law firm and demand a partnership. Common sense tells you a degree in law, along with admittance to your state’s bar association is required. You can, however, pursue your education to fill the role of a paralegal and from there, continue forward in your quest for a law degree. Invest in yourself! Make the sacrifices go after your calling in the legal field.

Too many times, we find ourselves living out someone else’s dream. Mom may have wanted a doctor in the family and as a result, those grueling hours spent as a resident in a hospital, in your opinion, were nothing more than a waste of what you believe your calling to be. There are thousands of artists who have the title of “Dr.” before their names and are unfulfilled.

It’s also important to keep your own insecurities in check, says A. Harrison Barnes. Too many times, we settle in one career because we don’t have the confidence to pursue that degree in meteorology. Becoming your own worst enemy will never allow you to realize the career you were born to do. When you look back on your life, you will regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did do, says the founder. Whether it’s a career in the legal sector or you want to earn your living with a career as an art historian, it’s up to you to make it happen. Know this – the time is now.

Do some soul searching, ask yourself the tough questions, including why you’re settling for a job when it’s a career you really want, and then make a move. There’s no time better than the present and there’s no one better to chase your dreams than you. There’s nothing worse than a life unfulfilled.
