Top 10 Core Beliefs For Career Coaching:

  • Everyone has a different path towards success.
  • Sometimes if we just sit back and listen, we may just find our answer.
  • Stop thinking about “What If” and start saying “Why Not”.
  • Failure is a new way of gaining something positive and growing stronger from the experience.
  • Gaining a cultural experience can be key to helping you adapt to a more global community.
  • “You” time is always important for growth.
  • One act of kindness can go a long way.
  • A major or degree is not a one size fits all in the job market.
  • “GPA” is important; Goals, Perseverance, and Attitude.
  • Change can be good even if it is scary to think about.
These 10 core beliefs have gotten me through a lot of challenging situations and have continually helped me grow both personally and professionally.
