This book gives such helpful pointers that understudies can use to figure out what sort of occupation is best for them taking into account their abilities, interest and values. I preferred the viable perspective introduced here. You'll figure out how to round out a vocation application to amplify your shots of finding a meeting and you'll be given the devices expected to make a decent impact on your meeting. I am prescribing this book to a few individuals I know who are baffled in their present employments and work situation. Nice discourse about the distinction between picking a profession in light of energy and fund, as well, since we are all mindful that most vocation decisions still wind up wrong, particularly regarding the budgetary parts of a vocation. This is an incredible book that truly makes you think and I recommend anybody perusing this book to bring notes and record your contemplations as you experience the book. The bits of knowledge you'll pick up from perusing this book will help you move your profession chances to new statures. An awesome read for understudies, as well as notwithstanding for the individuals who don't care for the vocation that they've picked. This book is just an unquestionable requirement purchase for profession changers and the individuals who are despondent with their present vocation status. The writer gives the reader some exceptionally functional, sensible tips, on the most proficient method to find, channel and utilize your gifts for constructive individual and social results. Elegantly composed and simple to read. I gained such a great amount from this book. I highly recommend

How many of you have worked at a job you absolutely detested? Hands raised? Yeah, me too. Everyday when you clock out you’re already stressed out about coming back. No amount of time off eases the anxiety you feel when you’re working at a job that crushes your soul. Many of us feel, but I have to do it, I have bills, a family, besides it’s called work, I’m not supposed to enjoy it, right? Why not? The answer truly is, you don’t have to be miserable. Brian Cormack Carr’s book is a perfect guide on how to not only help you discover what is the career for you, but he shows what steps you can take in helping you obtain that dream job. Now the author does not make empty promises, he presents the possibilities of reaching your goals through detailed exercises and common sense practices. Carr shares his own personal experiences with you on how he dealt with working a job that left him empty and unsatisfied.

One of the things I loved most about the book was the way Carr broke everything down with questions to ask yourself, exercises to help you discover talents you may not even be aware you possess. It is a book you can come back time and time again and always find something new and helpful to get you on your journey to a more rewarding and satisfactory career. I would recommend Brian Cormack Carr’s book to anyone who’s unhappy with their job.

A decade ago I walked away from a 30-year career in advertising that was always interesting, very creative, and extremely lucrative. Why would I do that? Because it was simply not my calling. Without consciously seeking it, I discovered my calling was to be a spiritual author, speaker, and teacher. And by following that call, I experienced something my satisfying, well-paying advertising job could never give me: True Fulfillment! If you are not feeling fulfilled in your current occupation, read this book! If you are not sure what kind of work would be fulfilling, read this book! If you do know what kind of work would be fulfilling, but you don’t know how to go about manifesting it, read this book! I rarely give books a 5-star review, but this one deserves it. The process it offers for both discovering and manifesting your “vital vocation” is as practical as it is insightful. This book is extremely well organized, easily understandable, and incredibly thorough (without becoming tedious). It offers you a step-by-step plan for finding and realizing the work of your dreams. And it even offers you inspired advice on how to deal with the obstacles you will invariably run into—both external obstacles and those that are internally self-imposed. Whether you are currently working, or out of work . . . whether your finances are in order, or you are facing a fiscal crisis . . . read this book. I can’t think of single question or concern it doesn’t address.

There are many books about finding your passion, but as a career counselor, I highly recommend this book to individuals wanting to make a satisfying career transition. It is practical, well written and includes many good examples and exercises. I like the methodical and sequential approach Carr has taken without adding a lot of fluff. I also like the fact that it takes a "holistic" approach to finding a calling by exploring talents, values, environment and skills.

I especially appreciated the advice in Chapter 8 where the author discusses overcoming demotivation and procrastination...two barriers common to people stuck in their jobs and keep them from moving forward.

Another concept very useful to people wanting to change careers is the distinction between "ideal jobs" and "good enough jobs" and how and when to pursue each. In Chapter 9 the author introduces the 7-Step Emergency Job Loss Action Plan. Most people when they lose a job, don't have the time or temperament for introspection. Finding your "vital vocation" doesn't happen immediately and takes effort. Whether you need a job right away or have the luxury to explore your inner self, I believe this book provides good instruction how to do both.
