Emotions run our careers, and yet they are largely overlooked.
Career counseling usually focuses on identifying our skills, strengths and desires. However, the path to self realization and career building is far deeper than this, touching not only our passions, aspirations, and dreams, but also our biggest fears, doubts, pains, and insecurities.
The book Finding Your Career Path without Losing Your Mind deals with the principal emotions that directly impact our career. It is divided into eight chapters: love, happiness, self-esteem, fear, disappointment, anger, grief, and guilt. The writer explains how each emotion is related to our career choices and our own career management, offering tools and tips on how to tackle difficult emotions and how to cultivate positive ones in the course of our career development.
This book is an emotional and spiritual guide to personal growth in the career development process. Alongside presenting psychological theories and a business-minded approach, the author provides a spiritual outlook and includes tools like guided imagery and meditations. In addition, the book is spiced up with personal stories, examples, and quotes from various individuals ranging from the Buddha to Jerry Seinfeld.

Mind is suitable for you, if:
