he calendar has flipped to September, but your life hasn’t really caught up to where you want it. When it comes to your career, your boss is stubborn as ever and nothing exciting has come your way. In fact, it feels like you’re heading towards a predetermined destination chosen by someone else. If this sounds familiar, then, girl, you’re definitely flying through life on autopilot. “Most people are headed in the one direction for most of their life, because they’re trying to do everything the ‘right’ way,” explains Dr Dain Heer, author of “They don’t realise they really have a choice to go in a different direction. Their level of happiness is almost non-existent. They don’t have a sense that they’re actually creating their lives.” There is a way to shake things up and get the job and life you’ve always wanted — you have the power to make choices, after all.
