Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty…

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Ah, that good old question we’ve all been asked at some point during our childhood and adolescence (and even ourselves as we’ve grown up!) It would usually happen when you had guests over for tea and were put on the spot! Good times, eh?

Fast forward to now, there is never a right or wrong time to know what you want to do professionally. Some of you may have a clear vision and goal, whilst others may not so, and that’s cool.

We all work at a different pace

Everyone has different goals, motivations and dreams. No two people are the same even if you’re from the same family or social circle. This is what makes us all so unique and our journeys through life so interesting and varying.

However, it’s never too early or late to know what you want to be or at least think about.

Read biographies

Studying famous people in history, exploring their trials and tribulations, and which factors drove them to go on to become great historical successes is a direct and perhaps immediate way of connecting with inspiration. Sometimes we need a reminder of how powerful we are, even as individuals, and that we literally can change the world through real-life examples.

So, start researching! Find someone and read their life story – live in their footsteps and understand what made them tick. If you’re strapped for time but still want to learn more, social media videos, podcasts and audiobooks offer a faster way to access this information. Can you mirror their success?

Repeat positive affirmations

Reading and repeating short sentences with an uplifting message can inject positivity within you. They can give you clarity, focus and determination to do more instead of being stagnant and not moving forward. Maybe they’ll help you decide what you want to do in the future? Make your own up or read some online. Repeat daily and engrain a life-long habit of being kind to yourself with positive words.

Embrace new opportunities

Modelling, as an example, is a profession that you can do at any stage in your life with Models Direct as we embrace people of all ages and all walks of life. We are always requesting for people to come forward and join our modelling family – whether you have a newborn or you’re retired and thinking of what to do next. Explore our agency to learn more about us and our work. Maybe this could be your time to start something new and out-of-the-box.

The takeaway

Many people know what they want or just simply want to see a different rhythm in their current professional life. Whatever journey you’re on right now, we hope it’s a successful, beneficial and rewarding one. Take opportunities and chances to explore your skill set, your passion, and your life goals and certainly give modelling a go!
