Career Coach: Revolution, Not Resolution
Make sure the changes you make bring you closer to the person you want to be. Verbalize the changes you want to make to others and yourself. For example, if you dream of being a voice over artist, but currently work as a car salesperson, tell people you are an aspiring voice over artist. Visualize yourself as the person you want to be and pretty soon you'll see that person in the mirror.
