30 July: Coming back: Find a new dream

Finding a new dream after your career break travel

Day 30 of #YourBigBreakGuide. We're close to the end of 31 Days of Career Break Travel Tips.Here's something important you must do after your great career break travel adventure–Find a new dream.When I returned from my round-the-world trip in 2013, I felt empty. I thought, "I've achieved my biggest goal in life, everything else that comes after is nothing compared to it."I felt very empty. At one of my job interview personality exams, I scored a zero in motivation. My answer to the surprised recruiter was, "I've done the one thing I want to do and I don't have anything else now."I forgot that as human beings, we grow. And I forgot that there's still so much potential inside me.It wasn't until I started learning improv where I saw a new growth area. And slowly, I built my confidence again. Today, I perform monthly with my improv teams and even run an improv listing.Though this wouldn't be something you need to do immediately after your career break, remember that you can have more than one dream. And there's nothing to cap your growth.Sign up for the webinar on Aug 5 to learn how to know how soon you can take a career break to travel. http://bit.ly/careerbreak-webinar
