By Madhurima Sil

Are you unhappy with your present job? Do you bewilder each time you receive a new job offer? Do you vacillate between your head and your heart when it comes to making an important decision about your career? So here's the second portion of chicken soup for a 'Dream Job' seeker's soul. Read on…

Here is an attempt to make all you unhappy career people realize that your job can be your tool to carve out happiness & satisfaction in your lives, provided the job you choose is by your choice or is a choice of people surrounding you.

Life may not give us a second chance but when it comes to our career, its far more than just one or two chances. Thanks to the numerous job consultants and job portals that have not only simplified our job search but also equip us with new job offers almost each day. One such portal is, which is India's number 1 job portal and has recently launched its international branch in the Middle East called For more information on these job portals log on to - jobs in India and - jobs in Gulf.

Our real challenge lies in availing these job opportunities in a way that won't leave us regretting in the future. And we often end up regretting when we follow other people's thoughts instead of our own heart. We first need to realise what we feel as right, is our own thought or is a thought coated by other people's thoughts. Following is a list of guidelines that will help tap your hidden colours that'll brighten up your career life and find your dream job:

Be as you are: Its really important to be your true self because stepping into a false persona usually leaves us exhausted at the end of the day. So be your true self as this way you will preserve on a lot of positive energy and as a consequence your productivity at workplace will also improve.

Failures are pillars: Failure isn't something anyone can avoid. Failure is merely a tool, a gauge that tells us whether we achieved our goal or not. The proper response to failure is always: re-assess your actions, regroup and try again. That's why failures are nothing but pillars, which make us stronger to take up more risks without letting us shatter.

Do what you enjoy doing: Your work shouldn't seem to be a mere job to you. Find a job that fulfills you, aligns with your passions and gives you energy instead of draining it out of you.

Your job gels with your life: Find a job that will attune perfectly into your lifestyle and will feel like a natural part of you. Its values will be same as yours and will not ask you to embrace values that do not resonate with you or to go against your beliefs. You will wake up every day excited about going to work instead of being dismayed about it.

If you had just 1 year to live: Imagine a situation that you have only one more year to live but need to continue your work in order to earn your living. Would you continue with your current job or would you switch over to a job that satisfies your heart? Think about it…

Take some time to let your thoughts wander beyond the confines of your normal routine and see the possibilities that exist. Take out a piece of paper and list them! Popular Motivational writer, Josh Hinds said, "While aimlessly waiting for their so-called SHIP to come in and change their life for the better, far too many people miss the boat that could actually carry them to a brighter future. They are often so afraid of testing new waters that they spend an entire lifetime waiting on the shore...Begin your journey now!"
