Ecourse to Overcome Addiction long-term (Step 4)

Obtain Purposeful and Impactful Employment

... A process of self-discovery and exploration

From A. Scott Roberts

Legislators, parole officers, counselors and psychologists know that purposeful and impactful employment keeps people off the streets addiction free and out of trouble…

The problem is, how can you help someone love their job and find meaning in it?

How can you make sure you find a successful career and build a life where addiction is no longer necessary?

You first start with understanding yourself…

Assessments, self-directed exercises and self-exploration will help individuals learn about their personality type, their interests, skills and abilities…

And with the proper tools, show them what careers are perfect for them so they can thrive and flourish in life…

 

Using brainwave entrainment audio has a huge impact on the effectiveness of meditation...

When you find employment in an area you love and find purpose in, it changes you…

But it isn’t just about obtaining a job, that’s not enough.

And that is what many rehabilitation programs offer….

It’s about obtaining a career that you find purposeful - one that gives you meaning and that you can thrive in…

This is what makes the greatest impact in long-term success…

Let me ask you something…

If you found something that you love to do, would you do it?

Finding purposeful employment doesn’t just make you happy, but it also boots self-efficacy, your self-concept and builds your self-esteem…

It gives responsibility, a sense of independence and structure… Something so desperately needed, especially to those with tough addiction issues…

According to research, about 70% of individuals that are admitted to an addiction recovery program were unemployed. And according to Platt, (1995) lack of employment was a major reason why recovery was not successful.

By having a career you really enjoy gives you a sense that you are somebody and someone that is part of society. It gives you purpose.

That is a valuable concept to addicted individuals that currently feel unloved or under-valued.

Through employment you build relationships with others who are responsible and have a positive impact on you.

Through gaining purposeful and impactful employment, you start building a new life….

This is what the Career Success course focuses on.

All the best in your efforts,
