05. How I knew I was on the wrong career path and what I did to change it

Published on: 10th August, 2022

Vulnerable podcast ahead!

We're gonna dive deep into those sticky feelings of regret.

In today's episode, Dr. Jasmine opens up about a topic she doesn't touch on often: when she knew she stayed on the wrong career path, even when she knew it wasn't the right one. Through personal realizations and mindset shifts, she shares how she found the right path for her.

Remember: Just because you're good at something doesn't mean you need to make it a career. You can have strengths you don't like, and you deserve a job that you're not only good at but also genuinely LOVE.


In today's episode, we cover:

  • Dr. Jasmine's journey entering her career path
  • Showing gratitude for yourself (even when you don't immediately listen to your gut)
  • The pains of external praise
  • 4 beliefs to step away from the path that isn't yours to connect to the one that is
