我最感激的事之一是我每天早晨醒来的时候有一份我热爱的工作。不止如此,难以置信的奖励便是你还被一群同样热爱他们工作的人包围着。维珍是一家以其快乐了,积极向上的职工而自豪的公司。

悲哀的是有很多人没有足够幸运地得到一份他们热爱的工作。当我最近看了一部由我儿子Sam的制作公司在生涯成就上做的短片Sundoy Pictures之后,感觉尤为明显。有几行尤为正中要害,特别是一个人解释改变职业生涯是怎么让他们感觉:

在我以前的工作中,我感觉每我是在很沉重地迈出着每一步,但现在感觉上我是在轻快地划过每一天。

我们都想有一个满意的职业生涯,但你应该怎么走才能使其实现?对大多数人来说最大的障碍之一便是恐惧,这很容易理解。你可能会发现你自己处在一个工资高又备受尊敬的职位;尽管你干的不那么开心,但离职走人将会是令人怯步的。

当大多数人想到冒险,他们会把其与消极的东西联系到一起,而实际上,他们应该把它视为一个积极的机会。相信你自己并让自己回到出类拔萃的轨迹上。无论那是否意味着为了让方向得以改变要学习一门课程,开始从事一份在你所向往的那种生涯阶梯中的入门级职位,或开始你自己的商业生活——如果你不试试的话,你永远也不会知道。

想为不做某些事情找点理由非常容易。然而,你可能会很惊讶当你把自己置身其外并致力于一个项目时,你手头上会有多少帮助。这不必成为一个自我挣扎的个例。当我们开始英国维珍大西洋航空公司时,那是一个非常渺茫的时间,但我很感激我找到了我的一位导师,莱克爵士——莱克航空的创始人——他能够提供给我一些专家意见并让我足以安心。

深入去看维珍团队,有数不胜数在组织中工作的员工们是如何找到他们梦想工作的例子今年,我很庆幸我能见到丹尼尔·斯托克斯,他为维珍澳洲航空工作并有着一段非凡的职业发展旅程。现在,年轻的飞行员丹尼尔,她过去曾经是航班空服人员,而之前,她曾在意见咖啡馆打工为飞行员训练攒钱。这个故事有什么寓意吗?永远不要放弃你的梦想!充实、满意的职业生涯正在等待着那些足够勇敢的人去找到它们。

 

英文原文:

One of the things I’m most thankful for as I wake each morning is having a job that I love. Not only that, it’s incredibly rewarding to be surrounded by people who also love what they do. Virgin is a company that prides itself on a happy, motivated workforce.

Sadly there are a lot of people who are not fortunate enough to have a job which they are passionate about. This was all too apparent when I recently watched a short film on career fulfilment made by my son Sam’s production company Sundog Pictures. There were a few lines that really struck home, in particular one person explaining how a change of career had made them feel:

In my old job I felt like I was plodding every step of the way, but now it feels like I’m gliding through life.”

We would all like to have a fulfilling career, but what steps do you need to take to make it happen? One of the major stumbling blocks for most people is fear, quite understandably. You might have found yourself in a well-paid and highly respected position; even if you’re unhappy in the role, leaving it behind can be a daunting task.

When most people think about taking a risk they associate it with negative connotations, when really they should view it as a positive opportunity. Believe in yourself and back yourself to come out on top. Whether that means studying a course to enable a change of direction, taking up an entry level position on a career ladder you want to be a part of, or starting your own business – you’ll never know if you don’t give it a try.

It can be easy to find reasons not to do something. However you might be surprised by how much help is at hand if you put yourself out there and commit to a project. It doesn’t have to be a case of struggling along by yourself. When we started Virgin Atlantic it was a rather uncertain time, but thankfully I found myself a mentor in Sir Freddie Laker – the Laker Airways founder – who was able to offer some expert advice and plenty of reassurance.

Looking inside the Virgin Group there are countless examples of how members of staff have progressed within the organisation to find their dream role. This year I was lucky enough to meet Danielle Stokes, who works for Virgin Australia and has a remarkable story of career progression. Now a young pilot Danielle used to be cabin crew for the airline, and previous to that she worked in a café to save money for pilot training. The moral of this story? Never give up on your dreams! A fulfilling career is waiting for those brave enough to find it.
