 His boss helped him learn how to sell the company's services by recommending that he study manuals and take extra courses on his own time.

Thinking of yourself passively -- as being employed and, therefore, subject to the dictates of someone else -- can be fatal to your long-term success.In reality, you're the president of your own personal-services corporation. You're completely in charge of production, quality control, training and development, marketing, finance, and promotion.

You're in the driver's seat. You're behind the steering wheel of your life. It's up to you to decide how to utilize your talents and abilities in such a way as to bring you the very highest return on the investment of your time and energy.

To that end, here are four questions that you need to ask yourself on a regular basis:

  1. What do I most enjoy doing?
  2. How would I describe my ideal job?
  3. If I could have any job at all, anywhere, what would it be?
  4. If I won a million dollars in the lottery and I had to pick something to work at indefinitely, what would I choose to do?

look at your current job, and ask yourself:

  • Where do I want to be in three to five years?
  • What kind of work do I want to be doing?
  • What kind of people do I want to be working with?
  • What level of responsibility do I desire?
  • What kind of money do I want to be earning?
  • What part of the country do I want to be living in?
