This is the path to self-assessment. Exploring what you are passionate about to help identify a new career choice.

Did your traditional New Year's resolution include a career reinvention? Many people change careers because they dislike their job, their boss, or their company. Identifying your dislikes is often the easier part of reinventing your career. The next is working on your strengths. Begin with an honest assessment of defining you.

Do: Start with a Plan.


Ask yourself, ''What do I feel passionate about.'' What excites you? Most people find fulfillment by doing what they are good at. By evaluating your skills, interests, abilities and desires, you will be able to see a relation between what you are passionate about and what you excel at. These are the building blocks that you can turn into a new career. Many of your skills (such as communication, leadership, and planning) are transferable to what you want to do in your new career. Improving the skills you already have is a major plus and sometimes, learning a few new software programs is simply all it will require. Once you have identified what energizes you, spend some time researching the types of careers centered around those passions, the qualifications and if you are willing to take the steps required.

Do: Update your skills.
If the skill(s) you need to learn is one you could use in your current job, perhaps your current employer would be willing to pay for the courses. Remember this new career choice places you back at square one. Gaining a part-time job or volunteering in your new career field not only can solidify your decision, but also give you much needed experience in your new career. You might also want to consider temping in your new field. Whenever possible, work weekends to gain the needed experience.

Do: Remain flexible about everything.
Starting new can sometimes mean a new salary range, more traveling or even relocation. Set positive goals for yourself, but expect delays and change. Remember, the one person that can help or hold you back is You.
