Re: INFOBUS September 27th 2018: Getting to know the ReachOut Online Community Team with Amirah

@Bee woah! Q's on fire tonight!

 

My 3 tips to succeed would be

1. Self-care, nothing is more important, especially in this field.

2. Always be willing to learn. 

3. Check your intentions, and do it regularly. (Happy to expand on this one if it's not clear? )

Where's your happy place? Bali! Haha or anywhere outdoors. Nature is the best healer Smiley Happy

 

What's your favourite thing to do on weekends? Go out for brunch, dance, and visit my family!

 

What goals do you have for the next 5 years? I have been considering doing my masters in SW. I'd also love to do research in how certain external pressures forms and shapes our identity and sense of self.

i agree! nature is amazing. i find going for a walk in the botanical gardens or just sitting and watching the waves to be so refreshing and healing too.

i love the sound of your goals, what an interesting research project that would make too!

Thanks @Bee Smiley Very Happy 

 

My pleasure Smiley Happy People join this industry for all sorts out reasons. Some, because they want to make a positive difference in someone's life. While it's noble, it can also set you up to fail. When you rely too heavily of the outcome of your effort, for example,  someone working through an addiction, sometimes it can take years for that behaviour to shift. It's important to not tie "success" to the outcome you're hoping that person will achieve. And rather see them for where they are and journey with them. So I feel it's an important question for every person in the field to ask themselves, otherwise job dissatisfaction and burnout may start to present.
