Irina, a Guardian Provider single mom, may need to rethink her loyalty to a hospital that is in financial
trouble and at least investigate other nursing possibilities in her city. If she has already started her
investigation, she may prevent herself from being in financial need if the hospital closes down and she gets
laid off. She may even decide to move on before the possible closure hits.
Many people have DREAMS about a great career, but take no steps to make the dreams come true so the dreams
remain a fantasy. Do you really want to do what it would take to make your dream a reality? Are you willing
to figure out what steps you need to take to make the dream come true?
Making a dream come true takes a lot more than just creating a great resume. The first step is talking to
someone else in the field. Nathan, a Rational Fieldmarshal, has been working as a theater manager and working
on a B.A. in Business. With a group of friends he has created short films and has a website for his films.
He has also entered his work in 48-hour film festivals where a new film is created and shown within 48 hours.
Now he's thinking of going to film school, but lives 1,000 miles away from the nearest university that offers
this option. His next step will be to visit various schools to see if they are a good fit. He already knows
that some of the schools where he might attend have different philosophies. He wants the freedom to express
his own visions and not have to conform too tightly to a professor's restrictions. He knows that some schools
emphasize making commercially viable films and others emphasize artistic merit. He needs to talk not only to
university people, but to successful people in the business to determine his next steps. Nathan will decide
whether or not the reality of having a film-making career fits with his dream vision.
Paula, an Idealist Champion, has always wanted to be a singer. She has entered some local talent shows,
but the number of songs she sings is limited and her exposure is low. She dreams about the great costumes
she will wear and the adulation she will receive, but isn't taking much action to make her dream come true.
Her dream is best thought of as a fantasy.
Some people say they have no dreams about what they want to be. They are best at grabbing opportunities
that are presented to them or going into a field that is familiar to them. These are the people who are
best helped by the next step in the process called WHO AM I?
