It’s Never Too Late To Change Direction

*Collaborative post.

In life, it can be hard to know what it is that you really want in life. You can spend years working towards something that you thought you wanted, but then when you get there it’s not quite what you thought it would be. Even if that is the case, that doesn’t mean it’s too late, there’s no point in life where there’s no turning back when it comes to your career, and you should never let thoughts like that hold you back! 

Often people do what’s expected of them, or what they feel they need to do, so it’s not uncommon to be working in a job that doesn’t align with your dreams. You have to be creative with your ambitions if you want to know what it is that fits you.

How to know

Is your job starting to feel stale? Do you often fantasize about other careers wishing that you worked towards them instead? Well, if this is the case, it might be time to start looking into turning that around! That’s not to say you should just drop everything in an instant, finances need to be taken care of, but what’s stopping you from working on it? 

Age doesn’t matter

So you feel like it’s too late to turn back now, as you’re no longer in your twenties, maybe not in your thirties either; that doesn’t matter. There’s a popular Chinese proverb that says “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”. Think about it, how much happier you would be twenty years from now if you were to change direction now; there’s no time like the present!

What you can do

There’s plenty you can do to change direction, no matter what your dream job is! For some, if not all, it’s going to be a daunting path. The idea of going back to college or university with people a lot younger than yourself might feel silly, but it’s completely normal! You’re there to make the best of your life, and there’s nothing more fulfilling than that.

Even if you need to spend years studying for your dream profession, it’s worth the effort if you can commit to it! For example, you could apply for a doctor of education program much later in life than the other students. It might not sound like everyone’s dream, but graduates of this program are prepared for academic leadership positions, and for some that might sound like something worth turning their life around for!

Don’t limit yourself to the expectations of other people, if there’s something that you’ve always wanted to do, you should start now.

Try new things

If you find yourself not enjoying your job, but also not knowing what it is that you want to do, not to worry! This just means you haven’t found what it is that you’re looking for yet, and it’s still never too late in life to find that! Now’s the time to be looking and experiencing new things, try to picture yourself in different professions! 

This doesn’t only apply for just jobs, hobbies and activities are a great way to find out more about yourself. Everyone needs a hobby, something that makes you feel good about yourself, and a creative outlet you can pour your time into! It’s never too late to pick up a new hobby either, you just have to remember to set aside some time for it here and there.

Why you should

If you dread going to work every day, but you think that it’s best if you carry on going to the same job in the same field, you might be wrong. Even if your current job brings in enough money to make you feel successful, you still need fulfillment and happiness to go with that. Money can’t buy happiness, but having a life that you enjoy is worth a lot more than all the money in the world. You don’t want to be living with the regret in the back of your mind, wishing that you’d just changed course at some point, when you can change course right now!

It’s not an easy decision to make, as you have to put in a lot of work to change your direction in life, but when you think about why you’re doing it, it can make it a lot easier. You only get

Find Your Niche

Firstly, you want to find your niche. What content or angle do you want to come from? Perhaps you’re a good dancer and therefore want to post just dance and dance-related content. Or you might like to do home interior shots of your property and post them on your social media channels. Whatever your talent is or wherever your passions lie, focus on these when it comes to your social media. It’s certainly important to find that sweet spot when it comes to building a career because if you’re not in love with what you’re posting, then it might not work as effectively as you’d hope.

It’s important that you post content that your followers are going to enjoy so getting it right earlier on in regards to what you like posting, is important.

Create Quality Content

Creating quality content is next up on the list and with this, you want to make sure that everything you post is going to be relevant to the theme of your social media. It needs to showcase what you promote or cover on your feeds, and that quality should remain as it is going forward. Posting poor quality content is only going to put people off your feeds and that results in a lack of engagement or following.

Seek inspiration from other content creators on where you might be going wrong.

Be Consistent

Consistency is key when it comes to social media. It’s important to remember that hundreds of thousands, if not millions of social media content goes out every minute of every day. That means you need to be active in your consistency of posting content. Whether you like to post daily or weekly or even multiple times a day is up to you but consistency is key. The more consistent you are, the better it’s going to be for growing your audience.

Get An Agent

And finally, if you’re looking for additional support in your career, then there’s always the option of getting an agent. Agencies like unrulyagency.com can be helpful in boosting your success and growth depending on what you have already in regards to stats. There are lots of agencies out there but remember, they will all likely take a cut for the work that you attain.

Making a career on social media isn’t easy but it’s still possible. Use these tips above to help make a career for yourself on any of the social media platforms that you want to grow on. For some, it can happen quickly, whilst others take a bit more time to bloom.

What will be needed to perform a hybrid manicure?

To properly care for your nails and perform a careful hybrid manicure, you need to stock up on some necessary cosmetics and accessories. You can find most of them at, for example, https://roxiecosmetics.co.uk/ or at your local drugstore.

You will need:

• UV lamp, which is the basis for making a hybrid manicure,
• Wooden sticks and nippers – they will be used to remove and cut the cuticles,
• A nail file and a polishing pad, thanks to which we will give the nails the desired shape and matte their plate,
• Cleaner, i.e. a liquid used to clean and degrease the nail plate,
• Dust-free swabs, which are helpful in cleaning the plate,
• Base for hybrid varnishes – it is applied before applying the varnish layer,
• Hybrid varnish – a colored varnish which, when applied to the nail plate, hardens under the lamp,
• Top – a cosmetic that is applied at the end of styling to give the painted nails a glow or matt effect.

Hybrid manicure – how to prepare?

At the very beginning, you need to pay attention to your cuticles around the nail. To make it easier to remove them, it is worth pushing them away with a wooden stick and then cutting them out with pliers. In the next step, use a file to give your nails the desired shape, e.g. almond or square. Then, polish the nail plate with a polishing block. Now all you have to do is rinse them with a cotton pad soaked in a cleaner and the nails are ready for painting.

How to paint nails with hybrid varnishes?

The first stage of painting is to apply a colorless base on the nail plate. This should be done carefully so as not to splash the cuticles. It is also important to secure the so-called free edge of the nail, thanks to which the varnish will last longer on the nails. When all nails are covered with the base, we need to harden them under a UV lamp for approx. 45 seconds.

The next step is to paint the nails with hybrid varnish. Here again, we have to show great precision and accuracy. After painting, harden the nails under the lamp for approx. 60 seconds and apply a second layer, which we harden again. The last step is to apply the top coat on the nails – this layer is also hardened under a UV lamp.
