I have met Noa more than a year ago during an open morning for coaching academy, where I used to study and after all I was an assistant of the teacher. Noa also participated in some of my ”Connect with your dream job” meetings, and even during one she deliver a short presentation.
Name: Noa Brume
Country/City: Den Haag, Nederlands
My dream is to always have enough (or more) than what I need (time, love, materialistic things will help too of course) so that I can just give and give to others as much as possible with no limitations.
My dream job is to deepen what I do now: I want to combine my profession as a counsellor / coach with my love for teaching and education. I want to run more successful workshops which will help people leaving them with food for thoughts and a big smile in their heart.
How did you achieve your goal = dream job? / How do you plan to achieve your goal=dream job?
In the past, where I have considered myself as being very successful in what I’ve done, I’ve always made sure that I become the best I can in what I do: if it’s by studying, reading, observing others in their work- I just had to become the best I could possibly be (and the emphasis is on the word “I”). This has proven to work for me because then I could deliver the best of me, was highly appreciated and got offered jobs and promotions. This is not perfectionism but rather being in a place where I’m highly comfortable with what I’m doing. That seemed to work, so I’ve got every intention to do the same with my dream job mentioned above: just thrive to be the best I can at all time.
What is your tip to others concerning the Dream Job / Life?
I have two things really:
One, is remembering that the person is “making the job” and not the other way around. So even if you start with a small job, make it something big, enjoy it to the full, come to work with a smile: it could be just a foot in the door and other jobs can come out of it, or it could be that you’ll make it so successful and huge that who knows… it’ll become your dream job!
The other one has to do with my passion and connection to Positive Thinking / Positive Mental Attitude:When people say to you that you won’t be successful, that you’re not good enough, that you “don’t have it” and that better people than you have tried and failed, don’t take it into your heart: They don’t talk about you, they talk about themselves. (These words were said by a guy called Eliav Alaluf, and believe me; he knows why he says that).
Who are you?
My name is Noa Brume. I’ve been living in The Hague since summer 2010 and enjoying every moment in this wonderful international and diverse community. I work as a counsellor / coach in my own practice which I have at home: a place which I love because it’s so peaceful, relaxed and private. I love working with my clients, seeing how they find their path to a better place for them. Before becoming a counsellor / coach I was a teacher and an educator, and taught Modern Hebrew in the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, at Oxford University and in schools in London. I have a very strong passion to Positive Thinking, Self-Awareness and Positive Mental Attitude, and I give lectures and run workshops on the subject. I’m married to a wonderful man and we have three wonderful children at home. I love people and believe in the power of people and the great things they can
achieve with willingness, a pinch of love and a smile.
