You need to say yes to yourself and here is how…
You’re always following everyone’s idea of you.
You’ve been told you can’t do what your heart desires to do so you’ve settled.
You’re in a decent job, making decent money, career on the rise, but inside someone else has the grip on your soul.
Never enough time, money, joy….and yet so many people seem to be in the same boat.
Maybe this is just how life is supposed to be.
I should stop wanting more, who do I think I am?
(Wait, is that really YOUR voice?)
I too, questioned the inner surge of wanting more.
Each day I speak to folks who work. Yes, people who put forth effort in the world, mostly for a company (sometimes for themselves) and they are not happy and fulfilled. Meaning escapes them.
Are we supposed to find meaning in our work?
Maybe that is just for nomads, coaches, authors, yogis?
Meaning is the exact goal we all look for in life and YES!
It can be found in our work. When meaning is found in work we feel a high vibrational energy, feels like LOVE.
The feelings like LOVE cause chemicals in our body to soothe and make us feel great. Why, then wouldn’t we want CAREER LOVE?
We work at least 8 hours a day and if we are not feeling love,
Each day we have one choice and most of us screw it up.
Many of us blow it, right out of bed.
Many of us don’t understand just how crucial this one thing is.
So, we do the same thing every day, think of all the obstacles and barriers we have in life.
Do you know that this is everything?
This. Is. Everything.
One thing you really need to do ALL YEAR…..everyday.
Manage how you feel.
You do make choices every single day.
When you wake up, do you immediately go to the worry, the pain, the problems?
Do you chose to focus on these?
I want you to overcome these tragic problems I hear all the time.
The most difficult part of changing for the better is that we have a loyalty to our negative thinking.
Yes, you do! It is sometimes labeled as , “this is just who I am, I’m not good at interviews,” or, “I don’t think they will hire me, look at my resume”…
or other limiting self stories…“I’m just a nervous person, I don’t do well in big companies,”“Bosses are always so difficult,”“I’ve never done that before, they won’t hire me.”
We hang on to these beliefs to save ourselves the pain of not getting what we truly want, so we don’t ever go for it.
I have been upbeat all my life….but the inner talk has been challenging over the years….until I did this.
For years the first thought I had in the morning, was “Oh no, not again!” Many mornings I woke up early to go on a run. The early morning run was my feel good start to the day. I yearned to have this feeling last as long as I could.
But….that runner’s’ high and that self-talk of “way to go Mo” barely lasted to my commute to the office!
Then I added CD’s, motivational books and everything I could to FEEL BETTER on my drive in.
OK, Big reveal…
Something became obvious after a client learned a painful life lesson. It has a big impact on me as a coach.
You see…my heart breaks every day….that’s right, every day.
And this one time it really hurt. You see, my coaching is an investment. Of course, you want to make changes in your career and life, it’s an investment in time and money.
I conduct webinars, talk about what I did to lift my career. And post all the time, tips, techniques and stories of others who are landing their dream jobs and crushing it!
I lifted my career and that of others’ many times in my life and know how to combine the best in executive techniques with spiritual and personal development.
You Are in Control..it’s Your Life
But, they don’t tell you that, do they? Don’t forget…your career, your life….it’s a new year. Maybe you have been convinced that you aren’t worth the next promotion? Maybe you keep working for the same boss?
Perhaps you are confused that being the perfect student and hard worker isn’t working anymore and you feel stifled by making sure everything is just right before you take a step. Perhaps you’ve studied the Law of Attraction and wonder why it isn’t working for you?
Is there more month than pay? Did your Holidays feel extra tight?
Take Control…it’s Your LIFE!
Let’s talk about how…HERE.
Take a few minutes to answer these inner questions.
Happy New You! New You all Year Long.
Happy New YOU!
Each year, same old resolutions come and go and they are written about why they fail. Perhaps now you settle into a simple promise that you know you can keep.
“I will be more sincere this year.” And as soon as you say it your gremlin mind begins to take over! “You know you can’t be that way at work!” “You know you can’t be that way with Sally!” (Friend who needs your shoulder to cry on and you never get anything from her.)
This year must be different. You must get that promotion, get that raise, or go for that new job that you are so worth and ready for!
Oh, what a year of growth! Lots of Bests!
I want to share my best reads and listens with you as a year end wrap up to Mo-tivational Mondays!
Has this year been your best? I hope it has been! Think about where can you notch it up!
Ever since I was a young girl, reading and learning have been my refuge. I have read a lot this year! My Book Club knows it. Lives get changed by reading books. My all time favorite, Napoleon Hill’s “Think & Grow Rich” is an all time success manual. Not only my life, Oprah’s, Tony Robbins, my son, many clients….. If you haven’t read this book. Get it now,
Your Success Depends on your Light Shining Brightly.
Your Light Shines Brightest When…
Success is determined by you. Your ability to BE your best self and to work with your alignment is essential, otherwise, you are just working a JOB. We aren’t happy when we just work at a job. When our light shines bright we are working in our career….it matters to us and to others.
Years ago I was hitting myself up against a brick wall…choruses of “why don’t you just get another job”….”people like you don’t last” all sorts of messages, directly and indirectly sent my way as I struggled. My light was not shining, my light was OUT. I was struggling to show up for work.
