Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?
I was “fired” (ok, downsized, re-organization, call it what you will, I lost my job) 6 times in my wonderfully successful career as a healthcare executive. I finished on a high note, but trust me there were times when it felt like it had crumbled for good!
One time I lost my job was within days of our house getting robbed! All our jewelry, every darn piece and $1000 cash that we never have around the house, but we just came back from a vacation and there it was hidden in a drawer. Hidden! And they got it! Burglar alarm and all- we sat at a movie as the calls from the alarm station came in.
What’s the Best time of your life?
I want to share mine because so many have enjoyed it as much as I have.
Your best time in your life, whether that be as a child,
a young adult or last week,
this time tells us things about our soul.
These times are when we are connected to the Energetic Universe that is the source of all happiness and joy.
We must create more time in this miracle making space.
When I coach people to find this space, to spend more time in this space,
How to Find Your Way (Use Your GPS) in Your Career
Your Inner GPS is Essential- I call it Your Soul.
I finally learned how to “Bring My Soul to Work”.
Years ago I was reading a Wayne Dyer book and felt so attached to the words and message. I felt lifted and happy to know how to see my soul and feel great in the spiritual, energetic Universe.
I went off to work and each moment I felt deflated inside- where was this spiritual message?
How can I keep this feeling inside while I work?
Well, I found out and I share it in my Free Training this week.
Careers, money, marriage and families all go together! Your work is one of the most impactful pieces of the fabric of who you are and all those around you feel your energy and excitement (or lack thereof) of your work).
A few weeks ago I met a father and podcaster, Andy Hill, who lives in Detroit (I lived there as a kid), we had a great chat for his podcast Marriage, Kids and Family. While talking with him and sharing my top techniques, I was reminded of the work I do with careers and how it affects the entire family, and money, not just careers! This past Holiday season when a Kick Ass client told me it was the easiest,
Your Career Matters to Every Part of Your Life. So, Create a Destination Worthy of You.
She was shot down for a promotion.
“That’s ok,” she told herself….”I didn’t want to work that hard or play those ridiculous office politics, anyway!”
Just under the surface, she was crushed.
Deep down, under her rationalizing brain, her mind began to spin.
Thoughts and feelings of all the times she was ignored, overlooked,
even mocked for being her.
All those feelings came streaming out.
Not to worry, she knew exactly how to suppress them.
Wine with friends, they will understand and so, a night out bitching together,
Do this and claim your destiny!
This week a wonderful client of mine reminded me of an exercise I gave her last year.
She was embarking on a great big journey.
She was expanding her idea of herself and…
Her work life and just how big she could be.
She began to see the miracles pop up in the path.
She sat next to a man who worked at one desired company.
Many more “synchronicities” occurred that she took not of in delight.
She began to feel it was all possible- more than possible.
She began to feel the fabric of the magical Universe unfolding in front of her very eyes!
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,
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.
