We’ve seen it all lately!
Or have we?
I’ve been there and I’m a #MeToo participant.
Why are we seeing another abuse of power?
Why are we seeing another opportunity for people to step forward and say, “NO MORE!”
I was raised Catholic and when the Catholic priest sexual abuse was uncovered….so long it took to finally be exposed, I was mortified, but also knew how common it was for that sort of power abuse.
I’ve seen bosses ignore problems, belittle people, yell in such a way as if it was out of a horror movie.
So surprised and shocked each time.
The idea of a better life seems impossible to many.
So when someone says, “I have the answers,” it seems so far away.
Life being joyous and free seems to be fantasy when we are trapped with what we know to be “true”.
Ideas of life being difficult…Life being a struggle….Life being a lot of work permeate many of our ideas of what life IS.
Migraines. Therapists. Gossip. Blaming. Anger. Victimhood. All seem so normal and they simmer like a pot ready to boil over.
Bitching and moaning about life seem normal and accepted.
Jobs that underpay, bosses that bully (more on that next week) and co-workers who undermine us.
Toxic work environments seem like something that is normal and expected….just look at the news!
Heal Your Career, Heal Your Life
This is what I know.
When you find your awesome self, you cure your career and your life.
One recent client, unemployed for several months, 3 kids….she had skills, desire, but her vibration was all victim. She was deeply feeling unworthy and broken. She NEEDED a job!
One client was laid off from her previous job and took a job that was lower level, lower pay and the boss wasn’t able to see her skills. She needed to move on.
She started working with me to find a new job worthy of her experience and education.
My approach is to look inside.
This Thanksgiving – and every day! – do something new. Don’t just give thanks at Thanksgiving dinner, go deeper and do this instead and see a huge difference in your life all year round.
She is all right now. She started out desperate to feel better.
She has a Masters Degree in Computer Science.
She works in a big company in Europe serving business clients.
She used to feel invisible. USED TO!
She wants to be a writer, a blogger. She wants to be seen for who she is.
We met in my Kick Ass Coaching call 12 weeks ago.
She lives in Europe and was ready to throw in the towel.
Miserable at work. Miserable with what she chose to study and learn.
But… she is talented.
Thoughts are Momentum.
You create your life. YOU CREATE EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE.
Yup! There, I said it.
Everything in your physical world is an out-picturing of the world inside you….because it all starts with energy.
Your consciousness is showing. Everywhere!
The grand mirror of the physical world is a reflection of the energy world in which we live.
Your thoughts and feelings are energy.
How else would you feel them? This energy interacts with your body…feelings!
Your physical body responds and then chemicals in your body change and now you have a real deep feeling. Once it is in your cells….your body remembers the feeling.
Each week I see the effort of so many to work hard, push through and literally fight their way through. FIGHT. We were taught to tough it out, work hard…FIGHT for it all.
There are winners and losers…BE A WINNER.
FIGHT. Work. Life. FIGHT. Family Obligations. FIGHT. Been there.
Each week I see people breakthrough this habit and move with grace and ease.
The new way to win is with your soul pouring out with YOU- true power.
The new way to success is to BRING YOUR SOUL TO WORK.
LIFE. FAMILY. NOW.
Each week I hear and see stories of finding FLOW.
Does your day job constantly remind you that it is not the right fit? Maybe your boss doesn’t recognize you or your contributions, or your hours are so long you arrive home bleary eyed.
Are your passions getting sidelined, because you have nothing left. Do you long to do something more meaningful with your life?
We often tend to be haunted by our own self-doubt and criticism. “Why can’t I just do my passion work?” You ask yourself over and over. My advice is always the same, change your thinking – change your life.
Focus on your success at work, focus on your day job. If you pursue your passion now,
How to Tell the Truth—Speaking Up with Purpose
As we flew home, belted in the private corporate jet and feeling all snazzy, still elated from a major meeting, we were chatting strategy and how this was going to be great for the company, yet I was depleted and confused.
I leaned in and asked our C.E.O (an arrogant and very monied man),
“Why did you lie to them?”
He responded as he would to his young daughter, condescending and surprised to be asked (challenged) by little ol’ me.
“They will never remember anyway. We have to keep them interested.”
My head was spinning as I sat back, wondering who was wrong,
