I am talking about shine this month.
Your soul shining. Your soul shining is…..well……Is. Everything!
Your freedom, joy and happiness are essentially your SOUL!
When you shine your soul brightly everyone can see it.
YOU– you feel it!
Happier. Lighter. More Joy. Better decisions.
“If only my life was better. If only my job was different.”
The secret lies inside YOU.
My clients show me this everyday.
You know the secret?
Your soul is the secret.
YOU are the secret ingredient.
The secret to your freedom, joy and happiness is……
She said, “Yes, I will go for it!” She said YES to shining brighter!
This brilliant, award-winning software engineer was working with me to stand in her power, to leave a toxic workplace, to change her career and life.
What was going on with her became obvious as we worked together.
Stranded in a place that was too small for her, she was stifled and it hurt every day.
She loved her team, she loved the work.
But, her boss and the culture had robbed her soul.
Playing too small hurts in every way.
- Your opinion isn’t valued, because you aren’t in the right seat.
People tell me all the time that they don’t feel good enough inside to do what they want to do. This comes from a number of reasons including confidence, inner critics, anxiety and more. When you love yourself, amazing things happen. You get the things you want (including jobs, relationships, money).
Read my post on vision boards which can help with this.
The only way to love yourself is to get to know yourself! If you love yourself, you will begin to do things that fulfill your happiness, your confidence, and even your willingness. It will help you succeed.
We spend a lot of our lives discovering ourselves. We are people…we change.
Yikes….I was told as a young girl that talking about money is rude. Money is also the root of all evil, right? I really need to stay away from money. It is bad….and people with it are bad!! Those were the messages I grew up with, how about you? Just like many of us, I was raised to be honest, modest and a hard worker.
I was raised that envy, money and greed go together. So, work hard for little money is how that works out…heck no! As a young catholic girl money was the devil and to be avoided at all costs! But, we need money. We need money to live, to give and to create comfort.
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
“I walked out on my job and then THIS Happened”
I see it all the time….walking out on the job because the emotions become unmanageable.
All the time…..
You have done it all.
They don’t see you.
Others are recognized.
You work long hours for what?
The pattern is familiar and your have no way out.
You can’t ask for help, because they would just blame you for not doing enough.
Judith’s story is very inspiring>>>>>her journey is like so many women I speak to every week.
That’s why my executive background and coaching talents come together to bring a new focus…what does it take to have difficult and “impossible” conversations?
Planting the Right Seeds for Your Career Success
Each spring seeds are planted all around the globe.
We reap what we plant.
And, we must tend to our plantings.
I hear this all the time…….
“Why am I NOT getting the promotion?”
“Why do I always get a bully boss?”
“I work so many hours and it never seems to matter.”
Amazingly, we miss the idea of planting the RIGHT seeds, when it comes to our careers and life.
Seeds are marked, planted and managed….right soil, irrigation, and eliminating pests.
Being bombed out as a little girl, refugee to Germany and the life of being unwanted was all she knew. Teenage years battling an eating disorder hurt her deeply, she barely survived that.
Some days being angry and hateful was the only defense.
Until she found her strength in the gym.
Years ago, being strong meant lifting the most weight. Milijana was a true super-hero in the gym. Medals, awards and being recognized as the strongest women in Croatia were proud moments. She thought it would take away the years of trauma. Trauma was weighing on her in many ways, eating disorder, suicidal thoughts and deep rage.
She found her safety in the gym,
I found my dream job, and so can you!
I was really focused on a job title, and what title I should go after. However, once I had clarity about the type of work I wanted to do in great detail, the job came to me, I didn’t have to go for the job.
I had to make a list of all the things I wanted in my new career. What were the qualities of the job, how did I feel working in my new career, what was my team like, how did they feel about me, how did I feel about them.
EVERYTHING I put on that piece of paper I have in my life today.
My career was full of them.
Not speaking up because I felt being too smart and quick would offend my boss, procrastinating to do something because it involved someone I was threatened by, or just not giving it my all, because the blow back and hidden criticisms hurt too much.
This all created patterns in me that eventually led to energy blocks.
Energy Blocks show up in our career and life as stuck, stifled and fear based living.
Your career is likely showing sign of these same energy blocks and eventually, breast cancer.
Fear of rejection, fear of making mistakes, not owning the room and not feeling worthy–
