Your parents’ advice was wrong — is living by their “rules” holding you back?
Based on our Facebook poll, aside from those who stated they didn’t receive any career-related advice growing up, the most frequently heard advice that respondents reported receiving from their parents was, “you should become a: (fill in the blank), despite the fact that you have no interest in it.”
You need to understand how your family is still affecting your day-to-day life!!
Are your parents holding back your performance, income level, your power?
We all love our parents. While their recommendations come from a place of love (sometimes) and asking their point of view may be helpful,
Are you avoiding essential conversations?
According to a recent Braverly study, “70% of employees are avoiding difficult conversations…” Also, a 2017 survey by Quantum Workplace and Fierce Conversations “found that 53 percent of employees are handling toxic situations by ignoring them.” This results in a variety of issues —employees playing small, missed opportunities, and lost revenue, to name a few.
Negotiating is another commonly avoided career-related discussion. Only 1 in 3 women negotiated for a higher salary when accepting a new job. The reality is that this can cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars throughout their careers!
Do you know which difficult conversations you need to have NOW?
Playing small was never Breanna’s way.
But, somehow she found herself not happy, on the struggle bus and life was not what she wanted. Brea wanted to be happy inside and claim her life for herself.
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
She didn’t want to scream at her kids and husband. She wanted more clients in her business and ones who are fun to work with.
As Brea found her inner awesome, began to get used to feeling great and found her inner GPS, she moved in the direction of her dreams. Not only did her business begin to grow, she felt happier about it and no longer saw it as competing with her family.
YOUR Thoughts Are Not Who You Are…
Every day you think thoughts, and science tells us over 70% of these thoughts are the same ones day in and day out. These repetitive thoughts create a belief system that controls our decisions.
Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is the science of success.
When we think and feel in repetitive ways it becomes our “reality.” Eventually it feels like our thoughts are who we are.
We are wiring our brain every minute with the wiring and “firing” of neurons, especially when emotions are high. This “programming” makes it feel permanent and convinces us that we are how we think and the world is how we feel.
