Forgiveness and Success
What the devil does forgiveness have to do with success?
Would it surprise you to hear it has everything to do with your success?
Every day in my Kick Ass Career Course I see women who have suffered what I call “Job Trauma”.
This is a very real emotional, mental and spiritual assault. Our work and career is our contribution to the world. It is our physical world energy which yields the fruits of our labor…our pay.
Work is a personal contribution to an organization that serves people. No matter what work you do, you make someone’s life better. We are connected by this fabric of society.
I am so excited to feature a client of mine and an overall BadAss woman for this week’s Motivational Monday. Rhonda Ulrich, Esq. is a true inspiration to men and women, alike. Rhonda has “written” several chapters in her career and is re-inventing herself again as she grabs her alignment, “brings her soul to work” and creates the life and career worthy of her big heart! Rhonda and I have known each other for about one year and I have seen her come into such strength and alignment. We met in person at my (clients only) retreat in Miami in May…it was transformational for all the women in attendance.
Rhonda began writing inspirational blogs on her LinkedIn profile and I asked if I could feature this latest version.
Who you think you are may be hurting you….let’s explore this tricky topic. It’s more than self-image.
Like it or not, our lives are a collection of our thought habits.
This past Saturday I had a great session with my Mastermind ladies. These are women who have worked with me for a while and are frickin’ awesome! Heck….they inspire me with all they accomplish and their aligned, soul-based living. Many of them have recently achieved more in their careers and lives than they ever imagined possible for themselves.
They are living their dream lives because of one major change. They began to see themselves in new ways. There are some necessary steps to take to get aligned.
How to Fail Well and Succeed.
Warning: This idea may conflict with your idea of reality!
We are taught that failure is to be avoided at all costs.
Good grades are celebrated and failing grades are punished!
Failing is bad!
Failing is wrong and painful and a sin.
Now that you are an adult, I can share something with you.
Failing WELL is the key to SUCCESS!
Yes, many successful people will tell you this.
Failures are legendary….Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times in his baseball career, but he isn’t even in the top 100 of strike outs. The top of the list is full of Hall of Fame players and men who are the games all-time greats!
How to Manage When it Never Ends: Embrace Life Lessons
What? Never Ends?
I know….life is a constant flurry of things…events…feelings….thoughts…..can’t we just get off and coast?
No. We. Can’t.
Life has a way of constantly flowing.
A river that never stops, always flowing.
A horse race around the track, over and over.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 weeks into a new job, I thought my entire existence was going to crumble. Cancer gives one the jag in the throat, the punch in the gut…I did wonder if I would die or how bad it would all be. When I told my boss I was so afraid of being criticized,
This week, I decided to video my blog on work myths…
Take me on the go– less than 10 minutes to learn the 4 Work Myths that are Holding You Back.
These are “stories” you may have heard around the dinner table as a kid and not even realize they are in you. Perhaps you are caught up in seeing these issues as reality… could it be you are buying into other people’s stories and they have taken over your reality about work?
My clients know about breaking through these seemingly brick wall stories…it is possible.
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.
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,
“Job” myths…..finally busted!
“You must work hard, be unhappy (isn’t everyone)…..in a job, miserable?”
“You must work more the more you get paid…..”
“You must be a political, arrogant, self- seeking person to get ahead….”
“You must be vicious to others to be successful…..”
“You must leave the corporate world to be happy.”
What a bunch of junk!!
There are so many myths about work and jobs that it has created real conflict in many of us!
I also see many folks pursuing their “work for myself” dream and it just doesn’t get going because of multiple issues.
Here are the JOB MYTHS BUSTED:
Work can be fun and enjoyable and aligned with your inner self!
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.
