WHAT IF "IT" WAS POSSIBLE
This is what I love most when I’m coaching a client:
We’ll be talking through Zoom, and I’ll be asking them some questions and suddenly, I can just see the lightbulbs going off in their mind…
It’s almost like a veil gets lifted and they start to see their future with new, fresh eyes.
This often happens in an instant, with me asking them 1 or 2 questions (sometimes more) that just hadn’t crossed their minds and suddenly has the potential of blowing their minds
I see this happen over and over again and it’s such a privilege to witness.
It usually goes something like this:
>>> They come to me because they want something different for their career.
>>> Sometimes they know exactly what that is.
>>> Most of the time, they have ideas of what they want but they feel stuck, unsure, confused, overwhelmed or don’t know where to even start!
>>> Through the coaching process, we unravel and remove all of that confusion.
>>> They get clear on what they want. That makes them feel very good… for a moment!
>>> Then, their brain starts to think of all the ways that their career dream is likely not possible at all.
>>> Then the typical human brain tends to go into one or several of these all at once:
Right back to where we started, before the clarity happened!
Gotta love the human brain. All it’s trying to do is what it was designed to do best: keep us safe.
In the process though, it’s also keeping us stuck.
Which brings us back to what I love to do most.
I get to be the person who fights for my clients’ dreams.
Who helps them see exactly what’s going on with their brain in those moments.
AND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT IS
Career possibility happens when you know what you want for your career, you see your brain acting out and you train yourself to lean into the possibility.
+++ What if your dream career was possible, then what?
+++ What if you could design the exact business you want?
+++ What if all you had to do was allow for the fear, doubt, uncertainty to just be there, and move forward with your dreams anyway?
I love this so much!
These are the questions that have the power to change your life.
But first you have to realize what’s going on when you feel stuck.
When possibility is not front and centre in your mind.
That awareness is crucial and it’s the first step.
WHAT WOULD YOU CREATE IN YOUR CAREER IF ANYTHING WAS POSSIBLE FOR YOU?
*** Would you pursue a new profession, even if you’d have to change your field or your industry?
*** Would you start that business you’ve been dreaming of or dabbling in?
*** Would you go after that promotion and let them know you want it and are the best person for the job and why?
*** Would you ask for a raise?
*** Would you go all in with whatever career desire you have?
What could be if it was all possible?
Consider this your invitation to dream, to ask yourself those questions and to answer them fearlessly.
And when your brain starts to freak out (and it most likely will at some point), have a little chat with it:
"I got you brain. I see you, I hear you and I know you're just trying to keep me safe. But I'm just going to lean into this anyway.
I'm choosing to believe it's possible for me".
