IT STARTS WITH A FEELING...
In my line of work, ambitious professionals come to me with various career struggles…
Statements like these are most common, they reflect how people feel at work:
*** I’m just not happy at work these days
*** I can’t see myself doing this job for the next 20+ years!
*** I’m not feeling fulfilled with my work
*** I can’t help but feel like I’m meant for something more/different
If that sounds like you, read on!
The main reason why you’re feeling this way if this is you is all about the specific thoughts you’re telling yourself about your career.
And, the # 1 way to start turning things around is this:
CHOOSE TO TAKE 100% RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE AND YOUR CAREER
This is something I learned from several of my mentors including the founder of The Life Coach School, Brooke Castillo and famed author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, Jack Canfield.
The moment we stop looking outside of ourselves for what may be going wrong and start looking in is when we realize that we have the power to turn any career challenge into a triumph!
When we take 100% responsibility for ourselves…
WE ARE NO LONGER A VICTIM
We start noticing the ways that we may be blocking ourselves from career progression.
And, we start asking ourselves better questions about how we might be able to start progressing towards our dream career.
By taking 100% responsibility, we realize we have control over ourselves, how to act and react and we can start to better understand how we create our results, in our lives and in our career.
This is just the first step but it’s a crucial one. It’s one giant step that can completely turn your life around.
When we take 100% responsibility:
>>> We give up complaining
>>> We let go of blaming
>>> We notice how we create our reality with the thoughts we think and the actions we take
>>> We regain control over ourselves
This is such amazing news!
It means we have authority over our lives and with some focus, skill and action taking, we can generate the results we crave in our lives.
The dream job.
The rewarding career.
The fulfillment that comes from living up to your full potential.
So worth it!
