Feel Like you're Wasting Away In The Wrong Job?
Ever get to work, sit down, see 400 emails that came in overnight and wonder if this will ever end?
If your seven year old self met you today... would the younger version of you be proud and think you're cool?
Most people I work with are good at what they do, but it's not what brings them alive. It doesn't make their soul sing, it actually kinda is killing it slowly. I spent a lot of time (and a few careers) feeling that way...
When I was working in advertising, I remember sitting in on a focus group of moms talking about Goldfish crackers. I had been in a dark room all day long, munching on M&Ms, listening to the nuances of toddler snack time.
I couldn't take it anymore.
So I escaped to the bathroom where I sat quietly in the ugly pink tiled stall and burst into tears. It's there where I spoke to God, or rather pleaded, "there's got to be more than this."
Looking at it from the outside there was no reason for my misery. I was doing great in brand strategy. I was recognized and even got several awards from my clients and my agency. I worked with nice people (who I still keep in touch with). But waking up to go to work each day was just getting harder and harder and I couldn't figure it out.
For the first time in my life, I didn't care about my work so I gave 80% instead over achieving with gusto at 150%. I couldn't energize or get motivated like I used to. And I was so confused because I worked so hard to get into this job, and now I didn't know what I really wanted.
It took me 10 years after my conversation with God in that tiny pink tiled bathroom to finally, with confidence, say, I'm living my dream life and have created my dream career.
It took a long time because I did a lot of trial and error. I spent many nights lost in thought. I did endless informational interviews. I networked like crazy. And I got a Masters Degree in the Science of Happiness just to figure out what it means to live the good life.
But looking back now, it didn't have to be that way. And it doesn't have to take you that long, either.
Here's the REAL REASON why we get trapped in our jobs...
Most people aren't taught how to figure out what we want. And it's a REAL SKILL.
So that's why I'm writing. If you also find yourself escaping to the bathroom to have conversations with God, you just feel a little lost in your career, or you just know it's gotta be better than this...
Let's fix this. Don't wait. Don't let it get worse. And don't spend tons of time and money and heart ache (like me) trying to figure it out alone.
You are better than this! You deserve more! There is no reason you should not be able to wake and love your life, your job and your progress.
Your dream job and life is much CLOSER to you than you think.
I've developed a system to help you get clear and feel confident about what's next...and I'd love to share it with you. But only if you're committed to making a change.
