To the mid career high-performing professional…
You don’t have to tolerate your career to be successful
To the successful, forward thinking, well educated, high achieving, unhappy and frustrated professional….
It’s time to stop thinking that your career must be dull and painful, because “that’s just how work is.”
Are you ready to RE-invent your Career?
You have invested so much money in your education.
You’ve been promoted during your tenure, and you earn a good salary. Your employer is a “prestigious” one.
But you are also exhausted and frustrated with your job.
Despite working hard all these years, you still don’t know how you can make a change and maintain your job status and salary. You spend so many hours a week at your job without getting the appreciation, recognition and monetary rewards from your bosses.
And the worst of this is that you have tried so many times to change something, but nothing seemed to work.
Does this sound like you?
- Maybe you’ve changed jobs several times. Or perhaps you’ve just kept your head down and stayed at the same job for years or even decades to try to move up.
- You keep thinking that the next promotion or the next raise will make you less miserable.
- You have worked with several career coaches and adapted your CV a dozen times.
- You have taken several personality tests and listened to many Youtube motivational videos.
- You have tried so many times to work resist the frustration and lack of motivation on Monday mornings.
- You have spoken to so many people about your career situation and your friend and family might even be tired of hearing you complain about it all the time.
- You are constantly buying new books about finding your “purpose” and cannot seem to figure it out.
You have tried it all.
Let me ask: how that’s working for you?
Does any of that seem to be helping your situation?
The truth is: you are dissatisfied with your Career.
And the worst part of it is that you realize you are becoming more and more cynical. You think that work must be dull and tedious and a pain.
You also downplay the effects of your dissatisfaction, the frustration you bring home, the resentment you have toward your boss, and the lack of motivation you encounter every start of the week. Have you thought about the consequences you’ll face if you let this continue? Sure, you’ll still be miserable at your job but what about the stress on your relationships? Where will you be in a year if you let this continue?
Your sleep gets worse and you keep thinking about this situation over and over, without finding a solution. When you go out with your friends you seem to have only one topic for conversations, and you are even fed up hearing yourself talking about how miserable you are at work.
The danger with persisting in suppressing your pain is REAL.
To summarize it, by the time you figure out your job sucks, it has sucked for a very long time.
Deep down you know this is not you.
What would you say if all of the above simply became your PAST story?
What if you learned how to get yourself into a satisfactory, fulfilling, gratifying career, without all the fears and hesitations?
Imagine you’ve had a work week where your boss has seen you, shown you his recognition, and perhaps you even got a nice bonus and the workload is done for the week.
Even the projects for next month are very likely to be completed in time, as you get such amazing support from the other team members and departments. There’s little work stress and you always leave work feeling really happy and successful.
You feel that your work has left an impact and that you contributed to the company’s success by showing the best aspects of who you are. Finally, you feel so aligned with your company’s values and ethics, you’re totally enjoying the time at work and do not feel you’re missing out on any of the things you want to do with your free time. You cannot wait until it’s Monday again.
When at home, you are able to detach yourself from the thoughts around your job and can enjoy your family time without any stress. You find enough time for your hobbies and sports and emotionally you feel rejuvenated, positive and engaged. You simply love your career.
This is all possible for you.
You are way more powerful than you think.
The one thing I ask from you is that you stop thinking that your career is “just work”.
Drop your cynicism and start opening up to possibilities.
Here is what is real.
Your career, independently from whether you want to stay employed or are dreaming of starting your own business, is a growth opportunity you get in this life to express who you are and what you are good at. It is going to take up more than 75% of your lifetime to go to work and earn your living.
The situation you find yourself currently in is the reflection of your conditioning, of your beliefs and of your fears.
What if you started doing work which allowed you to express who you are, and where you could use your strengths and talents?
What if you could openly express your needs and aspirations without having to fear that nobody wants to hear them?
What if you could earn good money by enjoying what you do on a daily basis?
What if you could transition into a new career and not lose your financial stability or seniority?
Re-Inventing your Career, is about subconsciously reframing what you know, think, and feel about yourself so that your professional identity can evolve into who you want to be.
You are probably thinking “is this really possible for me?”
If it was for them, why should it not for you?
