Start doing this, it’s paramount to your career success.
If you are reading my articles and emails, you most probably are an ambitious person. You have achieved some big things, some good success and are constantly looking for the next challenge. You also are not willing to settle for mediocrity and dullness, at least not for a long time.
If this is you, I want to invite you to read on.
These last few months have been really tough for me. Under many aspects. Mentally, physically, emotionally.
Today’s message from me comes from the learning I got out of these tough months.
I know there are things you want to do because you are reading this, yet you might be thinking “What if I make a mistake, What if I fail, What if I’m wrong”, and you know what?
You’re going to fail, not once, not twice, but many times.
You’re going to make mistakes, not one, not two, but a dozen or more.
You’re going to be wrong and that is how we learn.
That is how we grow.
That is how you build an invaluable experience that prepares you for the time you are right, for the time you are on the right path, for the time that your REAL success shows up.
Give yourself permission: It is ok to make mistakes and it’s okay to be wrong.
I totally hear and see you.
I was exactly where you are now.
For a looong time. I also felt like I was failing.
But the truth is I did not allow myself to fail and be wrong. I was my greatest enemy at the time. I felt as if my whole existence was useless without the professional role I had had for 17 years. The truth is that I had outgrown my role, my working environment, my responsibilities.
I wanted to grow further, and was growing, but I was not aware of it at the time.
It’s painful to realize you have spent 5-10-15+ years doing something that you don’t want to do anymore, or that you don’t want to stay at the same job anymore, because of the tasks, or that you once liked your boss and now you cannot stand him anymore.
What would happen if I told you that if you take the steps it takes, if you open yourself to your personal alignment and to identify what you truly want, if you do the work you need to do on YOU, that you will absolutely get “there”?
This is the truth.
You will get there.
You will get to live a fulfilled career, to be truly aligned to your values and your talents, if you allow yourself to find out what it is that truly fits who you really are.
You will get to earn good money by doing what does not feel like work and fills up your days.
You will get to do work that is impactful and challenging and however you wish it to be.
You will get there…if you allow yourself first to “fail” and to look at what is going on right now and feel the disappointment and the pain of not knowing how to solve your situation when you are thinking of what you want to be different in 2020.
Give yourself permission to get there.
