What this is NOT about
From time to time I stumble on people who ask me whether I could find them another job. Basically doing the same thing as they have been doing so far, but just with a different employer.
Because they are fed up of the environment, they can?t stand their boss, they do not get promoted, they do not like what they do, but perhaps they would like it if they did it somewhere else. You name it.
If your days have become heavy and you suffer from bore out, if you are trapped into a feeling that you cannot describe but whispers to you ?get me out of here, because this is not what I am supposed to do?, then changing your employer, sorry to say it that openly, is not going to change you anything.
Not one thing.
Can you guess why?
I am sure you can.
Because there would be no change.
No substantial change.
Therefore the result would be you in exactly the same situation as now, just a couple of years later.
The transformational work happens when you realize that your perspective on something has shifted.
When you see things differently, and you feel differently towards something.
So going through a career transformation with me has nothing to do with:
- Finding the ONE career that you are going to stay in for the rest of your working life
- Finding the perfect job
- Or being happy every second of your days during their working lives
The work I do with my clients has to do with wanting more, for themselves, for their careers.
And you define for yourself during the process, what wanting more means to you.
You will have to go through some reflections.
Because the way we were brought up or we went to school, has not taught us to ask for more.
The best way to do that is not on our own, but with support.
Ideally the support of somebody who has already gone through this exploration process.
Independently of whether you will be doing this with me or not, get yourself support.
As finding fulfillment is not something we are used to thinking of.
And most part of the time we do not expect this from our work.
But I am here to tell you that it is possible, work is much more than earning our money and have regular hours.
Have a splendid week!
