Do you still feel stuck after everything you’ve tried to go big? Maybe the conventional ways of adjusting your life and career aren’t working. Maybe you need a big change to shake things up.
Show yourself some tough love to relight the fire under your life or career. Do a thorough clean sweep of what works for you in your life at the moment . . . and what does not.
Examine what zaps your energy and what is just distracting head garbage. Do you have daily tasks that are just draining? Do you have negative thoughts that circle through your brain when you’re working on something?
These are the things we need to look at to regain your focus, get clear, and get REAL.
When it comes to lighting a fire under your career it’s all about making a habit of daily, incremental steps over the long run that lead not merely to a recharged career but to one that’s on fire.
The parts of your life that don’t align with your goals or make you feel bad or think negative thoughts are the places you have to start first. Remember that the way you feel will dictate your success. If you are run down, upset, and disappointed, then you won’t be able to reach the next level.
Now is the tough part. What do you need to do to make the parts of your life that drag you down into something more positive? Is there something you can contract out? Maybe seek education in that area? Coaching? Support? There are always solutions to improve the areas that have you frustrated.
And the inner work: What caused the negative thoughts that are spinning in your head? What has you saying that you can’t go big? Or that you can’t be happy and healthy? Or that you can’t have a successful career? Or whatever it is that you keep telling yourself.
The negative chatter is a major barrier to moving up! So let’s change the message you are telling yourself every day.
Start by giving yourself an empowering thought that contradicts the negative and can head you in the right direction. And if you can’t come up with something yourself, just start with this: I am growing into the person I want to be. I am making progress every day toward a happier, healthier, more amazing version of myself.
Tell yourself this every day. You are worth it!
