What are you willing to put up with to succeed?

Are you willing to give a piece of your soul everyday, just one more day, just one more project and then you will finally feel that you have succeeded?  When you look at all that you have achieved for your employer, but you still feel unappreciated and you look around at others who receive recognition without hardly trying?  You sit there and ask yourself, why is it that what I seek doesn’t feel fulfilling where I am at?  This is the moment you realize you have reached a closed door.  You know you need to do something about it to get back your power.

You know that you deserve better, you see what others have gotten for the same work and yet your just rewards are still not coming?  It might be a fair pay, it might be the right kind of recognition, and it might be the feeling that you can stand up for yourself and tell others how you should be treated.

You first need to get a clear understanding of what you deserve , what you want for yourself, and how to find your backbone.  Then you can plan what that looks like for you.  You will start to have the feelings of happiness when you free your soul for what is yours.  It is yours for the taking, when you decide to take a chance on yourself.

It is better to try something else and fail than to not try at all, or worse be stuck in what seems like your own personal hell.

You teach people how to treat you by what you allow, that is to be told what is good for you, instead of deciding for yourself.  You know what is right for you and your career success.  You have all the answers inside of you.  This is the realization of your power to decide for yourself.  Stop being what others think you should be.  Make your own choices that make you happy in life.  In this life we have only one life to live, it is time to start living it.  There are no rewards for enduring bad situations that eat away at your inner peace and your soul.  Finally, you must reinforce what you have decided and don’t let others change what you have decided for yourself by giving up.

Knowing you are on the right path is driven by the tiny voice inside you that tells you that you are either happy or not happy.

What is in your bucket list?

Have you ever jumped out of a plane?  I didn’t know if I was ever really going to do it then I started telling people I was going to do it and before I knew it I was doing it!

Was I scared? You better believe it!  My first thought when I got in the jump gear and on the plane was how was I going to get the nerve up to jumping out a perfectly good plane.  Well it became easier when I was strapped to someone else who was trained for this very thing.  The fears were calmed for sure.  This is no different than taking a leap of faith in making a completely different career move or walking away from a 6 figure job!

Yes, you can follow someone else’s lead and you will thank yourself for freeing your spirit once it is done, believe me!  I actually look forward to jumping out of that plane again, because it wasn’t as bad as my fears had worked me up for it.

What else are you holding yourself back from?  Are you being held back because of your own fears or your partner’s fears?  You will never know how good you will be at something if you don’t try it.  I know, what if the risk out weighs the rewards!  Honestly, this is something you need to sort out now before it is too late and all you have to live with is your regret for not doing it instead.  It could be the most successful thing you have done in your career and life time, but if you don’t plan it or work with someone who has done the very same thing, you are not only limiting your success but your growth and development to be the best version of yourself by not doing it.

Let me ask you this, what is the worst that could happen if you take that leap of faith and just do it?  Then what is the worst that could happen if don’t take that leap of faith and just do it?  You fail twice as bad, so why not figure out what it would actually take to get your ultimate goal in motion with a map or plan?

Failure is a result of trying, not trying is a result of lack of confidence in yourself.  Lack of confidence in yourself means you don’t believe you can do it.  STOP this way of thinking now!  This is a form of limiting belief system that your subconscious mind is feeding you!  If you don’t have the support you need or coach to push you, or the “neigh sayer” in your ear, then that is the first think you need to get figured out.  As a Mid-career Mastery Coach, I can be the biggest pain in the butt you want me to be, if it means to push you through your steps to your dreams.  I can help you line it out and work with you on your time lines, but first we need to get you thinking about the solutions and just getting it done.  Reach out, I am here for you!

Look around you, who is in your circle of influence?

If you are trying to have a positive mindset and work towards your goals, then you better have a look around you.  Who do you hold company with?  You should be holding company with people above you in success so that you can be around their positive energy and being.  If all you do is hang out with buddies from school or work, you may be limiting yourself to mediocrity.  If you want to be like the business woman or man making 6 to 8 figures, then you need to start watching twhat they are doing.

Ask yourself, who is doing what you want to do and doing it well?  Who is your role model?  Look at what they are doing and figure out their strategy.  You will need to layout your plan for the next 90 days and be consistent with your steps each day.

Things that successful and influencial people are doing, that you should emulate:

  • Mind feed – Reading the business section of the paper to find out what successful companies are doing and what is being written about their success.  This should be at least 30 mintues per day.
  • Spend time strategic thinking – thinking about how to grow your business or career horizontally and vertically.  How much do you want to make each month, who are you going to do it for, and how many clients do you need to have to make that much?
  • Invest in yourself and business relationships – Take on a career coach to get your map and goals down in writing and start working on the 3 – 4 steps for each goal.  I start with 6 goals for the next 12 months.
  • Maximize your process and procedures for consistency.  Are you going to have people working for you?  If so, how much time you going to spend training them and them training others?
  • What does your time management look like in your business or career?  Are you using tools to organize your productivity for the day, a to-do list or planner with priorites?  Do you have timelines for the tasks?
  • Lead conversation – who are you talking to about your business and or to advance your career?  If your boss doesn’t know what you want to do, you are basically waiting on them to lead you.  This is not what a good leader does, you need to lead your boss down the road you want to go and look for opportunities to get there.
  • Virtual assistance – If you get so busy in your day, who is going to handle client follow-up questions, scheduling the next jobs, or making the sales calls?  You may think about hiring virtual assistance so that you better use your time for growing the business.
  • Define your profit indicators and know your numbers.  What is your advertising doing for you, how are you performing in your career against your leader’s expectations?  Do you have regular meetings and or review of the business or job indicators?

Just like you want to be developed, your people want the same.  What is your development plan in the next 12 months for personal growth and what are your employees aspirations for development?  As a business owner, you need to be investing in your skillset and tools to make your time management more productive and lead you to more business.  As a career professional, you need to think about each year in your career as if moving up the ladder or accomplishing the goals you have set within the organization.

Then on a personal note, how do you measure up to other leaders on leadership knowledge.  Are you someone your employees would aspire to be or that your co-workers would say good things about?  Have you accomplished enough in the last 10 – 15 years or are you light on accomplishments.  In the next 15 – 20 years, you will want to look back at your accomplishments with no regrets.  Did you get done what you wanted to accomplish or are you thinking you could have done a lot more?  I can tell that from personal experience as a career professional, you need to have ambitious goals for personal satisfaction.  If you don’t have this, you may find yourself wishing  you had just done more.

Energy is key to your success and failure

When energy vampires suck the life from you at work, you leave feeling exhausted and it is very difficult to refill your energy levels to carry on with life outside of work.  What do you find that works to quickly raise your energy? I am not talking about physical energy to go out and play soccer, run a marathon, or exercise, I am talking about the spiritual kind.  All matter is made up of energy, so if you have more energy leaving the body than going in, you will experience this drain in spiritual energy like in the vampire scenario.  All things are made up of energy.  Energy is constantly moving in and out of us.  If our energy becomes depleted, we have to find new ways of replenishing it to feel at our best.

Have you tried to increase your spiritual energy and what have you tried?

Here are some ways that I researched to help you do that:

  • Hang around positive people to increase your vibration
  • Take a walk in nature and feel the sunshine on your face, notice the birds and all the pleasant sounds of nature
  • Listen to uplifting music or meditation, like spa music
  • Get enough sleep for holistic healing
  • Perform acts of kindness for others
  • Establish of pattern of gratitude for all the great things in your life – love, joy, peace, your health, etc.

Be mindful of your state of energy at all times.  Have you ever noticed when you wake up in a great mood versus a bad mood and how simply talking to yourself to get out of that bad mood is all it takes?  Once you are on to your subconscious mind you can call it out for the bad moods and instantly change your mindset from negative to positive.

If this hasn’t worked for you, another technique I like to use is writing in your journal about your feelings or mood.  If you write about the feelings, you will quickly be able to identify your negative mindset and change your perspective.  How does this really work?

Write about your experience or bad feelings that seem to hanging over your head.  Why do you feel this way, what are the sources of the feelings?  Do you feel angry? Why do feel angry?  Are the feelings coming from a place of fear?  Is there some major change that your mindset is reacting to?  Get to the bottom of it and then you can state the simple facts of this experience.  When you state the facts and remove the feelings around the experience, you can begin to release the negative energy that is weighing you down.  You can make room for new positive feelings and space to attract more positive to you.

Did you ever hear that saying “you have a black cloud over your head”, this negative energy or mindset can attract more of the same to you and before you know it, your always paying attention to the negativity around you.  Like energy attracts like.  So if you are putting out negative feelings, are in a bad mood, or plain cranky, then the universe is going to respond by bringing you more of the same.  I suggest you become very aware of this phenomena to master the Law of Attraction and manifesting success for yourself.

I would love to help you learn more about using the Law of Attraction to change your work situation and start focusing on your mindset and how this can help you create a more desirable outcome.  How to be more positive and surround yourself with more like energy from the universe.

What’s your greatest achievement?

When you felt the most on top of the world, think about how great that felt.  You were flying high with success after success, promotion after promotion, pay increases and bonuses to make it all worth while.  Isn’t it funny how this doesn’t last forever?  Do you sit there reminisce about what was and all that you still want to achieve?  Then you realize that you don’t have a plan to make this happen.

Does this sound like you?

Little did you know; these heights weren’t sustainable. In the blink of an eye, your success became your hell. You worked your way up to senior management, but along with the promotion, the job came with a huge pile of responsibility and stress. And every single thing your team and you did was scrutinized. You felt like you were on a sinking boat.

Then you couldn’t turn to your managers for support. They were constantly demanding more, more, more! You couldn’t understand their hostility.You had rocked for 3 years,  brought the company to the highest level of success it could achieve – and yet were being treated like garbage.

Your workload was saddled with too many projects and not enough resources. You worked in a fog of constant in-fighting other people’s drama.

Your own team was constantly belittled and thrown under the bus. Everyone else’s bad judgement was held over your head. We were at the complete mercy of corporate – whatever they decided to obsess about that day had to be our number one focus. (It didn’t help that they changed that focus almost daily.)

And then, unsurprisingly, your health took a dive. Within a few months, you started to show symptoms of stress-related illness. After a year, your blood pressure skyrocketed to stroke levels! Maybe you were even hospitalized for 3 days. This was terrifying but gave you time to think about a new topic – yourself.

If this is you and the pain of your success has become your hell, then it’s time to make a change, you will thank yourself for taking this step, believe me, I have been there.  Once you get past the anger and the pain to celebrate your past success, realize who you really are and what you really want, you too will be in a better place.  The place that you will create and map out with help guidance and a little work.  What can it hurt, you have nothing to lose, but you must face your fears of failure.  It won’t be easy taking this big step, but this is why you will have a support group and guide to move past this closed door you face.

What was your biggest work challenge?

Did you think you were going to make it through it?  Are you facing it now.  Well, the worst part of this kind of challenge is that it takes so much out of you, that you have nothing left to give.  You find yourself behind the ball in every way, and you tend to get blind sided by things you were not expecting.  You are not as organized as you usually are.  People are so demanding and critical of you and this makes you put your guard up and become defensive.

You know you are smart and have proved it so many times over and over again, so why is this happening to you?  You have come to this path and closed door?  What will you do now that you are facing it?  It is so much work to climb this massive feat.  The workload is very heavy and gets heavier as the day goes on and you travel up that mountain.  You keep asking yourself, is this really worth all the blood, sweat and tears you give day in and day out?  Are the people I work with the kind that give a damn about their job, this place, and about doing the right thing?  You begin to question your very existence and why you made the choices that got you here.  What is my purpose and who am I here to serve? Is there a life lesson here for me to learn?  Why am I being punished this way?

Does any of this sound familiar to you?

If you are here, then let me ask you this question…are you ready to get out of this misery yet?  Have you thought about what it would look like without all this pain?  There is so much relief that you will see after letting go of the heavy baggage.  All you have to do is decide to map out your plan and get on with the life you really want.

This rock and mountain you have been climbing is not going to defeat you unless you let it.  You really can make the best of the next 20 years you have left by committing to yourself in figuring this very question out…do you love yourself enough to get this done now, or are you going to continue to self punish and endure the pain and misery?

Lots of people are taking the advice of career coaches and mentors these days, because they want a plan that will get them closer to that successful path for themselves.  Choose someone that has walked in your shoes and knows what it takes to create that next chapter and is committed to guiding you on your path by giving you the tools to free your soul and connect with your purpose and map to your future.
