Most people don’t associate their work performance with their emotional patterns and personality. That’s because we’ve been taught to separate it and to only approach work in a very logical way.
In the day-to-day, this typically involves looking only at tasks to fulfill, then goal-setting and achieving. We’ve been conditioned to ignore the emotions associated with these tasks. Instead, we’re taught to rinse, lather, repeat, and keep our heads down.
In using this outdated industrial worldview it’s easy to forget that we’re human, that we each come with our own quirks, emotions, history, trauma, and subconscious beliefs. …
Just a couple of months ago I made the decision to start working with a coach for six months, by investing $10,000 in full.
At this point, I realized that to get to the next level of growing my business and myself, I had to align with someone from who I could learn.
Someone who is in a place in their mindset, self-worth, and business that I want to be and who can hold the space for me to become who I want to be.
I learned about a positive coaching experience from a friend who referred me to her coach. I knew in that instant that I would be working with this coach, as I had seen how my friend was showing up and how similar we were. …
Many of us this year have gone through career setbacks, whether our jobs been made redundant, or our job search was interrupted by the pandemic, or our business operations were significantly impacted.
Maybe you’ve even been furloughed or fired twice this year. I feel for you especially.
When the lockdown started in March, I was very close to securing multiple job offers after months of searching. After multiple rounds of interviews with two companies, where I was in the final stages, the news of the pandemic felt like I was being pulled back to square one. …
I’ve had many ideas of what I thought would make a good career for me that turned out to be completely false.
What I did choose (a career in account management) was not something I felt aligned with. After a few experiences of being in the wrong job, and seeing how it negatively impacted my health, my energy, and my relationships, I knew I had to find something that was fulfilling for me. I realized this in 2016, and it wasn’t until 2020 that I created a career that involves everything I love.
After starting my side business and offering freelance writing and marketing services, plus eight months of searching for a job, I found a fulfilling full-time role. It took some soul searching and investigative research. …
Mostly forgotten, the child within waits until we stop ‘doing’ for just a moment
Our child within wants to play, to dream, to dance
Other more ‘important’ tasks take their place
Play doesn’t make sense
Freeing the mind
The child within squeals with delight
When it sees its opportunity to come through us
When skipping, coloring, laughing, just being
The child within wants to ask endless questions
Escape the reality of day to day life for just a moment
What happens when we forget to play with our child within?
Our child finds a way to make things messy for…
The veil is thin, so grief showed up again
Catching me by surprise, grasping for what’s left of a memory
When the grief comes, I let it stay for a while
It usually comes when I’m still and present, giving it space to arrive and I see what it has to say to me
Grief can sometimes visit at an inconvenient time
It can feel like too much for me to handle, so I unconsciously numb in little ways
But I always come back to presence and I meet with grief head-on
Grief doesn’t want to hurt me, it wants to…
According to Jim Rohn, you’re the sum of the five people closest to you. Therefore, it would make the most sense to become conscious of what type of people you spend your precious time and energy with.
When you’re on a personal growth path and you start to become conscious of the different areas of your life you’d like to improve, like your mindset, and your lifestyle choices; your friendships and close relationships come into play.
If you’re on a path of awakening and growth, and the people around you aren’t on the same path, it can impact your relationship. Even if you’re not focused on improving, you’re allowed to change. …
The late Wayne Dyer said, “Every time I pick up a coin from the street, I view it as a symbol of the abundance God sends into my life and feel gratitude. ‘Thank you God for everything,’ never do I ask ‘why only a penny’?”
Once I learned this quote, it changed my entire perspective on what abundance is. I realized abundance is being as excited about finding a penny as it is for finding $20.
It’s having gratitude for the seemingly insignificant occurrences, that make way for receiving the opulent rewards.
Two years ago, I started noticing whenever I’d find a penny or any coin for that matter, on the ground. …
Grief came when I was least expecting it. Death was something I knew was inevitable but forgot along the way, as we all do.
Death would be the only thing that would wake me up out of a numb life on autopilot.
Most people live life on auto-pilot because it requires little effort, and you’re not forced to look at what’s wrong in your life.
I remember the day perfectly when grief made its first appearance. …
