For many of us, aligning who we are with what we do in the world isn't a choice, it's the only option left.
Are you asking what's next for you? Are you stuck slap bang in between a job you loathe and an idea you want to create? Have you been asking more of yourself? Frustrated because you have no idea how on earth you make the transition to bringing your gifts, talents, and skills out to play in the world?
Here at LM, I work with individuals are looking are in the midst of a change in their professional life. Some people know they have to make a shift and are looking for support to clarify what's next, others have lots of ideas and are seeking some guidance and advice on take those ideas and to make them a reality, and some are just at the beginning of making the changes, they know they have more to offer, more to give and are searching more meaning and happiness from what they do in the world.
What's next for you?
Maybe you have a project you want to put into action? Perhaps a creative talent and skill you want to take further than a hobby? A fundraising idea? Write a book, do stand-up comedy, rescue kittens from Russia? It could be a career shift, a new piece of learning, go self-employed. Perhaps you are in the corporate world and want to switch to not-for-profit.
What's stopped you until now?
Many people tell me that fear and self-doubt are holding them back, or some say that they are stuck and don't know what to do first, they are filled with confusion and lack clarity. If that's you please check out the free confidence course over here.
Others say they just want to do work that is meaningful and matters. They know they are destined for something else, they know they have more to offer or skills and talents that can be put to better use. The Core Values Workbook (it's a free resource) might help if you can relate to this.
Why I want to help you ...
Over the past 20 years helping individuals navigate their career and supporting them to align who they are with what they do, I've learned a few things, and I think they are vital to our time here:
1#: We are happier in positions and cultures - even if it's our own business - where our personal values align fully with those of the organisations we work for.
2#: We cannot separate out who we are with what we do in the world. The line between our professional and personal lives is long gone. As human beings, we want to show up as ourselves and engage with work that is meaning rich and rewarding.
3#: Anything is possible. Anything. But we have to put in the work. We may not be able to do that exact thing, but it is more than possible to utilise our strengths, skills, and talents in the right way.
4#: 'Work' that aligns with who we are gives us joy, creates meaning in our life and enhances our health and well-being.
