In a previous blog, I wrote about the 9 steps to upgrade and re-invent your business, career and self. In short, you shuffle the position, industry and vehicle you want. You may have to downgrade one temporarily to upgrade another, but in the end, if you're determined, you'll get everything you want and then some!
Leap and the net will appear. Then, I get asked what triggers motivated me to take these daring leaps of faith. I live by a philosphy of: leap and the net will appear. Some think it unwise... Most people I knew thought it reckless. But I am I living my life for "most people" or am I living it for me?
Looking back <insert big sigh>, my biggest motivators were pain driven ones. By sharing these internal motivators and eerrrhh screaching hand break moments of fear and doubt, let's turn all our "should's" to resounding yes's!
|Upgrades||Motivators||Eerrrhh, hand break moment...|
||Am I really going to throw away 9 years of blood, sweat, tears, education, training, and specialization to be happy? ... Hell Yes!|
||Am I really going to throw away a lucrative business that I'm hyper talented at to do good in the world? ... Hell Yes!|
||Am I really going to leave meaningful, hands-on, and much needed field missions to upgrade my personal quality of life? ... Hell Yes!|
||Am I really going to give up a prestigious, coveted and secure position after all the effort it took to get it to follow my heart? ... Hell Yes!|
||Am I really going to give up a high profile, high status, high income business for more holistic balance in my life? ... Hell Yes!|
||Am I really going to give up a continuous and abundant supply of consulting clients for more fulfillment and empowerment? ... Hell Yes!|
||Am I really going to give up a niche that I excel at when all my coaches and mentors advised me to the contrary? ... Hell Yes!|
||Am I really going to open myself up to "who do you think you are?" and make a name in an industry where I'm disadvantaged by my gender, skin color, age, introversion, personality and upbringing? ... Hell Yes!|
