If I had to give you my best advice to help you find a fulfilling career it would be this:
“Get to know yourself …and choose the career that fits who you really are.”
But, when I say “the career that fits who you really are”, I’m not suggesting you a career that fits your current skills, because…
It’s not your skills what counts when you want to create a fulfilling career.
Instead, you need to search for something else…
Our minds are incredible problem-solving devices. From the million of things going on around us, they only pay attention to those that are relevant to us at the moment.
Have you ever bought a new car, only to see if everywhere afterwards? Or your best friend shares with you she’s pregnant and all of a sudden you notice every future mum wherever you go?
This happens due to what neuroscientists call the Continue reading
This may come out as a surprise to you, but way too many coaches and healers who are great at what they do, secretly fear they are not good enough.
“ Who am I do this?” -they wonder.
They get credential after credential, go from class to class and yet, they never feel like they are ready to do the work they do.
And that keeps them from taking the actions that would make them Continue reading
Figuring out who your ideal clients are: what their biggest challenges, dreams, needs and wants are, is one of the most difficult things you will ever do in your business.
It’s difficult, but it’s also a key factor in business success.
You need to be clear enough about who you help as soon as possible, because you won’t be able to attract clients to your practice if you don’t. Period.
- How will you know where they gather?
- How will you know what topics to write about that are of interest to them?
- How will you know where to share you content?
Without knowing who you serve, trying to connect with them is very hard because… Continue reading
In my years as an Architect, I supervised the construction of many different buildings. I built many single family homes and a few multi-story ones. Some were conventional, and my favorite ones were eco-friendly and sustainable.
But no matter how different they were from each other, they had something in common: all of them were built upon a solid foundation.
I’m sure you get why it’s important to build a house on solid ground. Common sense -and a ton of regulations- made me pay attention to the quality of the foundations underneath those buildings.
But when it comes to building a business, many of us seem to have lost our common sense, and we create the business Continue reading
In this day and age when everything goes so fast, we’ve lost the capacity for attention.
Our emails are flooded, our Facebook feeds are non-stop, and not to mention the webinars we want to attend. Who has the time -and attention- for all that?
The same is going on for your potential clients.
If you are in any way like me, you built a business to Continue reading
Understanding ourselves is a key element of choosing the perfect career or building the business that is right for you.
One of the most common tools used to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves it’s called the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.
Based on Carl Jung’s theories, this framework shows us that there are 16 different types of people, depending on how they prefer to make decisions and gather information.
Of course, each individual is unique, but these 16 groups are helpful in guiding us discover how we prefer to use our minds.
And relative to your career or business path, it can point towards where your biggest contribution may lay.
This article is inspired by a question that Julia Barnickle Continue reading
I’m so tired of the topic of purpose.
Well, not exactly about the topic in itself, but with the way it’s been discussed lately online.
I’m tired of the manipulative, guilt-based approaches that many experts out there are using with respect to the idea of “living your purpose”, don’t you?
Instead of helping us live more meaningful, inspired, and satisfying lives, expressing our purpose has almost turned into a chore:
Another task to add to our already-full-to-do-list, another reason to feel like a failure, and think that we are Continue reading
I’ve discovered an interesting fact after years of helping others find their contribution: Not everyone can relate to the idea of having a passion.
And it’s not because they aren’t interested in living with a higher sense of joy and aliveness.
It’s mostly because we use different words to describe our experiences…
…and words, at times, can be an obstacle.
That reminds me of my first Continue reading
