Few life decisions are as scary as making a career change.
The good news is we can do a couple things to ease those fears. And not only that, we can use them to pave a greater future for ourselves.
I’m specially referring to 3 key questions that, if you find clarity about them way before you quit your job, you’ll avoid a lot of emotional turmoil in your career transition. Continue reading
When dealing with matters that affect our future, happiness and safety, (and making a career change will influence those three) our rational minds tend to go into overdrive.
The mind, in its attempt to make things safer for us, can easily over complicate things.
We do that by asking the wrong questions, questions that will keep us stuck in analysis paralysis. I know that’s typically true for me.
There are 3 questions in particular that need some tweaking Continue reading
Inner peace is one of my most cherished values. Maybe because I feel things too much, I’m all about doing things with the least amount of emotional pain as possible.
But when it comes to making a career change, you know as well as I do, we are up for an emotional roller coaster. So what can we do?
In my experience as a career coach, and simplifying things a bit, I’ve noticed that there are 3 steps than, when followed sequentially, ease away lots of our career change fears.
And interestingly enough, Continue reading
There is an interesting fact about elderly people.
If you ask them what knowledge they’d love to pass onto younger generations, most of them would say some version of:
“Life is short. So find something you really care about, and focus wholeheartedly on it.”
“Spend more time with the people you love, and don’t take disagreements with them too seriously.” Or…
”Love is all that matters, so find something you love doing and be with those you love”
Maybe that is the best possible definition of life purpose: To do what you love and be with those you love.
And yet, most of us want to find a purpose that is much more specific than that: Continue reading
If you’ve ever felt trapped in a soulless job, (you may be in that very same situation right now), you belong to a growing number of people who share the dream of living a meaningful life of freedom, passion and contribution.
And yet, you may still be stuck because you lack clarity about what that thing you’d love to do really is. Or you already have an idea, even if still is a bit vague, but you are paralized by doubts and concerns about the question: “If I follow my dream, will I still be able to pay my bills?”
If you are in any of these two situations, where do you start?
Many of us who already are (or dream of becoming) a heart-centered entrepreneur, arrived at a crossroad of uncertainty in our lives.
A strong dissatisfaction and frustration are typically the first signs that our professional lives aren’t working anymore. And no matter how painful this is, it means we Continue reading
Have you ever asked yourself what makes a Purpose-based business different from a conventional one?
You could think that just because you know your purpose, and are putting it at the fore front of what you do, that would be enough to guarantee your success; as if some Cosmic Force would protect you and grant you your wish of making a living doing what you love.
I’m not saying “don’t believe in Spirit” (because I personally do) and I love being guided along the way in my business path. All that I’m saying is that apart from Continue reading
Coaches are known for asking a lot of questions. I’m curious by nature, you see, so it only made sense that I ended up becoming one.
Questions are valuable, but only if you ask the right ones.
For example, from all the telesummits I’ve listened to along the years, one has really stood up among all. And the reason was that they kept asking the same powerful questions to all the participants. It was great, and finally gave me a wonderful global understanding of the topic.
So when Nina Lenton shared this “chain of questions” blog post challenge, it got me interested right away.
And you know what? If you are not able to answer these questions for your own business (or soon to be business) it means Continue reading
With respect to your life purpose, what do you think it’s worse?
…having no idea about what your life purpose might be?
…being crystal clear about what it is but being unable to make it a reality? or
…putting all of your heart, time and energy into a purposeful project, only to watch it fail?
If I have to be sincere, in my opinion the third is the worst of all.
And I know, by some of the questions I’ve received lately, that some of the readers of my blog are struggling witht that problem.
Maybe because I’ve seen it more times that I would like, maybe because in many of my previous businesses I’ve struggled with it myself, but the truth is that Continue reading
