Who's driving your career?

Published 2 months ago • 2 min read

If you’re not driving your career, someone else is.

Maybe you’re progressing in a career path you no longer enjoy… and it only gets harder to leave the more money you make.

Maybe you’re the best team player who everyone raves about… but you’re left feeling taken advantage of on the regular.

Maybe you’ve been coasting lately. Work is a drag but you’ll ignore it for now…. maybe it’ll get better.

These situations may be fine for a little while.

But at some point you realize…

This car(eer) isn’t taking me where I want to go.

And if it’s not fueling my life, it’s holding me back from my potential.

Turns out as low as 22% of professionals are satisfied with their job in 2024. American happiness with their personal lives is at a 10-year low as well. I have to imagine they’re heavily related.

Don’t let yourself stay part of these statistics.

If you don’t like the direction the car is going, grab the wheel and turn it around.

If you aren’t sure where to go, lay off the gas.

If you just keep driving, you’ll run out of fuel far from where you want to be.

Good news though — you can ask for help.

Pull over to the side, find someone who’s been this way before.

Get some direction on where to go next.

Most people don’t stay in the same job for 40 years anymore. Many have made pivots or adjustments when they decide to start prioritizing themselves over what everyone else wants for them. They begin to define success on their terms.

There are endless options for what you can do (thank you internet). With clarity, focused effort, and the right support, you can reinvent yourself at any point. Use these second act careers for inspiration.

Growth isn’t linear. In fact, leaning into exploration and following your intuitive nudges leads to the most fulfilling, purpose-filled lives. It totally has for me.

This is why I love working with my coaching clients who are excited about better understanding themselves, getting clear on what they want, and mapping out a plan to get there together.

I help them refuel along the way and stay on course.

As a result, the drive to what’s next is a much more enjoyable ride.

I'll be traveling until August, so I had a lot of packing to do. I had every reason NOT to do the masterclass this week. But I decided to go for it.To stop overthinkingTo stop doubting myselfTo take the messy actionTo show myself what's possibleTo let go and let God fill in the gapsI had no idea how many people would sign up when I...

My dream is to build a life I don’t need to escape from. One where I love Tuesdays as much as Saturdays. And I’m not willing to wait til I retire at 60 to do it. The hardest part about this? The standard work schedule is Monday through Friday. If you share a similar dream and (1) you need to work to make money, (2) your work doesn’t energize you, and (3) you don’t have autonomy over your schedule, it’s gonna be pretty difficult to make it happen. Weekdays are 70% of the week — so you'll...

Most people view their next career or life move as a step-change from the previous one. This thinking is flawed. It leaves no room for reinvention, locks you into a fixed path, and ignores that life is a canvas to be painted on. Your life is a masterpiece, not paint-by-numbers 🎨 I always believed you can do anything you set your mind to — in theory. But I didn’t fully believe it until I discovered Dr. Benjamin Hardy’s work. He’s a renowned organizational psychologist and author. A few months...
