I had finally understood that standing at the kitchen counter doing dishes while scheming and daydreaming about what I wanted to change in my life wasn’t going to bring it into being. I had to take in a deep breath, understand what it was that I wanted, and then declare it out loud. I had become resentful of my career. It was getting in the way of the work I truly loved to do in my off hours. I was fearful of becoming bitter. My Good Girl upbringing was holding me hostage in a worklife that didn’t fit anymore.
I shut down that Good Girl in my head that said, “the right thing would be stay right where you are, people are counting on you” and “you should be more grateful for the career your have, these kind of jobs don’t come along every day” and “who are you to think that you could be successful doing anything different“. Those thoughts had to be replaced by thoughts like, “you have so much to offer” and “you can weave in the “good stuff” that you love doing, plan an exit, and still be great at what at what you do here.”
In my off hours I began planning my exit strategy. I was so excited to be able to continue to perform well in my job because the thoughts of resentment disappeared. I maximized my off hours to plan, connect, and take action leading up to my break-free date.
You feel like you’re stuck. You’re fed up and want to break free and do whatever it is you’re supposed to be doing in life? You know what “it” is that you want, but you just don’t know how to go after it. You have some ideas but it sure would be nice to connect with someone who “gets you” and who is ready to actually show you how to you adopt a mindset that leads to Success.
You’re considering leaving your job for something more worthwhile but your Good Girl voice keeps you from moving forward. You don’t have a safe zone at work that allows you to talk about this. You need to continue to perform at your best at work while you’re considering options. You know you want more, deserve more, and can contribute more.
You have a desire to be seen for all that you are. You want to be top-of-mind for projects, promotions, and opportunities. You want others to want to work with you. You want to develop influence. You want to increase your leadership skills and truly begin to define success on your own terms but just don’t know where to start. You’re questioning should you stay or should you go.
You’re ready to do the work that will lead to a career that is fulfilling, rewarding, and allows you to play to your strengths. You want a career that inspires you to be the best leader you can be.
