Have you ever found yourself unsure of what you really want in life and business? Have you spent years working hard to get to where you are as a professional woman but realise that you don’t have the career you want or the recognition you desire as a leader in your field?
The truth is, you don’t have to constantly settle for something else. It’s okay to change your mind, shift the goal posts and move towards what will bring you the greater success and happiness you desire.
It takes clarity, courage and a whole lot of self-awareness. But if you commit to some deep thinking and self-discovery, you can achieve the life and career of your dreams at any age or any stage of your career. And yes, it’s possible!
I have a top female executive client who I have coached and mentored over the past 18 months. She has been tirelessly working on winning a coveted new title and position within her organization heading a new division in Europe. But suddenly, COVID hit.
The global pandemic has put her successful career plans on hold. She found herself in a state of uncertainty, constantly thinking of what will be her next move.
During one of our 1-2-1 personal brand coaching and mentoring sessions, I remember her confiding in me, “I’m not sure what I want to do. I’ve worked so hard to get this, but now I’m unsure if it’s now really what I want.”
Truth be told, what happened to my coaching client is something that many professional women, female entrepreneurs and small business owners can relate to.
Even with the absence of a pandemic, I’m sure that most of us find ourselves questioning what exactly we want to achieve in our life and business at some point.
As busy people, we get too consumed with working so hard to grow our careers or businesses that we often lose sight of what we really want and why we want it—realising that we are not entirely happy and fulfilled once we achieve our ultimate goal.
With COVID taking the world by surprise, my client, just like everyone else, lost her momentum, had her goals disrupted, and now that the playing field has drastically changed, she was left with one big question: “What do I want to do now?”
She opened up to me about feeling very lost and confused on what will be her next successful business move.
In Times Of Confusion, How Do You Obtain Clarity On What You Want To Pursue?
You Can Start By Asking Yourself These Crucial Questions:
- What is your intuition telling you about where you are headed?
- How do you feel about where you are right now?
- Why are you feeling this way?
- What’s holding you back from going all in?
- What motivates you and makes you happy?
- What is your ultimate vision of success? And why?
- What do you need to do to get there?
As a personal brand coach and image consultant for many years, I have learned it helps to stop, slow down and reflect in times of doubt and uncertainty.
Think about things that matter to you and what you can control and forget about what doesn’t matter to you and what you can’t control.
Try to recalibrate your purpose and vision, and you’ll start to figure out the right steps and strategies you need to take to get there.
To help you figure out your next big move, I am giving you one of my most successful coaching tools guaranteed to help you get unstuck and back on the right path to success.
My Design Your Ideal Life and Career Worksheet is here to help you refocus your inspiration to live the life you want!
Inside, you will find the questions you will need to answer in order to gain clarity on what you truly want and what steps to take to make it a reality!
Surround Yourself With The Right People
Hang out with people who inspire the greatness within you to shine! Stay away from people whose energy and attitude hold you back from achieving your ambitions and striving for your best life.
Be Selective With Who You Spend Your Time With
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with!
These people will shape your life and perspective significantly. Not only that, the way they think and act will also have an influence on you even if you don’t notice it.
This is why it’s important that you surround yourself with other female leaders and empowering women (and men) who will constantly inspire and support you.
When I was just starting out as a personal branding coach, what really helped me was surrounding myself with successful entrepreneurs, industry leaders and risk takers! .
My exposure to other high performance professionals enabled me to lead from a very receptive space and greatly contributed to my success.
I also adapted their winning mindset and powerful success habits that drastically changed my life! By constantly surrounding myself with the right people, gave me the belief that I can achieve anything as long as I set my mind to it! And you can too!
Don’t wait for the time when you’re ready— that moment might never come!
I used to drastically put things off if I felt I was heading into uncharted territory until I realized that it only led to many missed opportunities and a whole lot of wasted time!
On the other hand, pursuing something I’m passionate despite my fears has brought so much personal growth and business opportunities in my life.
The uncertainty can be really overwhelming at first, but do it anyway. After all, the best lessons in life and business are always learned from ‘doing’ not procrastinating!
Send that email, schedule a meeting, up skill if you have to and most of all be proactive! These small yet significant habits will open new doors that can change your life.
It won’t be long until you will be confident enough to step up, share your goals and visions for success, build a following that will inspire others with your journey.
Get A Coach Or Mentor!
Having a coach that will guide you all the way can do wonders. It gives you another perspective about your current situation, and it pushes you to take risks.
We often get so comfortable with our limiting beliefs that it becomes our reality. It’s hard to imagine the greater possibilities waiting for you when you’re so used to always settling for something that’s safe and practical.
As someone who provides personal branding strategies, leadership development and business coaching programs, I have seen how much my clients and their businesses can progress after each session.
Just having someone you trust to hold you accountable, keep you in touch with what matters to you and offer more choices and smart strategies will shift your lens and keep you moving towards attaining your goals.
When you’re feeling lost, you can always rely on your coach to lead the way towards regaining your confidence and going back to the path towards achieving your dreams.
What Are You Waiting For? It’s Time To Regain Your Power And Live Out The Life And Career Of Your Dreams!
Time to drop all limiting beliefs and unleash the most confident and unstoppable version of yourself!
