Career Choices and Fulfilment

career choice pgotoDo you ever wonder, “Would different career choices have given me more fulfillment?”

Do you ever wonder if maybe the grass is greener on the other side?

As my daughter is starting to consider a career in medicine, it’s caused me to reflect back on my own career choices.

You see, I almost did study medicine. In fact, I nominated it as the second choice on my University application, even though Engineering, the course I did end up taking, was far easier to get into.

What would life have been like if I’d taken that path?

Meeting other people’s expectations…

other people's expectationsIf you’ve been feeling stressed & overwhelmed, ask yourself, “Whose Expectations Am I Trying To Meet?”

Sit down and make a list of all the things you’re trying to do, then figure out which of those are there to please YOU, which are there to make other people happy and which are only there because you feel ‘it’s the right thing to do’?

The thing with trying to do what you feel is EXPECTED of you is that often when you dig a little deeper – you find it’s not really expected of you at all! D’OH!

So why take a chance? Do what is most important TO YOU – and trust yourself.

Here’s a quick video I made for you about this. Enjoy!!

How about you? Do you try to meet other people’s expectations – and is it slowly driving you nuts?

5 Reasons For Eliminating Worry And Self Doubt

eliminating worry and self doubtDo you ever find yourself caught up in worry and self-doubt ?

We all have moments of self-doubt, times where we feel like we’ve bitten off more than we can chew, where we fear we won’t be able to finish what we started, that we’ll end up disappointed, embarrassed or humiliated. We worry about looking incompetent and wish we’d never put our hand up to being with.

Whilst this is pretty normal for most people, it happens a lot more frequently for some than others.

How can you tell?

Just have a look at how successful and happy someone is. It usually correlates directly to the amount of time and energy they spend on doubt and worry.

Are you learning from frustration or just banging your head against the wall..?

Frustrated? Time to learn the lesson...Do you ever get the feeling you’re banging your head against a wall?

Figuratively, I mean.

This is how I’ve been feeling lately. You see, I was stuck on a particular marketing strategy for my book and the whole project ground to a standstill for months on end while I continued to push, pull, shove, maneuver and stubbornly persevere.

Frustration mounted, I stopped enjoying the process and I couldn’t even seem to find time to be creative anymore. I suddenly realized I’d stopped doing all the things I loved and brought me joy. I felt like I was stuck in quicksand. Do you ever have one of those dreams where you’re running but just not getting anywhere?

Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m all for perseverance. Perseverance has brought me to where I am in life. Perseverance has allowed me to survive the hard times and rise from them triumphantly.

Reprogram Your Mind – And Break Free From That Voice Inside Your Head

DYI BrainwashingA while back we talked about that voice inside your head and how it can keep you all tied up.

That voice which continuously runs like a broken record is actually programming you and as a consequence it’s running your life! The voice is conditioning you to see life a certain way and has you adopting certain beliefs. It makes you see the world through a filter that matches the self-image it’s painting for you at the same time.

Once your program has been set in place and you press ‘Play’, the show keeps running on autopilot – unless you intervene. If you don’t, your life will just continue to serve up things which match that self image – good or bad.

You see, our conditioning affects our habits – how we act on a daily basis without conscious thought. And how we act directly affects what happens in our lives.

DIVE IN.. and discover your self-worth

Over the past couple of years, the single most important thing I’ve learned is this:

No matter how hard you work or how many goals you set, you only ever get what you feel you are worthy of. Not a penny more.

Sadly, many people simply don’t feel worthy of the things they desire. Not in the deepest, darkest inner workings of their soul, they don’t.

After decades of studying personal development and neuroscience, of practicing visualization, goal setting and affirmations, I came to a single conclusion about the things I was still working hard for. There was only one thing standing in the way: what I felt worthy of having, achieving, being and doing.

I realized that like most people, when things came too easily, I simply didn’t feel like I deserved them. Surely I’d have to work a little harder for them first?

The thing about our sense of self-worth is that we are masters at fooling ourselves about it.
