Challenge and change shouldn’t phase you.
You’ve done both.
You’ve learned a lot and here you are, continuing your work, life and business.
People say change is difficult yet throughout history, humans have worked
through it. Okay your life may not be in the same shape as it was before, but it’s okay to evolve, shift and move with the times.
I was chatting to someone and this very topic came up. She was asking my thoughts on the great resignation and the problem being faced right now. I replied “the pandemic has pushed the problems to the surface. The gaps, the problems, the seemingly perfect, that has been in organisations and with people for a long time, that weren’t seen before. We have felt the impact of significant waves right across the world. Not one country nor organisation. The world.”
The perfect storm.
Which is why I know that you can do change and challenge, and why this is the perfect opportunity to shape futures. Yours, your family’s, your business, your teams, and for future generations.
From what works looks like, to how you harness the strengths of your teams, and how you lead your life.
The way you do this – to keep going in a sustainable way – is to understand what impact YOU want to make.
When I revisited why I was doing my work now it took me a little while to consciously share what I believed it. Here’s the final drawing of how I work (if you’ve read my guide to Shaping your future, you will have seen it there).
Liberate means to get your thoughts out of your head. The grey matter. This includes your vision, dream, goals, the things that are getting in your way.
Connect your head with your heart. Connecting the dots and feeling the energy that fuels through your body and soul when you do what you love.
Sustain your journey of transformation. Whilst the world is changing, so are you. Balance doesn’t exist but energy does. This is all about you sustaining your life and business.
When you know what your dream is, it drives every conversation, every decision and every step you take to shape your future. Simple? Of course not! But my goodness, how much fun is it to play with the possibilities.
Oh, and if you don’t believe me about dreams, did you know that Jim Carrey was fifteen when he dropped out of school to work as a janitor in a factory to support his family?
But there’s more. If you’ve worked with me, you know that your childhood is important. Jim Carrey began making faces before a mirror and discovered a talent for doing impressions at the age of 8. He dreamed of becoming a comedian.
He went on to make his professional debut as a stand-up comedian at the age 15 and a year later he was able to make a living as a comedian. At the age of 19, he moved to Hollywood, and the rest, as they say, is history.
This week’s question is, what’s your dream? What do you want to do in your life, that you haven’t yet?
Come on, don’t keep it a secret. I won’t tell anyone, but I will encourage you to shape it.
