The question might seem commonplace or trite.
“Of course, I’m in. I’m here, aren’t I?”
But, we ask if you’re all in because commitment is key to finally landing in that better career, that better life.
Because if you aren’t committed to finding your right career, you might continue this cycle…
Another day, another dollar they say, but that dollar was hard won. That dollar is costing you your optimism, your happiness, your spirit, your health, your relationships…
The list goes on.
You try to numb out your feelings and tell yourself if you just stick in there, maybe things will change and then you remember that you tried that and things didn’t change.
It’s not as though things are awful. You’re able to get through the day. You’re responsible and people at work rely on you to get on with things and get them done.
The thing is, you’ve just been getting on with things in your life, too. And though you’re not doing that much complaining to others, inside there is constant inner feeling of complaint.
It shouldn’t have to be like this.
I want more than this.
This isn’t what I hoped for.
I don’t know what to do to make things better because the things I’ve tried aren’t working.
Shouldn’t I be able to figure this out on my own.
All these thoughts about your stressful day, tumbling about in your head at this late hour.
You might even call yourself selfish for wanting something MORE than you have now.
It’s not selfish.
When you’re ALL IN for creating a life that’s just right for you everything changes.
You’re fast asleep in bed, dreaming of the great day you had, of new life adventures you’re wanting to go on. You’ve seen that dreams can come true and now have the chance to make new ones.
You had a beautiful day. You connected with people that you cared about, did things that matter to you and to other people using the skills you innately have and the ones that you’re developing through hard work and perseverance.
It was the kind of day that you never regret and when you’re old and look back on it, you know you’ll feel glad that you gave yourself this chance, that you believed in yourself enough to choose yourself and your future.
You didn’t pack in your old career without a thought, you didn’t leave the people depending on you in the lurch. You made a thoughtful and planned transition and it took you to a new workspace but it also helped you to become more YOU than you’ve ever been.
You’re sleeping soundly now, rather than searching one last job website, and living more fully and with more personal integrity than you’ve ever been.
You’re being YOU and that brings you happiness.
When you fully commit to making the change, you give yourself the chance of a different way of life.
You give yourself the chance to make a change, to go from where you are right now to a future that involves work that inspires and delights.
What would that feel like for you?
How would it feel in your heart?
How would that affect your self-confidence?
