Live What You Love, in 2021

This is it!  2021 is the year that you will live what you love in your career and life.But wait you may say...How is that possible?

Because right now, at the end of this year, you may be feeling; overwhelmed, lost, frustrated, and stuck, which leads to being disconnected from yourself and what you love in your life and career. You also know something needs to change, but you don’t know where to start.

Your heart and soul may be calling you to:

  • Take better care of yourself
  • Do more of what you love
  • Have more confidence in yourself
  • Change and/or improve your relationships
  • Leave your job and do something that makes your heart sing

Yet - you just can’t seem to break out of groundhog day of knowing you want to live more of what you love but you just can’t seem to get to where you want to be in your career and life and you are over it and you are ready for 2021 to be the year that you live what you love in your life and career.

You may have all the pieces but don’t know how to put them together or the first steps to take to move you closer to living your dreams and you may have tried - self-help, therapy, affirmations, research, research, research...

Ahhhh yes, I hear you and I know that sucks, and I know it can be different.  

Through my business Careers with Wings, over the last 13 years I have been helping 100’s of people just like you go from overwhelmed, frustrated, stuck and lost to living what they love in their career and life and everyone starts at the first step of a 4 step process - Love or Passion. While it may seem simple - it is actually profound. Love gives you:

  • Confidence
  • Belief in Yourself
  • Clarity
  • Direction
  • Focus
  • A Strong Foundation
  • Joy
  • Energy
  • Enthusiasm
  • Excitement
  • Purpose
  • Fulfillment

Let’s take one of my clients Kristen for example 

She was experiencing everything that I just shared - overwhelmed, stuck, burned out and lost.  In fact, she would break down in tears for our first several sessions of working together.  What helped her get through this phase to the clarity of what she wanted to create in her life and career was love.  

Once she got that clarity - everything fell into place - what she wanted to do for self- care, how she wanted her relationships, her career, and everything in her life to look and from there we created a strategy to help her life her dreams which she is doing today.  In Kristen’s case, she decided she wanted to leverage a 25 year career into her own consulting business to give her more freedom and flexibility and time to do more of what she loves including self-care and time with her family.

And let’s look at Jenny’s story. 

 She was introduced to me and my work 3 years before we started working together.  She tried everything to change careers in a place where she felt miserable and stuck and also tried so many things to do more of what she loved in other areas of her life.  She even hired someone to look for jobs for her.   Jenny stayed stuck no matter how hard she tried, so she reached out to me for help.   We started in the same place - love.  She got clear on how she wanted to take care of herself better and what she loved in her career and life.   This translated to clear action to take - where to focus her job search efforts, being clear on how to present herself in networking and on her branding - LinkedIn, resume and cover letters and also in interviews.   When her dream job presented it - she went after it and she nailed the interview and got the job.  And again, the journey all started with love.

The list of similar types of stories can go on and on and what I can share is the consistent theme is all of my clients started with the foundation of love.

What I have found from working with my clients is that you may need support actually uncovering more pieces of what you love in all areas of your life.  Sometimes things are hidden and you just need someone to ask you the right questions to unlock what already lives inside your heart.  And sometimes you need help on how to put together the pieces of what I like to call - your passion puzzle.

  • Gratitude 
    • Examine what you already have in all areas of your life that you love, so you can invite in even more of that.
  • Take a Honest Inventory of Your Life
    • What is not working that you want to change.
  • Fall in Love With You.   
    • Celebrate all that you are right now and everything that you have accomplished
  • Create a Vision for 2021
    • From a place of loving who you are, examine each area of your life and what you want to add in for 2021 of what you love.
  • Map It Out 
    • Set milestones and actionable steps to help you live more of what you love in your daily, weekly and monthly planning

Imagine waking up each day with a life and career filled with all that you love.

You deserve it - this is your time.

2021 is the year that you will live what you love in your career and life.
