Become a High Performing Individual whatever your career

How would you feel if you knew that you are working you way towards being your best self?

Happy, right? Perhaps the most cited life goal by most of us.

For me, like a lot of you out there, being my best self and being happy is good for me and others because I have the optimal resources to help me and others.

So how do I become the best version of myself, I hear you ask.

We can provide a complicated answer to this question or a simple answer. The simple answer is the starting point that will lead you on to all the other things that you do as a result of this simple trigger. And by doing all of those things gradually you will be walking through life building on the best version of yourself.

The simple answer is to develop your confidence. Your confidence is directly linked to what you tell yourself, what thoughts you pay attention to, what thoughts you choose to invest in.

So, if you tell yourself negative stuff like 'I feel anxious...worried...fed up' then that is how we are going to feel. Those unwanted negative thoughts and feelings generate unwanted emotional and physical responses in our bodies. Ultimately the result is a negative impact on what we do, such as moaning to a friend.

Whereas if you tell yourself that 'I am going to feel calm, relaxed and in control of myself and my life' then that is how you are going to feel. Ultimately by focusing on this affirmation/mantra in the now each and every day, you will begin to notice and enjoy the positive changes in your life.

For example, you may find yourself dealing with problems better, taking up an enjoyable hobby or achieving better results at work.

Career Transition Blog

If you are considering changing your career somewhat or radically then this blog is for you.

I would like to invite you to take 5 manageable steps to kick start your career transition.

I invite you to consider your thinking on changing your career as a hopeful opportunity rather than something to fear. This alone will help you to take the first steps on your career transition journey.

What would I recommend that you do next?

1. Make a true assessment of what you are good at. My tip here is to ask people that know you well, to include work colleagues and people in your personal life.

2. Fit what you are good at to possible careers. Use google, careers sites, ask others and use your own knowledge.

3. List your achievements that you can use in the future career options.

4. Step out of your comfort zone and move into the learning zone. Research the career options that come up at 2.

5. Take one step a day towards your new career. For example the first step may be to hone in on 2-3 career options. The second step may be to assess the 2-3 options against what is important to you, For example you may rule out a career with high travel requirements/a long commute due to your health.

My role as a coach is to provide you with my full attention, to ask you powerful questions to help to raise your self belief and achieve the outcomes that you want. We will clarify your direction, help you to overcome obstacles, raise your motivation and achieve your action plan.
