Look around you. It’s Obvious, people live in a state of ‘I wish‘. I wish things were different, then I would do this, or that…they often say. At birthday parties we blow out the candles and make a wish. But what is often overlooked is the fact that our private Interior wishes can come through! Oftentimes, we are our own inhibitors. If only we would act. Act on our desires and our wishes, then our dreams would come through. Last year, one athlete at the Rio games shared a goal that he had written in his high school Year book years before. It said simply…”my goal…to become a world-class athlete“;  and he did.

We can do it too. All we need to do is act. We are not all able to do it on our own and that’s when it’s wise to seek the help of a coach. Someone who has your interest at heart. Someone who will be available to lead and guide you to take the right steps and make the right decisions. Here are 3 common Questions people who need a coach ask.
1) I hate my job! How can I break free and have the courage to follow my passion?

  • Don’t walk away… Stay in your job if it pays the bills. You need that security.
  • Create a plan, be patient, and wait.The time will come when you can walk away.
  • Trust the process. Know that with the right daily actions you are one step closer to doing what you love
  • Most important – Don’t give up. You are where you need to be right now

2) I get excited about starting something new! But then I give up. How do I make myself follow through?

  • First of all, do what YOU want to do. Not what someone else wants you to do. If you go against your inner desires, it will create internal havoc in the long run
  • Reflect on why you began in the first place
  • Sometimes it seems too hard to achieve, or takes too long. Stick to it because it will be worth it
  • Take small steps. Do at least one thing each day towards your goal. Your future self will thank you

3) How do I find my passion when I don’t feel any?

  • When we don’t know what the future holds, naturally we get anxious. Anxiety is tied to the unknown. It restricts you and prevents you from finding your passion
  • Be open to learning more about yourself. It’s one of the most important things you can ever do
  • Allow yourself to enjoy the journey and be satisfied with your progress
  • Everything will fall into place at the right time

Sometimes U Win… Sometimes U Learn


Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn. But most important of all is to be yourself. That’s when you win, and nobody can take it from you!

Cheers to new Learning!

 

Confusion is Nothing New


The challenges of life often leaves us Confused, scared. But confusion is nothing new. Decisions arise. Should we go this way or that? Should we leave this job and accept a new opportunity? Should we marry this mate or that one? Such decisions about the unknown create fear, confusion, that causes apathy.

But you know what’s worse? Not making a decision at all. Some are often left in a hole because not taking a risk, not making a decision, staying in our ‘safe’ place leaves some unaware of how much more they could achieve.

Today, be encouraged. Try something new! Go after your dreams! Goals! Aspirations! Whichever way, you will be a success for having tried at all.

Go ahead….try!

Time Out…

Peace, quiet, calm, serenity. That’s what weekends, holidays, vacations are for. To reboot, unwind, and get back in the game.

As workaholics, we don’t often do it. We feel it’s a Luxury  that we cannot afford. Still, we spend time wishing, hoping, even complaining at times. But we can do anything that we put our minds to.  And …relaxing is one of the most important things to do.

So plan a getaway! Or a Staycation! It will work wonders for your mind, your work, your business, career, and your life.

Breathe.

Stuck…Drop That Fork!

 

IMG_4768

Ever been caught between a rock and a hard place? You ask yourself “should I, or should I not?”The choices we make in life are sometimes good, sometimes bad; at times right, at times wrong. But kudos to you when you make a choice!

STUCK
Making a choice is not always easy. We hesitate, deliberate and become stuck. To be stuck means to be trapped in something. Not being sure which direction to take. Have you ever been there? You experience sadness, complacency, a loss of care. Even when you do care, you feel caught, remain steadfast-unmovable…not sure what to do. Remember our beloved child actor McCaulay Culkin? We want him to remain a child forever. We want to be able to watch Home Alone during the holidays and have him remain as he was without changing to feed our fantasies of the ideal family vacation during the holidays!

Macaulay-Culkin
But life isn’t like that. As we contemplate where we are now in our life, in our career, relationship, health…, we often come up short. Few of us find satisfaction that where we are now is where we want to be.

So today, take some time and reflect. Are you where you want to be in life… and if not, why? Then take action. This will help you get unstuck and back on track. Drop that fork of procrastination! Start moving to achieve your dreams, goals, and aspirations! Before you know it, you’ll Rock!

Career On The Move…Job Relocation

img_8431

Moving! It’s one of the most stressful things to do! But moving for desired personal reasons including new job, new spouse (yikes!), education, and more makes the end result more gratifying! We get that Adrenalin rush because it’s something we desire. Packing those boxes, suitcases, and rummaging our belongings into trucks to go away , to Relocate…makes the journey worth the while (well at least through the honeymoon stage). I have done my fair share and have also helped many career transitioners relocate in my HR consulting role.

To make things easier, Tor Constantino shared five things to ask for when relocating for a job. These are:
1. Take a scouting trip.
     Purpose: To see your new home environment of course! Look for permanent housing
    while you’re at it.
2. Ask About Temporary Housing
   This helps offset the burden of security deposits, and helps in finding the best option for a more permanent home without the pressure.
3. Whole house pack and transport
    Some companies provide this but it is cautioned to read the fine prints. Know what it
   entails and by the way, some things are tax deductible. So save receipts for gas and more.
4. Storage of Home Goods.
    Some transportation companies provide storage which can be an advantage until you find your ideal home.
5.Cash Stipend for Miscellaneous Expenses
   And they do come in many forms, from airfares, car rental, family dislocation (some here, some there), and the like.
Moving! Relocation! It’s hard but sometimes it cannot be helped especially when the grass seems greener on the other side. Get organized! No need to be scared, it’s not such a bad thing.
