Time to read: Less than one minute then you are back at it!
Today’s article is told with permission. Not just with permission but with, “OMG, a RESOUNDING YES!”
One of my new clients, let’s call him Ted, was telling me about…
- His discouraging, demotivating, and soul-sucking job.
- His beautiful, growth-filled, and conscious personal life.
Every day, Ted goes to work, serves up new business and watches his company disappoint and fail to deliver to those new customers in ways, that in his mind, lack integrity. (Why he has tolerated a work situation that lacks integrity is a newsletter for another day.)
And, Ted has made significant and brave changes in his personal world. He has embraced an alcohol-free lifestyle, committed to a wonderful and loving relationship, and prioritized a long list of amazing volunteer activities that feed his life purpose.
One part of his life is integrated and intentional. Another part is out of integrity. Have you seen this dynamic in your world - where one area feels great while another feels crummy?
Here’s the good news. You already get it. You already know what to do.
When I asked Ted what enabled him to be brave and intentional in his personal life, he said “reflection and positive action.”
Perfect. Ted took a homework assignment to think about how to bring his own wisdom of reflection and positive action to his work life. Then he can sit back and watch with awe as things start to change.
So, take a look at the parts of your life that feel great. What are doing to make those parts great? Make a short list and then apply your own wisdom to the parts that stink.
You already know what to do. You already have the tools that work for you. You just have to put them to use.
Then tell me all about it. I love hearing from you.
With rebel love,
