Ten tips for moving to Career Freedom
Really, Really Hate your Job
focusing on what you want instead of how much you want to escape. When you
find yourself sharing the latest horror story, stop in mid-sentence and say,
"What I want to have is..."
an image that describes you in your job. Are you on a riverbank with no way
to get to the other side? Lost in a jungle? Poking through a thorny hedge? When
you get comfortable with the image, begin visualizing a change in the obstacle.
Imagine building a bridge across the river or finding a path in the forest.
Don't force the image or the change. When you're ready it will come.
of developing skills,
not serving time.Take every course that's
offered and focus on skills that can lay a foundation
for your own business or next job. Can you learn HTML or PowerPoint? Can
you use some evenings, weekends and lunch hours to solicit some free lance gigs?
Focus on satisfactory, not superior
Use the time difference to build your new life. People often say, "I can't
do anything -- I work ten hours a day!" If you are firing yourself or
expecting to be fired, your job is finding a new job. Be ethical: you owe your
company the minimum you need to earn your salary." But don't be surprised
if you start to accomplish more than ever and find yourself getting promoted.
What conflict are you escaping?
Dishonesty? Corporate greed? Hypocrisy? Allow yourself to wonder if these
qualities are mirrored in your own life -- or even in your mind. If everyone
around you seems dishonest, are you being dishonest with yourself? With others?
After you resolve your own conflict, you may find the workplace has changed or
you have been catapulted into a new, more satisfying life.
on your shield and armor when you
enter your workplace. Everyone should learn how to create a psychic shield.
Imagine that you are surrounded by an outer shell that is made of a solid
material - so strong that nothing can get through to hurt you. Some people
prefer to imagine a protective golden light, but I think the solid shield is
stronger. Take two or three minutes to put on your shield, every day, before you
enter the workplace.
Give yourself a gift every day --
a splurge of time or sensual taste buds. Read a book, talk to a friend, eat your
favorite food. Don't deaden your senses with alcohol (although if you're a wine
connoisseur, your special wine can be a gift) or spend big bucks at the mall.
Find at least one thing in
your life to appreciate: the softness of your cat's fur, the winter sky, the
spontaneous hug from a friend. Appreciate as much as possible about your job:
the money, the view from the window, the new computer, friendly conversations
with the guy down the hall. Savor the experience. Appreciation is the engine
that attracts good things into your life.
Tune in to your intuition before
deciding what to do next. Meditate and listen to the world around you. The
saying "frying pan into the fire" is real. If your goals and desires
do not come from a secure place within yourself, you will find yourself paying
undue attention to wet blankets ("If you quit you'll never get another
job") and false friends ("Just quit! Move to Tahiti! You won't
starve!"). Sometimes the same "advisor" proposes both ideas in
the same week. A good coach or counselor will give you confidence in your own
intuition, not impose their views of what you should do now.
10. Write this down
somewhere: After you've left -- and you will -- all that time will seem to
have gone in the blink of an eye. You
will have trouble remembering what bothered you so much. The rest of your life
will still be ahead of you.
