14 Aug Fire Your Job (or your life manager)
Have you ever wanted to fire your job? Seriously. You’re fed up. You’re unmotivated. You dread getting out of bed in the morning and all you want to do is go in and tell your job, “You’re fired!” On top of it all, you feel guilty because everyone says you “have it all,” but you feel like it’s all just a facade.
In those moments, it can be hard to see a way out. It’s terrifying to think of leaving because you don’t yet see the next step. You might not even be able to identify your talents or what you want to do next!
So how are you supposed to figure out how to live the life you want to live . . . when you can’t even figure out what that is!!!
I know. I’ve been there. That’s why I am so certain that firing your job (or your life manager) is absolutely the right way to go, even if only metaphorically for just a few minutes.
Don’t worry about whether you have the exact right answer to what you want to do. There isn’t one right answer. There is no single right path to follow. And there isn’t a pass-fail exam at the end.
Let’s just start with one step – beginning to find your passions.
Take a few moments to answer 5 simple questions. Even if you can only come up with a few words for each, you’re on the right track!
And keep in mind . . . there is no idea too crazy to pursue at this point. Every idea is a good idea . . . at least for now!
- If you were forced to leave the house every day, how would you choose to spend your time? The only rule is you can’t do anything you normally do – no visiting the mall, no hanging out in the coffee shop, no socializing or spending time fulfilling obligations, no smart phone or social media. This is just YOU time, doing something you love. Where would you go and what would you do?
- What do you love to do right now? Can’t think of anything? Check your browser history. What websites have you spent time on? Check your TiVo and objectively look at what shows you record. These are often a reflection of your best interests.
- What makes you feel strong? Do you feel strong and successful when you’re helping others get through a crisis? Maybe your strength is in writing or lecturing. Maybe you have an artistic side.
- What do people ask you for help with? This is a biggie! Your passion and skill is often obvious to others, even when you don’t necessarily recognize it yourself.
- And last . . . don’t skip this one! . . . What would you do if you suddenly inherited a billion dollar estate, and you could literally immerse yourself in any passion you wanted to? Take a moment to reflect on the top two or three interests that you might pursue. You may be surprised to find that there is something there that you can put into motion right now, today!
Once you’ve answered those questions, you’ll find this inspiration will live in the back of your mind, working away at finding a solution to getting UNstuck and moving toward the life you deserve!
- Where would you go and what would you do if you had no obligations?
- What activities do your really enjoy right now?
- What makes you feel strong?
- What do people ask for your help with?
- What would you do if you could immerse yourself in any passion?
