Screw dashboards, cubicles, commutes & early morning meetings.

For YEARS I worked from the dashboard of my car. I was a "road warrior" in pharmaceutical sales and before that I was a manager at Enterprise Rent A Car.

On top of monotonous commutes, I was so fed up with driving, dashboards, traffic jams, road rage, packed lunches and shitty weather.

12 years of being CAR CAPTIVE made me SHUDDER at the thought of going anywhere. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

When I started my own online coaching business in 2011, the first 3 years were spent on a 13" lap top from my COUCH in yoga pants! Home was the only place I wanted to be for a long time.

Looking back, I'm grateful that my pharma company downsized after a merger. It led to me a FREEDOM I'd always dreamed about in a career. And I get to show other professionals how to do the same.

Now, when I do drive it's on
my terms, 
my time of day, 
my kind of weather,
and I'm going where ever I damn well please!

There is life after a corporate break up. And it can be very FREEING. 
My advice??? Give your FEARS the FINGER ---> because if you aren't driving into your own career GPS, then you'll forever be confined to someone else's.

You have to win in your HEAD before you can WIN in LIFE.

One of the biggest MYTHS I see people believe is that if their circumstances are DIFFERENT, then they will finally achieve the outcome they desire.

πŸ‘ˆπŸΌπŸ‘‰πŸΌThey blame OTHERS for their failures, mistakes and circumstances. They can't own their mistakes. It's always someone or something else. πŸ™„

I see it more often in business, but also in relationships.

πŸ‘ˆπŸΌπŸ‘‰πŸΌWhen you give away your power by blaming others, you also give away the very opportunity to GROW in your own life. It may feel easier to do short term, but is more damaging to your growth in the long run.

Why?

You stay a victim and you will stay POWERLESS.😞

Feeling powerless will keep you STUCK and ANGRY.😑

And you take that internal angry victim mentality right along with you to the next business or relationship. The people and platform may change, but YOU haven't. πŸ‘ˆπŸΌ
You and your SAME issues will eventually, resurface when the honeymoon is over.

😑😑😑 Surrounding yourself with others also stuck in that same powerless anger doesn't validate yours nor does it justify you.

🌟YOU validate, you.🌟

🌹Guess what- there will always be stuff that happens in life. We are always being given opportunities to mature. We ALL have insecure thoughts that get in our head, and we all have triggers that can make us defensive.

πŸ€” It's how well you can take ownership in them and GROW from them that will ultimately determine your happiness, mental freedom and long term quality of life.😊😊😊
