Career Pathway #194: I Really Want To…

This has been a happy week. I was able to let go of being behind in my work, not feeling a lot of energy for the tasks facing me at home, and other loose ends that are part of my daily awareness. Instead of focusing on those tedious and tiring details, I gave myself some freedom to just be. And, what I have noticed is that it was a very happy week. There was a sense of lightness, and I really felt that all was okay. What a difference “focus” can make.

Besides the lightness, I became much more open and aware of my thoughts surrounding my professional direction. Several times, I found myself thinking about “what I really want to do.” Sometimes when I find myself thinking about this, I become agitated, frustrated, and anxious. But this week, it was a completely different space. I was at peace, and coming from a place of both curiosity and knowing.

The question of “what do I really want to do?” is one of the most powerful that we have to consider and decide, whether it is for a year, five years, or over our professional careers. When we approach it in a calm and free state of mind, we help to set a much more productive atmosphere for exploring and processing. And it is from this state of mind that our own highest wisdom and knowing flow.

So, if you are truly interested in an honest and deep answer to the above question, then serve yourself by creating a peaceful time to process and be. Turn off the noise, let go of the demands, embrace a larger perspective on life, and let yourself unwind. You cannot focus on your drumbeat if you are listening to the beat of your boss, spouse, children, or others. Your power and answers will only come from you.

Coaching Inquiries: Are you at peace? How can you find some contemplation time, free of busy-ness, demands, and mental chatter? When you get quiet and think about what you really want to do, how deep can you go? How powerful are your answers? Do you really get to the core of your talent, motivation, and desire?
