We’ve all heard the term “mid life crisis.” Some define it as a transition of identity and self confidence that occurs in middle aged individuals. Or a conflict between a person’s perception of themselves and their lives as they think they are and what they want them to be.

Now more than ever, given recent times, more of us are questioning our lives, we’re exploring really what matters and questioning how we’re showing up.

I believe this is a good thing!

In this episode we explore how to navigate a mid life crisis as a means to grow and come home to the REAL you.

How to Navigate a Midlife Crisis

When I was working in Corporate, it took me a long time to even entertain the idea that I had options. Let alone that I could leave and do something else.

I was adamant that I didn’t have an option or a choice. And that I HAD to stay and somehow make it work.

The truth is I had the great privilege of actually having a choice. And that really is a privilege.

There was immense guilt and shame wrapped up around having the option to leave a fabulous company and role, with awesome opportunities for career progression….

Even though I had savings in the bank and could “afford” to take time out to reassess, I couldn’t even see alternative options for my career because I was so fixated on needing money and that steady paycheque.

Back then, meaning and money were at odds with each other. I had to choose one.

Option A: I could make a lot of money – but the work wouldn’t be meaningful. Plus I had to work really hard.

Or

Option B: I could choose to focus on meaning – but not make a lot of money.

In any case, I had to make a choice.

These days I believe that you can have meaning and money in your career – with a few caveats.

The best place to start isn’t changing companies, industries or jumping into a business…   Looking outside of yourself to a different “thing” to complete you will only set you up to fail.    Please trust me on this.    I’m not saying that you shouldn’t make decisions and take action.    What I am […]
