Hello!

The 3 Biggest Stumbling Blocks Smart Women Face When Pivoting Into A Soul Aligned Career.

Finding Clarity

May 18, 2021

Albert Einstein famously said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result” 💁🏻‍♀️🤯 

Pivoting into a meaningful career that feels as good on the inside as it looks on the outside AND that pays the bills might not be your reality for a number of reasons…..

 

The other day I shared this image over on instagram and many could relate…..

 

Maybe you:

💥 Aren’t sure where to start with figuring out the core question “Can I do what I love and earn a living?”

 

💥 Are listening to people for inspiration but not actually doing anything tangible about the inspo in your own life

 

💥 Wishing that the next personality assessment will tell you what you “should do” so that you have a direction to follow

 

💥 Keep putting things off because life is “good enough” and you’re OK to tolerating the way things are for the time being

 

💥 Trying to wait for something to miraculously happen so that you have to make a change

 

If you wish someone would tell you what’s really needed to map your own path to a soul aligned career path without having to do anything hasty like quit your 9-5 and put your financial future at risk, you’re in luck!

 

I’m running a FREE masterclass training this Thursday 20th May where I cover the soul alignment framework to get the clarity you’re seeking.

 

During the masterclass I’ll be sharing all of the conventional and not so unconventional pieces you need to know so that you can step into your version of a soul aligned career…doing what you came here to do. 

 

In the workshop we’ll be covering:

 

👉 The 3 common mistakes high achieving smart women make when approaching a career pivot and how to avoid them.⁣

 

👉 How to unlock your unique alignment code and how to use your code to build a career that’s pleasurable, fulfilling AND prosperous.⁣

 

👉 The universal alignment keys that you need to have full body conviction and clarity on what your next career step is.⁣

The 3 Biggest Stumbling Blocks Smart Women Face When Pivoting Into A Soul Aligned Career.

 


 

Let’s dive right on in…

 

Stumbling Block #1: Finding Time To Prioritise Themselves + This Exploration

 

Let’s be real. Life is busy. 

 

There are only so many hours in the day. And there’s a lot to get done. 

 

When you work in Corporate you don’t have the luxury of figuring out your own schedule…you need to be on and available way beyond the traditional 9-5.

 

And so it’s normal at the end of a long busy day, when the kids are asleep, to just want to turn on Netflix and put your feet up. If you don’t have to fire up the laptop again that is….

 

If you find yourself in the same predicament, talking about how you’re not happy in your job but not doing anything about it…please don’t beat yourself up. 

 

There are limited hours in the day. You only have so much time. 

 

Plus figuring out the question of: “What I meant to do in my career?” is a big Q that you can’t just tick off your to-do list in 5 minutes.

 

Action Step: Give yourself some compassion and love for doing the best that you can. No good decisions come from beating yourself up so this is an important first step! 

 

Plus: If you want to carve out time to meaningfully dedicate towards figuring out Your Soul Aligned Career Path, come on over to a free training I’m running on just this. I’ll be covering the Soul Alignment framework to support you in coming back to your ideas, your purpose and what you need to do to tangibly make it happen.

Stumbling Block #2: Avoiding + Numbing Out Discomfort of a Soul Sucking Job

 

Going back to that example I mentioned above…

 

Turning on Netflix at the end of a long day and fiiiiinnnnally putting your feet up.

 

This can be a genuine pleasure (and well deserved too I might add)

 

OR

 

It can be an avoidance strategy….designed to numb out from the discomfort of the day and the truth that you’re in a job that isn’t aligned to who you are.

Siobhan Barnes (2)

The action on the outside seems innocent enough (i.g. watching Bridgerton on Netflix)….

 

But the intention behind this can either be genuinely pleasure filled or avoidant.

 

Avoiding and numbing out how we really feel is a common tactic the nervous system employs to keep us safe. 

 

I mean why would you want to feel like sh*t? 

 

Makes sense right?

Until….the avoidance eats you up and you feel worse.

 

Think about taxes….we put them off until the last minute….the pleasure of procrastination feels better than dealing with our taxes…although every time we think about them…we wince and shrink just that little bit in our body.

 

The truth is: being courageous to feel the discomfort is the very thing we need to do something about the situation we’re in (in this case a soul-sucking job).  

 

Action Step: Take a moment to ponder what you’re avoiding feeling…if you get honest…How do you really feel about your work and career?

Stumbling Block #3: Believing It’s Not Possible to Have a Meaningful Career + Make Money

 

Oh this is a biggie!

 

Our beliefs make up our operating system.

 

Our operating system controls what actions we take. Or don’t take.

 

The thing about our operating systems are that they are usually buried in our subconscious….we don’t even realise they’re at play. 

 

And one of the biggest stumbling blocks I’ve seen in the world of purpose and careers is the belief that it’s not possible to make money doing what you love.

 

I’m not going to go into detail about where and how we got this belief but it’s one that’s been instilled into a lot of us.

 

And it’s just not true.

 

There are many people doing work they love and earning a living…our minds are just so fixated on reinforcing this belief that we only SEE evidence to support our belief (that’s how our mind works – it’s fascinating and I geek out on this stuff but I digress.

 

Action Step: Evaluate if you’re telling yourself this story that you can’t earn money and have meaning. You’ll know you are if you’ve said to yourself 1. I can’t start all over again….or 2. It’s not possible to earn money doing [whatever dream you have] or 3. I’m trapped in this job because I need to pay the bills….
