Just how Confident are you?

Rona Tyrrell was a member of a women’s spirituality group at her church. At 43, she was shy to speak up withfriends, or in groups. During a convention on seniors activity group Rona wasunexpectedly asked to speak to the members. After the initial panic and fear,she slowly found herself relaxing.

Rona Tyrrell was taking aconfidence building course at the time and was 2 weeks into it.

Don't overlook your values when looking for a job!

I am getting a lot of coaching calls from folks who are going from one job to the next and wondering why they are still unhappy.
What is fairly consistent is the initial desire is to get into task mode; to decide what skills and experience to highlight on their resume, to decide what tasks they want to do every day at work, and/or decide what things they should be doing in order to gain experience and get advancement.
These are fine things to consider and ultimately should be listed. However when you talk to folks who are truly happy and have found the job of their dreams, it is because it aligns with their passion, purpose and values.

If you are stuck, try what seems to be counter-intuitive

Have you ever noticed that the more you try to get somewhere the more you feel like you are falling behind. Sometimes the counterintuitive approach is the direction you want to go. If you want more energy, exercise;  if you are tired, sleep less; if you want to loose weight don't starve yourself, eat often. So if you aren't getting the results you want try taking a different route..one that is scary, counter-intuitive, that which seems to be too crazy to be true...you might just find that it has been your perspective of what is true that has held you back!

Don’t be a Lone Wolf in achieving your goals…JOIN THE PACK

The term lone wolf originally referred to a wolf that was an outcast and probably didn’t have much time left in this world. In the wild, the lone wolf can quickly starve, or be killed without the support of the pack.  Wolves have been shown to need and want social interaction.  Through their forms of play and shared responsibilities the individual wolf is supported, protected and nurtured because of its membership to a group.   In most instances a wolf without a pack for support will die.
