“You Take Two Steps Forward, You Take Two Steps Back”

Today’s post is a short exercise I modified from a book called “Sarah, Book 1” by Esther and Jerry Hicks

I believe sometimes your career affects your life and your life can sometimes affect your career, finding a balance isn’t always easy, it’s a CHOICE!  Support yourself by taking two steps forward and create a little more of your own Career Life Balance.  Choose to take action.  Read and fill in the blanks below.  Isn’t having just a little more career life balance in your life worth 10 minutes to walk through the process?  Let me know what you discover.

First Step is knowing what you DON’T want!

“I can’t work here anymore, I am afraid, I’m not challenged, don’t want to make are wrong move, I know I don’t want, fill in the blank “_____”

Second Step is knowing what you DO want!

I want to find the right company culture, I want to work with people who are innovative, on the cutting edge of their profession? I want to feel FULFILLED with my work, I want to stand in my true potential, I want to create a better life for myself and others, fill in the blank ” _______”

Third Step is finding the feeling place of what you DO want. Talking about it and visualize it until you feel like you are already there.

Practice sitting in the present moment, focusing on your body, put your hand on your heart and just tune into your breathing, allow your body and mind to become centered and grounded. Write, type, or record yourself speaking and flushing out the details of what you want to create for yourself? Imagine the greatest of all possibilities and keep imagining it until you feel it.

Fourth Step is when you get what you want, the physical manifestation of your desire. Have fun, don’t try too hard to remember all this. Practice Appreciation. That’s the key.

Step out in faith. When you are done, take two steps back and set up a time the next day and do it again, say out loud what you want to create, and trust that you will make it a reality. Act AS IF and let the rest happen.

Make it a great one!

Hugs to you!
