Hmmmm I really feel like that is a perfect description of one significant part of my current world. Thankfully I feel that I have amazing balance in so many other critical areas except one – That one is career direction. Here I am sitting at my desk (drinking a great glass of red wine) pondering my next move. I have been in a professional funk or rut for a couple years and I can’t seem to get out of it. I have been blessed with many opportunities and at one point a very successful business, in fact my poor husband is the victim in this as he has to hear my “crazy” ideas – ventures or opportunities!! He affectionately refers to it at “CRAZY BRAIN”
I think my real challenge is finding what makes as Tony Robbins says,: my “juices” flow – What is it that is going to make me want to jump out of bed in the morning. I had that once so at least I know it exists but what is it that can make me feel that way again??? I know I have great people skills – great sales and marketing abilities as well as the confidence to sit in a board room if required with big shots. The big question is how to use these skills and blend it with finding a passion.
I read an article about Melinda Gates – Wow she is amazing and I think to work for their foundation would be a great blend – Business development (aka fund-raising) – marketing and the best part of that would be the impact that could be made – How cool would that be to make an impact – really help those who need it and have all the resources to do it. But since I live in the LA area and they are in Washington State so that is not an option. If I could only find a blend of making great money while having the ability to give back – Now that would get my juices flowing!!!
I know that I am not alone in this “quest” for clarity. It seems there are many of us who have reached a point in their life where they need a change, a personal “purpose” and are searching for their own answer. ***At least one thing is for sure if I am going to live in the “land of confusion” I could not be in better company!!
The Journey continues…………………….
