Imagine this scenario:
You are considered THE BEST in the world at your chosen profession – according to critics, peers, well known in the public – and suddenly you MUST change your career.
Does this thought excite you, or terrify you?
If it is YOUR choice, then it’s a great thing!
If it’s doctor’s orders due to the damage you are inflicting on yourself, or due to a pandemic which demands it, then yes, that is terrifying.
I was in the same situation a few years ago because of my health.
This was a significant, and to some, a surprising, part of my book, “The Promise To The One”.
Very few people cheered me on, or even came along with me while I transitioned to a new place in my life and career, as they sat on the sideline and wondered if I’d lost my mind.
Truth is, it was crazy, looked crazy, sounded crazy, but it was necessary to my survival and happiness.
Years later I can look back and laugh about it now, but it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.
Luckily, I knew, back then, just as I know now, that it was and is my Calling.
What is your Calling?
How do you know you’re LIVING your Calling?
Are you willing to jump out of the airplane?
It comes down to your Promises and willingness to live them, despite the uncertainty ahead.
I hope you enjoy this video discussion with leadership expert, Heidi Totten, as we discuss what this was like for me.
In turn, this is intended to help you feel courage and power to Keep The Promise for yourself and go for it, wherever your Calling may take you!
