So many leaders have gotten to where they are today thanks to their grit and passion. The further they go on their career journey and the more “success” they achieve, the further they get from their zone of genius. It's time to (re)claim that zone, and in so doing, create healthier cultures - in the workplace, at home, and in our society in general.
Mindshifting is the process of stirring the pot. It’s about asking the difficult, inevitable, vital questions that you can’t avoid anymore and shifting your thought patterns into realms you haven’t been in before.
Every one of us should experience this process but many never get there. It’s not an aha-moment - it’s an aha-movement. Mindshifting is a privilege, yet should be a necessity.
In the process of mindshifting, your goals and intentions might change, because we peel away wishes and expectations placed on you by others. Once you have your inner compass, and a true goal is identified, we work your way towards reaching that goal.
You are perceived as successful, yet you feel a void inside. You have been trying to fill it for a decade or even longer already, by jam-packing your agenda, growing your bank account, progressing in your career, or even seeking alleviation from substances.
But that is like trying to fill a sealed aluminum can by throwing stones at it. It makes a noise but doesn’t fulfill the purpose. The truth is, you can’t fill this internal void with the external stuff.
Lack of passion in your work/day to day
Lack of satisfaction from your achievements
Obstacles are just a part of the process
Tasks you don’t love get done with ease
Feeling of flow
The process of realigning yourself with the true you is hard and demanding, it takes time and dedication. That means you have to do some uncomfortable work, but with this work come insights, energy, motivation, and liberation.
Your self-esteem keeps strengthening. And with that, life becomes easier, your attitude to what comes your way changes, and joy and gratitude become a natural part of your days. You have the energy to live your life out loud.
It’s not going to be easy. But rewarding and fulfilling, I guarantee!
