So here we are in September 2020 – with a crazy year do you feel you’re ready for you next move, perhaps a pivot or realised what you have is not what you ever wanted, or are just starting.

Because it all starts with WHY are we doing this, and this is where so many of us start with the What? And we get it wrong!!

In fact, education doesn’t set us up for aspirations, the vision of the type of person we want to become. They start with what are we going to do.

If you have done some motivation theory or physolgy studies you’ll be more familiar. 

A Career with Purpose

But in effect the framework to building a successful career or I’m going to say life MUST align to your needs & values because this is incredibly important to feeling fulfilled at the end of the day, waking up with purpose in a full flow of high energy. 

Who wants that? Avoiding that mid-life crisis that says hey I’m just doing what everyone else wants or making safe decisions.

So many of us end up unfulfilled because we side shuffle side to side in our career. 

Now in this Live online class we cover three important areas that you should always start with when looking at your career development plan:

  1. Refocusing your mind on your ideal future – we cannot plan a career plan if don’t know what it is you want to achieve, nor what will make you feel satisfied.
  2. Learn the framework for building a successful career & life 
  3. Get clarity on what you love and your skills

So let’s delve right in you can watch the video here (don’t forget to grab your copy of the Career Success Plan Blueprint):

If I can recommend some bedtime reading I’d try Simon Sinek’s start with why?

He uses the concept of the golden circle to tell us why you want to do something and the most important foundation.

Vision of your Ideal Future Self

Now you’re going to take some time to envisage your ideal future self – the person you want to become, a thought leader, an innovator, a mentor, a good mum, acting with integrity (your values come out here)  – this aspiration determines why.

Every choice you make must support becoming this person. Just like the decisions of the last 5 years or 12 months ago determine where you are now. 

IT Career’s Take Over

Let me tell you a story not uncommon in an IT career. This guy spent all the working week living away in London. At the weekends he went home to see his family, a wife and two kids.

Like so many, he’d somehow fallen into a role with an attractive salary for a London based firm and thought this was a good decision.

This was until he spent a long period at home and reflected how much the kids had grown, how much joy they gave him and how he had wanted to be a great father. Yet every weekend was rushed and busy. He’d missed 2 years of them growing up and dad was a distant person. 

The Framework for a Successful Career

My pursuit of career progression and in building the ELiTe content, I’ve interviewed lots of successful people in technology & business. The framework shows the foundations that have supported their growth.

Brandon Burchard will tell you as a powerplant does not have energy you have to find the things that will generate your energy. Living your passion will feed your motivation.

If you’ve taken a look at the video you’ve probably started thinking about step one in the Career Success Path framework (grab your copy here).

Imposter Syndrome

I bet there some things you’d like to list as skills but doubt your ability or level of competence.

You are not alone, from all the people I’ve mentored and worked with impostor syndrome is huge and affects almost everyone.

But you must reflect on how much you have learnt even to get from where you were 5 or 10 years ago.

With Competence comes Confidence

So how do we get competent to build our confidence? You need to study, to learn, to practise, actively, intentionally, research, conferences, learn from others. Reading, podcasts are great now. 

So we have our skills / strengths here then on the other side the things we get fired up and passionate about – the things we can’t help but interject when we hear conversations – give me a yes in the comments if you know that there are things like that for you. 

I got into data because I love to research findings. I read about, listen and explore research findings – I love understanding behaviours and patterns. I tell everyone what I learn.

What are your passions and interests, types of work, types of industry, values. Look at these and your skills to discover your why.

Commit to Your Career & Personal Development

I want to leave you with one last thought, anything you give just 50% of the effort is really hard to stick at or gain momentum.

When you go all in 100% commitment – whatever you focus your energy and efforts on will succeed.

Here’s to building a career and life we love, making us happy and fulfilled at home too.  

Take care see you soon
