How to take stock of where you are and where you are going to create valuable opportunities today

Updated: Apr 8, 2022

Let's talk about desires and opportunities. The two are very tightly intertwined. It's essential to get clear on your desires to help create opportunities to support your life's vision.

After being in a career for a while, the career desires you once longed for dwindled. They get drowned out by life, busyness, and everything around us; the responsibilities, milestones, goals, projects, achievements that we focus on when we're hard workers, high performers, high achievers.

Over time, you feel a little empty or a little disillusioned. What you wanted to create at one point in your life, dreamed of doing, has fallen to the wayside.

Today, I want to remind you that we've been going down a path as life has been happening for us.

Stop and take stock of what's happening.
  • Are you doing what matters most to you?

  • Have you planned and intended for life to happen this way?

  • In what direction would you choose to steer your career and life?

Yes, life will throw us curveballs.

While we are dealing with curveballs, we can continue to be mindful and purposeful about how we lead our lives every month, quarter, every year.

It's the accumulation of those times when being present and aware of what we're doing--versus acting unconsciously--that lead us to live the life and career we desire.

If you happen to find yourself in a place where you feel off track, perhaps because of life circumstances- jobs you've taken, family issues, health issues, you've had to take turns you didn't anticipate, that's life.

I'm sending compassion, kindness, and grace your way, so you can accept where you are, dare to assess it, and ask yourself if this is the direction you want to continue to go. And if it isn't, stop and evaluate what's most important to you at this stage in your life.

What matters most? What could truly make a difference in your life, bring you more joy, health, happiness, and peace?

I know for me, peace is a significant component.

By the way, this happens to the majority of us. Most of us experience feeling off track at times.

If you connect to what I'm sharing, you're not alone. It's never too late to stop and acknowledge where you are and ask yourself, am I going down the right path? And if you're not, it's never too late to tweak.

Easier said than done? If you need support, you can reach us at to set up a complimentary strategy session and explore how our programs can support you.

Live with purpose, live with joy!
