How can you make the vision that you have for what your best life will look like a reality?
Today we are talking about adapting a “next best self” mentality.
Our Growth Getters Live tickets are available now! We are having an in-person live conference on April 11-13th in San Antonio, TX, for service providers who are looking to uplevel their game and gain clarity in their business.
Your Next Best Self
Pivoting, changing and restarting are often looked at as a negative thing, though I will never understand this… because these are essential in life. Who you are today is nothing like who you were five or ten years ago.
To get to be the person you are today, you took so many turns, opportunities and risks to arrive here, and guess what? You are not done.
You will be doing the same thing as you navigate life forward.
“We create a vision for ourselves and we go after it.”
When you graduated high school, you had a dream in your mind of who you would work for, what industry, what work you would be doing, and how much you were going to make.
Eventually you went to work and learned more. You learned what worked and what didn’t… what felt good and what didn’t… and these helped to shape your next move.
Over time that dream role that you searched for started to feel less exciting, so you created another vision of yourself. You got more clear on who you wanted to work for, what you stood for, and what success could look like for you.
Simply put, you saw the next version of yourself and you upleveled.
At one point I was driven by my title and compensation, and then at another point, I was ready to make a full shift to a whole new industry.
I remember the leap, the fear and the change when I made that shift.
This is my example of the search for my next best self.
When I graduated college, I was Natalie 1.0. When I got a job as a cardiac nurse, I was Natalie 2.0, and so forth over the span of my career.
For each of these versions of me, I felt a vision, and to make this change and bring this vision to life I had to better myself, make a change, and get uncomfortable. Sometimes I sought out these changes and sometimes they happened to me.
A little over seven years ago, I felt a deep vision to be a different kind of mother to my kids, but my current work didn’t fit into that vision.
I had to make a faith-filled leap to change my situation to fulfill the vision I had for me and my family.
The reward was life changing, and it brought me to this point.
I had to make a huge leap, and I wasn’t really wasn’t fully clear on what it looked like but I knew the vision that I had.
I shifted from being driven by title and compensation to legacy.
“You are worthy of this search… the quest of your next best self.”
I had no idea where my quest would land me here, but I went to work on what my vision meant. I had to adapt my professional life into my vision, and get out of the patterns that had been plaguing me.
Having that vision of your next best self can rewire everything, and when you do this it will take work and risk, but the reward is worth it.
As operators we are great at making things come to life and often we focus those efforts on other people but I want to remind you not to forget about yourself.
“Your career deserves your attention, and you’re the only person who is going to give it that attention.”
It’s time to shift the focus to you and your vision:
- Does our career reflect your innate gifts?
- Do you work with the people or industry that complements your truest self?
- Do you do work that you love?
- If everything was easy, what would your work life look like?
Growth Getters Live
It’s time to cast the vision, and it’s never too late. No one else can do it for you.
We are hosting a 3 day conference in San Antonio TX on April 11-13th, called Growth Getters Live. This is for service providers who are looking to become their next best self, do work that excites and fulfills them.
When I left my corporate career, it took me nine months to take action because I couldn’t get clear on what my next best self desired.
If you are feeling complacent in your career as a service provider, Growth Getters Live is for you. By the end of the day on Day One, you will have crafted your next best self.
We will look at your professional skills, turn them into an offer and create a plan to get that offer in front of the right people. You will leave transformed!
One of the greatest benefits of live events is the massive transformation that takes place in a condensed amount of time, and I want this for you… so grab your tickets to Growth Getters Live!
