A belated Kung Hei Fat Choi to you!
I wish you a really happy healthy and love filled year of the dog.
For the last seven days we’ve been celebrating Chinese New Year here in Hong Kong.
It’s been wonderful time to connect with family and friends. For us as a Barnes household we’ve been hanging out at home, going to the beach, hiking and spend some time at the peak….which has all been just wonderful.
With a little bit of time to just “be” and not “do”….I feel really inspired and really invigorated to talk to you this week about….New Beginnings.
Who doesn’t love a new beginning?
If 2018 hasn’t started in the way that you have hoped I want to invite you to step into a new beginning for yourself.
It’s the year of the dog and we’re actually 7 days into the lunar new year but it doesn’t matter. You can actually choose to step in to a new beginning at any point in time.
It doesn’t have to be the start of the year. Even the Chinese New Year. Heck, it doesn’t have to even be on a Monday.
You get to make a choice any which time that YOU choose.
Even now. Are you in?
Are you curious to know the #1 key to embracing a new beginning and have it actually stick so that you can make your dream life and career a reality?
Watch this week’s video blog to learn the first step to embracing that new beginning so you actually achieve your dream career.
Short on time? Read on for the transcript.
What time is it where you’re at? Where are you watching this?
For me, it’s now 4.37pm.
You get to make a new choice at any time that you choose.
And I invite you to step into that new beginning for yourself. Right now.
You know, many of the women I work with have really big hearts and really big aspirations to do meaningful work that’s beyond just a paycheck.
Meaningful aspirations that are beyond just going through the motions.
For the women I work with they want to make an impact and give back to others while still being financially responsible and earn a good living.
Now it can be quite a challenge to cross that bridge, right?
We’ve been conditioned to believe that we can only achieve success in a linear way.
In my opinion, the two common ways are:
Option #1: Climb your way up the corporate ladder and go to the very top or
Option #2: Start a business and become a successful entrepreneur
The startup scene in Hong Kong is so popular for that reason I believe.
These are two distinct paths that are definitely available to all of us.
But what’s most important is that you align with your true soul’s calling, your true soul’s purpose, and your true soul gifts.
Now if you want to achieve an aligned career and you want to do the work that matters then you’ve got to start listening to yourself and actually stepping into that person who is successful.
You have to step into that woman who is:
…..confident in her skin.
…..feels like she’s worthy of clients
…..feels like she’s worthy of a good salary from her company
….sure that she’s deserving of the title
…..ready to receive all the things that you desire
I want you to think right now: what is your career goal?
Why is that important to you?
Who is that woman who has all of that?
Picture that woman in your mind’s eye and ask yourself these questions:
How would you be?
How would you act?
How would you speak?
How would you make decisions?
….if you were already that person.
I invite you to step into that woman now because when you want to embrace a new beginning you’ve actually got to embrace that person that you need to be in order to get that next level.
So I invite you this week with the beautiful Lunar New Year energy to step into that version of you.
It’s time to step into that version of you that has already achieved those goals of yours.
Think about that version of you who’s happy, who’s fulfilled, who’s content, who’s successful whatever that might look like to you.
Start to embrace her today.
How can you honor her?
What can you wear?
What decisions can you make?
How do you pamper yourself?
What do you read?
Who do you spend time with?
Phew! That’s a lot to cover but I want you to think about that version of you who’s already achieved that goal of yours and start to embody her today….
Because when you do that, you’re going to:
…..call in the opportunities
….make decisions that are smarter
….find your way back home to your soul aligned career.
Now before you go I really want to hear from you….
- What’s your biggest challenge when it comes to stepping into a career that’s really aligned with who you are but that also pays the bills?
- What thoughts come up for you?
I’m cooking up a little special something for you all and I want to hear what you what you are currently being challenged by.
Is it the fear of failure?
Is it feeling like you’re not good enough?
Is it fear that you don’t have the finances in place?
Is it that you lack clarity?
Let me know in the comments below.
I’m cooking up something for you to make it really relevant to you I want to know your struggles and challenges. Those who speak get rewarded! So I’d love to hear from you below.
In the meantime, have a beautiful beautiful week and enjoy stepping into this new version of you.
