As human beings it's in our nature to grow, to want more, to set goals, and dream. Often times, new desires present themselves in the snow globe of our professional lives.
Do we stay?
Do we go?
Do we start our own business?
Do we move to the Caribbean and teach surfing?
Sometimes, however, we are so immersed in what is WRONG with our current situation, we don't see what is perfectly right.
For example, if you are at the point of extreme frustration due to issues with your boss, this is actually a gift. It's a gift because it's forcing us to confront our own "issues" with confrontation, communication, etc. and an "opportunity for growth." Cliché, yes... but so true!
I've been fortunate to have wonderful bosses in my life. There was one, however, that really triggered my insecurities and me. Often times I wish I could jump back through time using the tools I now have and instead look at this situation as an opportunity to expand beyond the drama, the insecurity, and the need to be right.
20/20 hindsight is easy...but we do have a choice for today. The choices we choose with intention today are what create new realities for our own lives, our teams, and our organizations. All it takes is getting just a bit uncomfortable. Here are a few tips:
Focusing on what is right in the situation and what you can control creates elevated energy within. At this point you realize either "hey I love my job" or another opportunity comes knocking with ease because like attracts like and when you raise your energy you attract the same. Changing our inner experience has the potential to create radical change in our everyday outside realities.
