Letting yourself let go so you can soar
Thank you so much for sharing this Deb! Do you have any tips for discovering what best aligns with our strengths? On the one hand, it's finding out what we're good at, and on the other hand, it's understanding what different roles/titles entail.
"Sometimes we are our own worst enemies because we lack the ability to see ourselves as clearly as others do. We have a concept of who we want to be and what role we want to play, but that may not actually align with our strengths. "
Winners never quit is probably in the running for the most false statement ever. Winners quit all the time. It's part of what they do on the way to winning.
Thanks for writing, Deb!
Love the article deep down. I finally find a right article to easily convince my family what I have been trying to do :)
This one struck a chord with me. Recently, I left my amazing job/company after 15 years. Everything was going very well, until one day I asked myself - What if I could design my ideal job/career what would that look like?
As I started jotting down my answers, I realized I had confined my life dreams and aspirations to within this company. Fast forward, I still miss my old job/team/company, but I am killing it in my new role! I am doing things today that I never would have gotten to in the job that I left.
Thanks for sharing this Deb, this resonated deeply with me as I just went through the same process.
“When I left my last role, I didn’t do it because I no longer loved the company, my team, or my work. I left because I knew that I could do more in my new role than I could in my previous one.” —powerful, and thought provoking. Thanks for sharing Deb. Great read as always 😊
Hi Deb: Thanks for another amazing post. Your posts resonate so well with me. So, I did let go of something precious last month to think, ponder, contemplate, explore better!! Here is an article I wrote about it:
Couldn’t agree more about decision to cut the cord when you feel its the right time vs worrying about sunk cost.
Thank you for this! One of the worst feelings is to know you are stuck, but to avoid moving from a place of desperation rather than from a place of purpose. This article did a great job outlining that.
Just what I needed to hear/read today! Thank you Deb for genuinely putting things in 'perspective'. I have always believed that words have the super power to move people, and you seem to always hit the right chord!
