I’m over at Whitney Johnson’s site this week. I delve deeper into some of the 10 Rules for Brilliant Women and talk about what helped me transition to a more fulfilling career.
Some highlights from that conversation:
“Our callings reflect the grandeur of our souls, but we are often quick to label them as grandiose. We have to get past the “Who do you think you are?” thing, which can come from external critics or the critic within.”
“We — especially those of us trained in critical thinking skills for our work — often act as the critics, the skeptics, the analysts, in relationship to our heart’s desires. There are moments for that — moments for strategizing and planning with a critical eye — but they are rare and they come later in the self-actualization process. First, and primarily, we need to be the nurturers and unwavering friends of our heart’s desires.”
“One night, sitting up in the middle of the night, feeling the pain that we feel when we aren’t living the life we feel called to, I realized something. I realized that without knowing if my dreams were possible, I could still make one very important move: I could step back onto my own side. I could put my hand on my heart and say to it, “I don’t know how we’ll get those things you desire, honey, but from now on I will be on your side. You’ve got me back on your team.”
