I’m finding it difficult to decide what it is that I truly want. What if the things that I want aren’t right for me? Do I trust that the universe will point me in the right direction or will I waste more time trying to make things happen that just aren’t suited to me?
Right now, I am working towards securing a job in a large corporate firm to gain some experience as a graduate. I know this experience will put me in good stead for eventually working freelance, which is what (I think!) I ultimately want.
I find the daily grind of 9-5 pretty difficult though and workplace relationships challenging. Do I continue down this path ‘wanting’ a corporate 9-5 job and commit to managing my mind every step of the way? Have I perhaps found this environment challenging in the past because I haven’t been managing my mind and could it be completely different this time around, armed with a new approach and strategy to succeed?
Look forward to your thoughts xx
Knowing what I want…
What it it isn’t the right decision?
Indecision. Self Doubt. They feel so real, so valid, so worthy of our time and concern.
They are total dream killers.
What is a bigger waste of time…a month of indecision or a month into the ‘wrong’ decision?
Really consider this question.
I teach that the only wase of time is indecision or a life without any self enquiry – the rest is winning or learning.
It sounds all nice and rosey in abstract. In reality it means some decisions are a success and others are a red hot mess…
You get to decide if its right / wrong / a waste of time / just part of the journey. You write that story.
Either way, what you decide today…in 2, 5, 10, 20 years time, will look very different to next week even if you stay in coroporate.
I am not telling you what to do – but personally I think the corporate 9-5 is a good choice – learn to manage that, learn to see the gift in that, learn to love that – the skills you gain in managing workplace relationships, being an employee, being monitored and assessed – will be so beneficial when it comes to working freelance / starting your own business.
What is the 10 year goal?
What do you need to do to get there?
If a period in corporate is part of the journey, embrace it, take it on, learn from it, make it work for you and dont get stuck there, when it gets easy, comfortable, safe…then its time.
