How to secure a more fulfilling role in your current job
Your Career GPS
It’s beginning to feel like ground hog day where it’s the same shit new day. Every time you take 2 steps forward you find yourself taking 3 steps back…. You are taking action but not seeing the results you desire…. Perhaps you have even done a few courses, watched a ton of youtube videos, even read the books the influencer told you to, all in an attempt to gain some knowledge that will help you, yet still
It’s so bloody frustrating…. Why is this happening?
When you ask yourself this question – This is the moment where amazing things can happen…. If you are willing to do the work!!!
What am I talking about? Let me share a story…
Imagine you are a pilot flying from Paris to London
However your navigation system GPS isn’t working properly.
So you get yourself above UK and you can see from your window the landscape looks familiar and you know you’re over England however, because your GPS navigation system is working intermittently you find yourself at Manchester airport but you are supposed to land at London airport
You ask to land at Manchester but air control says nope head back to London. With the directions they give you, you head south, only you get lost and end up back at Manchester… Now it’s the second time you found your way here so to explain this you tell yourself well it must be destiny and whatever higher power you believe in must be sending you here for a reason!!!
As you are low on fuel Manchester air control finally let you land however you still need to get yourself to London…
Instead of realising that due to a doggy GPS system you have taken a slight detour and you need to organise transportation to London to get you to your final destination you decide to stay in Manchester.
For a little while life is good in Manchester but sure enough after sometime you start to feel anxious overwhelmed & frustrated because Manchester just isn’t working out – well of course it isn’t you were never meant to stay there in the first place it was a temporary situation and you were meant to move on but staying there created feelings of unworthiness and triggered negative thoughts and behaviour.
Warning signs to look out for…
This can look different for everyone however common symptoms include
- Burn out – exhausted
- Replay past failures and disappointments on loop in your head
- Self medicating with drugs alcohol and porn
- You live for the weekend as the rest of working week is shit
- Low mood
- Feeling alone even when with people
- First and last thing you do is check social media
I’m sharing this with you this because I can personally relate as this is exactly what I did… Until I finally hit rock bottom… Followed by hitting rock bottom 2 and 3 before I pulled myself up and started to learn how successful people managed their career growth. I’ve spent the past decade researching & learning from people at the top of their career field on what they do to succeed.
I have worked with educational institutions and researched through papers and journals on this subject. I’ve taken this data and used it with my clients to see what results I could create for them and the results are impressive.
|I get it you got lost in your feelings of excitement and when Manchester air control allowed you to finally land you felt relief and happy you were safe on solid ground forgetting that this wasn’t the final destination. |
You didn’t go out and fix the GPS system to get you back on track. Instead you settle in Manchester which was never your end goal.
It didn’t occur that you should get your GPS fixed and get back up in the air and on your way.
I see so many millennials treat their careers in this way which results in them frustrated and depressed… I was one of those so no judgement here. Instead I want to share with you the 3 common mistakes millennials make and a cheatsheet with solutions on how you can get yourself flying in the direction you desire so that you can create the lifestyle you dream of…
The 3 most common career sabotage mistakes millennials make are
1. Don’t Maintain a course when adversity hits
2. Struggle to deal with set backs
3. Don’t pivot and continue
Instead of fixing their Career GPS and figuring out how to deal with these challenges they start to second guess and put faith, effort & energy in to things that do not serve them in a meaningful way.
Let’s jump in and get you the solutions you have been searching for ….

Understanding then accepting this is key
