Confusion can be defined as uncertainty or the state of being unclear in one’s mind about something. I am here to tell you that mindset is the secret weapon in career advancement.
Clients: I’m confused. I really don’t know what I want to do.
Me: Do you really not know what you want or are you afraid that you can’t have it?
I’m sure you know exactly what you want, but you haven’t convinced yourself that it is available to you. Your confusion is really fear and doubt.
My clients are women who are educated, experienced, and have worked in the professions they love. They are career women – not job holders. They are ambitious and hard working. My clients reach out to me because they are unclear about their next professional step – the one that will take them out of their comfort zone. This state of career confusion can be a blessing, a catalyst, a game changer.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Newsflash: With the right strategies and resources you can secure the job that you want, in the company where you want to work, earning the salary that you want no earn. It’s not just possible, it’s available to you. You can’t wish for it; you have to work for it.
3 Ways to Eliminate Career Confusion:
- Prioritize Your Needs – Often times, career women are leaders at home and at work and are used to putting the needs of others before their own. Now is not the time to ignore the things that you want and need. Determine your career needs. Consider everything from work schedule to salary and be brutally honest with yourself.
- Focus On Your Strengths – Instead of worrying about what you don’t have or what could go wrong, focus on your strengths. One way to focus on your strengths is with a Career Achievement Log – documented evidence of your career achievements and contributions. Having a record of all the great things you have accomplished in your career readily available in one place is a sure way to boost your confidence and clarity.
- Seek Help When You Need It – Ever heard the saying “two heads are better than one”? You don’t have to sort through career confusion and fear alone. This is what I love and do well. It’s my jam!! I have individual coaching packages and career products to help you assess, accelerate, and achieve your dream career.
