Jumping off the Broken Career Ladder

The dispute I am having in my head today is…

that our society places an over-importance on achievement measured by our income, our job title, our car we drive, our neighborhood we live in and the list goes on …

We bind our self-worth and purpose to our career or our jobs instead of the experiences we’ve had or the people we’ve met who have influenced us in a positive way.


Those that claim to win the achievement game have structured an aggressive plan for their life. It seems they never really live the life they want because they calmly pass by tempting detours with horse-blinders on.

When we compare ourselves to our more disciplined peers, we might feel like we are losing the game.
If we always compare ourselves to others, we will be eternally climbing, never happy with where we are.
  • I refuse to compare myself to others…
  • I have been my biggest speed bump…
  • I have also been my biggest lead-foot on the Ferrari
  • This means when I set my mind to doing something, I step on the gas and go!

Stop building a personal summary about your educational, and professional qualifications and start living a life you love. Your life is like a coin. You can spend it or someone or something else will spend it for you.

Some thoughts to leave you with:
  • Live like there are no limits to your abilities.
  • Fear should not limit you, but rather, it should drive you.
  • If you own a business or startup, get clear on who is your perfect client.
  • You’re not for everyone. Identify the value you bring.

Tip #1  – People will think you’re crazy because they’ve given up on their dreams…
Tip # 2 – Learn how to have an unreasonable attitude. [in other words be unreasonable with yourself and the goals you want to make happen…]
Tip #3  – Learn to close the sale
Tip #4  – Be outrageous in your thinking & be relentless in your actions
Tip #5  – Learn to be an avid reader…keep learning

The creation and future of your self-development, your self-awareness, your business or startup is about having connectivity, transparency, energy, and bringing value.
