• Are You Part of The 12%?

    Have you ever found yourself among the 12% who feel truly satisfied with their current job? Or perhaps you can relate to the feeling of being stuck in a soul-crushing job, which affects over 85% of people over 45?

    These statistics are startling, but they shed light on a common issue that many individuals face: dissatisfaction with their work.

    According to a Robert Half survey, only 12% of employees feel very satisfied with their current job, while 47% express a moderate level of satisfaction. Furthermore, Gallup reports that 60% of people feel emotionally detached at work, with 22% feeling sad and 18% feeling angry.

    It’s essential to ask yourself: How can I truly live a life that feels fully alive when I’m not satisfied with work?

    This question struck me profoundly when I first encountered the phrase “A case of the Sunday night blues.” Suddenly, it all made sense—I was experiencing exactly that! Each week, I would eagerly await Friday, enjoy my Saturdays, use Sundays to catch up, and then, as evening fell, the dreaded Sunday night blues would hit me. I had to wake up in a few hours and go to work! But why was this happening? I was doing what I was supposed to be doing, right? Isn’t this just how life is supposed to be?

    In that moment, I realized that something had to change. I understood that I was the only person who could make it happen. But where to start? The options seemed overwhelming at first.

    Fast forward 20 years, and after taking control of my life, I have never looked back. Today, I live a life where work feels like a privilege, not an obligation. I focus on my strengths and engage in activities I love. I have discovered a sense of fulfillment and freedom by serving others in a way that aligns with my purpose.

    Imagine waking up tomorrow and experiencing work as a place where you thrive rather than merely survive. Picture yourself creating something you are genuinely passionate about. Even if you are already satisfied and thriving, chances are you know someone who isn’t, and it’s disheartening to witness.

    The good news is that change is possible. As author and entrepreneur Jim Rohn once said, “If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree!” Regardless of how challenging it may seem, you possess the power to transform your circumstances.

    This is where I come in. When I found myself in your shoes, I sought the guidance of mentors and coaches who helped me navigate my choices, identify my strengths, and develop a growth mindset. There were times when I had to pivot, and it made all the difference in the world. There were also occasions when I had to reinvent myself entirely.

    You might feel like nobody truly understands where you are right now, and to an extent, that’s correct. However, I have the resources and expertise to guide and empower you to live a life of fulfillment and freedom. With over 20 years of coaching experience, I have had the privilege of assisting individuals from all walks of life, witnessing their incredible transformations.

    But wait, there’s more good news for you! I have recently joined a dynamic community of exceptional coaches known as the Career Winners Circle.

    Within this circle, we have specialists in various areas, including leadership, career development, and business growth. The Career Winners Circle provides clients like you with the infrastructure and resources to reignite your passion for Mondays!

    If you’re ready to join the 12% and embark on a journey of self-discovery, professional growth, and personal fulfillment, I invite you to reach out.

    Together, we can explore the possibilities!
