"How to Find Your Calling...and LIVE It" with Guy Hatcher

How did you get to where you are today in your career, business, personal relationships? Was it a result of careful planning? Did you sit down and plan, “This is where I want to be 5 years from now, 10 years from now, or at the end of my career.” Did you take steps to get there or did you let life happen? And maybe you feel trapped because you have to pay the bills?  Guy Hatcher shows us how to begin with the end in mind as we find our calling in life.

What gives you a deep sense of satisfaction at work? Is it the insightful financial analysis, the perfect design for a new building, the client who says “you’re the best,” or the employee who achieves her goals.

We all have something that gives us that sense of, “YES, I DID IT!” When we spend time doing something meaningful to us we bring our whole selves to that moment. Indeed, that is what passion is – being in the moment fully focused on what is at hand.

All of us have moments of defeat, fear, hesitation, or failure. Even people who are successful in the eyes of the world have these moments.  A shot of optimism is like a coach telling you there is only one more lap, or that the tournament is best 3 out of 5, or that you only have two strikes instead of three.

A shot of optimism gives us an energy and outlook boost to keep on going. So take a shot, regain your composure and keep on truckin’.

Have you ever walked into a spider’s web? You can feel it, but you can’t see it. It’s annoying, slows you down and it’s hard to get free.

We all have habits, beliefs, and behaviors that slow us down, that are annoying and that are hard to cast off. The more we can “see” what’s holding us back, the easier it is to escape!

We ALL have them, so don’t waste time being embarrassed. Claim it and move on. The world is waiting for you to shine!

Have you ever said this about your work or about organization, “It’s OK but I’m not loving it? Too many people are putting their energy and talent into something they don’t love. It’s time to stop and explore. What would it take for you to love what you do? Rethink re-frame, refine, rework, renegotiate. All of those are options to consider before your resign or retire!

 

You may be surprised at the possibilities!
