Why you will fail to have a great career



There are two questions people frequently ask me…

Question #1:

“Lesley, how do I know if I’m on the right career path?”

And Question #2:

“What should I be doing to ensure I’m successful?”

A lot of times, I’ll answer by telling people to simply invert their question. In other words, “What are the things I shouldn’t be doing?”

And the things we shouldn’t be doing show up in our lives as “yellow alerts.” These are the advance warnings you get in the forms of tell-tale signs, gut instincts, or feelings that you are off course.

You know when you suddenly get a “bad feeling” about something or notice people acting differently around you? I encourage people to listen to those feelings. Lean into them and trust your instinct.

Another thing you should absolutely avoid at all costs is not believing it’s possible and not believing in yourself. This TED talk video by Larry Smith pulls no punches when he calls out the absurd excuses people invent when they fail to pursue their passions

I understand this is easier said than done. There is a lot of fear, limiting beliefs, and negative thinking that we must overcome. It’s human nature. In fact, our brains are designed to keep us comfortable, complacent, and to not take risks.

That’s why I have committed my life’s work to researching and studying how to overcome those obstacles and how to have a strong sense of belief in yourself. I work with people age 14 upwards and adults to really get the bottom of who they are and what they want to do which will enable them to get a job or career that will make them happy – interested?
