Your Identity

Career Help Burlington Start with Small

Are you feeling like you just never seem to get to where you want to be in your career? Does it seem like everyone else is whipping past you and it seems so much easier for them? Maybe you keep picking the wrong job, or it seems like no one wants to hire you at all, and you can’t figure out what to change to make things better. Sometimes it seems like you’re making headway – you get an interview for an awesome opportunity, you come up with a solid business plan, you decide to ask for a raise – but soon enough you’re right back to the same place feeling stuck. This series of “unsolvable” problems quickly starts to feel like much more than just problems. They start to feel like part of you. An unavoidable part of your life that you've creates a whole story around and the problem feels very real and like a part of you. You worry incessantly about this problem, and develop an even deeper belief that you won’t ever be able to solve it. It becomes like a third arm or maybe a really heavy purse. It becomes your IDENTITY. “I hate my job but I can’t leave” or “my boss hates me and will probably fire me any day now”, or “nobody else would ever hire me”, or “I’m too old to do what I would enjoy more at this point, better stick it out”, “I could never make a living doing something I enjoy”. When you’ve reached that point of giving up, when you have accepted a problem you can’t solve as your fate in this life and believe you’ve been defeated… It’s time to get some help. In fact, it’s long overdue. Because when your problem has become your identity, you’re never going to solve it alone. You won’t see where you’re stuck, because you just believe everything you’re telling yourself about these problems can’t be solved. If you’ve been trying to solve your problem for EVER, and it’s still not solved – that is unlikely to change unless you try something drastically different.

If I had one wish for you it would be that you could see how much your brain is hallucinating your experiences based on thoughts you don’t even know you have about things. Thoughts that you think are facts, objective reality. But they aren’t. They’re nonsense.

It’s the same way our eyes don’t see. Did you know that? The brain sees. The eye just transmits. So, what we see isn’t only determined by what comes through the eyes. What we see is affected by our memories, our feelings, and by what we’ve seen before. Please stop letting your brain play tricks on you. If you realized so much of what’s keeping you stuck is optional and there was a simple process for changing this, you’d sign up for a call with me immediately. Well, it’s your lucky day.

Have you heard that quote from Henry Ford? He said: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said 'faster horses.'” I’m telling you, you don’t know what’s possible when you’re just basing everything on what’s happened in your life so far.

You have to learn how to solve problems in a different way. You need to use your brain in a different way-by thinking differently. Not by continuing to think the same way.

I get it, this seems weird. Maybe you can’t come up with things you’d want to think that might be helpful—maybe that’s very hard to even imagine or believe.

No problem, leave it to me. This is what I do. Just call me Henry (naw, that would be weird). Just bring me your brain and I’ll take it from there. This is how I help. We'll re-imagine your career, so that you don’t have to keep feeling terrible about the one you have.

Or, would you prefer to stay where you are, feeling the same way?

Because nothing will change until you do.
