I built the multi six figure corporate career of my dreams while battling a non-stop inner critic that stole the joy from my life.
I achieved my goals, but every success came at a price.
I loved what I did but my inner talk track rarely let me enjoy it because it insisted that nothing I did was enough.
It wasn't perfect enough.
It wasn't brilliant enough.
It wasn't good enough.
And therefore, neither was I.
I used to let self-doubt and my super loud, ever present and incredibly annoying Inner Critic suck the life out of me. Now I don't.

It's never too late to do something new.
Learning is living.
Your thoughts drive your results.
Many of our circumstances are driven by the actions or decisions of others, but we have the ability to influence the outcome by directing our thoughts, feelings and actions so we get the result we want. It's a choice.
The judgments of others are always about them.
You never fail. You test & learn.
Your dreams were placed inside for a reason. Go after them.
Now is always the right time to start.
Anything is possible.
What I believe...
I began to believe those negative internal voices.
So I discounted my successes.
And beat myself up mercilessly for my failures, whether real or imagined.
Throw in a bad reorg here or a challenging boss there and it only made things worse.
Then I learned an approach that changed everything.
And everything in my career and life changed for the better.
I began to appreciate me, in all my work-in-progress imperfection.
I embraced my past successes and failures, confident that all of it strengthened me.
And prepared me for what is to come.
Most importantly, I connected to what I truly want (vs. what I thought I should want) and I pursued it.
Don't let self doubt or over thinking rob you of the career you're dreaming of.
You don't have to settle for less than you want or deserve, though our brain will sometime tell us that.
I learned how to get my Inner Critic out of my way so I live my career on my terms.
And it's amazing.
I can show you how to do the same.
The career you want comes down to 3 simple but very profound things.
Things that YOU alone can control. And that's the good news. These are things you can start working on right now. These things changed everything for me. And they'll do the same for you.
