200: 4 Steps to Transform Your Work and Life


Welcome to episode #200 of the Own Your Best Life Podcast. When people ask me how to actually live a life where they’re fulfilled, what they’re truly wanting to know is what changes do they need to make to create a life they love. How do you make personal and professional decisions that create fulfillment? You know that something is going to change, but how do you ensure that in your next chapter, you’re making changes that you don’t regret? In today’s podcast, I’m going to share 4 steps to transform your work and life.

Many times, people will wish that they could go back in time and make different decisions about the things they did for work or the choices they made. Time has a funny way of passing faster than we think and at some point we say to ourselves, let’s just be happy with what I have and get on with life.

This wish for things to have been different in the past as they say, “hindsight is 20/20”. In hindsight, you can see the choices you made that led to the life you have today. There’s more clarity for the past choices we’ve made and the consequences of those choices.

Yet, even if we look back and know what we would have done differently, the most important thing to know about this feeling is that it’s not a sign that everything has come to an end. It’s a sign that there’s something brewing ahead. You can still pivot your work and life. You have more experience and more wisdom than ever before. You’re not too old. You’re not past the point in which it makes sense. Even if you feel like you’re done with working hard or you’re just in a different stage in your life, you can still find a greater sense of purpose, joy, meaning or fulfillment in your everyday life.

Life expectancy has gone from living until you’re in your 30’s in the early 1900s to living until your 70’s. That’s only an average – which means that you likely still have decades ahead of you if you’re in your 30s, 40s, 50s or 60s listening to this. When you aren’t just counting down the days to retirement or to death, you’re focused on what you can still do, now – with the time you have. Otherwise, you’re just wishing for the day where you can stop working versus loving your work and having such passion and skills that you’d be fine continuing to work. You have so many more options and choices when you feel that time is actually on your side.

So many of the people that we respect and admire are those that have led a well-lived life. They feel that they didn’t leave things that they knew mattered to the wayside. If they had something that they wanted to do, they did it. They didn’t leave the music inside left unplayed. It might have been later in life when they found their calling or started to do the things that gave them meaning, but they did it. 

If you keep living as if you’re past your prime or that you’re at the end of your life, that’s the kind of life you will have. A life where you feel older than you want and at the end of your life, wishing that you were younger and more brave. You’ll keep saying to yourself that, “if only I were younger” or “I think it’s too late” and that is what will be true. The things we tell ourselves become our reality. We affirm them into existence.

That doesn’t have to be your path though. There are ways to pivot your work and life even now that leave you feeling more free and alive than ever before. These are the spiritual, high-performance strategies that I personally use and these are the same strategies that we would work on together when you start your coaching journey with me.

  1. Spirituality and Your Superpower Edge: Figuring out who you are, what motivates you and what drives you helps you understand yourself better. You know who you are inside and out. Regardless of the situation you’re in, when you know that you have a strong spiritual core, you feel like you have superpowers. You know your gifts and your life is a living, breathing example of miracles in action. You seem to overcome challenges, to live and to love, and to be someone who knows themselves well and is comfortable in their skin. You emanate and vibrate with a type of energy that is magnetic because it’s truthful, genuine and honest. You are thrilled to be alive and you have so much energy for what’s ahead because you know you’re using your gifts and having the impact you want to have in the world.
  2. Achievement and Your Personal Strategy Map: Know the multiple happy endings that your life can have and how they are connected to your passions and purpose, and you’ll always know what you’re doing and why. You will be able to release the drama of comparing yourself to other people because you are so deeply connected to your own path and the journey you’re on. You seem to outsiders to be one of those people who are so focused because they know who they are and what they’re doing in life. You see everything as interconnected and you find the purpose and meaning to your life and work. Opportunities will seem to come out of the woodwork for you. 
  3. Mind/Body Connection and Flow Activation Rituals: Establishing a connection between the mind and body will revolutionize the way you experience life. You’ll find that you have so much innate wisdom within you that you start to trust your decisions even more than you have before. You’ll find yourself an artist in your life and work becomes a joyful and interesting experience. Your flow activation rituals create the color of your tapestry of life and you’ll have more time back then you’ve ever experienced before. You’ll learn how to master time and instead of thinking that it’s never enough, you are able to be present and focused with the time you have. You breathe more easily, find more peace and you’re a joy to be around. 
  4. Harmony and Leadership: Leading yourself and others in this lifetime is a work of a lifetime. We stop wishing people were different, better and easier to handle. Instead, we find ourselves appreciating people as they are and we find relationships in our professional and personal lives blossoming. We develop the skills of influencing and communicating with people who are vastly different than we are. We know how to create the kind of world we want to live in within our teams, families and communities. We find ourselves living a congruent life where what we believe, what we know and what we do  and how we do it is fully aligned. People want to follow us, we become leaders without even trying, and we create leaders who excel and are willing to work through the hard times with us. We’re tapping into the power of a truly connected world and we seem to feel like life gets easier and we are more supported than ever before.

When you do these 4 things, you will find that your life changes in incredible ways. I’ve seen it for myself and my clients. Feeling as if you’re a changed person yet more yourself than ever before. Knowing how strong you truly are and how to design the life of time and financial freedom. 

New and different experiences are still waiting for you and you, no matter where you are in life, will have a choice in deciding whether or not you will find yourself in a life where you surpass even your own expectations.

The choice is this: You can keep thinking that you’re too late to pivot your work and life, or you can believe that if you’re still alive you still have an opportunity to do the things that you’ve always wanted to do. When you decide to go after your dreams and pivot your work and life to be even more in alignment with who you are and want to be, you’ll find there are more possibilities than ever before.
