Planning is like watering your plants. It's crucial!

Uncategorized May 14, 2019

 

What does the word «planning» mean you?

I don’t know how important planning have been for you earlier in your life, and in your career. Only you know.

Some people like to write their plans down, others like to just have them in their minds.

We are all different and must do what suit us best! What works for one person doesn’t have to work for her (or his) neighbor.

 

Planning is like watering your plants

Planning is just as important as water is for your plants. It’s crucial. It’s «everything»…

 

 

You have to have your plans in order.

You don’t want to have any big surprises during this period, when you are about to claim your dream career, would you?

Okay… positive surprises are great, but if we don’t plan like a pro, it’s more of the negative surprises we will meet on our way.

And we don’t want those kind of surprises.

We need to plan in order...

It's «Easy Peasy» To Create A Dream Career

Uncategorized May 06, 2019

 

If creating your very own career is what you really want deep inside, it's «easy-peasy» to do so... I don't mean it's an easy fix, but if it's something you really, really , really want to do, then you will do what's needed.

That is what this blog post is all about. It's about the «stop dreaming and start doing» part of it.

 

Don't get me wrong. It's a lot of work, a lot of planning, and not least: a lot of adjusting. You need to learn what to do first, what to do next and so on. Of course. It's the same thing if you want to learn a foreign language, if you want to learn how to dance salsa or make a special dish. You have to learn. 

But when the feeling of staying where you are today is making you depressed and stressed out, it will be «easy-peasy» to do what you have to do in order to make the life you want to live. It really is. It's fun!

 

 

When you start to focus on your goal, you go all in. You know what the...

Every Rose Has It's Thorn

Uncategorized Apr 30, 2019

«Every rose has it's thorn. Like every night has it's dawn. Like every cowboy need his sad sad song...»

 

I don't know why, but I just startet to sing this beautiful song by Poison. I haven't heard it for years!
So I had to make a blog post about it. It's so true! We all have our very own thorns. 

None of us go through life without experiencing something sad. That is life. It's good, and it's bad. It has its light and it has its dark.

Have you ever thought that the bad things you have experienced can become something that you can help other people survive at? That you can help other people come back to life by using your way of dealing with your own «thorns»,?

You can. 

Because you have been the one walking in their shoes. You have experienced what other people now go through in their life. You can be someone they can identify with.

Maybe your purpose in life is helping other people who now experience their own trauma. And...

Why Building A Career Based On Your Life Purpose Is Crucial

Uncategorized Apr 16, 2019

 

We often want a new career because we don’t like where we are right now. We want to earn more money and have more freedom to do what we love.

Right?

But you will never be happier or feel more fulfilled and aligned with your values, if you don’t follow your life purpose.  

 

Let me tell you a story:

When I started out, I did what I was good at. What I knew. Which was leadership training and fire preventing. I earned a good deal of money on it.

But I didn’t follow my purpose. And what I did was not aligned with my values in life.

 So I started to procrastinate. I started being stressed out again, and I was on the same «train» I had been on earlier, working as a fire chief. I was going around in circles. 

 

 

What I figured out was this:

When you learn what your life purpose really is, you will go all in. You start to see the possibilities and not all the things that can go wrong.

You will not procrastinate. Trust me....

When you love what you do, you start loving yourself even more

Uncategorized Apr 09, 2019

Ohhh... Today has been so amazingly good! I really can't describe it well enough! You know, it's been one of those days when you feel one thing after another turns out even better than the thing before.

 

First, let me get one thing 100 percent clear. Like the phrase «loud and clear» that I would have said on my radio if I was still working in the fire department and I wanted those around me to understand that I heard them perfectly:

This blog post is NOT made to brag. It's not to make you feel bad by lifting myself up high.

NO!

First of all: I'm not that kind of person. Secondly: I just had to write this to you today. Right now, before making dinner. I know that some of you really really need to read this today.

You see, I have done what I know so many of you want to do: I did what I wanted to do in life. I followed my dreams, my «why», my purpose when I finally found it after being a totally stressed out and angry woman diagnosed with PTSD.

If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It. Or...?

Uncategorized Apr 02, 2019

I guess you have heard this phrase a few times before...

«If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It». It was Walt Disney himself that said those words, and he was the living proof it!

 

But, it's not like you just have to sit down, close your eyes, dream of what you want, and then *BOOM* you get it. Walt Disney didn't do that. He had a dream, a passion, and he went all in to make that dream come true.

It's the same thing with you and your dream. To make it come true, you have to do something... 

But, you can't just start off doing «something», not knowing what it is you really want to accomplish. What your goal really are. What you are here to do.

In that case you will only be going around in circles, not reaching your destination. Of course you will get something out of it. You will get results... But those results so often involve frustration and resignation.

 

Your Values

You have to define your values. If you do something that is not aligned with...

YES, YES AND YES

Uncategorized Mar 26, 2019

Don’t you just love positive headlines like this?

I do!

YES I DO!

 

Since I’m going to talk about something as positive as finding peace within yourself today, I got this positive and energetic feeling inside!

 

And with a positive feeling came a positive headline… A win-win situation!

Like attracts like, remember?

 

...Okay, let’s talk about today's topic.

About finding peace within yourself. About making a decision when it comes to your career, and not least: let’s talk about how your stress level will decrease when you finally make your decision.

 

Are you ready?

Let’s dive in!

 

...Think of yourself back then. When you had just turned 16. 

 

You knew there was a party next weekend, but you didn’t know if you got invited. That is something that was stressful, and a situation filled with a lot of different feelings.

Or you wanted to date a specific boy, but you didn’t...

Whatever makes you mad, step away from it!

Uncategorized Mar 19, 2019


But so often we don't. We stay. We stay right where we are. Even if we feel that we are being torn apart.

Why is that, you think?

 

Let me tell you:
It’s because the human mind is afraid of the unknown...

Even If we are in a job that drains us, we stay.

Not a smart thing to do. Of course not.
But like I said, it’s how the human mind works...

But what If...

...What If you learned what you need to learn?

...What If you knew that you can go the steps needed, without risking everything you have?

...What If you knew that you could scale, but in a safe way?

Would it be easier to find your life purpose then?

Yes... It would.

When you know that you have it covered. When you know that you are taking the right steps. Then you can lower your shoulders. Again: that’s how the human mind works.

I know that when you have found what you are here on this earth to accomplish, then you will go for it.


You will follow that path. It will be so much easier for you. You...

When everything you feel is stress, anxiety and anger…

Uncategorized Mar 12, 2019

I was like that. That was how I felt.

At one point, the 3 words that could describe me the best was:… Stress, Anxiety and Anger.

 

Not the most positive words, right?

 

And being stressed out, anxious and angry was NOT ME.  It was not how I used to be.

 

You see, from I was a little girl I had always been the opposite. I had been a happy girl, the kind of girl (and later on the kind of woman) who saw my glass as half full. Not someone who saw her glass as half empty.

 

 

What happened? It’s a long story, so let me just give you the short version. 

It involved me getting PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), having a stressful work environment for years, before I finally «got my life back».

 

With getting back on track, I also traded my high stress level, my anxiety and anger, with joy and happiness.

You might think it sounds a bit «fluffy», but that was what it was. What it was for me.

 

 

STOP!...
