Day in and day out you spend your time at a job that's not necessarily bad, but doesn't exactly leave you feeling fulfilled.
Maybe it used to, or maybe that's something you've never felt in your job.
But now, you're craving more...
You want to know that you're doing something with your life that feels meaningful. You want your time on this planet to matter.
You are craving a sense of fulfillment and purpose, but wondering how to achieve that when you're in a job that is anything but...
What to do?
You have 2 options
OPTION 1: FIND A NEW JOB OR CAREER
- It's the company: if you love what you do, but the company (or boss) is making you miserable, finding a new job may be the answer.
- It's the industry: if the industry you're working in isn't something you love, then it may mean redefining yourself and changing careers.
But, let's face it...not everyone can just pick up and change jobs or careers. If that's you, then Option 2, may be your best bet...
OPTION 2: FIND YOUR PASSIONS OUTSIDE OF YOUR JOB
When you're in a job that doesn't fulfill you and you can't leave it for whatever reason, you have to look for your fulfillment outside of your job.
Believe it or not, filling your non-work hours with things you're feel passionate about will likely provide you with what you're craving. This is in turn will make your day job a lot more bearable.
Fulfillment and passion do not have to come from a job that pays you!
taking the first step
If the answer for you is to find a new job or embark on a new career, then it's time to dust off the resume and practice your winning smile and interview skills!
If finding your passions and fulfillment outside your job is more your path, then you have to start by getting to know the real you.
Ask yourself these questions:
- What do I love to do so much that I lose track of time when I'm doing it?
- Where would I like to make a difference in the world?
- What would I do with my time if money was not an object?
These types of questions will help you get clear on things you can do in your spare time to fill up your tank and feel that you are doing something meaningful with your life.
It's scary to take that first step! But, when you start living your life according to who you are and what you crave, you'll find freedom in your life.

I’m on a mission to inspire and help women just like you create the life they crave.
I understand those feelings because I’ve felt them myself! I totally get wanting more when it appears you have it all and then feeling guilty about it. While in my late 30s, I decided to chart a different course for my life...one that was fulfilling, adventurous, and according to my rules.
Now, I’m a certified professional coach that works with women in the late 30s and 40s to design a life that fulfills them, allows them to experience pure joy, and limits regrets later in life.
To do that, I don’t want you to stay quiet any longer. I want to hear what you are thinking, feeling, worrying about, dreaming about, etc.
