We all human beings have a passion for being a service to others with our competencies and expertise. The more we feel confident about ourselves and our unique talents, the more we will grow in our careers no matter where we are currently in our careers. We can serve

others in the extent we respect, accept and strive for being the best version ourselves and therefore, personal development has a direct impact on your career, business and finances as well.

It’s very essential to give ourselves time and care to get to know ourselves, the things that make us excited, our values, the things that matter to us, our unique gift(s) we were born with, and foremost, why we are on this beautiful planet, the Earth. Everything we experienced in our career, the promotions, failures, the learnings, praises, everything mirrors how we feel inside.

The more we are aware of our shadow and light and love ourselves anyway, our career will exponentially grow and people around us will notice the energetic shift, the inner work we are committed to unleashing our full potential in life and in whatever we choose to do in order to contribute to the development of this planet.

We all have a tendency to hide ourselves and think whatever we experienced only happened to us because we think we are lacking e.g. skills, education, degree, money etc. In fact, everything in life happened for us to grow and take the next leap in our life and career.

Having someone beside you who has already gone the path you are seeking to create will make a big difference in your career and that’s what a mentor’s intention is to guide you to look into your life and your career from a different angle.

The question “Do we allow us to get all the support and help we need to take the leap”?

There is an obvious difference between doing a job because you have to, and you choose to be on a mission to accomplish something that is aligned with your values and who you are at the core. Everything we desire in our life and career is to take the courage to decide what our next step will be in our life and career. Would you like to stay in your comfort zone and continue what you are used to with comfort and leave your comfort zone and explore what it is that you can co-create with the universe and let the universe express itself through your unique gifts and story.

I hope you chose the latter :)
