  • why a personality assessment can’t create self-awareness

    You are oriented to life differently than some and the same as others. No, it’s not an overly insightful statement, but in moments you do forget.

  • 3 steps for reigning in that inner critic

    It lives with you and it won’t move out. No matter how many times you send it packing. Ignore it. Avoid it. Want it to just go away. Sometimes (if you are very, very lucky) it goes on vacation (for some unknown reason), but you’re never sure when it’s going to return. But return it […]

  • credentials for career bliss come from real life (an untold story)

    It feels like a lifetime ago now, but once upon a time I was once in a relationship with someone that I was terrified of. Career bliss was a dream, a fantasy, a fairy tale.

  • your personality test can’t get you career bliss (here’s why not)

    Have you got career bliss yet from your personality test (or as I like to call it, your ego test) result? Likely not.

  • do you have a ‘poo poo’ person in your life?

    You know what you want to create in your life. You know that if you headed in a particular direction that you’d be happy. You even have supporters, encouragers and people imagining your success.

  • claim your career bliss: interview with adam king

  • claim your career bliss: interview with alex franzen

    “A great sense of bliss, and certainty and serenity comes from knowing who you are … and not just knowing, but having the words to convey it … If you can’t answer the question: ‘So, what do you do?’ Then [knowing who you are] is not really worth much … It’s the ownership of the […]
