No judgment for anyone that doesn't want to pursue their passion or dreams.
It can be an absolute grind, full of failure, full of uncertainty, full of disappointment and unfilled expectations.
But it can also be the greatest feeling in the world and give you a life full of purpose and unlimited energy!
There will be external things that become obstacles that get in the way, and if you are focused and determined, you will find away around or through them!
But if you choose the path of chasing your passions, don't the inevitable internal obstacles stop you!
1 - The limiting beliefs that lie in your subconscious mind: self doubt, imposter syndrome, self image/worth; the beliefs that you have acquired through life that hold you back. Many of them placed on you by others or by society.
2 - The 'reasons': the excuses, the justifications, the stories that you consciously create to avoid failure and the inevitable success that you could have if you find a way!
Here's the thing...
I had it pretty good in my 20’s until I blew it all up
Up until high school, I had always thought I would live an average life, I clearly remember walking to school one day with a somber thought of me ‘just getting by’ through life, hating my job because it was all I could get because I didn’t want to go to college and ‘do what they say’ to be successful.
On this episode of Mindset Hackers, I chat with Former Wall Street Lawyer, now an Executive Coach Hana Dhanji and we talk about the trappings of 'chasing success', the dopamine treadmill, and how to get off.
So many of us high performers try to control outcomes yet we miss out on the signs that the Universe is leaving right in front of us. We are always in a constant state of evolution and therefore what we know or can see at any given point, doesn't always give us the answers we need, but we need to trust that it will come into focus.
Hana has also been on the treadmill of success in her own path and she shares her backstory with us of chasing to become a Wall Street Lawyer and work in some of the biggest cities such as New York and Dubai, but realized that she was out of alignment.
