We’re at Day 28 of our 30-day Career Courage Challenge, and you are amazing! Please be sure to tell us your experiences with the challenge in email or in the Comments at the end of this article, or on Facebook and LinkedIn, too. I’ve been taking the challenges along with you–read my notes in each day’s Comments.
Career Courage Challenge, Day 28:
Map Out A Brave New Vision
YOUR CHALLENGE TODAY:
On Day 15, you got clear on what you wanted career courage for. Today, let’s take that a step deeper and map out our broader vision around those reasons.
A big vision. A brave vision.
In other words, what are the experiences, results, learnings, and opportunities that you want courage to help get you? What will it really look and feel like? What will you need to start doing? To stop?
Who do you need to be alongside you? What other support do you need–now and in the future?
Taking the time to get your vision in place will help you decide what to say yes to, and what to say no to, as you put your career courage to work going forward. Let’s paint the picture today.
If you’d like more courage in your career and life, there’s still time to join us for the Career Courage Challenge throughout June. Click here to sign up and get the challenges directly in your inbox. They’re free, fast, fun, and may give you just the boost to bring your superpowers to work.
Why a Career Courage Challenge?
Here at RedCapeRevolution.com, we’ve focused on three main things that we all need to have to soar in our careers (things we’ve learned through our research and conversations with you):
- Gaining Clarity: really seeing and understanding what’s unique and special about you; what your superpowers are and how you can bring them to work;
- Building Confidence: feeling strong and sure about who you are, and what you’re doing now and in the future, and;
- Taking Control: choosing to take action on the things you want and need in your work and life.
But in last year’s reader survey, I asked, “If you could take a superpill that would help you overcome your biggest challenge, what would that pill do?” here’s what you said:[blockquote]The pill would give me the words and courage to express to our executives how damaging these yo-yo initiatives are.
It would give me courage to ask for opportunities when I meet people.
Sometimes small setbacks throw me into doubt. The pill would make me believe in me first.[/blockquote]
So it sounds like there’s a new C emerging: courage. And I’m right there with you, because I’m seeking courage, too.
To play bigger. Serve you better. Impact more people like you. To make hard choices about who I want to be, where I want to be, how I want to spend more of my time and where I need to spend less.
That’s why I wanted to experiment with this free, 30-Day Career Courage Challenge. I’m going to push myself beyond my comfort zone, and I hope you’ll play along with me, too. I hope you’ll share your experiences in the Comments below, on Facebook or LinkedIn, or by email.
I can’t wait to grow my courage muscles with you.
