Ask Yourself the BIG Questions
Seems a bit daunting. A powerful life.
Especially when you feel like you are waking up most mornings foggy, without a sense of ambition or fever for some aspect of your life, any aspect.
Perhaps routine or a sense of powerlessness over your life circumstances has you longing for a different way of living.
We all start somewhere, so first start by accepting the truth about where you are.
By truth I mean, don't over dramatize your environment, circumstances or way of being.
Just step back and take on a new perspective of how you want to be seen by others and ask these questions to begin creating your new powerful life and sense of self to live from.
Taking time to get clarity of yourself and direction is the work. No way around it.
If you want YOUR version of a powerful life, sit and do the work to ask and answer these questions now
"Change and transformation only happen in this moment.
1.) What kind of life is my best self living? (where am I?, who is in my life?, what am I doing?, who am I being?)
2.) What do people around me, witnessing my best self have to say about me?
3.) What legacy am I leaving on this planet? Am I leaving a positive footprint?
4.) At my funeral, what are people saying about who I was and what I stood for?
5.) Who do I look up to? What qualities in them do I admire?
From answering these questions you will have derived a some values and qualities that you admire and can choose as you build your powerful life.
What are the top 3 qualities that you want to grow and that you will refer to daily?
When you are not feeling powerful in your life, ask yourself this question.
What would a 1.) 2.) 3.) do in this situation?
(insert your 3 top qualities here)
Your brain is wired to answer the question. It's up to you to ask the question and then take action on the answers.

Get noticed in a crowd of applicants
You've been "downsized", "retrenched", "let go" or looking for a new job simply because you want to change locations or careers.
Perhaps you're a new graduate or a parent who is heading back to work. You may even be a retiree looking to get back into something that gives you a feeling of purpose again.
Whatever your particular situation, you can bet, you will be up against many other applicants vying for the same position.
It is super important in today's times of competition and technology to really make an effort and get a handle on standing out in a crowd.
Today it is important that you invest in yourself in order to put your best image forward to win in all areas of the job search.
I am offering a link here for you to access a PDF I made for the job seeker who is looking to get a leg up on the competition.
Select this box to gain access to view the PDF.
It has become more evident to me as a business relationship trainer and virtual team coach who facilitates assessments for organizations big and small, that the new applicant must do more than make a fancy looking resume. (nothing against fancy resumes)
If you are lucky enough to have your resume pass through the ATS (application tracking system) and make it through to the other side for a real person to review, you will need more assets then your packaged wording on paper, you'll need to interview well.
Most importantly, you will need to bring a value add to the organization at the interview.
What will you bring?
How can you help the company choose you?
I got to thinking about how to better help the applicant from working with HR staff with their recruiting assessments.
Why should this not be in the hands of job seekers I thought. How valuable would this be for applicants to be better armed and stand out in a truly magnificent way. Thereby assisting company's in choosing a candidate who invests in themselves and offers greater detail about themselves as to their leadership ability, teamwork ability and personal strengths and communication styles.
LUMINA Spark offers the applicant the ability to create strong relevant language inside your resume and gain communication style knowledge of themselves and how to apply that knowledge to speed read others, such as interviewers to improve the communication level within the hiring conversation.
There are so many benefits to using an assessment tool to arm yourself with all the details you would need to engage in an interview.
Why not offer a copy of your LUMINA Spark portrait to the interviewee for review, as your value add?
Talk about standing out!
If you are needing more ways to stand out, do have a look at the PDF mentioned above and start investing in your self, which inevitably is your future too!
As always, I'm here to help in anyway I can
