What path do you need to chart?

It’s that time of the year.

We have hit the halfway mark.

Questions to ask #SELF are:
  • How am I doing?
  • Am I still on track?
  • Do I need to re-evaluate ?
  • What is working?…..what isn’t?
  • What can I #START, #STOP or #CONTINUE doing?

As I was self calibrating last week, I remembered how #rejection almost crippled me.

To be precise, rejection in my places of work.

There were 2 major instances of rejection that threw me off my flow.

– I felt inadequate

– I felt fake

– I felt depressed

– I felt paralysed

– I felt gutted

In fact the imposter syndrome that lay somewhere deep within me came to the fore.

Can you relate to this?

You see my entire #focus was so much on the rejection, that I did not honour the:



*the successes

*the impact I had on my direct reports.

Things that were apparent and clear to everyone, were in no way in my line of vision.

I directed my #energy towards the rejection and had my own pity party.

In hindsight, the rejection was definitely a blessing in disguise. It gave me a good wake up call, and the rest as they say is history.

Though it was a tough journey, ( and #impostersyndrome is still a big work in progress for me) once I acknowledged the learnings, I was able to see the growth, the networks, the successes and so on, with such #clarity.

I have charted out my own path, bruises and all I have my scars for all to see.

What path do you need to chart?

I have been there and I can help you with the clarity you need.
