What do you want to be when you grow up?

What is your passion?

What does your dream life look like?

Why aren’t you doing that?

For the past six years I have worked full-time advising college students. I helped them to find their dream career, but never questioned my own.

I was happy enough, but it felt like I was missing something.

Back in the spring of 2015 I had a conversation with a friend at work, we were discussing what our dream jobs would be and why we weren’t pursuing them.

As a trained career specialist I knew the importance of taking a look back to your childhood dreams, interests and passions. One of my most prevalent childhood career dreams was to be a public speaker. I envisioned myself traveling the country motivating people with my words.

Contrary to what most people who know me think, I’m actually an introvert, so this, paired with a lack of inspirational words, seemed like quite an ill-suited career goal.  The concept made sense, but the avenue wasn’t right.

I was recently listening to a podcast, The Chalene Show by Chalene Johnson, where she was talking about power phrases. Side note, she is a great motivator and always has great topics between her two podcasts, The Chalene Show and Build Your Tribe.

I saw the episode title and it got my attention. Embarking on this new blogging business adventure I thought that was exactly what I needed, a power phrase. Halfway through the episode I was contemplating “stealing” the power phrase of the women in the story Chalene was sharing. I couldn’t think of a better one and hers was great, but then it hit me.

I already had a power phrase, and didn’t even realize it.Read More »Got Power? What’s your mantra?
