054: How Successful People Think (and stick to their goals).
You set a goal because you dream about being successful.It’s the time of year when we erase all the failures of the past and start with a clean slate. We set ourselves a new goal and start afresh. And then what? Most people will quit on their goals in the first month.So what’s the difference between goal dreamers and goal achievers? A big thing is not underestimating the work that needs to be done. If you want to be successful it takes focus and commitment. And a big part of that is doing the hard work of managing your brain throughout the process.To make it a little easier on you, I want to share the main reason goal dreamers fail on their goals so you can be aware of those pitfalls. But the most important tool that goal achievers have is their attitude. What makes them successful is how they think about their goal, and how those thoughts drive the actions they need to take. In this episode, I share the top 4 thoughts that successful people think so that they stick to their goals until they achieve them.

052: Career Impotence (aka I don't know what to do next)
I want to talk about another little terminology I came up with… Career Impotence! It’s a little provocative… I know. But sometimes you need a little shock to see what’s happening right in front of you.I want to really highlight the drama that people have when they experience career impotence because a ton of people have it and oftentimes, the people who have it think it’s no big deal.Impotence is when you’re unable to take effective action. And career impotence is when you’re unable to take effective action in your career.It’s when we stay stuck in indecision and I don’t know. I don’t know what I want. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know the right next move… etc., etc.So today, we’re going to talk about the dangers of career impotence, how it happens, and of course, what you can do to get your mojo back…. so to speak … So if you’re stuck in uncertainty and confusion about your career, then this episode is for you.

051: Is it time to change careers?
A situation that I’m presented with all time is “I think I want to change careers”. Usually, people struggle with that back and forth for a while. And if that’s you, then you absolutely need to listen to this episode.Because it’s a good question. How DO you know if it’s time to change careers? How do you know it’s not just a phase or a quick or easy way out of a bad situation? And let’s be honest. There’s nothing quick or easy about changing careers. So you’d better be sure.Here’s what I DON’T recommend you do.I don’t recommend you jump at the first neat idea.I don’t recommend quitting and figuring it out later.And I don’t recommend making any sudden moves if you’re feeling fed-up, exhausted and angry.I’m not saying you can’t figure it out, but you’re making your path to success much more difficult than it needs to be.Instead, I recommend doing the work in this episode to help you make an informed and pragmatic decision.WARNING… what I’m going to suggest you do isn’t sexy or a quick fix. This work is going to take some effort from you. But I’m telling you if you put this effort in upfront, you’ll have a much easier time in the back end.And by the way - if you’re looking for a sexy quick fix to change careers, then that’s definitely a sign that you want a change for the wrong reasons.

050: The Formula for Career Success
I want to offer you a simple formula for career success. You’re going to bring it down to the numbers today.Oftentimes, when you’re going after your career success, it’s tougher than you thought it’d be. Your brain is resistant to doing the things you know you should do (see Success Intolerance). And so, if it’s tough, it’s because YOU are making it tougher than it needs to be. All the stress, fear and discomfort are coming from you, whether you know it or not. You have thoughts that are creating all the negative emotions and slowing down your traction towards career success.You’re getting in your own way with all the drama.And the only way to get out of your own way is to get your head under control and to stop focusing on all the obstacles and negativity.That’s why mindset management and coaching are the best investment you could ever make. I wish I’d done it years ago.But what should you do instead of thinking unproductive thoughts that drive negative emotions? You might think it’s thinking of productive thoughts that drive positive emotions.But not necessarily.The emotions you need to reach your goals do not necessarily require you to move from demotivated and scared to motivated and confident.Those are great emotions, but honestly, I think they’re small potatoes to the emotion I’m recommending you focus on. And I’ll bet you’ll never guess. In this episode I’m going to give you my favourite emotion for helping get maximum traction in your career success and give you my mathematical equation to help get there.

049: Success Intolerance aka Self-Sabotage at Work
One of the big mindset challenges that I’ve been meaning to talk about, and comes up all the time is something I call SUCCESS INTOLERANCE.This is a term I made up. You probably know it as Self-Sabotage. But I like success intolerance because it more perfectly describes what is actually happening in your brain. Self-sabotage is the action that you take. But success intolerance is what happens in your brain that drives the actions that you would consider as self-sabotage. So success intolerance is more causal. And self-sabotage is the symptom of success intolerance. Success Intolerance is when your brain tries to avoid the discomfort of going after the success you want by feeding you unproductive thoughts that stop you from taking the action necessary to achieve growth.In this episode we’ll define success intolerance, share how to recognize it at work and ultimately deal with it.Check out the links and shownotes at thecareerreset.com/49

048: Drama Dependency
In this episode, we’re talking about something I call drama dependency. I made up this terminology, but it’s based on real cognitive-behavioural principles. I love the way it sounds … drama dependency… it sounds so dramatic just saying it. So meta. That’s why it’s so perfect.It’s exactly as it sounds - we get dependent on our own drama. We get unconsciously dependent on something at work being a problem so that we can avoid a bigger problem (usually of our own making). And you know this is a real thing because you know those people who are like that. Everything is an issue. Nothing can be solved. Or they’ve been complaining about the same thing for years and don’t do anything about it.You probably have someone like that on your team. We totally notice it in other people… but as always, you completely miss when you’re doing it. So let’s explore if you are creating and depending on your own drama. We’re going to talk about why we get drama dependent, how to recognize the signs, and how to start practicing being drama free.

047: The Perfectionist Myth
This episode is for both the perfectionists who know they’re perfectionists and the folks who don’t know they’re perfectionists.So it’s basically for all human beings. Because perfectionism shows up in so many ways. This isn’t just for those people who try to make their work perfect or get upset when there’s a hair out of place. It’s for anyone who’s has a goal that they just can’t seem to achieve. It’s for anyone who let’s fear of failure stop them from taking action.If that’s you, you may be dealing with the perfectionist myth without even knowing about it, and it could be getting in the way of your career potential.

046: The Difference Between Confidence and Self-Confidence
Did you know there was a difference between confidence and self-confidence? Probably not. I didn’t for years. I used the terms interchangeably and just decided that I didn’t have enough of either.Sound familiar?And even if there is a difference, is it even worth noticing. Um… ya.For a couple reasons. First of all. Self-Confidence is the key to growth. If you want to do things you’ve never done before and achieve things you’ve never achieved before, understanding how to generate self-confidence will be a valuable tool.Second. You’re going to realize you’re more confident than you give yourself credit for. And that’s a game-changer too. Because even though confidence may not be a growth emotion (yes, you read that right), it’s still something that creates a lot of positive energy so you can do your best work.We’re also going to cover how self-confidence turns into arrogance. Spoiler alert - it doesn’t. Truly self-confident people are never arrogant. But we will be talking about what creates arrogance and what it looks like (just in case you’re doing it without knowing you are).And finally, for those drivers out there who want to work on their self-confidence, I’ll share three indicators of self-confidence that you can practice to dial up your speed of success.

045: Why Imposter Syndrome is a Lie
Imposter syndrome is a lie. I’m not trying to say you’re not suffering from it. All I’m saying is your brain is serving up a lie that you’re believing, and thus creating a bunch of optional drama that doesn’t need to be there.Whaaa?Most people “suffer” from Imposter Syndrome in their career, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.In this episode I’m going to show you why Imposter Syndrome doesn’t have to be a problem at all. In fact, it could just be a sign that your brain is working perfectly.I’ll show you how you can reposition Imposter Syndrome as a sign of your success. No more suffering. No more thinking something is wrong with you. Only signs that we are on the right track.Here’s to Imposter Syndrome being a sign of success!

044: Serious Goal Setting
What is serious goal setting in the context of your career? How often do you do it?Most people don’t. They have what I would call a “regular goal”. It’s more like a dream; “I want to be (this title)”, or “I want to make (this much money)”, or “I’d like to work abroad one day”. And that’s as far as they go. And if the dream becomes a reality, it’s mostly luck. Or it takes way longer than it needs to. You’re leaving your success on the table.Serious goal setting is about taking your goals seriously. In this episode, I’m talking about what you can do to take your goal way more seriously and make it happen faster. We cover the three steps to setting a serious goal.Here’s what we cover;Why most goals don’t happen.The reason most people don’t take goal setting seriously.The impact of career goals on your lifeThree steps to serious goal settingIf you’re setting a goal because you want to feel something, it won’t work.Get the links in the show notes @ thecareerreset.com/44

040: Create A Track Record of Achievement
Who struggles with self-confidence? I do. And so do most people I know. We focus on what’s missing in our performance. In our abilities. And in ourselves.That’s because our brain is wired to focus on what’s missing. It’s a primitive instinct that alerts us to possible danger. It was useful back in the day.But in today’s world, it’s simply an instinct that makes us focus on why we’re not worthy and eats away at our self-confidence.For most of my life, I have operated this way. I’ve looked for what’s missing in my abilities.I told myself that focusing on ‘what’s missing’ and where I could be better, smarter, faster, stronger, thinner, etc, etc., was what was pushing me forward.But that is a thought error.Focusing on what’s missing in my performance is not a driver of achievements. It’s an inhibitor.If you want to achieve great things, you must believe in yourself ahead of time.But how?How do you believe in your ability to do something if you’ve never done it before?One way is to create a track record of achievements. Demonstrate to yourself how far you’ve come, and your ability to go further. To achieve great things.In this episode, I’ll share how to create a track record of achievements that can help build your self-confidence and train your brain to always focus on what’s working.

Today I want to talk about my unintentional, yet racist behaviour. I want to have a conversation with you about it in the hopes that something I share about myself my inspire you or help you deal with the current conversation.And the current conversation is around systemic racism. It was sparked by the murder of a black man at the hands of people in power. And that’s not ok.And it’s also raised other issues that are not ok. Like the way white people, including myself, have continuously turned a blind eye to what’s happening around us.In today’s episode, I want to be open and vulnerable about what I’ve learned about my own racist behaviour. I’ll talk about how I opened my eyes to it, how I will continue to learn, and what I’ve started doing about it.This is not an episode about career. It’s more of an episode about relationships. The relationship we have with ourselves, and with our fellow human beings.I want to be part of a solution. And the way I can do that is sharing what I’ve learned about myself so far.I welcome your comments and ideas at thecareerreset.com/36. Let’s continue the conversation.
