Career Clarity by Suzannah Scully
!walking – 3x
There is so much power in aligning your mind, body and spirit and one of the greatest
ways to do this is to go for a walk outdoors. Go for at least 20 minutes, listen to music and allow your mind to wander but not worry. It’s a great time to get back in touch with yourself. Be sure to do this alone as that is the greatest way to allow creativity to flow through you. A great time to do this is first thing in the morning when all of your defenses are down and the day is a fresh slate.
“It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” - Walt Disney

Get out a pen and paper and write yourself a letter as if it is ten years from now and everything in your life has gone better than you could ever imagine. Start by saying, “Dear Me, You won’t believe what’s happened and how amazing everything is…” Then go on to write about all of the incredible experiences and successes you have had in the last ten years both professionally and personally. Have fun here and don’t think “realistically”, think outside the box.
“Think Big and you’ll live big. You’ll live big in happiness. You’ll live big in accomplishment. Big in income. Big in friends. Big in respect… Start now, right now, to discover how to make your thinking make magic for you. Start out with this thought of the great philosopher Disraeli: ‘Life is too short to be little.’” - David J. Schwartz, The Magic of Thinking Big

Now that you have spent imagining, it’s time to learn. Immerse yourself in what you are most interested in. Take a class, watch a TED Talk, go to a speaking event, join a Meetup, spend time reading, listening to, researching and talking to people in that field. Soak it all in and view this as your time of research.
!writing – 1x
Pop over to wordpress.com or blogger.com and write one post. You don’t need to share it with anyone yet. Just write about something that interests you and that you’d ultimately love to share with others. Don’t spend too much time making it “just right”, the point is to just do something. Notice what you like or don’t like about the process. If you are struggling with finding a topic, write about something you found interesting during your research. Share your thoughts.
!creativeproject – 1x
Share your work/passion with others. Created something? Sell it on Etsy. Have great taste? Share your favorite images on Pinterest. If you wrote your blog, share it on Facebook or Twitter or simply email it to your friends.
“Ambition is the path to success, persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.” – William Eardley IV
!reachout – 1x
Offer to help a friend or coworker with something that you are interested in doing and getting experience at. Or is there an entrepreneur that you know that you think you could help in growing their business? Offer your help or services. Another great place to offer your services is to volunteer. Are there local organizations that could use what you are looking to do? Don’t wait for someone to give you the opportunity. Be persistent.
“If you want to feel connected to your own purpose, know this for certain: Your purpose will only be found in service to others, and in being connected to the something far greater than your mind/body/ego.” – Wayne Dyer
!gratitude – 5x
Before you go to bed, write down 3 things that you are most proud of in the day. In those last 5 minutes before bed, we seal thoughts into our subconscious and it affects the next day – make them good thoughts!
"Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough." - Oprah Winfrey
