MARRIED TO YOUR CAREER AND DIVORCED FROM YOUR TRUE SELF?
Reclaim Your Sense of Self And Fall In Love With Work - And Life - All Over Again
YOUR CAREER IS A WORK OF HEART
You’re a discerning professional who’s delivered consistent results and excellent service to all your stakeholders. You’re competent, accomplished and wholly committed to your success and your career.
You may even have discovered your ‘meraki’, the lyrical Greek term that translates to “artistry; the soul, creativity or love you put into something; the essence of yourself that you put into your work”.
You’re. In. The. Zone.
But what happens when you’ve been so committed to your career that you’ve given too much of yourself to work and lost your Sense of Self – and your ‘meraki’ – along the way?
You confuse having a career with having a life.
A term that has become synonymous with workplaces in recent years is burnout, and this occurs when passionate, committed people like you become deeply disillusioned with a job or career from which they previously derived much of their identity and meaning.
Yup, it hits hard, doesn’t it? Realising that you don’t love your job any more, that you’ve been putting everyone else’s needs ahead of your own (while working yourself to the bone), sending emails while on holiday and neglecting your personal relationships.
That was ME.
At the time, I couldn’t see the damage I was doing, had little to no boundaries on how others used my time and found myself ‘trying to do it all’, all the time.
Sound familiar? Yeah, it sucks.
*Now is the time to reconnect your Heart back to your Self.
*Now is the time for YOU to listen to YOU.
*Because if not now, when?
And if that resonates, perhaps you can also identify with the following?
- You feel there is a strong need to prove yourself
- You keep working harder to and harder to achieve this
- You begin to neglect your own needs more
- You seesaw between apathy and attentiveness
- What used to feel inspiring now feels tedious
- You become confused about priorities
- Anxiety looms when you need to make decisions
- You battle to sleep properly
- You snap at your family and berate your colleagues
- You feel low on energy and lacklustre about your health
- You’re generally cynical about life, work and relationships
As a result, you’re overwhelmed when faced with simple tasks, or making silly mistakes on things that normally aren’t tricky at all.
Exhaustion (whether physical, emotional or cognitive fatigue), cynicism and inefficiency are warning signs of issues including burnout, disruption and stress.
And let’s be clear here: if the world was taxing on us before 2020, it can easily be considered hyper-stressful now.
The most profound relationship you will ever have is the one with yourself.
So tell me, discerning professional, do you understand why you’re experiencing these issues? Have you been ignoring the signs and finding yourself prone to ongoing ‘little’ illnesses? Are you sabotaging yourself somehow?
Have you even considered why your productivity fluctuates so much and yet you can’t seem to put your finger on the source of it?
Wouldn’t you like to have more energy and feel that wonderful sense of being emerge so that you can laugh and feel contented again? Feel inspired, joyful and free?
It’s time to honour the powerful wisdom within you and create a new connection with yourself.
My name is Lee Marinaki and I help individuals who’ve lost themselves in their careers, to re-energise their Sense of Self and rejuvenate body, mind and soul.
WORDS CREATE WORLDS
But it’s not just our words that create our worlds, it’s the FEELING behind them too.
And sometimes our feelings can sabotage what we really want.
Since 2020, we’ve had to confront a multitude of choices regarding our careers, priorities, health and lives.
Perhaps you’ve been thinking about a career change, or wanting to go for that promotion? Perhaps you’re a leader who wants to create psychologically safe workspaces for your team, or you’ve decided to develop more effective communication skills for a new digital world, or upgrade your CV in line with new hiring practices. Whatever it is, you’re being called on to pivot your thinking, become waaaay more agile and still deliver the goods.
And while you don’t want to give up on yourself, you don’t quite know how to move forwards effectively now, right?
That’s because it’s time to ‘call time’ on all the old ways of thinking. You need to throw your arms open to a different way of being by exploring new ways of engaging with yourself and the world. The old paradigms no longer serve you.
Time to stop sabotaging yourself, and start serving yourself instead.
Your stories manifest themselves in who you are and how you show up in the world.
Simply put, you ARE your choices.
And I can help you!
With 20+ years of experience in corporate HR across a variety of industry sectors, I understand how necessary it is for business to employ engaged, solutions-focused, high-performing team members who are agile, diligent and competent.
I also appreciate what it’s like to perform at your peak, ‘give your all’ to your job, and secretly feel quite lost while doing so.
I know because I was there.
I also know it doesn’t have to be like this, and how you can ease your way out of that burnt out, depleted feeling to become so much better.
