Friends, I made a mistake.

I launched a course called the Month of Courage and a few weeks after, I didn’t feel good about it.

Sometimes I set the date and that helps me to get my butt in gear to produce. But this time, that didn’t happen. This time, when I thought about working on the course, it felt like a heavy burden. This time, it was bad.

So I thought and wrote about it. The problem, I’ve realized, is that the topic is too vague. Courage needs to be applied to something. What was the problem my course was trying to solve? I couldn’t work on it because I didn’t know what the workshop was really about or who it was for.

So I have cancelled the event. I apologize if you got the invite and were interested. I want to produce high quality products that inspire me and, subsequently, inspire you and this course wasn’t going to be that. It is better for both of us that it is cancelled.

Since I made the decision, I’ve felt more free and working on new ideas has felt light and spacious. One topic I am exploring is Sacred Career Design. This takes courage out of the abstract and applies it to a challenge many of us face.

And as I brainstorm and research – I am getting more and more inspired. With clarity about the “problem” developing a solution comes with ease.

I have long held beliefs: that work has to be hard; that quitters are lazy scum.

But I’m starting to realize this isn’t true. A work ethic is important but work doesn’t have to make you feel dead. Work can make you feel alive.

And that’s what Sacred Career Design is about: finding what long held beliefs are keeping you stuck, looking at what makes you feel alive and taking steps towards a career that is more in sync with who you are and that life you want. I’m excited about this topic and look forward to sharing more in the not so distant future.

And so, yes, I made a mistake. But by listening and letting it go, the mistake is helping me is move towards the life that I want.

Talk soon,
Bryn

I work with big hearted people who want to make a positive impact in the world. The only problem is: -Your career isn’t working -You wake up some days and don’t want to get out of bed -You’re stressed about paying the bills Career Coaching in the Forest teaches you how to make small shifts that will free up tons of energy for the things you really love. A life where you wake up to feeling a sense of purpose and easily pay the bills. I teach you how to approach making a career change in a way that is fun, easy and gets results :). I have over a decade of experience in the field of education and during my four years at an educational non-profit I hired enough contract staff to know what employers want and DON’T WANT in the job application process. So why did I start this? When I was 24, I was overwhelmed by my job working with vulnerable youth and fell apart. I moved to a yoga centre for 2 years to put myself back together. There I figured out what I was messing up at work and became a yoga and meditation teacher. Career Coaching in the Forest will help you to see the mistakes you’re making without having to move to a yoga centre! And use meditative practices to help you see where you need to go. I know exactly what it feels when something’s not right in your career and now I love helping others to make changes so their lives can become full of meaning and purpose again and so that you can make lots money too ;).

  1. I agree that it is courageous to admit a mistake and move on, this was my first thought.
    I read it three times and I do not see a mistake. I see staying Present, being honest, connecting with your process of integrity.
    I respect that.
    Sharing what your writing was for me. Thank you.
