#011: THIS WAY OUT – 3 Steps To Not Feeling Trapped In Your Job Anymore

Sep 21, 2021

Feeling trapped in your job sucks. If you’re ready to get out of that box, then this is the episode for you.

Feeling trapped is the worst.  You end up dragging your ass to work every day, stuck in a ‘have-to’ mindset and wishing you could be doing anything else. The reason you feel trapped is because you tell yourself you have no choice. You have to do this.

I get it. Been there.  Done that.  

So what if I asked you how you want to feel instead? Let me offer you a few ideas to get you started.  How about a sense of FREEDOM or INSPIRATION or EXCITEMENT? How would that change your life? What would you be willing to do to have a little of that right now?

In this episode what I’m offering is a way out of feeling trapped in your job. I’m going to give you three go-to action steps you can take right now to start feeling inspired and excited about going to work, and never feeling trapped in your job again.

Think of them as keys to unlocking the door so you never have to feel trapped again.

I want to offer you immediate relief from your situation so you can be the superstar you know you can be and have the success you deserve!
