So we talked about it lunch that it's not my fault it's my type god I'd felt ashamed before that I wasn't a good manager and says right in my type your hand that was not her fault I wrote my little mantra now and I brought this because I have trouble sometimes this self esteem even though I'm always the loudest person I'm always the most scared first sin but I wrote you do have the seals personality in time to do the things that challenge you scare you and make you happy so okay we're ending there I got to everyone right oh my god, that was just the best thing okay all right all right so we have our puzzle pieces and now we need to talk about our personal homework right? So jim said like, oh, this room full of overwhelms people that are ready to start something but like where do we start and what do we dio obviously that could be a whole another creative life course so we're just we're gonna just blew like put it right on down so that we know when we leave this room when we turn off that computer what our personal homework iss hello here are some ideas of where to start okay this is what you might need to do next but before I get to them I want to give you some more reminders right? This is these are things that are gonna help you on your way reminder number one take ur time what we did in three sessions takes my client's three to four months and sometimes longer to do right so during that time they usually discover what it is they want to do and they start doing it but sometimes it just takes some that long to really like discover it and commit to it and just like get their feet barely a little bit wet so this is a process and taking your time leads to the clarity it leads to the commitment to write s o don't make any big like rash whimsical crazy decisions just still keep that exploration mine keep that career detective mind keep that begin our mind and explorer and take your time to contradict that don't take forever oh my goodness don't take forever notice when you feel that almost equal amount of nerves and x site name because that's always the path it's going to lead you to growth and clarity and then actually do something with it before you know twenty thirty because then I would be sad reminder number to get out of your head and into your hands. This was a phrase that one of my brilliant former clients came up with on dh she came to one of our sessions and said, michelle, I have to remember that when I do things and I used my hands that's that's when I feel like I'm moving forward and that's when things become clear to me so we could talk about this forever you could see sit in front of that computer and watch these videos over and over and over again, especially when you it's the course and and that's great up to a point but you need to stop thinking you need to stop analyzing and overthinking all over again and just do something already yes denver I redden author she said, doing instead of spewing, I like that bet on there there a puzzle and get totally be apiece uh reminder number three don't expect the linear don't expect it to be a straight line oh, I'm going to do this gonna lead me to this and this is going to make sense and blah blah blah I I've never met anyone who would describe their career path as linear so don't look for it instead expect this expect some of the execs is expect the roller coaster ride expect going taking two steps forward and one step back and five step forward and six steps back like expect that to be the process not that things are going to be a smooth ride reminder number four I'm so glad so many of you wrote this on your puzzle pieces baby steps build the strongest foundation so I really have zero regrets that it took me two years and seven months in my executive assistant job the very same month I started that job I started my career coaching certification and it took me that long to feel comfortable and confident leaving that job and in that time I took a baby step every day sometimes it was a big or baby steps sometimes I was coaching a client and maybe in a class or I was working on my website or you know, graduating from my certification those air kind of bigger steps and sometimes it was just oh I could write a paragraph of a block post today or oh I could follow five people on twitter today do something every day get that momentum and know that my timeline isn't everyone's timeline but if you rush rush, rush, rush, rush, rush, rush, rush rush through it you might have the semblance of something but you're gonna have bigger cracks in the foundation so here's some suggestions on how to kind of jump you off with the homework do it brained up as to what you need to do moving forward there space for this on pages one seventeen to one eighteen of the workbook here are some examples number one take the questions you wrote down in the four year consider operation exercise and gets researching so jenny right away you could say, how could I figure out how to teach croce and the way that I wanna teach o'shea what do I need to know about teaching? How could I build that curriculum? Not be something that you might do. So take those questions that you wrote down and know that, like I'm going to answer those questions that could literally be the first thing you do. Number two take a test drive of the career, the careers you want to try out eso you know, we talked about to be charged people doing not only d'oh make it as easy as possible, right? Like, like put it out there like molly quigley on facebook. Um, or you know, before she even asked anyone, could I write your copy for your online dating profile? She just wrote the curriculum for a classic she thinks she wants to teach, so this doesn't even have to involve ever anyone else and I love jenna did this last night. She wrote down. What would it be to be the swag analyzer? What would I do for you? And so you just having that outline, I think, gives you more inside us to whether it's something. I wanted to pick one of those things that you wrote down. Start to it. Take a test drive of the career. You want to try out number three, right, dear, future me the letter, ok, I love this exercise so much. I was trying to figure out a way to do it together while still being engaging, and I couldn't figure it out, but basically it's an exercise where you would write today's date at the top of the page, but a year later, so right now he would say september thirteen, twenty, fifteen and I would say, dear future, michelle and I would talk about in the letter, all the things that have happened from right now in the present to the date of that letter. So many things have happened since you appeared on creative live. Oh, my god, this happened with your business, and this happened with your family, and this is where you're living, and this is what you look like, and anything else that kind of comes to me, that I want to include now, this is not a road map for like, a checklist, then to the things that we want to do. This just helps us get that clarity and put it out into the universe and its interesting the person who told me about this exercise, her name is jessica lively, and she does really great work if you want to look her up. She said that she approaches from kind of a more scientific way that when she would do that exercise and she looked at it a year later, like something like eighty percent of the things she wrote down came true, and she didn't she didn't do any like aggressive work with that, but while that could be a side effect, I don't think that's the point of the exercise, it's just really to allow yourself tio flex that training muscle and really paint a picture of what it is you want for yourself, and then you tuck it away when I love to do is to loaded into a website called feature me dot orc, and it just allows you to write an email that you could stand to anyone and future date it. So you send it to yourself on the date of the letter, and and it appears in your email inbox well it's just it's so great to read that again I also I do is exercise pretty much every year on new year's day and I put it up on my block so if you have the workbook you'll have a link to my most recent letter which then has links to all of my other letters I do this and then I take up the really personal stuff and I put the rest of the line for brooke just the course now to get my big bat workbook and have evergreen access to all the material you could do this forever and ever and ever I have clients that comes to me for three four years later that same michelle I'm still referring to the notes from when we worked together there's still helping me and I know that when they're in this form and with these videos as opposed to just scattered notes all over the place who knows where they're going to end up and live um it's so much easier to go back to and re dio right so you could do this course in a year finding stuff financers print the workbook up again and do it all over uh you could visit when I grow up coach dot com slash creative life joined the dream career creators it's my close group on facebook currently there are over a hundred people in there from all over the world really, really super exciting uh paige is one eighteen to one twenty we're answering these questions right quick quick gut checks what is your own personal homer consist of what might have to be sacrificed in order to follow through on your homework talked about this with andrea little bit right? There might be tangible things in terms of you know I'm not gonna order so many things on amazon I'm going to stop buying shoes on sale at macy's and it might be the intangible things like I need to just deal with the fact that I might not be in control for a while or I need to allow myself to not have my identity be around my status like what is it that needs to be sacrificed? You can't say yes to something unless you say no to something else right? Especially in this time when our time is just so valuable it just can't happen so if you expect to do this on top of everything else you already dio uh good luck to you don't do that uh three what will you gain by doing your homework and what will you gain by doing euros you do the homework what are you gonna gain tangibly in tangibly what is that? What will your prizes and celebration the rights we talked about? We talked this in relation to play but if we tie a bribe or a celebration along with especially the things that we have to do that are really scary or really out of our comfort zone are really things that were not so good at, but we need to do it like looking at our finances so we know when we could quit our jobs, tie it up with the prize or a celebration and figure out what that is before hand before you do that and who could help you during this process. So you know, if you're in a relationship with a wonderful partner than they could help you, uh, the dream career creators could help you maybe a coach that you want to hire may be your best a friend who is it that you know we'll support you during this process that won't say, do you like, what are you doing again? What are u looking teo are like, what do you mean you won't be at happy hour like we know we all know those people it's, not those people, those people won't help you or other people here that are going to help you, so I want to hear I want to hear from you guys what's next on your less of what you need to do what's your personal homework yes, you and, uh I want dear future me letter o great feel sort of equally challenging and yeah, and exciting I have to say I have to just add its ends up being like sometimes an emotional experience not when I write it I like for myself the wine or the tea that I love and then you know, I put on the music that I like and like I kind of create the mood for it but yes it's challenging but also really powerful um I want to get in touch with paula, okay? The project management has thinks he's doing and going back to sort of the photography piece want to get in touch with heart gallery, which is a organization that takes pictures of foster kids, get them into adoption books and get him a doctor could help scale that cool. Okay, uh and I have a new camera and I need to sit down and actually spend time reading the book watching youtube and I also want to look at stock photography b I have a class to sit down and watch on that. So write what you doing next what's the next thing you're gonna do I like this. So you have your short list what's the net what are you doing tonight when you get home or tomorrow? First thing I'll allow it tomorrow um actually tomorrow I'm hoping to be playing with my niece okay tomorrow yes. What are you doing first off that list playing with my new camera. Fantastic. I'm going to new mexico in october for the balloon festival. How? I want to be able to get some really good pictures, though. And I have a feeling might be able to take your camera to see your niece and maybe tries to found this is true. I don't think she wants to be a model. Oh, yeah, right. Teo, you two together, she would way want to hear to in the chat tell us your personal homer. Tell us the very next thing that you know that you were going to dio stacy. Yes. You nodding? So I have to get out of my head and into my hands. How you going to do that? I have a ton of inventory that I already have done, but none of it's on my etc shop. Because I get stuck like it has to be. The perfect description has to be the perfect picture or nobody will buy it. And how do I do all the stuff? So I just have to just put out there. So when you hear that now, when you hear that perfection and lovable as it enough, but well, but now what do you do now, do you know where that's coming from, um how are we dealing with that now how do you like doing voices now I'm saying ok vampire voice I hear you but it's part of my personality type two that's harder so I accepted acknowledge it and then I'm just gonna push through it just thank you, vampire but I don't believe you anymore goodbye. Yeah, but by god I'll put this stuff on etc so that your celebration I could sit on the couch with a glass of wine watch my shows with my daughter that's what? We know you're going to get us yes, yes. Allow that. Who else? Jenna uh at this point I think I need to do a day for maybe tomorrow because alone somewhere maybe go to golden gate park thing but that I just have so many notes I want them all in one spot and I want to organize them so tastic. So that's what you know your next step is gonna be is to give yourself your own session for a great dream career which is like whatever you need to do to get yourself in that head space to do that. Fantastic great. Anyone coming up on the chat? Yes, absolutely.

Maybe I'm going to go to google and ask, you know, teaching courses or something like that, and so I could see the ways of doing it. And then number two is how dowe I want to teach I'm looking at the different ways of doing that, I don't know and then deadlines and then prizes and a big celebration at the end and the celebration could be, you know, either the fancy thing you're going to go to macy's and treat yourself to the shoes that you've been looking at. Absolutely or you're gonna go to a show or something like that or you're just going to say, soak in the frickin tub and tell, you know, the husband to entertain the kids and like that could be a celebration on its own, so I hope you guys notice that this course was called create your dream career because it's up to you vision it's and to shape it and bring it to life on I'm here to help.
