"My discovery was that I am ‘selling’ a product that I did not believe in.
Have you ever experienced a heaviness leading to exhaustion and then burn out at work? You just do the bare minimum you need to do, so you don't get fired? That was where I was near the end of a 12-year career dealing with satellites and communication. The prospects seemed good, people thought I was in a great spot, but somehow I found myself withdrawing into myself, and up against a brick wall. I found my voice so feeble. I dragged myself to work everyday.
Initially I thought that is what is supposed to be and I will get used to it. It took some time for me to figure out what was happening. My discovery was that I am ‘selling’ a product that I did not believe in. It was not connected with what I was born to do. I was not using my strengths at work nor staying aligned with what gives me fulfillment in life.
