The Opportunities that Emerges from ‘the Edge’

I learned that I needed to lift my head and ask a few questions, so I can uncover the opportunities that present in front of me.

My learning and exploration continued. I was in a larger corporation, in a role that was much closer to my heart and my energy was at its peak. Few years down the road, I felt the same exhaustion I experienced a number of years back. Why this sense of dissatisfaction now? I realized I am capable of more and wanted to do more, but the structures around me were not helping. Why am I in this bad situation again? What is wrong with me? I badly wanted answers and I had none.

When a student is ready, a teacher appears – I believe. A friend appeared with a question:

“What would be the next step in your career/life? What would you do now, so that you prepare yourself for that next step?”

I realized that I didn’t fully appreciate the resources I had and did not see the opportunities that presented in front of me. After a little thinking, it was clear that I wanted to start my own business practice and will use the current situation to learn all I needed, before making my first move. I started saying yes to any projects, especially challenging ones that came my way. Everything made sense now, I was motivated again and I saw myself getting closer to where I want to be, with gratitude.
