We've all been there - stuck in a job that just doesn't feel right.
In this episode, Nils Vinje shares his personal experience of working as a Xerox sales rep and how it was not aligned with who he was as a person.
Nils emphasizes the importance of checking for alignment in one's work and being honest with oneself about whether the work is truly fulfilling and aligned with one's values and strengths.
He learned the hard way that no matter how bad your brain wants something, if it doesn't align with who you are or who you want to become, it's not going to work.
So how do you know if your work is aligned with who you are?
Nils recommends continuously checking for alignment and being honest with yourself about whether you are truly doing yourself a disservice by staying in a position that is not aligned with who you are.
But it's not just about finding the right job - it's about creating a fulfilling career that aligns with your values and strengths.
Nils found his calling as a leadership coach and consultant, which is aligned with who he is as a person.
So if you're feeling stuck in your work, take a step back and evaluate whether it truly aligns with who you are.
And don't be afraid to seek help and support from your network during difficult times.
Remember, finding fulfillment in your work is an important part of living a happy and successful life.
