TODAY is my 12-year anniversary in the US and California!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
I landed at San Francisco International Airport with my two suitcases exactly 12 years ago today. So, I GET to CELEBRATE!!! 🎉🎉🎉
…and reflect on the many DREAMS that I’ve manifested since I arrived. This is a practice I’ve my clients do. Take stock of all their many achievements (in the past 1, 5, 10, 20 years) I encourage you to do the same! It is a great confidence booster. My life is far from being perfect and I’m navigating some new challenges this year. AND I’ve achieved SO MUCH in the past 12 years; it’s time to CELEBRATE and take stock of that.
I am modeling what I teach. I’m walking the talk. So, here it is: 🔥 I manifested my long-time dream to move to the San Francisco Bay Area. ⭐️ I worked for one of the biggest Internet company in the world. (Yahoo!)🔥 I achieved my dream of becoming bilingual (English-French.) ⭐️ After 10 years of working in User Experience, I reinvented my career to follow my passion and calling. 🔥 I went back to school to study Psychology and Coaching. ⭐️ I stepped into my purpose by starting my own career reinvention coaching business. (a long-time dream of mine) 🔥 I developed a successful business that I love, that totally supports me financially. ⭐️ I’ve worked with hundreds of clients guiding them on their own career reinvention through 1:1 and group coaching. 🔥 I’ve lead 80+ workshops and talks about “Discovering the Career You Love” and “Making Your Own Career Shift.” talking to a total of 1,000+ people. ⭐️ I was invited to speak on 8 success panels to share the successes in my business and life. 🔥 I’ve GROWN tremendously on the personal and professional levels. ⭐️ I’ve worked directly with 20+ business, love, personal, relational, and spiritual mentors. 🔥 I’ve taken 20+ training courses and programs (ranging from 2-day to year-long programs) related to business, professional, personal, and spiritual development. ⭐️ I climbed the highest peaks in the continental US and four 14,000 peaks in the US and Europe. 🔥 I realized my long-time dream of rock, snow, and ice climbing, moving past doubts and fears. ⭐️ I went over my fear and started downhill skiing at 35, skiing black diamond slopes in just a few months after my first day on the slopes; and I started backcountry skiing. 🔥 I went on a dozen snow camping and backpacking trips. ⭐️ I visited some of my dream locations (Scotland, Costa Rica, Monument Valley). 🔥 I’ve gone on many solo trips (ranging from a weekend to 3 weeks) – locally, nationally, and internationally. – driving, flying, camping, staying in rooms and Airbnb. ⭐️ I manifested my dream apartment in the SF Bay Area Hills with a hot tub and a breathtaking view of the Bay. 🔥 I indulged in my passion for fashion, by hiring a high-end Stylist and Image Consultant and participating in two professional photoshoots, with some of the best photographers in the industry. ⭐️ I explored my passion for dancing and learned partner dances (waltz, ballroom dances, salsa, swing, etc), and practiced many free-form dances. 🔥 I dived into my passion for authentic relating by taking weekend workshops and year-long courses to master relational skills. ⭐️ After many years of searching, I found a spiritual community that I love.
There is more, but that’s a good start! Thank you for reading! It is special for me to share all of that with you. Both vulnerable and exciting.
Now, your turn.
I invite you to do the same!
Take stock of all your achievements, big or small, in the past 10 years.
You’ll see that you have achieved WAY MORE than you give yourself credit for.
I just helped another of my client clarify her ultimate career dream and the work she is here to do on the planet.
After 4 months of working together, this is what she said in our session last week:
“It’s like a North Star I can finally see and some kind of purpose. This is the first time I’m seeing that for a very long time. It was hidden. I’ve something I can work towards. It’s a huge relief, to not have this constant fear that I don’t know what I want; that what I’ll do will be a mistake.” (Shared with her permission; name kept confidential)
When we started together, like many of my clients, she was anxious about her future:
“I don’t know what I’m here for, what I’m supposed to do. I fear that what I’ll do will be a mistake.”
Now, only four months later, she is clear about her dream career and her purpose. She has found her North Star.
She wants to “found a business that develops solutions to help close the gap of inequality for women in the workplace. Covering aspects such as equal pay, equality of opportunity, and equal representation in executive leadership.”
She is only 27 and I know this will happen in her lifetime.
This is her DESTINY and she has what it takes to fulfill it.
You do too.
Whatever yours is.
and however old you are. I’ve helped clients in their 20’s all the way to clients in their 60’s.
If they did it, so can you.
P.S. Your North Star is waiting for you. Will you go and find it?
I actually have 39 five-star reviews but only 29 are visible.
This is the reflection of my fierce commitment to being of best service to each one of my clients.
Excellence. Integrity. Transformation.
These are some of the core values that guide my work.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
P.S. You or someone you know want to become a success story too? This month, I’m welcoming two new 1:1 clients who are ready to discovering the career they absolutely love and the confidence to make it happen! >> Apply here to schedule a time to chat with me. Please forward this to people you know (spouse, friend, relative, coworker) who need the help!
Contact her if you know of a web designer with WordPress knowledge who could help her redesign her website. It would be pro bono but she would “credit them in whatever way they would like.” Email Carla at:email@example.com
