Unpopular Opinion: Rushing Through the Uncomfortable Seasons is Holding You Back in the Long Game. Here's WHY!
In Episode 83, I'm sharing an unpopular opinion around how we're really only hurting ourselves by rushing away the uncomfortable messy middle seasons in order to get to the next box on the success checklist. The in-between seasons are where the most transformational growth happens. These are the seasons that qualify us to handle the stuff we *think* we are ready for.
Today's conversation is a lot of self-reflection but I'm also seeing these lessons reflected back in new ways recently. When we can't clearly tell the world who we most authentically are, we're inclined to want to show up the way we perceive society to WANT us to show up. And in trying to be someone else, it feels easy to push for that next check box. But by rushing through those messy seasons, we miss the opportunity to find our own unique voice. We miss sitting in the mess - you know - the hard stuff that qualifies us to take on the harder stuff.
In this conversation I'm for sure spilling the tea on years of navigating toxic corporate bs but the hurt is what transformed me into the compassionate human-first leader I am today! Looking back is totally uncomfortable, but really every 'bad' thing that happened was qualifying me to be the leader I am today and that is a leader that drives impact. Curious - can you relate to anything I shared?
