I recently did an interview with Mary Ann Faremouth on CAREER CAN DO about How To Thrive In Any Circumstance. If you wanna THRIVE vs SURVIVE, take a listen. (Perhaps while you are on the treadmill today.)
Here is some of what we discussed:
In this episode of Career Can Do, guest Josselyne Herman-Saccio explores what it takes to empower dreams and defeat obstacles. Josselyne is a master coach and highly experienced course leader who has dedicated her career to empowering individuals to realize and pursue their dreams. Over the course of her career, she has worked with more than 200,000 people, helping them to create opportunities, overcome obstacles, and strive for success in both personal and professional contexts. Josselyne joins Mary Ann Faremouth to share her transformative approach to achieving personal and professional success. She stresses the importance of self-awareness, particularly about recognizing and challenging limiting beliefs, and maintaining a clear understanding of personal passion and purpose.
Burnout and work-life balance are pressing issues in today’s work environment. With the rise of digital communication tools like Zoom, employees can connect from across the globe, but this also brings new challenges. To effectively manage your life and responsibilities, Josselyne advocates using a calendar as a powerful organizing tool. By recording every task and commitment, you can create tangible context for your actions, helping to distinguish between imposed or "default" dreams and your own created dreams.
Josselyne introduces the concept of being “unmessablewith,” which she describes as a state of being that allows you to create in any circumstance without being hindered. This powerful mindset is an antidote to the effects of limiting beliefs, notions of truth, and scarcity, which can interfere with your ability to achieve your dreams.
She presents an alternative view of failure, encouraging individuals to perceive it not as an endpoint but as a part of the journey towards fulfillment and success. In Josselyne’s philosophy, failure is not something to be avoided or feared. Instead, it serves as a crucial learning opportunity, providing insights and lessons that can be invaluable for personal growth and progress. Recognizing that setbacks are a natural part of life's journey can empower you to navigate your path with resilience, tenacity, and focus on your ultimate goals.
