Have you ever felt like you know what you're meant to be doing, but you're just not doing it? Maybe you're feeling a little bit impatient. Maybe you're feeling a little bit nervous. Maybe you're feeling a little bit scared?
Our guest on today's episode, Ken Coleman, was feeling that exact same way when he found himself stuck in a career that was completely unfulfilling.
He knew that he was divinely created to do something more.
He knew that if he really wanted to pursue his passion, it was going to take time, energy, and giving more than he had given in the past.
In his recent book, Ken draws on what he learned from his journey, as well as from coaching thousands of others, to walk us through the seven stages of really discovering and doing meaningful work.
This book isn't just relevant to those in a traditional career. It’s also SO relevant to us as entrepreneurs!
In it you're going to learn step-by-step how to get clear, get qualified, get connected, get started, get promoted, get or make your dream job, and leave that legacy!
And today, I'm so excited to talk with Ken about what the journey was like for him. We're going to dive into the mindset of fear and doubt, and even pride, that can come alongside us on that journey. Ken's going to talk about some of the things that he struggled with, how he overcame those struggles. And no matter what objections we struggle with that get in the way of us living out our purpose… he's going to share his best encouragement for you!
So get out a pen and some paper — in fact, go ahead and head over to Amazon right now and grab the latest copy of his book so you can have it in your hand as you're listening to today's episode!
At 6:39, Ken talks about overcoming fear, specifically fear that’s tied up with doubt and pride. He tells us how to differentiate between fear and doubt and how these might manifest themselves as people are working through his seven steps.
At 12:19, we talk about the decision most entrepreneurs are faced with at some point: should I leave my corporate, 9-5 job? Ken walks us through the fears and doubts we might have and some ways to know if we’re making the right decision.
At 15:32, we cover objections: “Maybe I'm too old for this? Can I really do this? Am I truly cut out for this? Is this really possible for me?” Ken offers some GREAT encouragement here that I’m so excited for you to hear!
