We’re all familiar with the “we’ll be happy when” mindset. But what happens when you’ve got the job, the money, the condo, and you realize that all along you were living other people’s lives and not your own?

This week’s guest, Emilio Palafox (Speaker on resilience and Channel Development Manager of Pulse Centers, hit just that spot.

You Are Not Your Job: How to Quit Your Career Without Losing Your Identity – A Quit Happens Chat with Kirsten Asher

We know the drill all too well – you meet someone new and they ask you what you do, as if what you do gives them a great idea of who you are. The idea of equating job with identity is so pervasive that the fear of losing an identity can keep people stuck in jobs that aren’t right for them for years.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. This week’s guest, Kirsten Asher of the Feminine Embodiment Method and the Art of Being Feminine, describes how part of the self-work she did through the course of several career transitions was to realize that who she was didn’t depend on what she did, it was instead a reflection of her morals and values.

Quitting Your Way to Greatness: When Your Mission is Larger than Your Fears – A Chat with Mike Sherbakov

Have you ever had that feeling that something was off? That somehow your thoughts and words and actions weren’t aligning with who you knew you were? That you were destined for greatness but not yet approaching it?

This week’s guest, Greatness Foundation founder Mike Sherbakov, calls that feeling “divine discomfort.” And he suggests that instead of suppressing that feeling, take note and ask what you could do to get more in line with your passions and purpose, which requires refining your ability to listen to your body and follow your intuition…and quit whatever is keeping you out of alignment!

Mending your Mindset: How One Doctor Quit Hiding Behind the White Coat – A Chat with Dr. Kien Vuu

The number of physicians who are reaching burnout is staggering, and it’s no surprise, as medical schools only recently began teaching students how to be well and take care of themselves. But another reason is often that the pressure put on doctors to be perfect and fulfill society’s expectations is often crushing.

This week’s guest, Dr. Kien Vuu, was headed down a less-than-healthy road himself when he realized part of why he went into medicine was to treat his “not enough-ness.” It took quitting that mindset and cultivating an attitude of success and gratitude to be able to turn his life around and become the true healer he knew he was inside.
