It's easy to get sucked into the newest idea, theory, or practice. What happens when we don't get what we expected? This summer has taught me a good lesson on expectations and why we should be wary of "turning points" and the revelations outside of ourselves. Everything is an internal process whether we like it or not. And many times those needed lessons are not fun, exciting, or comfortable. Subscribe to the True Calling Project on iTunes and find it

Technology is ruining our excuse that we use that says "I don't know how to do it" or "I don't know where to start". Knowledge is not something that is separate to be kept from us and guarded by the select few. No, you are just scared or insecure or not ready. And there is nothing wrong with that. Better to face fear and learn from it than hide behind the false notion that there is some source of knowledge out there that you're not privy to that is keeping you stuck. It's not that "we don't know how", we just may not know "yet". Subscribe to the True Calling Project podcast on iTunes or find it

We've been taught that material wealth and gain is the best way to measure our success.  But why are so many people who "have it all" miserable with their work and occupations?  I talk about reading Daniel Pink's book "Drive" and why if we don't have 3 factors in our work to express ourselves in, we are not going to be as satisfied with our work.  The science has spoken.  Money doesn't create job satisfaction.

We look to people with special knowledge to help us solve problems, or give us insight, that we can't necessarily do on our own.  But how often do we overlook our own abilities in comparison to these experts?  When others have a credible skill set, it doesn't mean that what we have to offer is somehow "less".  There is a tendency to shrink from putting ourselves out there in fear that we won't be as credible as others we see as subject matter experts.  However, expertise, in many cases is subjective. And we have to be the judge as to take in from others what is right for us.  The best experts still have to know how to communicate and connect with others to help them with their knowledge.  Otherwise, it's only knowledge and nothing more.  Even a small child can give us the bit of awareness that can help us learn something valuable.  When we recognize that true "expertise", in this weird experience we call life, is very much an illusion it allows us to give what we have.  We don't know who we can help and how we can help them if we don't express what we have.  Don't let others supposed superior knowledge keep you from putting yourself out there.  Subscribe to the True Calling Project podcast on iTunes and find it here:
