Look... I get it! I know first hand what it feels like to be deeply discouraged, frustrated and fed up with not having the outer results in my life accurately reflect the inner potential that I knew was inside of me. After I retired from being a professional athlete (USA National Team & World Cup competitor in swimming), for the first half of my professional life I felt like a fish out of water because my day jobs never seemed to line up with my day dreams and natural strengths. Like most of us, the primary reason I
excepted a job was not because it matched my gifting but because it offered a steady pay check with good benefits. Now don't get me wrong, a job is a "blessing." But what I know now that I didn't know then is, doing your work and doing what makes you come alive don't have to be two mutually exclusive ideas. You can "get paid to be YOU!"
The trick is learning how to translate your strengths into real solutions that others will actually pay you for.
“I can't think of a more fitting calling for a man who has excelled at helping people win in life. He's the ideal dream coach who knows how to facilitate others through a process that he himself has walked. I cannot think of a more stellar man. Byron walks in his calling of transformation coach with humility and authentic concern and care."
No matter if you want to work for an established organization, or venture out to launch your own start-up, knowing how you position yourself to do work that you are naturally wired to win at is critical. Research continues to reveal that we do our best work when it is work that matters to others and meaningful to ourselves. Real fulfillment is found in having the financial opportunity to engage in our strengths while doing work that solves real problems for others.
Studies also show that 70% of your adult life will be spent working. If that's true, why not once and for all, do work that allows you to:
1. Live with passion.
2. Play to your strengths.
3. Get paid to do and share what you love!
“Thoughtful, inspiring, and authentic. Working with Byron is like having your own “hype-man” in your corner. What’s cool is Byron is able to see the great within you that your may take for granted or overlook and conversationally helps you plan your work and more importantly, work your plan.”
As the founder of PaidToBeYOU! (a movement that helps talented people get unstuck and create meaningful work around their strengths) one of the biggest challenges I see people facing is getting crystal clear about which of their passions and interests can honestly make them a very good living?
The Sweet Spot Finder Tool is a FREE resource action guide that allows you to discover where your passions, strengths, and the needs of the marketplace collide. Let's be honest there are things in life that we enjoy doing but will never be world-class at -for me it's singing... Lol :-). That's o.k.!
The good news is you do have passions that you can become "world-class" in that can be the solution to problems in your organization or marketplace. You have inner gifts right now that can be "packaged" differently and offered to the world in a new and fresh way. And get this... You can get paid at a premium for them. How cool is that?
Imagine waking up every morning knowing that you make a great living doing work that is perfectly aligned with your passion and purpose!
