Have you got to a point in your career where you feel stuck? No matter how much hard work you put in that promotion just isn’t happening and you have forgotten why you wanted it in the first place. Simply put – you have lost your mojo and you would really like to get it back.
This story is fiction, but inspired by a real life experience during a review of Glasvegas at The Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea. This story was also originally published in ALT-MU Magazine as a three part series.
The last 5 years have been rocky but without these people I wouldn’t have been able to take the Y out of that equation and ROCK!
The biggest lesson I have learned in this time is how important it is to surround yourself with people that inspire you.
So, here goes…
Talk about setting myself up for a fall! I got to day 2 and then I pretty much crumbled.
In June 2014 I promised my readers a post for every stone I lost as I bravely marched forward with my plan to lose a whopping 7.5 stone. By December I had lost 2 stone 6lbs and since? Well, I have pretty much maintained that loss but also seem to have lost determination to continue on my mission.
“Have you tried turning it off and on again?”
Often the solution to a problem is less complex than we originally perceive it to be. Humour aside, turning your computer off and on again, or signing in and out of your software can solve a multitude of issues. Maybe we should all apply this simplistic approach more often in life.
For those not in the ‘Jen the Red’ loop, I started my weight loss journey in June with an initial target of 3 stone and promised my readers a post for every stone I lose. Well, here I am as promised over 2 stone down and with a big smile across my face!
As I approach my 34th birthday and, only now, feel that I am building strong foundations for a healthy and happy future – I have been doing a lot of thinking about how I got here.
I just had to run for the train and as I sprinted in desperation to get there on time I realised… I can run! My belly is no longer rebounding up and down vigorously causing my leggings to fall down. Im knackered and it is still tough but the fact remains. I ran today.
Over the last few years I have been on my own pursuit of ‘realness’ and I have experienced both negative and positive responses to my constant drive to be utterly and completely myself, which has caused me to consider; how ‘real’ can we really be in a business scenario?
