Am I Stuck in the Wrong Career?

Are you afraid you may be stuck in the wrong career?

Do you wish you could get rid of the voice in your head that says there’s something missing?

And does making a change mean blowing up everything you care about?

In today’s coaching call, I talk with a former golf professional who is now in a successful corporate career. He’s got money and stability, but something’s missing. Listen in as we connect the dots between playing it safe, risk, and doing what makes him feel truly alive.

In this interview:

  • Wanting more out of your career
  • What to do when “something’s missing”
  • Torn between playing it safe and wanting more
  • Why aliveness is key to our peace of mind
  • Is too much stability killing your aliveness?


  • How to leverage who you truly are vs hide out
  • Are you doing what you should do or what you want to do?
  • The fear of going backwards or losing status
  • Why believing we have to make a huge leap keeps us stuck
  • Treating everything as an experiment

Note: What you’re about to hear is an actual coaching call. The person being coached volunteered and gave explicit permission to have our conversation recorded for this podcast.
