Have You Outgrown Your Career? – Coaching Call with Tripp Lanier

Are you wondering what to do with the next phase of your career?

Have you lost touch with what lights you up, brings connection, or gives you meaning?

And do you feel pressured to blow up what you’ve got and pursue your perfect calling?

In today’s coaching conversation, I talk with a guy who has built a successful business that many would love to have. The problem is, he feels like it’s killing his soul. He’s lost touch with what brings him aliveness and meaning. He’s on a search to find the perfect calling but doesn’t realize that this is just another trap.

In our conversation, we take a look at the beliefs that are limiting his mindset, give him some tools to create the aliveness and connection he truly wants right now, and set his sights on a new possibility — if he’s willing to do the work.

In this interview:

  • The 3 stages of work
  • Outgrowing our careers
  • Moving from fear into creativity
  • Why connecting is better than communicating
  • Searching for your calling is a trap


  • Your calling may be right underneath your nose
  • Does work keep you from finding your play?
  • The trap of exoneration — Phil Stutz
  • The skill we can develop to create more aliveness and connection
  • Proving you’re not a loser

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.
