FIRED FOR BEING GREAT AT MY JOB – When is the right time to move on? Comfort VS Growth.

One day I got called into my boss’s office, and he said to me, “It’s time to hire your replacement, go run an ad.” And at that moment, I was feeling a little disoriented. I was feeling confused – I hadn’t quit, I quite liked this job, what was going on?

He followed it by saying, “You’ve outgrown this position, and it’s time for you to move up in the company. Take a look at what department you want to work in, and let’s get your replacement hired.” So at that moment, I was fired and promoted simultaneously, and it was a little bit shocking.

The truth was, I had outgrown that position. I probably was ready to move on. But I was also very comfortable in that position. I was good at it and left to my own devices, I probably would have stayed a little longer, or maybe a lot longer, in a job that I had outgrown.

You are not designed for mediocrity. You are designed for greatness. You're not meant to settle, to be comfortable.

Sound familiar?

Is there an area in your life where you’re very comfortable, where you are good at it, but you have outgrown it?

In the absence of somebody saying to us, “Hey, it’s time to move on,” it’s easy to settle and keep doing things that we’re comfortable with and what we’re good at. While feeling unfulfilled, and not living into our whole selves or total capacity, we fall asleep to that comfort.

Have you ever had a boss or a mentor in your life where you’re still unpacking the lessons from them? That was this boss for me. He was phenomenal. He intentionally hired people into that particular position to mentor them so that they could move on in the company. As a result of working for him, I went on to have a long career inside that organization, moving up that corporate ladder. And most importantly, it instilled within me this idea of don’t get too comfortable and don’t stay comfortable.

And because of that, it trained me to recognize within myself, “Oh, this is getting a little too comfortable, it’s time to grow.”

I don’t know very many people who had a boss like that. Who had somebody in their life who said, “Hey, you! It’s time to grow!”

Let me be that person for you today

Take a look at your life. Has it become too comfortable for you? Let me say to you, it’s time to grow. It’s time to leave your comfort zone. It’s time to expand your horizons. To try something new. What does that look like for you? Where can you be growing? You are not designed for mediocrity. You are designed for greatness. You’re not meant to settle, to be comfortable. You are meant to grow, expand, challenge yourself, do more, be more, and have more.

Today is your day where you say yes to growth, yes to your potential, say no to mediocrity, say no to settling.

If you’re ready to grow if you know this is your moment to say yes to yourself, yes to your dreams. Let’s have a conversation. Let me help you get clear about your vision, to design what that purpose is, what your passion is so that you can live intentionally. You can grow beyond your comfort zone.

I would love to offer you today a complimentary strategy session where we will get on the phone and unpack what it is that you would love in your life.
