#56: "Making it in LA is hard" Doesn't Have To Be Your Story

Other people's opinions about what your experiences should be like often mirror the results that we get in our career. These "stories" seep into our subconscious and end up dictating the way in which we go after our dreams.

We develop stories about everything in our life from money, to our love lives, to our health, to our career. These stories develop when we are younger from our parents, or from our experiences, or from negative thoughts we have, or even what people around us believe.

But these stories can be rewritten. Your career can look however you want it to look. You can experience it however you want to experience it.

Here are questions to ask yourself to see if you're treating your time with utmost respect:

There are so many different ways to achieve your dream career. Often times, we figure out one way, and we stick to it, even if it doesn't seem to be working. We get so comfortable in the action that we don't want to try anything else. And that's how we get stuck in our careers. 

In this episode I give real-life examples of the multiple avenues you can take, and how to know when it's time to try a different one.

#52: What To Do When You Feel Defeated
