Ep #154: Advance Your Career in 2023 by Focusing on Contentment

If you asked me how I was doing at almost any point this year, my answer would have been the same:

“Really, really good.”

For me, 2022 was a year of contentment.

Not contentment as in: 

👉 No longer striving for something more (which is what I used to believe contentment was).

But contentment as in: 

👉 Being incredibly happy with where I am and growing and achieving so much more from a place of desire instead of need.

And when I look back over the year my clients inside of Executive Ahead of Time and The Leadership Table have had, I see this same kind of contentment.

The work that we are doing made their next promotions inevitable.

And so getting promoted wasn’t a feeling of need, but a feeling of…’of course.

And the women who were turned down for an opportunity, who were laid off, who had a new boss they didn’t like…they didn’t feel distraught.

Instead, they could simply say, ‘ok, next!’

Because when you know in your bones that you are great, that you have what it takes to get promoted to those executive levels, and when you know that your next promotion is just the beginning of the impact you are here to make in the world, everything comes together – and it feels so, so good.

So in this episode of Women Changing Leadership with Stacy Mayer, I am sharing the different things my clients and I did in 2022 that allowed us to access this level of contentment so you can reach a whole new level of contentment and success in 2023.

Let’s dive in.
