Attract the Right Job Or Clientele:

Are You Fearless Enough to Remove Barriers?

Growing up, many of us frequently experience bullying and degradation to begin questioning our existence. The underlying question relates to our meaning of life and what we may bring forward ‘one day.’

I was motivated to snap the photo of the beautiful clouds as we were flying home from overseas travel. Clouds can represent sunshine or storms or barriers vs. possibilities in real life. Our life story is about how we handle our unique clouds.

To ultimately find pride in our accomplishments, we must unite for what is right and be fearless enough to remove barriers. Oddly enough, the worst experiences are our gifts in disguise when we are willing to step up and do what it takes to right the wrongs standing in our way. The same applies to individuals and executives in organizations supposedly leading the way for others. But the ultimate gift in experiencing the worst is to recognize the essential lessons and share them with whoever will listen to empower them to do better in community service.

My Story

I was privileged to share my story with Rosie Ward, PhD., Podcast Host, and team ~ Lisa Rosemeyer and Stephanie Hicks of the PEOPLE FORWARD NETWORK. Moreover, they provide the following insights accompanying the conversation Dr. Ward and I enjoyed.

Should you have limited time to listen to the full episode, the following show notes may influence you to break the podcast into time components:

Key takeaways from this episode:

  • Leaders show care and support in different ways.
  • Positive and negative experiences shape our beliefs and behaviors.
  • Stick to values and priorities, and don’t be swayed by anyone or any circumstance.

The conversation progresses with examples of how life interrupts our progress by hurling challenging events at individuals. Our bottom-line question is, are we daring enough and willing to do ‘what it takes’ to surpass the previously unimaginable incidents to grow into the type of leader we wish to exemplify? The differentiator is the willingness to find the courage to step up and surpass the nastiness surrounding us. I agree 100% with Walt Disney’s original statement that ‘Dreams do come true!’

However, finding people and organizations with similar values and priorities is the secret to success. Why? The collaborative effort of a community spirit becomes exponential with possibilities and enables us to accomplish far more than we initially envisioned. Moreover, it’s best to work with those who will challenge our initial ideas using motivation and inspiration to expand upon them. Doing so is how the previously unimaginable begins to emerge.

Should accepting challenges sound absurd? Listen to my conversation with Dr. Rosie Ward to realize how the worst can ultimately present the best occurrences in our lives. My motto is to embrace the clouds, weigh possibilities from all perspectives, and then chart out the better course for our unique approach in life. More obstacles may occur, but once in practice, we know how to move beyond the barriers we experience. Ultimately, it all comes down to mindset over matter and working for the greater good.

Your Story: Are You Fearless Enough to Remove Barriers?

The essence of influence, achieving goals, and ultimately appearing as a leader in your field is to step up to what is right, just, and fair. The question is, are you willing to do so to remove barriers? Understand it can take many years to see any sign of progress, and sometimes it feels like we are on a slippery downhill slope. But by sticking to principles and values, we ultimately meet individuals who think similarly and who willingly combine efforts to move progress forward.

Another helpful step is to find an organization dedicated to working toward the greater good. Participation allows you to meet more similar-minded people, and together, you are more likely to achieve exponential results. At the same time, the connections can motivate you to attempt something extraordinary beyond your initial vision. Once this occurs, obstacles will not defeat you but present a challenge to move beyond. There will be no stopping you, only new mountains to climb and enjoy the journey ahead!

In Conclusion: Fearless Enough to Remove Barriers

Accomplishing goals requires steadfastness to see them through no matter the obstacles one may face. Doing so may require standing up to those we report, quitting a job, or beginning a new career or business venture. Dealing with employers can be more nerve-wracking. Ensure you are on a solid track. Consider researching legal services beforehand and speak with an attorney to know your rights. One step at a time will help you strengthen your determination and become fearless enough to remove barriers.
