You're in your 20s or 30s, but this vision you were sold about having a "dream career" doing "work you love" seems like just an illusion.
Instead, the following sounds more like your reality:
You work in a job about which you don't feel passionate at all, but you stay because you’re afraid of not having enough money.
You’ve heard the advice, “Do work you love,” but you’re not sure that you are really that passionate about anything, to be honest.
You feel underappreciated and underpaid in your job.
You work so you can live, but you still seem to never have enough time, money, or PTO.
You started your job just to save to go traveling, or until you found a better one, or until you paid off your debt. Several years later, you’re still working there with no end in sight.
You’re living paycheck to paycheck.
There are a few things you’re passionate about, but they don’t pay well.
You think about going back to school to study something else, but you’re not sure what it would be.
You feel that your job controls your life instead of you controlling your life.
Shouldn’t I already have this figured out?
Maybe I just don’t have passion or life purpose.
It’s not possible to both have enough money and do something I love. I have to choose.
Everyone has to work until they retire. That’s just how life is.
I am here to tell you that absolutely none of that is true.
You have a very specific purpose on this earth, no matter who you are, what you’ve done, what degree you have (or don’t have!), or how few resources you were born into.
It’s just that no one around you knew this, so they couldn’t teach it to you.
This is why those around you are suffering with their finances, work, and personal life: it’s not because they have to.
It's because they don’t know there’s a better way.
Schools teach algebra and history, but they don't teach how to look inside and find your natural gifts.
They don't teach you how to lead a fulfilled life.
You are not the only one who feels this way. I’d venture to say that the vast majority of people feel this way, and it’s for one and only one reason:
Because they don’t know that they deserve something better.
And I’m here to deliver the wonderful news that you deserve a passionate, fulfilling career and life.
You can have a passionate career and life.
Every single person can, and you are no exception.
You don't need to "find your passion."
You don't need to "figure out your purpose."
Your passion and purpose are already there inside of you.
It's just that you have been taught to comply, not to shine.
Most people believe that you can't have it all. They believe that:
You can have a job you love or you can have a job that pays well, but you can't have both.
You can travel the world or be competitive in your career, but you can't have both.
You can work for yourself and have control of your life or you can work for someone else and have no control over your life.
These beliefs cause people to stop looking for something better because they believe something better doesn’t even exist.
I have proven again and again that you really can have it all. In the past 10 years, I have:
Traveled all over the world
I’ve hiked Machu Picchu, ridden gondolas in Italy, visited the ruins of Angkor Wat, toured the Vatican, ridden elephants in Thailand, seen an opera at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, ate sushi in Tokyo, hiked 100 miles in Yellowstone, and the list goes on.
Started my own remote business
My completely digital business allowed me to travel the world while I grew my business, hired a team, and reached six figures in revenue in 2016.
Lived on a beach paradise in the Philippines
I lived on a remote island in the Philippines with room and board paid for 5 months while I worked on my business.
Taught English in South Korea
I taught English in a public elementary school for 3 semesters in South Korea.
Have a job that I love
Most recently, at the age of 29, I got my first “real job” doing work that I love while I continue to run my own nearly passive business.
You might think that I have some advantage that you don’t, but it’s not true.
I wasn’t supported financially by my parents.
I didn’t know what I wanted to do from a young age. And I didn’t start out with an inheritance or a lottery win.
In fact, I spent many years wondering what I was meant to do.
I had a lot of interests, like travel and music, but none of them seemed to pay very well. Like many millennials, I was told to “follow my passion and the money will come.”
Only I followed my passion and the money didn’t come.
I felt lied to, betrayed, hopeless, and desperate for something, but I didn't know what it was.
But through all of this, there was one thing that I did right:
I refused to believe that I had to have a career or life I hated.
I decided that if I was going to live this life, my one life, I would do what I love, even if I wasn’t sure yet what that was.
Along the way, I leveraged the expertise of several different coaches and teachers, who helped me discover my true gifts and all that I am meant to contribute to the world.
I now experience my life fulfillment by helping others meet their potential and experience fulfillment in their career and lives.
Here are the words that most people use to describe me:
I never "arrived."
Life is a journey, not a destination.
But I learned that if I wasn’t enjoying the journey, I needed to change the scenery when I can, change my perspective when I can't, or most likely, do both.
Close your eyes and
What would it look like? What would it feel like?
I’m here to tell you that you are meant for more. You are meant to be happy, fulfilled, full of passion, and making the world a better place with your gifts.
I’d even go so far as to say that you are actually withholding your gifts from the world by not finding your passion.
You don't have to do it anymore.
When you are fulfilling your purpose in this world, you:
Feel deep joy and peace, while at the same time very powerful, as if you’re right in the calm eye of a tornado.
Attract other people like a magnet. They just want to be around you, to feel your energy, and to hear what you have to say.
Have boundless energy. People ask you your secret, and you shrug and tell them that it comes from within.
Know without a doubt that you are in control of your life. Whether you are employed, self employed, or unemployed, you know that you are free to do whatever you please and no one, not even your boss is in control of you.
Hear your friends say that you’re the luckiest person they know.
When you are living in your purpose, you are swimming with the current of the Universe, not against it (does the latter sound like some work days in the recent past?).
This can be your reality.
Life and Career Coaching
Radiant Life life and career coaching is for those who are tired of feeling helpless, passionless, broke, and busy.
If you’re tired of your life passing you by, day by day doing nothing to contribute to the world or your own happiness, then you might be a good fit for Radiant Life coaching.
Anna Wickham has been helping audiences all over the country and the world learn to listen to that little voice that they were born with.
Radiant Life coaching with Anna will NOT:
Give you a career assessment test with 1,000 questions like you may have taken in high school or college.
Tell you to quit your job and follow your childhood dream of becoming an NBA star or pop singer.
Encourage you to travel the world, start a business, or do anything else that does not fit into your unique vision of a fulfilled life.
The passionate career and life looks different for all of us, and yours will most likely not look like mine.
Radiant Life coaching with Anna WILL:
Clear away the obstacles to your clarity about your purpose, leaving you in your natural state of clarity.
Re-teach you how to listen to that tiny voice that has been whispering your passion and purpose since you were born, but that society, your parents, your teachers, have all taught you how to ignore.
Teach you practical tactics for executing your purpose once it is re-discovered, so that you will not only experience joy and fulfillment, but you will truly make the world a better place.
Help you balance financial abundance with passion and purpose so that you can live a life that has both.
Help you create priorities so that you can have your unique version of “having it all.”
Give you confidence to pursue the things that you are meant to do.
Whether you know what you want and feel certain you can’t have it, or you have no idea what you want at all, Radiant Life coaching will teach you how to find the clarity, purpose, and passion that is not outside of you, but has been inside of you all along.
Here’s what you can expect in your Radiant Life coaching package:
You will feel confident, purposeful, and completely in control of your life.
Navigate current work or home demands more effectively so that you have more options and less stress.
You will learn how to value your internal signals as guides toward rest, self care, asking for help, cutting ties, and other powerful actions that bring peace and joy.
If necessary, you have support and love as you transition from a career that you felt you had to do toward the career that you were made to do.
Once you rediscover your passion, you will have the action plan you need to carry it out and be an influence in the world.
Don’t let your life pass you by each day as your purpose slowly dies inside of you, unfulfilled and leaving the world unchanged.
No matter who you are, what you’ve done, what you have, or what you don’t have, you were born for a specific purpose, and that purpose likely lays dormant inside of you, just waiting to be brought to life.
