Each women’s career journey is unique.
Your career has probably gone through more twists and turns than you think.
As you begin to reflect on your experience and explore where you have been, it will allow you to begin to connect the dots of your life themes.
Creating a deeper connection to who you are, a stronger appreciation of your life, and answers in how to move forward in your career.
With that being said, a women’s peak is the path she travels in her career.
The starting point is around age 16 when you first enter into the workforce.
Depending on the study and career path chosen will depend when you receive your first stripe.
Stripes are where you combine effort, success and can claim your badge of honour.
Every industry has them. In education, it’s moving from a graduate teacher to a classroom teacher.
In trades, it’s when an apprentice becomes fully qualified.
This usually happens around 20 - 25 years old.
Then you work towards getting your second stripe at around age 25 – 30.
Then your third stripe at age 30 - 35.
These are the times when you can relax a little while you continue building your maturity and experiences.
Then at around age 40, you enter into your peak.
Your peak is described as the phase where you are in your own power, prioritise yourself, find your voice, and know your worth.
This is when you align your ambitions with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose.
Where are you at in your career journey?
How long is your peak?
I say how long can you learn and grow?
Let me save you a lot of time searching.
The meaning of life is to learn and grow.
The purpose of life is to help others.
The question is how would you like to help others?
Life and especially unexpected change you faced has allowed you to learn and grow, in many ways.
What meaning do you take from it?
In what way have you grown?
I once had a client who had faced a sudden case of mental illness forcing her into hospital care. During this time, she met amazing people she would never have come across in her everyday life. As she listened to the heartfelt stories of these people on their healing journey, she had a deep desire to help people like this in her career. She decided to move away from fashion and began to study as a counsellor.
How ever you decide to help others, do it in a way that is fun for you and you will never have to work a day in your life.
If you would like to explore your peak or how you can help others further, organise your FREE Discover Session, I look forward to catching up.
