In our goal-obsessed society, we can get so focussed on strategizing and striving that we lose sight of the WHY behind our goals. Enlightened ambition is about setting goals that actually feel good and tweaking or tossing the ones that don’t. It sounds so simple, but it’ll change your life.
Enlightened Ambition is a chapter of Careergasm: Find Your Way To Feel-Good Work, a hot new book about finding your way to feel good work by Sarah Vermunt. Sarah helps people set goals for their careers, but first shows them how to drill down and find out what they really want.
Ambitious women everywhere are feeling frustrated and burned out. A more empowered way of living (and working) is to get really intentional about your ambitions, pursue only the ones that are in alignment with the things you want most deeply, and ditch the rest. Living like that, with enlightened ambition, creates hyper focus and makes magic happen.
We need to press pause on the frantic doing and step into stillness so we can get clarity around what we actually want — what’s worth working towards and what’s not. That’s empowered living.
Because diversity makes communities richer and helps them thrive, Sarah has donated the proceeds from this event to sponsoring a Shecosystem Membership for a woman from a marginzalized or racialized population whose participation in our community would benefit all of us! If this sounds like you or someone you know, write to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Careergasm Scholarship” and let us know a bit about you, your business, and why you should be a part of this thriving Shecosystem.
