In the balmy night air, I was at the estate of an art collector in the hills above Cannes, France, watching two hundred beauty and press executives dance the night away for the international launch of Dior’s latest fragrance when a voice told me, “Claire, you don’t belong here.”
I was there because it was a part of my job. By outward measures, a very glamorous job. I had worked hard to get there and more than anything I wanted to feel the sense of belonging and joyful abandon that those people dancing were feeling. As I watched from my seat I smiled. Because instead of feeling bad about it, I felt an inner peace. I had been here before. Three years earlier I was also uninspired after working so hard to get the job I had. But the time before, I had blamed myself for what seemed like my inability to be happy. I had slogged through, then switched jobs in a failed attempt at a quick fix. The peace this time came from a deep awareness — I dared to believe that there was something out there for me, and that I would find it.
Today I get to work in the same industry, which I love, but in a role that suits me. Yes, It is possible to get excited about work again — and to feel in control of your destiny. I have lived it myself and I have worked with hundreds of professionals to do the same. Change takes commitment, and deciding to change is not easy. That’s why I am offering you two small steps to help clarify if the moment is right for you.
