The Journey of LIFE!

Updated: Mar 13

My conversation with Chipochedu Phiri, The Talent Whisperer Podcast helped me share a bit of what my life and career journey has been thus far.

For the longest time, what I believed about the journey called life was that being good and becoming successful meant that;

Myth #1 - · You did not question the status quo. You towed the party line of social and cultural expectations.

Myth#2 - You made collective decisions on “ALL” matters concerning you.

Myth #3: You went into a perceived white-collar career, focusing on getting a 9-to-5 job.

Myth #4 - You worked for one organisation until you retired with either a gold watch or a copper /art picture.

Myth #5 - Creativity and hobbies are time-wasting activities.

Myth #6 - Self-care and Self Love is selfish.

Myth#7- Intentionality and wanting more in life is being ungrateful for the life you already have

Key Take-Aways

Over the last two decades, I have had to unlearn and relearn. I am glad that I rebelled against the above myths and perceptions. I have dropped and adopted values to align with where I want to go.

I take all of it as joy, and it was never meant to be a straight line. All our experiences, disappointments, ups, downs, delays and 360-degree pivots are just that! I have had to look back to process and connect the dots of my life, and it all does come together if you choose to allow it.

I have had an incredible core support system to cheer me on. I have also had professional help in the form of therapists, mentors, and coaches to help me make sense of the world around me and what I wanted for myself. I strongly advocate for positive holistic transformational change and self-development in the different areas of one’s life. I did the work, trusted the process, and lived 'Life' unapologetically.

To quote Steve Jobs…..“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You must trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down and has made all the difference in my life.”
