You'll discover how to trust your inner voice, avoid sabotaging your future, and moving to career success in a way you never could before.

It is not a complete career transition course -- just focusing specifically on dealing with your current job while you look for your next career. If you've worked 5 or more years, the course will be especially meaningful. It may be less useful if you're on your very first job out of school.

Preview 04:58

When you're frustrated with your job, it's not unusual to find your friends and family are less than sympathetic. You may even have friends who say things like, "I've lived all my jobs." Or, "What doe it mean to hate your job?" What accounts for these differences? That's what we'll explore in this lecture.

Preview 14:33

In the 19th century - and even the first part of the 20th - people didn't question their jobs. You got a job. You did your job. Period. What's different now?

Introduction Part 2: Why More People Hate Their Jobs Now
+ Ten Things
10 lectures 01:25:33

How can you talk about your current job in ways that help you feel strong and powerful? We're not asking you to be chirpy and cheery "everything's great." You will be honest in a way that helps you move forward.

First: Describe your job in an empowering way.

This lecture teaches you a creative exercise that may seem woo-woo at first. If you'll go along, you'll find your creative juices flowing and you'll tap into your underlying feelings in a unique way.

#2: Picture Yourself Being Free

In this lecture you'll discover how to use your current job as a resource to reach your ultimate goals. It's not about positive attitude: we'll talk about realistic, down-to-earth ways to leverage your current position to reach your dream job.

#3: It's not a job: it's your Renewal University

It's easy to find yourself working for someone else's dream ... or the dream you had five, ten or even forty years ago. What's the dream that matters for you, today? That's what you'll learn to recognize in this lecture.

#4: Whose dream is it anyway?

Names have power. In many cultures, naming is a form of creation. You will discover how to put a name on your conflict and how naming gives you power to survive, thrive and change.

#5: Put A Name On It

When you hate your job, your frustration can reach you deeply and affect your entire life. This lecture gives you an exercise that's fun, but also extremely effective, so you discover a technique to protect yourself from negativity in the workplace. It's got a psychological foundation and most important, it works!

Thing #6: Put On Your Shield and Armor

Moving beyond gratitude to provide a strong experience of "joy" every single day in the workplace. Discover exactly how to do this -realistically - and why it works.

#7: Give Yourself A Gift Every Day

This lecture teaches you how to find support in your life - beyond your career - to regain your strength and develop the inner resources you need to move forward.

#8: Fall in Love With Something

When you're in a miserable job situation, your intuition can fall silent, stop speaking to you or even send misleading signals. This lecture shows you how to tap into your intuition, which can be your best career counselor. You'll learn how to interpret your own specific intuitive signals and create your own intuition key - personalized and unique to you!

#9: Make Your Intuitive Move

Just one thought to take with you. Write this on a sticky note and put it next to your computer. Read it every day and you will probably change your life and your career.
