Your life-work and your work-life: bringing the connection alive

When surveys report that a whopping 75% of us are unhappy at our jobs, the connection between our life-work and our work-life is badly broken. What would it feel like to be working the job of your dreams? Pretty good, eh?

You are here to share your unique gifts and talents with the world (and the rest of us are here to enjoy them). The origin of the word genius comes from the Romans who believed that everyone is a genius: everyone has innate, distinct, special and unique characteristics and qualities. Your genius is your natural abilities and spirit, your true self. 

Martha Graham, the great modern dancer and choreographer, put it well: “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.”

Bringing your true self to your work can be difficult. Unfortunately, we’re trained from childhood to think we’re only as good as our work product or our paycheck or the size of our corner office. Uncoupling your self-worth from your work or your art opens your heart and invigorates your genius and creativity. You’re worthy and deserving of a good life just for being who you are right now. You’re here to bring your genius clearly and directly into the world.

Here are fully activated and power-packed affirmations to bring alive that connection between your life-work and your work-life.
