Drug Lords or “Domestic Security”
Heather talks about an experience of personal growth that started with a unique fork in the road.
How can an email from a friend in the Mexican desert — swarming with danger, instability, and beauty — turn into the professional opportunity you never knew you needed?
Does it matter what the responsible thing is? Have you ever struggled with the idea that choosing the wrong path might lock you into something forever? Does it seem worth it to weigh the options between guaranteed security and a terrifying challenge? If you’re stuck trying to achieve personal growth, what you might be missing is the space to breathe.
Our work culture makes it difficult to find jobs that pay well, are challenging, and allow opportunity for growth. It’s easy to get roped into something you don’t really want to do. In this episode, we talk about navigating the forking road of choosing a career in an unfulfilling job market.
We discuss the power of having space to breathe, in developing confidence that comes from putting yourself in a situation where you don’t know what the fuck you’re doing, and using it as a chance to learn. Afterall, isn’t it amazing how when push comes to shove, we can really get shit done?
Even if we don’t have all the answers at the end of the adventure, the chances we have to know ourselves better is absolutely priceless.
