“Embrace the struggle. Certainly if you’re in the career coaching business and you’ve got to sit across from somebody, how in the world are you going to have anything worthwhile to pour out to them if you’ve never struggled?” - Ken Coleman
The first step toward a dream job is always the scariest, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Today’s Finding Brave guest shares how something he calls “The Proximity Principle” can help you achieve what you want in your career, by finding the people who are doing it and spending time in the places where it’s happening. And he explores what most people are missing, or struggling with, when it comes to their mindset that prevents them from tremendous success. Ken Coleman is a #1 national best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio host of The Ken Coleman Show. Pulling from his own personal struggles, missed opportunities, and career successes, Coleman helps people discover what they were born to do and provides practical steps to make their dream job a reality. The Ken Coleman Show is a caller-driven career show that helps listeners who are stuck in a job they hate or searching for something more out of their career. His second book, The Proximity Principle: The Proven Strategy That Will Lead To The Career You Love, was released in May 2019.
Not only does Ken reveal how to put yourself in a position to realize your career aspirations, he covers so much more in this episode. He explains why developing your listening skills and also embracing the struggle are so important, how to face and conquer your fears, as well as the specific mindsets that he has seen in the thousands of successful people he has spoken with over the years.
