Objective of this Mental Strength Tip:
To help you realize that no matter where you pay-check comes from, you are really self-employed and that the only security you have is your ability to reach peak performance at your chosen field of occupation.
Let’s Get Started:
There’s a belief that if we have a corporate job we’ll have job security. We think “I’ll be secure if I have a good-paying job.” Well, if you know anyone that has been fired, laid-off, or downsized you know that this is not true. Yet, so many of us want to play it safe, not even considering it’s us who are really reasonable for our own security.
We let our fears guide our decisions rather than taking risks and following our bliss. When you have a job, you are at the mercy of your employer. You may be laid-off with your entire department or fired because a superior doesn’t like you. It will be random and out of your control. True security comes from striving for and achieving peak performance whether you’re employed or self-employed.
Top performer’s are always in demand.
Questions to Uncover Beliefs about Mental Strength Thinking:
- Is there a psychological advantage to seeing yourself as self-employed?
- How much control does a self-employed person have over their life?
- What empowers you more; thinking of yourself as being employed or self-employed?
Unsupportive Beliefs about Self-Employment
- Self-employed people have no job security.
- Self-employment is risky.
- Self-employment is for people without a family or other responsibilities.
Mental Strength Beliefs about Self-Employment
- We are all self-employed in one form or another.
- Self-employment means leasing your professional services to another person or organization for a fee.
- The self-employed are 100% responsible for their results.
- Would an employer prefer you to see yourself as employed or self-employed?
- What do you know about self-employed people?
- If you believe you were self-employed, would you work more or less?
- If you believed you were self-employed, would you experience more or less stress?
- If you believe you were self-employed, would you spend more time thinking about how to improve your job performance?
- If you believe you were self-employed, would you be more or less concerned about work-life balance?
Mental Strength Coaching:
Often when money is involved, people want to “feel safe and secure.” A solid job seems to be many people’s main goal. However, some companies hire and fire employees with the bat of an eye. Although this is scary, it is the world in which we live. Becoming a valuable asset to an institution may not be a choice if we want to keep our jobs or advance. If fear of losing your job is driving you to become indispensable, then you have a good outcome even if you have the wrong motivator.
Here’s why. As I already iterated, job security has changed. Staying with the same company for forty years is unfortunately a thing of the past for many. Job security in today’s volatile market often means something entirely different: the only true job security is our ability to excel at our profession; this will assist in getting work in the unfortunate event of a downsizing.
This isn’t to say that we shouldn’t be loyal to our employers but, and again to emphasize, we must focus on our results and achieving peak performance. This can come easier when we think of ourselves as self-employed.
If you find yourself stuck in a job that you don’t enjoy or in a company that isn’t fun to work for, the first step to making a change is asking yourself, “How did I get here?” Your being here at this time in your life is not a random event. You have made choices and decisions along the way to get here. Your individual journey has led you to this exact point. And you are not broken. You don’t need to be fixed. No one is to blame. You have made choices based upon beliefs that you have held. And beliefs are nothing more than thought habits. They are ideas that you have thought over and over again until they became a belief. Like an old record, you may be stuck in a groove or a belief that no longer works for you.
So, before you decide to leave your job or company or make any change, it is a valuable exercise to pause for a moment and examine your beliefs. If you don’t take the time to do this, you will make choices based upon old beliefs and end up in the same place.
In working with my coaching clients, I find that there are five key beliefs that led people into a job that does not bring them joy. I will outline them here.
