Today on the podcast, I’m talking about a conversation that I had recently with a friend of mine whom I have not seen for years but we occasionally talk on Facebook.
This time I called her on the phone. And as we are talking, we reminisced about our times in Kenya, which is where we are both from. but, we both now live in different parts of the world. We talked about how far we’ve come both personally and professionally. We both have 19-year-old kids who are in college and then we went out to talk about our careers and she told me how proud she was of me and what I’m doing in my career and my business.
I told her how proud I was of her and the things that she’s accomplished with her job. She’s a country director of the World Food Program in Cameroon, West Africa. The World Food Program is a UN organization that feeds the hungry in the world. Her name is Wanja. I asked her how she managed to climb up the corporate ladder to hold the highest position in her organization.
And what she told me was very much in line with what I tell my students all the time. She said that she had clarity of vision; that she knew she wanted to work for the World Food Program from the moment she started her career about 26 years ago.
That’s why I wanted to share this conversation with you because so many people are struggling with finding clarity both professionally and personally. And I was too.
I talk about this book that I’ve been reading. It’s called High-Performance Habits, by Brendon Bouchard, he’s a high-performance coach.
He says that clarity research, I didn’t even know that there was clarity research that, Clarity research says that successful people know who they are, what they want, and how to get it.
They know what they value, what their strengths and weaknesses are, what their goals are, and what plans they have to achieve those goals and that’s what I’d like us to talk about in this episode.
So pop in your earpods, grab a refreshment, and tune in!
