In my work as an executive career coach, I meet many people who think they need a career change. They’ve been successful, however, they are now at a crossroads for a variety of reasons.

Positive affirmations ain’t never hurt nobody. But inaction has. I wish I could tell you how many times over the years I’ve tried “speaking it into existence.” I’ve made proclamations to the man in the mirror or to a close friend, which resulted in a “[Hell] yeah!” or “Go be great.” Then I’d swagger away — enthusiasm and endorphins flowing — intent on taking the world by storm before falling into old habits like tv and t...
