7 Talks to Listen to Before You Exit Your 9 to 5

I remember so vividly one night I am sitting at my computer, after a long working day and suddenly a TEDTalk with Simon Sinek comes up on my screen.

Talking about artificial intelligence! Spooky stuff to be honest. So I listened for around 20 minutes and immediately a light bulb comes up in my brain. I’m so excited that I had to share it with my husband. He probably can’t remember this chat but this talk really marked me to this day.

I was hooked by the title: “People don’t buy what you do, people buy why you do it”.

This is how Apple actually communicates its mission and vision:

Everything we do, we believe in challenging the Status Quo. We believe in thinking differently. The way we challenge the Status Quo, is by making our products beautifully designed, simple to use, and user friendly. We just happen to make great computers. Want to buy one?

I use this concept with my clients to explain how to design their group program content by focusing on these 3 questions:

  1. Why does your client want to achieve the outcome?
  2. What will help them along the way?
  3. What benefits will they get in each program session/module?

Here are some more talks to listen to before you exit your 9 to 5 so that you can harness some inspiration and give you the boost to fire your annoying boss:

It’s not as scary as it looks –Β Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone | Yubing Zhang | TEDxStanford

We never go after what we want. We construed a million excuses before we make the decision to quit our mundane corporate life. I know I did. It literally took me about 2 years to make a decision to leave. This is why I want to listen to Mel Robbins and she is going to help you find out WHAT YOU WANT in the simplest way.

Listen to these questions from Oprah Winfrey and watch this 5 minutes video then seat comfortably in nature and journal about the following:

  • Who am I?

  • What do I want?

This next lady started her speech singing and she definitely capture her audience.

Knowing when to quit | Sarah Weiler | TEDxNewnham

Now, here’s a person that I truly admire and his talk really resonates with my story and the reason why I quit my 9 to 5. I wasn’t truly passionate about what I was doing. I wasn’t following my purpose and my soul was being crushed. Until the day that I wrote my resignation letter and handed it to my manager. I felt like a weight had come off my shoulders and I was free again.

Find your dream job without ever looking at your resume | Laura Berman Fortgang | TEDxBocaRaton

Quitting your “comfortable” 9 to 5 is not an easy decision to make. But oh man, when you do it’s totally liberating. It can be scary and exciting all at the same time but very emancipating. You are saying YES to yourself. You’re putting your “wants” first not what you’ve been taught to believe.

Ask yourself these 3 empowering questions:

Who do you want to become?

What is most important to you right now?

Where do you see yourself going forwards?

Let me know below in the comments what are your thoughts. Writing it down helps to externalise what you really want from life. That way and when you see it in black and white, you start to visualise the true essence of what you want. In case you want to further explore this “Quit Your 9 To 9” opportunity, I would love to have a call with you and help you take the LEAP.
