Do you ever look around at everyone else in your life and wonder how exactly they managed to figure out what they wanted, what they were great at, and how to apply it to become successful? Meanwhile, you’re daydreaming of quitting your job, selling all of your belongings, and moving to Paris to become an artist?

Or maybe a poet.

Or maybe a nutritionist.

Or, wait! Australia seems cool!

But could you build your tiny house in Australia?

And should you do that before or after grad school…?

If this is train of thought looks all-too-familiar to you, this episode is for you. Caytie kicks off with  three questions–questions that will either resonate with you, leave you nodding yes, or make you start crying because they are just too true:

  1. I see all these people who look like they know what the hell they want, and I don’t. What do I even do?
  2. I think I know what I’m good at, but how do I put it into practice?
  3. I think I know what kind of job I want, but how do I find it and does it even exist?

**Shameless plug here: If you’re nodding your head at Question #3, we have an answer for you. Check out our online course, You Can Love What You Do, to get eight weeks of coaching on this exact question. Spoiler alert: Yes, you can find the job, and yes, it does exist.**

This episode is packed with truth bombs and resources that will help you to listen to your intuition, explore your strengths, and ultimately find clarity. And they all start this idea:

You have to suspend the belief that you will know HOW you are going to get something.

I think I just heard an audible intake of oxygen from all of my fellow control freaks out there.

Becoming really clear about who you are and what you want isn’t an overnight solution; it’s a lifestyle. Listed below, we have all of Caytie’s favorite resources that she’s been collecting and using with coaching clients. Take a look, listen to the episode, and jump right in so that you truly can find the best next step for you.

Who knows? Maybe it’s in Paris.

Au revoir!
