Life More Abundant!

Hey you!

I was recently reading and was stopped in my tracks yet again by the bible verse “I come to give you life more abundant”. I think everyone wants an abundant life. The dominant culture really tries hard to convince us that the way to an abundant life is a bigger bank account, even though research has clearly proven that acquiring more stuff just doesn’t work. Nevertheless, a lot of us are still chasing that carrot.

I think an abundant life is about how we live life. The abundant life is a juicy one. One where we strive to fill every moment of our lives with more joy, fascination, passion, and presence. None of these states have anything to do with acquiring more money and buying more things.

When we find ourselves feeling depleted (the opposite of abundant) like when you’re stuck in a dead end job, it’s really hard to feel like you’re living an abundant life, let alone figure out what the next right step to your dream job should be. However, if you start noting then doing the things that fill you with more joy, fascination, passion and presence you will begin to feel more abundant and from that beautiful state you will be riding the frequency that you need to get a breakthrough. This abundant rather than depleted state will propel you to the next right step. So, let me know, how are you going to create a more abundant 2019? Let’s chat about it in the comments below If this is an area where you think you need some support, don’t go it alone, sign up for a free coaching session now.

All the very best,

[VIDEO] Roadmap to discover your professional calling!

Hi there,

The #1 question I get asked from my clients goes something like this "I know I’m at point A Tajan feeling stuck at this job I dread, and I know I want to get to Z doing my meaningful work, tell me what is involved in moving me from A to Z if I work with you". So I’ll answer that question for you in this video, I'll outline the exact A to Z process that I use on my retreats that I'll be teaching at my Ignite Your Passion: Live Your Calling retreat this September in Jamaica.


 Let me know if you have any additional questions around what the roadmap looks like to get to career nirvana in the comments.

Wanting more than a roadmap...take a closer look at my 2018 retreat in Jamaica go to www.liveyourcallingretreat.com and set up a discovery call with me today to explore whether or not this might be a right fit for you.

All the best,


Top 3 Career Assessments for your next career move



I must confess that I'm not a big fan of career assessments in general, especially when they are used as the primary source of information to inform and direct your career transition. However, if I had to choose three assessments that can be used in addition to rigorous self-inquiry and coaching to support your career transition the three below are the ones that I would highly recommend and I give you my reasons why.

  1. Strengths Finder This test is build on 40 years of research and is based on 34 common talents (strengths).  For $20 USD this test can tell you what your top five strengths are. These strengths can inform the kind of career you should be in where your strengths are actually allowed to shine. Strengths Finder encourages you to focus most of your time on playing to your strengths in your career and life rather than killing yourself to improve upon weaknesses. One of my top strengths is Restorative  which means I'm exceptionally adept at dealing with problems, good at figuring our what is wrong and resolving it. This is totally true for me, I love complex problem-solving, which is a big part of the reason why I love coaching.
  2. My Next Move O*NET Interests Profilerthis tool helps you identify where your career interests lie across six interest areas. It then shows you career paths that might feed those interests based on your scores.The results section even has the option to search different careers by how much preparation is necessary to get into them and much more. I think if you want to get some big picture clarity on ideal career pathways for you then the O*Net summary report can be a helpful place to start.

  3. VIA Character Strengths Test. This test is available for free, it's easy to take and identifies your core characteristics or best qualities and is based in a lot of rigorous research. Their studies show that  if you’re not using most of your top 5 characteristics at the workplace or if you're at a workplace that is not in alignment with your characteristics/values, you will be highly likely to be unhappy, even miserable so understanding what your core characteristics and values are is very important. This information will allow you to ensure that you emphasize this in your current job, promote these qualities as you interview for new jobs, and ensure that jobs/careers you're exploring share your values and will allow you to use your best qualities. My top 5 are- Appreciation of beauty & excellence, fairness, forgiveness, gratitude, and judgement (weighing all evidence fairly).

So try out one of these assessments and let me know in the comments what it was like for you to see the results. If you're needing more support to help you navigate a career transition, sign up here for a FREE consultation

Also, feel free to share this email with a friend who you know is suffering at their job currently and could benefit from this content.
