Your Action Plan For Achieving P3 Status

Guest Post by Sharí Taber, CEO of The Peak Performance Group, Inc.

If you’re like the majority and aren’t experiencing this trifecta, sharpen your number 2 pencil and let’s get started!  You’ll be inspired and encouraged to evaluate where you are and where you are going, against where you really want to be.

Would you say your career completely allows you to serve your purpose and passion?

If you are one of the lucky few, you’ll agree, as well, that your passion is being served as well and that when you receive your paycheck, you simply shake your head because you can’t believe you are being paid to do what you were born to do!

If you are not in a position where you are serving your purpose and passion, you’re probably saying, “Serve me up some of that, please!”

Having been in the personal, professional and organizational development field for 30 years, I feel qualified to say that those who are not serving their purpose and their passion within their career will never reach their fullest potential or feel completely fulfilled in any associated area:

  • Earnings,
  • Growth,
  • Fulfillment, joy and contentment,
  • Career,
  • Spiritual,
  • Community,
  • Integrity, or
  • Impact potential

P3 Status

It’s no wonder we think it’s a fairytale that one could actually enjoy all three at exactly the same time!  If you are in your twenties, it’s unlikely you’ve experienced it and even more unlikely your mother could have set an example for what it was like to have it.  If you are in your thirties or older, you likely had to “decide” it was possible, kicked family tradition to the curb and trekked out on your own to achieve it.

Let’s face it, ladies; if this is what we want, we’ll be among those setting the example.  It’s pretty amazing that in the second decade of the 21st century women are still paving new paths.

What does it mean to be serving your purpose through your career?  It means that the work you do or the impact you make aligns with your sense of purpose in this world.  Regardless of your religion, spiritual beliefs or absence thereof, nearly every individual has a sense that they have a purpose for being on this earth.  Unfortunately, most never spend purposed time discovering what that is for them.

If you’ve ever felt dissatisfied with what you are doing in life, but can’t really pinpoint the source, perhaps it can be traced to an unfulfilled purpose.  Are you serving your purpose every day?

What is Passion?

Passion results from being engaged in an activity or activities that energize you or “juice” you up!  Passion is empowering.  When you are executing activities related to your purpose, passion bubbles up naturally.  When your career is built around your passion, you’ll never feel as though you are imposing on a prospect that possesses indicators of the absence of your solution.  You’ll never feel the kind of exhaustion and frustration that you’ll feel when your activities are simply executed for the purpose of a paycheck.

When you are serving your purpose in your career, your earnings potential will skyrocket – whether you are an employee for someone else or you are a business owner. “Life-purpose” driven passion stimulates an emotional connection from others to your message and goal.  When your career serves your purpose, the energy required to pursue goal related objectives is naturally high-octane – greater impact with less effort.

If you understand this principle, you also understand that the energy required to pursue goals in a non-purpose-centered career lacks high-octane, high impact results, joy and fulfillment.

J.O.B.  The Enemy of P3 Status

A career that does not impact your life-purpose is nothing more than a J.O.B., which is an acronym for Just Over Broke.  If you are working at a J.O.B. that is not a purposefully positioned transition into a purpose driven position (PDP) – you’ll always be Just Over Broke.

By identifying where you are one JOB vs. PDP scale, you can define the gap and create a plan to close it.  Take the P3 Gap Analysis.

Identifying Your Purpose

Do you know what your purpose is?  How to identify it?  How to create a career that serves it?  If not, my Purpose Profile will help you gain that clarity.  The Purpose Profile helps you gain clarity about your Purpose and provide clarity around where you are and where you need to go from here.  Take the Purpose Profile.

Paycheck Profile

It’s not uncommon to have scored in the 90 percentile on the P3 Gap Analysis and not be receiving the paycheck you want.  Oftentimes, I speak with people who are serving their purpose and working in the field they are passionate about, yet not earning at their potential.  We discuss the reasons for this in the Purpose, Passion and a Paycheck Workshop, hosted by eWomenNetwork’s Success Institute on June 21.

In the workshop, we’ll discuss how to identify and serve your purpose within your career and how to create a plan to make it happen for you!

My Paycheck Profile identifies the strength of your career growth plan and uncovers the gap between what you are currently doing to maximize your earnings potential and what you could be doing to maximize your earnings.  Take the Paycheck Profile.

In the June 21st workshop we will identify strategies to improve your paycheck and your earnings potential.
