“I had a successful career yet I knew there was something even more significant I wanted to do with my life.”


This was me when I hit the “halftime” in my career and personally. I had achieved success, titles, corner offices, bonuses, and the six-figure salary in a 22-year career but I knew there was much more to life. I also knew that I didn’t have the right partner to spend the next half with. ๐Ÿคฏ

I knew that I needed to serve at a higher level. NO that didn’t mean a higher title or salary. It meant that I needed to utilize my God-given talents to serve others and truly leave a legacy.

I knew I wanted to feel honored and loved. I wanted a life partner that I trusted and enjoyed being with, and that supported my need for service.

My halftime took place in 2013. Within a few months, I separated from my last corporate job, got divorced, and started my own business.

That transition took guts and it took strong mental muscles. It took me believing in myself and what God had planned for me. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿง 
Today, I feel blessed to have had that halftime awakening because I now get to use my talents to do work that fulfills meย while serving others. I get to share my life with a partner that I enjoy spending time with. A partner that loves and honors me. I’ve done more in the last eight (8) years than I did in 22 and the good news is that YOU CAN TOO!

Whether it be in your career or personal life, you’re in “halftime” when you face a transition that leaves you asking “what’s next?” Halftime is not determined by age but rather by stage.

You are in the halftime stage if you…

๐Ÿ’ฅ You leave work each night feeling stressed, deflated, sad, and uninspired.
๐Ÿ’ฅ You are no longer excited or challenged in your position or workplace.
๐Ÿ’ฅ Your relationships and physical health are suffering from the anxiety you feel.
๐Ÿ’ฅ You want to feel confident again.
๐Ÿ’ฅ You want to feel excited and fulfilled doing work that will make a difference.
๐Ÿ’ฅ You want to feel closer than ever before to God, your spouse, and your family.
๐Ÿ’ฅ You want greater clarity to redefine your goals, passions, and purpose.

If this sounds like you then this means that you are ready to venture and journey towards your life’s purpose. You are ready for greater significance!

Now you are probably wondering, okay, so what’s next? How do I move forward with this transition?

I am not going to lie, transitions take time but the good news is that you are not alone and there are many steps you can take to help you navigate this halftime. The first thing is to take action –ย Action Always Beats Intention!

๐Ÿ’ฅ Align yourself with other leaders making a difference in your areas of interest.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Keep moving forward – have faith that you will soon discover your next steps and take one action each day that will help you get closer.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Go back to your younger self and ask “what did you want to be when you grew up?” Listen to your younger self and write down what he/she tells you.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Go inward: think about what moves you, what brings you joy, and what you would want more of in your life. Then do start doing more of that.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Strengthen your mental muscles. Transitions take strong mental muscles, motivation, and peak performance. You’ll need to be dramatically calm and clear to create lasting change. The best leaders, athletes, and entrepreneurs have strong mental muscles. Yet 80% of people score below the minimum level of mental fitness required for peak performance and happiness. You’ll need to implement mental fitness to build strong mental muscles to help you navigate your saboteurs when they attack you.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Get someone in your corner that can help you. This could be a friend, an ex-colleague, a mentor, or a coach. If you hire a coach make sure it’s someone who works in this area of expertise and has some references.
If you find yourself in “Halftime” then I want to congratulate you. Take these steps and you’ll find that your second half can be even better than your first.
