Hi! I'm Leith,
Finding ME was born out of pain.
For a long time I thought something was wrong with me. I was miserable in every job I tried. I tried different industries and different roles within each industry. I went back to school to broaden my skills with the hopes of discovering new jobs or industries (or anything) that filled me up and got me excited to get out of bed in the morning. I kept getting the advice “find your passion” but I had absolutely no idea how to go about that. I felt passionless, frustrated, depleted.
What did I do? I carried on doing what I was doing: chasing more promotions, more money and bigger projects to prove that I am smart, I am capable, I have something to offer this world. Isn’t life all about blood, sweat and tears?
You can probably guess how that turned out: shaky self-confidence and chronic health issues.
I got to the point where I couldn’t do it anymore; something had to change.
I asked for help. With the help of a life coach, I came to understand TWO major things about myself:
I had been subconsciously telling myself a story: success comes in the form of a corporate title, a high salary and external recognition. Without those things I felt like a failure.
I had my problem all wrong: it wasn’t the job or the industry or the advice I was getting. I didn’t have my own internal compass. I needed to develop my own sense of curiosity instead of looking outside myself - to industry experts or people I perceived to know better than me. What lit me up?
These patterns and stories dictated all my choices and led me from one unfulfilling job to the next. They kept me stuck.
Unlearning (or deconditioning) these thought patterns has taken a lot of time. Honestly, it’s ongoing.
Discovering this about myself has changed my life and I want to share it with the world.
Imagine a world where every woman woke up believing in herself, believing in her potential because she wasn’t limited by the thought patterns or stories she was telling herself?
Imagine that world! I do. Everyday.
