Ditch the Rat Race and Find a Career That Works for YOU with Mabel Bachini (HHR EP38)


"You need to create mental and emotional space to allow yourself to explore what could be instead of constantly being in reaction mode." -Mabel Machini



Are you tired of feeling trapped in a job that drains your energy and stifles your potential? It's time to break free from the rat race and pave your own path to career fulfillment. In this article, we'll delve into the transformative insights shared by Mabel Machini on the "Happy Healthy and Rich" podcast. Discover how to ditch societal expectations, embrace self-discovery, and embark on a journey towards a career that truly lights you up.

Unleash Your Potential with a Bridge Job

Mabel Machini emphasizes the importance of finding a "bridge job" — a temporary role that frees up mental and emotional space for exploring new career paths. Instead of feeling trapped in a job you hate, consider this strategic approach to gain clarity and energy for your next career move. By taking on a bridge job, you can create breathing room to evaluate your passions, strengths, and values, ultimately paving the way for a fulfilling career transition.

Rediscover Your Authentic Self

One key takeaway from Mabel's insights is the power of shedding societal beliefs and rediscovering your authentic self. In a world filled with expectations and norms, it's easy to lose sight of who we truly are and what brings us joy. Mabel encourages listeners to peel back the layers of social conditioning and tap into their innate skills and passions. By aligning your career choices with your true self, you can unlock a newfound sense of purpose and fulfillment in your work.

Embrace the Journey of Self-Discovery

Transitioning to a fulfilling career is not a one-size-fits-all process. Mabel highlights the ongoing nature of self-discovery and acknowledges that finding your ideal career path may involve a combination of light bulb moments and long-term exploration. Whether you experience a sudden epiphany or embark on a gradual journey of introspection, trust in the process of self-discovery to lead you towards a career that resonates with your soul.
