The Practicality Of Following Your Passion

businesswoman-waiting-for-the-bus-picture-id1132089073 The Practicality Of Following Your Passion
You may tell yourself that your desires are silly and frivolous like ruffles on overalls or diamonds on a poodle.  They’re unrealistic. They’re ridiculous, at your age. They’re dangerous.  They’re self-inflated.  They’re ravings– not “clues” or signs. They’re distractions, not directions or medicine for your soul.  They’re a desperate mirage, not clear cool water at last, when you’ve been wandering in the seething desert.  Sure everyone wants to paint by the sea in Greece, but it’s not practical, you tell yourself.  But I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong. It’s not practical, in the typical mundane, grind yourself to death, factory worker, sense of the word.  It’s magical.  And let me tell you, what’s magical is practical on more levels than you know.  Let me introduce you to a few:

Passion is your Highest Potential of Financial Reward  
Consider that OprahBill GatesWarren Buffet and every multi-billionaire followed their passions.  They did not get rich by staying in soul-sucking, energy-draining jobs. They did not get rich by ignoring their desires, but by following them. They found their element.  Roses bloom when watered.  They shrivel in the desert. Passion is your highest potential of financial reward.  You’ll give endless hours to what you love.  You’ll demonstrate insane and unthinkable proficiency.  When you love something, you have infinite resources and energy.  You have more strength and talent than you know and our world is starving for true excellence.

I have a suggestion for you.  Start looking for examples of people you know or read about who do the work they love and make a living.  The mind is trained to look for what it believes.  If you believe “creative people starve” or “doing what you love will bankrupt you” that’s the examples you’ll see in the world.  You’ve probably heard the phrase, “what you focus on grows.”  Well focus on finding the evidence for what you really do want to see.  You want to see people thriving in the work they love. And they are everywhere my friend.  They have freedom, independence, stability, and pink cheeks.  They are role models to their children, instead of shadows passing by in the morning and night.

Why Smart Goal Setting Is An Absolute Must For The Modern Entrepreneur

Smart-Goal-Setting Why Smart Goal Setting Is An Absolute Must For The Modern Entrepreneur

Smart goal setting is an absolute must for people who want to succeed. Without clear goals, you will not have a solid direction on where you’re heading in your life.

For running a business, goals can help take your business to the next level, but there are different things you have to factor in.

The following are 3 tips for goal-setting for modern entrepreneurs.

1. Set SMART Goals

Set specific and measurable goals so you’re more likely to achieve them. One of the best methods of goal-setting is setting SMART goals.

Ensure that your goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bounded.

You have a better chance of achieving SMART goals than those that are vague, too broad, or don’t have a specific target date for completion.

If you not sure exactly how to start creating your own SMART goals, check out this complete guide to powerful goal-setting that is full of tips and real-life examples.

Finally, How to Live Your Dreams: Become an Unstoppable Warrior for Your Life’s Work and Desires

Finally, How to Live Your Dreams: Become an Unstoppable Warrior for Your Life’s Work and Desires Finally, How to Live Your Dreams: Become an Unstoppable Warrior for Your Life’s Work and Desires

The question I hear most as a career/success coach is HOW do I live my dreams?

How can I take what I love and turn it into a living, an empire, or a sapphire on the crown of fame? But I know that it’s not the concrete tasks that will unleash a destiny. It’s not about “sensible” actions. It’s the love and drive of “irrational” desire. I don’t want my clients just taking actions. I want these precious souls to take inspired actions. Here’s my answer to HOW to live your dreams: It’s all about the mojo.

Indulge me, as I quote myself from Inspired & Unstoppable: Wildly Succeeding in Your Life’s Work! (and indulge me—as a proud mother– as I tell you the book hit #1 on Amazon.com for Career guides!!)

“Here’s what I know from coaching thousands of creative individuals and visionary entrepreneurs. It’s all about the mojo. The mojo unleashes the electricity that turns a light into an obliteration of darkness and an act of God. Wild success isn’t about going through the motions. It’s not even about staying in motion. This isn’t about your legs. It’s about the light in your eyes, the fire on your tongue, and the sweep of your heart. When you’re bouncing off the wall with voltage and star power, and as long as your hair looks good, nothing can withstand you for long.”

So how do you get that mojo—you ask. Clever you.
You are hoping for the trail map, so as to get somewhere. But as your new paradigm shape-shifting mentor, I want to help you to tap an inner fire and forget about chalky projections and guides.  I want you to burn with desire—and then conviction. A fire will take you places that a map never will.

You are not looking for information. You are craving transformation. 

Someone could tell you “how to do your dreams,” and your brain will nod with comfortable satisfaction, but you won’t change a single strand of hair on the head of your life. You’ll tuck the workbook into your desk drawer, and you will stay barren and unmoved.  Let’s face it. You’re not looking to bake a sheet cake.

You’re looking to find a way to burst with joy and, finally, feel as though you can breathe, maybe as you have never yet breathed in this lifetime.  You will only really breathe when you believe in the certainty of the life that calls to you— more than the life you know. Everything else is pain.

The Moment You Stop Questioning…is the Moment You Start Creating

When you allow yourself to believe in your desire, you will be an unstoppable force for your life’s work.  You will have your people, those who emerge from the wood work to support you and those who clamor to have what you offer. You will know what to do because you will stop doubting the internal promptings you receive.  Yes, I know it sounds like Shangri-La talk—but it’s more powerful than that.

For me, I could only breathe– when I was breathing fire.

I urge you to follow your desires as though they are decrees from a higher authority within you. I have come to know they are. This is not a career path—though, especially in these times, it is the most likely way you will ever succeed in a career.  This is your soul’s goal and the purpose of your life. You will discover who you really are– when you follow what you really want.

To believe in your desire, is to walk on holy ground.  The poet Rumi said, “Why would you be content to crawl, when you have been given wings?”  Your wings are made of trust.

The End of Philanthropy: A Re-Vision

IMG_1482-1200x900

In U.S. history books, well-known philanthropists such as Carnegie and Rockefeller are described as generous and charitable. They donated part of their great wealth to good causes such as building schools and libraries. However, what is often overlooked in this version of history is that the very basis of their philanthropy was inequality. Their fortunes were built on the backs of working people, whose labor and minimal wages allowed those at the top to accumulate large amounts of money, which they used to build mansions for themselves filled with extravagant possessions. They gave a portion of their money to good causes. Meanwhile, those who were the actual source of their wealth often could barely afford to feed themselves and their families. This scenario continues today.

4 Steps to Take Action On Your Goals

goals
“It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well have not lived at all.” – J.K. Rowling.”

Did you know that 90 % of all New Year’s resolutions never get fulfilled? So if you’re ever found yourself on December 31st, wondering what happened to all of the big goals you set for yourself back on the previous New Year’s Eve, and why you’re not 
taking action on your goals, you’re certainly not alone.


So let’s look at what separates the 10 percent who DO achieve their goals from the vast majority who don’t?

The answer has everything to do with ACTION.

The people who achieve great success in life are the ones who are willing to take consistent action toward realizing their dreams.

They’re the ones who jump out of their seat to get the ball rolling — on the new project at work, the new skill they want to learn, or the promotion they want to get.

Igniting The Fire of Your Inner Desire

new-ideas-with-innovation-and-creativity-concept-picture-id692714766 Igniting The Fire of Your Inner Desire

Last week I had a true proud mama moment!  I flew to L.A. to attend the premiere of a series pilot that was created, written, produced, and acted in by my 25 and 27 year old daughters.  Although as a mom, I was pinching myself watching what they have accomplished, the truth is I am always in awe of people who start with a passing conversation or idea and then actually make it happen! 

Many of us have a great thought or a brainstorm yet it never gets off the ground or comes to fruition.  So when it comes to:

  • creating something from nothing, 
  • doing something you have never done before, or
  • putting yourself out there in a whole new way, 


What drives those who do versus those who just think or talk about it? 


What have they tapped into inside themselves that fuels their fire and carries their commitment


Answer???  Desire!


Desire is the most important catalyst for bringing about radical change.
