HEY MUMS ...
What is that one thing that you can spend forever on and it not bore you?
If you had all the time, money, resources and connections, what would you be doing?
Often people will say I don't have the money, money is an easy one to fix if you are determined to get ahead. Don't let that be your obstacle, or another one is I can't I am busy raising my family.
These are excellent questions to ask yourself when you are trying to find out your passion in life. When something excites us a lot, we excel in it and we can never spend too much time doing it.
For the sake of your heart and soul it is well worth booking in a time slot to allow yourself to follow what you love. You matter too!!
Sometimes we have do to research, a great skill is to learn to put yourself out there, and ask people that are doing the same thing. Never be afraid to ask questions of someone who has mastered a skill that you would like to have. They might have some great advice and might be able to tell you some things to avoid or the things you need to spend a lot of time on. There has never been a better time to connect with like minded people, the internet gives us a chance to connect instantly to anyone in the world.
Enlist a support crew. If you want to do something different, get your friends involved to support you. Look around, who else could support you? Make sure your support crew is positive and has your well being at heart and doesn't have their own negative agendas. If the people are around you are negative and you want to break that cycle, then join a positive uplifting group online. Again, there are ways around the obstacles.
If someone in the world is doing what you are passionate about, hold a belief that you can too. Watch what they do, how do they do it? What do you like about what they do? What would you change to suit your own personal goals and your individuality?
Always have a dream, if it is in line with your values, it will be easy to follow through. You might give up on it, but make that a temporary break, and revisit your passion and then make ways to follow through again.
Create a dream board and put all those things on that you want to achieve. Make it colourful and visibly pleasing to you. Make that dream board something you love to look at. When making dream boards, you don't have to know how you will achieve something, you just have to have a vision and belief that you can, move yourself closer to that dream with micro steps, and before you know it, you will achieve your dream.
DO THIS WITH YOUR KIDS TOO, start setting your kids up to dream big and to get past limitations. I know I wanted my kids to go beyond my limiting beliefs.
You get one shot at life, you might as well give it your best shot and follow your heart and your passions.
