Yesterday I learned ….
I spent a few months working 7 days a week sandwiched between two awesome vacations. What did I learn? What did I do with my next day off? What did I learn from that? How will my life be different from this day forward?
I have a big dream. I want to travel the world with my family, friends and future friends. I want to write about it. I want to inspire other women to live the same life, if they want it. That is it. When I think of this passion of mine, I get energized.
I almost salivate: my heart races; my mind takes off in different directions focused on the details of my life from all my senses, as if I am living that dream right now in this moment. I am traveling and exploring and writing and sharing with women around the world. This life is not only my dream, it is my reality. I am living my dream. I am there right now, in this moment.
In order to afford this life, I work a full time job (doing a job I love) and I have two home based businesses. One of the businesses is as a travel consultant. I assist people to live their travel dreams.
In my spare time, and I have lots of it …. (just like every one else), I prioritize my time. I listen to inspirational speeches, I read business tips from experts and I attend motivational speakers when I can. I practice creativity. I put myself in the path of learning all the techniques and “secrets” of how to live my dream.
There are people who are very skilled in some areas that I want to learn. There are some very successful business minds who have learned from experts and are happy to share this information. I am a willing and happy motivated recipient. I don’t just want to know how to do it, I want to know what to stop doing.
Of course everyone has the same number of hours in a day to accomplish the tasks that come with living. Not everyone gets the same results. Each person gets to explore and discover their own unique passion, and set a plan. What I have come to understand is that I love to do the tasks that I am good at and that energize me.
My job is to stick to my passion, my strengths, my genius, my play and give up doing those things that zap my energy and take from my life’s dream.
