This week I would like to start our conversation by thanking Ms Linda C Clemons for hosting a wonderful event a few weekends ago in Indianapolis. It was a dynamic event with Table Top discussions and gifted speakers. To all my Sisterpreneurs in the room, OH-My-Gosh, it was just so much fun to meet each and every one of you.
Every time I go to an event, I arrive with the expectation that I’m going to meet someone or have a conversation that’s going to touch me or change the way I look at things.
One of the conversations I had at this particular event, was on the topic of Influence and how it affects our mindset. I asked myself “Who am I truly spending my time with?” I was really looking to see if I was putting myself in spaces, situations and relationships, that allow me to grow.
Have you ever experienced a time in your life when you know that you have the opportunity to expand, grow and reach a new level of success in your business, or benefit from a new opportunity? Did you take the opportunity and do the work required? Or did the moment pass as soon as the emotion of the experience start to fade?
Have you ever asked yourself, “What am I passionate about?”
This was a question I asked myself 12 years ago. At that point I wasn’t really clear on what I was truly passionate about. What I did know was that I was tired of what I was doing at that time. Going to work every day became hard and arduous. I really wanted to feel excited again. I wanted to feel fulfilled. I wanted to feel joy and passion in my life again.
One of the things I was required to do, was to ask myself “What has me be and feel passionate?”
