Purpose has been a long winding road for me. I have been exploring Passion and Purpose for the past twenty five years. I am a Multipotentialite a term coined by life coach Emilie Wapnick. “A person with multiple passions, interests, jobs over a lifetime, and many interlocking potentials”. I was never lacking in Passion. I had so many passions and creative ideas and was often confused about which one to choose.
I came to realize that you do the best you can with where you are at any given time. Your business will change and grow as you do the same. However, there are some important elements to consider when reflecting on what is essential to ENJOYING what you are doing:
Creating balance in your schedule with time for you is the most important part of your business plan. For years I have been working full time and creating a business at the same time. You can take it one tiny step at a time. It has taken me years of planning before I was able to release other commitments. But all through the years, I took the time to commit to a spiritual practice every morning. This was and continues to be my lifeline for sanity, release and for connection.
You absolutely will get triggered and may second guess yourself and feel as though you may be using the wrong strategy or may be feeling that a certain challenge is too much to bear. Hold on tight and take a breath and then give yourself a hug. Get support and don’t beat yourself up. Your Gremlin and inner critic will rear its ugly head. That’s ok, see it for what it is. A primal protective device your mind-body as created to keep you safe. Say thanks but I think I’ll stick with my Voice of Wisdom. It definitely is a Spiritual Journey starting a business. That’s why I love it
