Last week, after my husband Greg read my article “Smart Women Are a Lot Like Rocket Ships,” he had an interesting question: He said, “Every week you write about the same thing–making your Big Idea happen, Reaching your Goals and Dreams, getting the right support, blah, blah, blah… when are you going to write about something else?”
Being a woman who encourages new ideas and new perspectives, I went to take a bubble bath (a nightly self-care ritual!) and reflect on his question.
In my work with women, the foundation is always around passionate and purposeful living. In order to live a life full of unlimited energy filled with passion and purpose, you will be making big things happen in y our life. You will be connecting with your Big Ideas, dreams and goals. You will seek and find the proper support to help you achieve your goals. This becomes a way of life for women who choose to live without boundaries around what they can and deserve to accomplish.
The challenge for me is that I know only a fraction of women in the world are living the kind of life I just described. It seems unrealistic to many women–not possible, not achievable. I think this is the reason I continue to write so often about this idea. I want to encourage women in every way imaginable that having a life that is overflowing with abundance is possible.
How about you? Is this something you desire? To create a life that is on purpose, both at work and at home, achieving those Big Ideas, Dreams and Goals? I know this is something that I desperately wanted in my life 10 years ago. I was searching for what might be next for me, what my purpose was, who could support me in g oing to the next level in my life. I would wake up most days with those nagging questions and the empty answers: “What do I want to do next?” “Who can I talk to that will be able to help me?” “What might be the next step to move me closer to my dreams and goals?”
Today I am living a high-energy, passionate, purposeful life but it was not by accident. It was through taking the right steps to find out what I truly wanted for myself (not what others might want for me), finding the right support to make it happen, and working with my support system to put a plan together that would result in a successful outcome.
I invite you to grab a pen and some paper, sit down, and ask yourself a very important question:
What do I want?
Not just what you need to get by or what other people think you should want. Initially, you might catch yourself writing something “safe.” “Safe” meaning it might be within your reach but it's not really what you truly want at your core.
So yes, Greg, I will continue to write about Making your Big Idea , Dreams and Goals Happen. I'm going to write about living a life filled with unlimited energy, passion, and purpose and all the blah, blah, blah. At least until I'm satisfied that more women are waking up to this lifestyle each and every day.
The first day of spring is fast approaching (only 9 days away!). Now is the time to plant the seeds for what you truly want to happen in your life and in your business. I’ll be here to support your Big Ideas, Dreams and Goals but first you have to plant the seed. You have to decide what seeds are best for you……
Anything is possible. Everything is waiting for you.
