Ignite Passion For Work Life In Five Steps

 
No matter if I’m coaching or facilitating a seminar, I like to encourage people to find power in self-reflection. I believe that if you can to match your talents and skills with your passion, you become unstoppable. The recommendations to follow are probably the most important steps you will ever take toward profitable success. 
 
1. Identify your skills and talents. In my experience as an educator, many adults admit they have forgotten their passion. Sadly our educational institutions don’t emphasize this concept enough. I’ve see first hand how some students reluctantly trade their natural talents for a certificate or degree they don’t believe in. If your story is similar don’t worry, many of us are guilty of neglecting what we love to do for what we feel we must to do. Take a moment today to write a list of your skills. Skills are learned over time and eventually become something you do well and with little effort. You might find this list useful in determining your skills http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples-of-skills.html  Talent, on the other hand, is one’s natural ability. While writing your list, it may occur to you that you have some natural talent but if you struggle to recall, then draw your attention to your youth. What could you do so well that time seemed to stop? Recall what you loved to do before family members or society dictated what you needed to do in order to make money? It is great to know that skills and talents are learned and can be improved upon.
 
2. Enhance what you have. Do some research, go to workshops, find a mentor, find people who are doing the same thing that you would like to do and then practice, practice, practice and practice some more. Before you know it, you will arrive at step three.
 
3. Use your wildest imagination to create a package and brand yourself. This step has proven to be the hardest for most people because of conditioning. However, you are required to really stretch yourself  to think of the impossible. Let’s face it, if you thought it were possible, you would be doing it already. 
 
4. Find your audience. While studying for my MBA in project management and marketing, I found it common to recommend that people identify their audience before considering a marketing strategy. However, what most text books fail to tell you is that even the most expensive marketing plans miss the mark to attract your audience. Sometimes, your audience has to find you. Consistency will help them find you. There is one thing for certain, no matter your brand, there is always someone out there who at best needs you and better still others who would appreciate what you have to offer. Here’s a word of advice don’t ever think that your talents and skills are worthless. If you do, you will be the block that is in your way.  Here’s what I know to be true. Your skills and talents match with your passion will make you unstoppable and you can quote me. Speaking of which, I recall seeing a quote by Maya Angelo which said, My passion in life is not merely to survive but to thrive and to do so with some passion some compassion some humor and some style.

Overwhelming Obligations Do Not Have To Be Fun Suckers

OVER 30 SOMETHINGS FORGET TO PLAY

By

Felesha Love

What has happened to us? Remember when we use to look forward to Spring Break and the anticipation of much needed time to break up the monotony, let your hair down, join friends or family for fun and sun. Most adults with heavy responsibilities and commitments forget to take unofficial breaks. Our obligations have conditioned us to limit ourselves to national holiday vacations if we are lucky. Some companies give their employees a hard time even when the time is accumulated. The under tone here is simply guilt. The surmounting guilt often result in hidden resentments, passive aggression and limited productivity. Now a days, companies dictate what is considered sick leave and create inconsiderate policies making it difficult for employee’s to claim. Sometimes a day or two away can provide the right amount of mental health time to reclaim clarity and focus required of most valuable employees.

Time is a precious commodity and yet we live lives that make us feel unworthy of enjoying it. When we turn 30 something and beyond, we forget to have fun. What’s up with that?  When was the last time you took time out for yourself? During the week, I look forward to a time that I call “Lazy Sundays.” It’s a time to let go, reset and stop to smell the roses. I like to do things that I don’t have opportunity to do in the midst of obligation. Sometimes my “Lazy Sunday” falls on a different day but my point is the quality of time demonstrated. I suggest that you try to be spontaneous and follow your heart and not your mind during this time. You’ll find yourself eating in bed, cuddling, surfing the web for exotic and interesting locations and reading and listening to broaden your perspective. Your heart will take you places that you tend to drown out during an average work week.

Consider that some of the above mentioned are not luxuries but necessities to your well-being. Here are a few more, get a massage, take luxury bubble baths, go out for a gourmet dinner or find a recipe and cook your own, walk in nature, listen to music, visit a lake or art gallery, reach out to people that lift your spirit, move your body and look for opportunities to feel and give love. I made some recommendations just in case you are one of those people who remember to take time away but have a hard time letting go. Unplug! All electronics have their place but not on vacation. Designate an hour to handle business and check calls and emails but then unplug.

I think Europeans have it all figured out as far as work-life balance. The CDC tells us that the average American work environment requires employees to work longer days, have less vacation time and later retirements all in an effort to streamline the workforce. Did you notice? Everybody is complaining about being overworked. Where do you think stress comes from?
Stress comes from an imbalance of obligation and pleasure or working too hard and forgetting to play. Why not learn to balance your life now so that you are less stressed. Don’t wait until you are complaining or irritated to take the time to take care of you. You are the only one you get!

IN HER EYES: The Chronicles of Domestic Violence

The Suicide Note

In her eyes, I see the fear of being judged, ridiculed but worse of all is the fear of being misunderstood. She’s standing dead center in chaos all in the name of love.  She’s made a choice to keep her family together. Yet this single choice has commanded resistance from everyone who knows her story.   


In her eyes, I see a longing to feel his loving arms around her, providing  reassurance that everything is going to be alright. She is desperate to know that she has made the right choice and that her sacrifice is not in vain.  I hear the fear in her voice as she conjurers the courage to ask for help. 

Today she is fishing for the right words to explain the turn of events. He text-ed a suicide note to their closest friends explaining his feelings of betrayal after learning that she left him like a thief in the night. In confusion, she questioned her actions and his motives all at once.  She asked, Why would he involve our friends and upset them? Fighting back her tears, she looked at me with gripping regret. Crippled by fear of rejection from friends and family.


I see horror in her eyes as she contemplates returning home and expecting the worse. He has threatened to do harm to himself before she said. What if he was doing it again. Wait, I told her. First, report the suicide text messages to the police. Let them check on his safety since you fear he could be manipulating you to get you alone.  Police made contact and reported him to be ok. He achieved gaining sympathy from her support system of family and friends. In her eyes, she is the one who is betrayed.

Retreat from outside influences that derail or distract you from your highest good. Get quiet. Meditate and reflect daily in silence, and allow yourself to commune with divine healing energy. Begin the process of forgiveness by first forgiving yourself, and in time, you’ll gain the spiritual strength to forgive the people who acted out archetypal roles in your life. The forgiveness is not for their benefit but for yours.

Mismanaged emotions can distract us from our goals if we use them to make decisions; they can cloud our ability to understand circumstances clearly and objectively. If we don’t learn to read our emotions properly, they can work against us by keeping us from achieving what we most value. This is a hard reality check. If we look at our responsibilities, roles, beliefs, and values and own up to them, we have freed our mind, body, and spirit and given ourselves permission to heal and grow. Freedom means never having to take the same path of fear because you have achieved understanding and growth from the experience and you recognize the warning signs much earlier than the last time.
