Don’t force your passions to pay for your living

Don’t force your passions to pay for your living

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” – Elizabeth Appell

We have so much untapped potential. Living unfulfilling lives, in denial of our passions and skills. Playing it safe

For many years, I sat on my calling. Thinking it wasn’t worthy enough to pursue. It was easy to push that voice away…until it wasn’t…

But what do you do when you realize the life you’ve worked so hard on building isn’t right for you? 🙅🏻‍♀️

It’s not easy of course. Here are 5 simple steps to get started:

1️⃣The first step forward is to stop fighting that feeling: Instead open up to it. Quiet down the external noises and tune in

2️⃣Let that voice lead you to your curiosities. Be open and explore. They might guide you to unexpected hobbies, new friendships or even a whole different career path. But don’t try to steer it, just listen and play. You don’t need to have all the answers or know the ‘hows’, the ‘whats’ right away

3️⃣It doesn’t matter how old you are, what skills you have. There is no timeline for fulfilment. What makes your soul soar is different than what makes mine. Even if it’s similar things, our paths will be completely different. So notice the resistance, what is it saying? Remember your fears are not facts

4️⃣Don’t force your passions to pay for your living: Yes, it’s nice to support yourself by doing what you love. But it’ll take time at the beginning. As you figure out what you enjoy and are passionate about it’s best to keep the added pressure and stress out of the way. A passion can be a hobby as well! And then eventually things will fall into place!

5️⃣There are no dead ends: Just like the saying by Bob Ross “Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.” Take it one step at a time. No endpoints, no attachments. Be submerged in the process

So tell me, what is your soul fire aching for? 🔥
