Follow your passion: It’s the only way to be passionate
Good morning to you all the way from Amritsar, India where I’ve just spent my first full day here! If you want to follow along on my journey while I’m abroad in India for the next 3 weeks, I’ll be posting photos along the way over on my IG feed here.
Many clients come to me knowing they want to make a change in their lives, but they’re not sure exactly what it is they want.
Have you ever felt that way? A vague sense of unease, unrest, dissatisfaction? I know I have!
About 7 years ago, I knew I wanted more from my life.
- I knew I didn’t want to continue working in my windowless government cubicle.
- I knew my relationship was never going to be what I wanted it to be.
- I also knew that I needed a major mindset shift.
So I started running.
Not running from my problems, mind you.
I started training for a marathon.
It was this simple act of following a passion, that helped teach me one super-important lesson.
Passion is infatuating.
When you have a passion (whether it’s for a career, or a hobby or a new goal), it can be an all-consuming pursuit.
It can also open up your eyes to new passions all around you.
So if you’re struggling with that same sense of unease, like I was, I encourage you to commit.
Commit to something. Something you’ve been wanting or longing to do.
Don’t do any of that half-in half-out BS. Commit to it all the way.
Not sure what to commit to? Here are some ideas to consider.
- What is a lifelong hobby you’ve always want to pursue more?
- Or a bucket list item you’d like to cross off? (You can find some of my items for inspiration here.)
- Or a cause or an organization you want to volunteer for?
- A goal that’s eluded you in the past?
If you know you often resist (or sabotage) your own best intentions, put in support structures sufficient to your level of resistance.
For example, that may look like hiring a professional so that you’ll have the accountability in place you need to succeed (like a professional coach, or a personal trainer).
New year. New passions. New possibilities.
Let’s make 2019 yours,
P.S. Respond now and tell me what new passion you’re pursuing in 2019. I would love to hold space for your passions

The Possibilities of Cycle Tracking for Your Business and Life with Laura Kline-Taylor
In a previous episode of the podcast I shared how it took 37 rejections before I finally landed my first client. That first client? Laura Kline-Taylor Roethel – which is why I’m beyond honored to have her on the show this week. Laura is a Life & Business Coach who specializes in supporting women who are spiritual entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial spirits who are interested in keeping motherhood powerful while remaining career driven. In our conversation, Laura is sharing her expertise of cyclical living and how this has created major shifts not only in her business, but in her life. Her teaching on this topic has endlessly grounded and motivated me and I hope it does the same for you.
