It has been an interesting couple of weeks at school. There are seven in the class and each of us has gone through a stage of being overwhelmed. The first two weeks were pretty much all introspection. Things like the Myers-Briggs and True Colours that I mentioned in a previous post, but also workshops on Stress Management; Entrepreneurial Self-Worth, Personal Vision Statement, Self Esteem and the list goes on!
In each case we had to examine ourselves, to be truthful to ourselves in who we really were, and I confess, there were tears. There are some places I did not want to go. Then when one of the instructors pointed out something she appreciated in me, well, I lost it. Do any of you find it hard to believe there are others that appreciate you? For yourself? For just being you? Wow, who knew?
One very exciting moment for me was when I realized that it was my art that I wanted to make a business plan with. I realized it was my passion and now there is excitement in getting started with the plan. I still want to “skip to the end” but also really want this to work for me so back to school on Monday, or in this case Tuesday!
What is your passion? Have you ever considered making it your business?
“Passion will move men beyond themselves,
beyond their shortcomings,
beyond their failures.”
