For me passion for whatever it is I’m dreaming of makes itself known in very clear ways. Either I do something about it or I cannot stop thinking about it until I do something about it. That’s it. Passion propels me into action. Big leaps, little steps… whatever is possible. There’s a knowing that I have to do this thing, no matter what.
Take coach training for example: I’ve been dreaming about helping people for at least 25 years. First I thought I need to be a therapist to do that. Then I felt drawn to acting, because I could just sense there’s something in it I need to tap into. And while I was in Manhattan entirely on my own, facing many fears, taking acting classes – something really only passion could get this introvert out of her shell for – I started connecting… Oh. So. Many. Dots.
[Picture: me in Manhattan in 2014, the day before my first class at the William Esper Studio. Me, trusting my intuition and following my passion.]
Through all the trials and tribulations: I’ve been training to be a coach all my life. I’ve been coaching people all my life. The difference now is that I’m a certified coach and my intuition is paired with solid tools I can use in pretty much any coachable situation. But the learning started way earlier, and the passion was always there. It just had to grow to the point where I could not ignore it anymore – and off I went, actively pursuing my dream of helping my clients connect the dots in their lives, tap into that part of themselves that knows where they truly belong and how to show up fully in their lives.
What is your passion in life, and how does it manifest?
