For the next 4 weeks, instead of our regular Clarity Gems, we’re doing something special …
We’re giving 4 of our biggest, most crucial lessons to you when it comes to figuring out your passion in life.
It’s all a part of our #PassionFor100 mini-revolution, which we started to celebrate the fact that enrollment is now open for the Passion Plan Virtual Experience.
It’s a super affordable coaching program meant to help you figure out your passion in 30 days or less … and the first 25 people who enroll are getting it for a way reasonable price ($199 instead of the regular $269).
The price will go back to normal early next week, so come join us if you know it’s time to stop procrastinating and start getting un-stuck.
And now, Rachel’s going to share the first lesson in the 4-week-long #PassionFor100 series. It’s one of her biggest secrets when it comes to finding passion:
LET’S SAY YOU SECRETLY WANT TO BE A SUPER FAMOUS ACTRESS.
You love the idea of recognition, expressing your creativity and love of performance, and getting paid really well for using your talent.
But you’ve written that off as a pipe dream because come on. Who actually makes it as an actor, let alone a mega-famous one?
You could have taken a shot at it, but you’re not exactly thrilled by the prospect of eating ramen noodles for a year straight, living in a crappy apartment, and getting rejected on a daily basis. So, that’s it for you getting to do what you love.
Guess you’ll have to settle on a second-best thing. You’ve got a degree in marketing, and you don’t hate marketing, so you’ll get a job doing that. You might not feel as passionate about it as acting, but it’s probably more realistic.
YOUR PASSION IS A FEELING, NOT A “THING.”
Acting is a “thing.” It’s one profession, out of probably millions of professions you could choose in the world.
If you hang all of your hopes of passion on the acting “thing,” then you don’t get to be passionate if you’re not an actor. Which kind of blows, yes?
Here’s where so many people, probably including you, have gotten sidetracked:
It isn’t necessarily the acting that you cared about. It was the feelings that you thought being a famous actor would bring you: Recognition, creativity, expression, and the thrill of performance.
FEELINGS ARE HOW YOU DEFINE YOUR PASSION IN LIFE.
That so-so marketing job probably isn’t going to make you, the would-be-actor, feel anything close to recognition, expression, or performance.
But there are so many other things that could make you feel that way. Maybe it’s not the “actor thing,” but what if it’s … the motivational speaker thing? The influential blogger thing? The event planner thing?
If you define your passion by a title or a “thing,” then you’ve always got to have that “thing” to fulfill your passion in life.
BUT, if your passion = a set of core feelings that are unique to you (like recognition, expression, performance, creativity), then all of a sudden the world opens up. There are infinite possibilities. So many “things” have the potential to make you feel how you want to feel.
LET’S DEFINE YOUR UNIQUE CORE DESIRED FEELINGS.
Helping people figure out their own set of “Core Desired Feelings” is what we’re doing during Week 2 of the Virtual Experience.
If you don’t know how you want to feel, let alone what you’re passionate about, then come join us. We’d be honored to have you as one of “The Passionate 100.”
And quite honestly (and because I’m blunt & confident, by nature): You’re not likely to find this mix of powerful, easy, life-changing, & inexpensive coaching again (well, at least ‘til we do this again in 2015).
Remember, the first 25 people to enroll are getting it for a crazy-good deal, and enrollment ends on September 27th.
Let’s spend 4 weeks figuring this out, together.
