The dreaded question... ‘So what do you do?’
For so many years I struggled with the abundance of ideas and options that flooded my mind...
Which ones should I follow?
If I honour one does it meaning dropping the others?
How will I tell people about what I do?
Ahhh, now I need another business card...
Which email address should I send this from?
I’m confused about who I am so I’m pretty sure other people are...
It resulted in confusion and overwhelm and feeling like I was scattering my focus so thinly and not really achieving anything at all. My confidence suffered and I cringed when asked the dreaded question: ‘So what do you do?’
Very recently all that changed when the missing piece of the puzzle fell into place.
An awareness and simplicity came into view and joined up all the dots that had been there all along. The common thread that tied everything together.
I am a coach
I am a writer
I am a designer
I am a firewalking instructor
I own a health food business
BUT above all of this...
“I help people experience ALL of themselves”
If you are a multi-passionate person feeling stuck and scattered by ideas and options you want to pursue. You don’t need to ‘pick one’ and drop everything else to achieve success.
Rise up and look at the bigger picture. Join the dots that have been there all along.... what is your core desire that connects the seemingly unconnected?
Focus on that place, serve from that place.
It’s your gateway for your clients to connect with ALL that you are, so that they can become ALL they they can be.
I call this the ‘The golden thread’
A fundamental core belief or set of values, that weaves through the essence of our lives and makes life most meaningful for us.
It could also be called our mission statement.
To articulate it in words gives it greater clarity and power. It brings the mission to life, beyond a ‘feeling in our heart’. It allows others to connect to that feeling too. It allows us to feel most connected to our purpose.
Connection is key. If we can’t articulate it, we don’t have a voice. If we are not able able to put words to those feelings keeps us small, holds us back. We lack direction in life without that clarity.
