“You have to find places where you recognize yourself.” Victoria Moran

“There are no precedents: You are the first You that ever was.” Christopher Morley

“I’m not suggesting that you refuse to perform necessary tasks but when you have some say in the matter, you can save yourself from the spare peg-round hole frustration of activities that are antagonistic to your essential self.” Victoria Moran

We have all known people who adopt the interests and activities of the people around them until they appear to become a different person. We have also experienced the person who will agree to take on a project for which they are not suited at all and do a bad job of it while being grumpy. This is not the way to live a passion-filled life! Spend most of your time doing things that fit you, that give you energy. Does that mean we never try anything new? No! What I am saying is that life is too short to try to fit into someone else’s mold. It is time to find out what we love and spend our time there.

Coaching Questions:

1. Are you spending most of your life on things you are passionate about?

2. Are you trying to squeeze yourself into someone else’s idea of who you should be?

3. What will you do today that you are passionate about?

4. What activities do you need to say “no” to so you have more time to do what you love?
