Are you looking for steps that help you go from hobby to passion? Do you need to stay productive?
Does sitting around waiting for things to happen to make you antsy? If yes, nice to meet another antsy person. I always knew I was different because while most people just take down time for what it is, I, on the other hand, must fill it in.
Here are 3 action tips for the motivated mom to get started today. These will get you moving towards the void you are trying to feel.
You are not anxiously jumping from project to project because you are bored. It’s because you have not found the thing that full fill and motivates you.
You just not any person, you are purposeful, inspirational and meant for greatness. I am sure you felt it. The feeling when you know you should be doing more. The reason you are here today is not by coincidence; you have purpose and intention. The intention of making things happen instead of waiting for things to happen. Besides, all you need help with is finding a clear path so you can get started.
Action Step 1.Create Your Ideal Life (Passion & Purpose)
Easier said than done, right? I am sure there are so many things that you’re passionate about and help others is high on your list.
That’s fine, but you have to start with one focus then you can later incorporate others.
If I had it my way I would be a motivational speaker, teen counselor, organizational product designer ( I have so many designs that need to be created), oh and did I say life coach. But, starting with step 1 has made things much easier for me to stay focused.

I choose eight categories, but you can make what correlates to your life.
Here are a few posts to get you started with your goals.

I know…doubt a way of eating at your ambition. But guess what.

Trust me not everyone feels that nudge in their gut like you do. You know you know what I’m talking about. You feel it because you’re special!
