You have permission to be a multi-passionate because it absolutely drives me bonkers to just focus on one thing!
We are not one-dimensional – we are people with multiple interests and quite dimensional in a wee hexagon kind of way. I don’t know if you feel this way, but for me, focusing on one thing would lead me to not have an interest in that one thing. I need multiple projects, businesses, hobbies, and activities to keep me feeling alive and seriously harnessing all that I love.
We need to explore different things, do the DIY, do the exploration and learning to see what we like and what we don’t like. Years ago, I went to college for an accounting agree, something I am good but what I am not good at is sitting in a cubicle and being an employee.
I started my first business, selling my handmade creations – not just one thing like crochet items, but multiple handmade things by me because I love to create like wood burning and occasionally painting and making jewelry.
I have some mad skills because of this because I taught myself how to build websites in WordPress – I am techy this way … and I am so good with that. I can learn just about any program in a matter of a day or so.
I also got myself a master’s degree in counseling because I love the brain, love learning how it works and specialized in cognitive behavioral therapy because your thoughts influence your behavior and vice versa and I use this modality in my coaching.
In 2019 I rebranded and launched The Rebels Den where I get to talk about all the things I am passionate about while also helping and serving people launching their ideas into reality.
Here’s the thing, you can be multi-passionate while focusing on one goal at a time and still do all the things you want to do. The thing about this is that you CAN absolutely own your passions and make them happen, you just have to find your flow in it all. And I want to invite you to the 30 days of Action Challenge with daily accountability and support of getting things done.
