    4 Tips To Keep Your Passion Alive in Work & Life!

    Periodically Ask Yourself:

    1. What made me fall in love with ___________ in the first place?
    Make a list and actively appreciate those things.

    2. What is something new I can fall in love with now?
    A new hobby or skill set, a friendship, an organization, an interest?

    3. What can I eliminate that might be blocking my passion?
    Unresolved problems, negative people or forces, long-term upsets, low-value time-suckers, lack of organizational or leadership skills?

    4. What most excites me in life?
    Oprah Winfrey said “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”

    Give yourself permission to explore your passions; the more alive you allow your passions to be in your life and your work, the more rewarding your experience will be!

  2. The Help: A Movie Masterpiece of Courage

    My husband, Richard, and I saw the recently released movie, “The Help” yesterday afternoon. Not only were we both blown away by

    The Help

    the story, the Oscar-worthy acting, the humor, the authenticity to the 60s in set (did you, too, notice the Charles Chips cans?), clothing and music, and the pathos, but we were brought up straight in our seats by the power of the movie’s (and the book’s) basic theme, that of courage. Of moral courage. Of courage in the face of dire consequences, including possible death.

    It made us think . . . in our modern day everyday lives, when are we called upon to muster giant-size courage? What decisions do we make in our lives and work where we can tap into our courage to take the road less traveled, the unpopular path? And by doing so, what changes, moderate or monumental, can we bring about?

    No only did we leave “The Help” satisfied by a movie masterpiece, but exhorted to dip into our own storehouses of courage to make things better.

    Get thee to “The Help!”
