My True Desires

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Before I start, let me just apologize right now.  This post will mostly be a non-edited post on my feelings and what’s been going on in my head lately.  So everything might not flow smoothly, nor have a rhyme or reason – and is completely out of character of my regular posts, but just bear with me! It’s only one post!!

Right now I'm definitely experiencing some growing pains.  Though – I’m not really going through pain.  I guess it is just the term I’m using, but really – in this moment, I’m finding myself.  These last few days I’ve really been digging deep within myself.  I have been trying to compartmentalize all of my thoughts, ideas, wants, wishes into an organized manner so that I can see the bigger pictures of what I want in life.

Quite honestly, I feel much better – getting this out.  The path that I started with my consulting business really started to become much bigger than I could handle – geez there is so much information out there on the interwebs (and so much to offer), but then I was able to bring it back down and define what it is that I want to offer.  So that’s great and everything.  There is a ton of work to be done prior so that it can run the way I want it to.  Though I should have a launch date so that I’m accountable to it, I don’t have one right now. What are you gonna do??

Next, I am dealing with my true desires.  I will never forget what the head professor of the Finance Department at HPU told me.  He told us that if we want to live a good life doing what we want to do, to find a way to make passive income.  His way definitely wouldn’t have been my path – as I can’t even remember what that is now; but it has been stuck in my brain since he’s said it and that is the path I’m pursuing right now.  I think I've finally figured it out (I'll let you know if I did!) how I'm going to do that.

And in character to my being a self-proclaimed idea guru – the idea I’m pursuing isn’t even one for me, it was an idea that I came up with for my boyfriend to do through a conversation a year or so ago.  Go figure.   

So my consulting type business take a little vacation while we get this other idea up and running (passively) so I can pursue my own entrepreneurial passions, which still is my consulting business and ultimately helping others.  Thing is, you can’t help people if you haven’t helped yourself, right?!

I can’t end this blog post without bringing it home to you and at least giving you something to ponder on, so tell me, what are you REALLY wanting out of this life?  Not your passions or your hobbies.  When it comes down to it all – what do you want to be doing??  I want to get out of debt and be set up financially, part of that through passive income.  I’m eager to hear from you what you want so leave a comment below!!

  1. ooooh! you really hit the nail right on the head there. ive had the exact same dream since i was 16 (homeschool a gaggle of kids and own a little boutique in the neighborhood i grew up in), and thats just NOT going to happen until we can get some MAJOR passive income going on. keep up the good work, i cant wait to see what youve got up your sleeve!

  2. I would love to be rid of my student loan debt and be stable enough financially to travel on the regular. I need to learn more about this passive income thing.

  3. One of my true desires is to work with young people for the rest of my life. I love connecting children of all ages. Currently I am working hard to make this happen, and am excited for the what I am learning and what the rest of my career as a teacher will reveal to me.

  4. I'm so happy to know you and I are on the same page!!!

  5. Check out Pat Flynn on twitter. Seriously light bulbs going off in my head right now!

  6. Oh - you know the other day I was browsing pinterest for help on visual teaching aids for my nephew and came across a ton of teacher blogs and that looks like such a fun (yet majorly dedicated) job, so kudos to you!!! Keep at it girl!

  7. I want to find a job that enables me to have a more balanced life so that I have more time to travel, and as a result, help me to become a happier person.

    Wishing you all the best at achieving your goals!

  8. me too! im so glad i found your blog on accident!

  9. Good luck with your goals!

    One of my desires is to be able to share my writing with others, whether it be through traditional or self publishing. I will be happy with my writing even if it doesn't get out into the world and that's the number one thing for me when it comes to writing, but books have been so big for me and have touched my life that I would like to be able to do the same with my passion for the written word.
