If you are like many of my readers, you need help getting
through the steps in Work with Passion and Work with
Passion in Midlife and Beyond. You are too close to the problem to be objective,
distractions can cause you to put off doing the assignments, and to give up when you feel overwhelmed. Or when you do complete
the exercises, you can't make sense of what they mean. Working with me
provides the structure that keeps you on track, and the insight into your situation that comes from four
decades of experience. My cilents tell me it is a relief to talk with someone who understands
the fear and self-doubt that are a normal part of the journey to passion, mainly the fear of poverty and criticism. There is nothing more rewarding than when
something I say or do helps my clients to break through these barriers to passion. Those Aha! moments make my day, my week and sometimes my year.
A word of caution: there is no quick and easy path to finding the niche in work that matches your values and makes
the best use of your strengths; if that were true everyone would be doing what they love for a living, and making money. You
have to be willing (or desperate enough) to make change your priority, and to persevere through the setbacks and delays that
test you along the way. Rest assured, when you are serious about letting go of everything that holds
you back from success, including self-destructive habits like procrastination and taking care
of everyone but yourself, you will find the work that makes your heart sing. And you will
earn a good living.
