How To Rescue The Passion You’ve Buried In Your False Beliefs

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”

— Jennifer Lee

One of my clients is writing a book that has the potential to help her clients and others live more vibrantly from within. During a coaching session, she told me how she needs to change her life to write this book.

She painted a picture of all the biggest things that demand her time and energy — having a mortgage (needing to sell her house to change that), having clients that need her (she’d have to cut back on her client hours), having five employees to supervise, having a child to support financially, not wanting to sacrifice quality time with her child. . . .

. . . the more she talked, the less possible it sounded to change her life right now so she can write her book.

Then she said the magic words.

“I don’t want to reduce my client work load. Working with my clients is my greatest passion.”

She continued to her next several sentences but I interrupted. “You just said the most important thing. Your greatest passion.”

I asked her to write passionately about her clients without expectation of where it might lead. She got excited. Suddenly, the book took shape in a way that wasn’t possible while she was focusing on everything but her passion.

Our call took place right before her self-appointed Wednesday morning writing time. She now had passion for the writing and knew exactly what to do. Plus, she had a small block of time (1–2 hours) in which to write.

That’s all she needed.

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”

— Oprah Winfrey
