Pick One Thing, They Say

Jack of all trades, master of none. I’ve struggled with this my entire life! It’s difficult when you’re passionate about many things. After trying it my way for a couple of decades now, I can admit to myself that the saying is true.

Some of us only learn through hard lessons 🤦🏻‍♀️ We take longer to accept our limitations. I’m going to try and help you NOT waste as much time.

You can dabble in all the things you enjoy. But what is the ONE thing you gravitate to most? There has to be ONE thing you enjoy reading, listening to, and doing every single day. Really think about it because that one thing is a part of you. And not engaging with it daily throws you completely off. You literally live and breathe it.

Now that you’ve filtered out all the other many minor things, can you make money with your number one? I bet you can. People make money selling photos of their feet online! There are legitimate businesses around this space, and people have made thousands of dollars.

Brainstorm. Research all the different ways of others making money in your chosen passion. Can you create your own version of it? There are thousands of people in the fitness world. Each one of these people who’ve created businesses in this space is unique in their own way. One fitness trainer may vibe with her, but not him. How some deliver a message will resonate with you, but maybe not me. So don’t think of it as an overly saturated niche. There are billions of people in the world that haven’t tapped into all that is out there. And some people just weren’t ready then, but are now. You could be that person who helps guide them on their new journey.

The earth is large, filled with so many souls. The universe is abundant and just waiting for you to own your power and create.

The hardest part will be the in between. This is where most of the work comes in. Also, your best friend…self sabotage. You dread doing all the work that will be required because what if it fails? What if your social media pages have no traction? What if your courses don’t sell? What if no one buys your book? All the WHAT IFS are so damn loud, aren’t they?!!! I sympathize because I am also you. I’ve been there, done that. Furthermore, I also know time wasted will be your biggest regret.

So stop consuming so many motivational videos, podcasts, and books. Yes, those are all great educational tools. But don’t fool yourself into thinking it’s getting you closer to your dreams. ONLY ACTION will do that. The more work you put in every day will inch you closer. It doesn’t have to be hours of sweat and tears. It could be one habit a day that you start incorporating. I do a minimum of eleven squats and push-ups each day. Yes, eleven is my magic number 🙂 Some days, I do way more. But eleven every day is a must. Simple, right?

Some of us have demanding careers. A household of kids with a calendar filled to the brim. Can you find thirty minutes in your day still to write? To film a video? To paint? IF your dream means that much to you, I believe you’ll find the time.

Prioritize your dream. Your dream is your heart. Your dream is you. Whatever it is that dream may be, you have every right to pursue it. It’s not an afterthought. It’s not one day. It’s NOW. Setting small goals. Small daily habits. It builds momentum. Once you start to see results, how far these little commitments have taken you, you’ll want to do even more.

It’s like caring for a plant. Or even harder, like building a house. Both require constant effort, time, and attention to come into full fruition. This is why it’s important to pick one thing. Especially if the work involved to achieve the dream requires a tremendous amount of will power.

Remember, failure comes with the territory. It’s what you do after that will dictate whether you succeed or fail.

About me…let’s see….I would say I am a TRUE Virgo. If you knew me, then you would so agree. There are quite a few things I care deeply about. Off the top of my head, I would say with much passion, my family, friends, the environment and world peace. Oh and animals. Can't forget them. I think I love animals more than most humans, lol. I believe it’s important to surround yourself with good people. Be picky with who you let in your circle. The environment, the earth does not belong to us. We are merely just visiting for a period of time. So lets no abuse it. World peace, that’s a hard one. It’s not a perfect world, but wouldn't it be wonderful if every child, women and man were safe? We can’t change the world and every single soul living on earth. But one person can make a great difference in the surroundings in which they live. Wouldn't you agree? Let’s not forget what fuels my soul, music. It speaks for me when I can’t. It expresses my feelings when I am unaware of what they are. It has a way of lifting my spirits when I am down. It has this magical power that is able to touch my heart with just lyrics alone. I wouldn't know what I would do without it. Poetry, I love poetry. In all forms...written or spoken. I think that's it :) Wait, then there is God, the source of everything. Astrology, quantum physics, Abraham Hicks, Agape...I should just end this now, LOL.

Any thoughts?
