This summer I moved from Santa Rosa, California above San Francisco to Olathe, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City to be nearer my children. That meant I had to release possessions, handle everything I own, focus on moving rather than my business, and then settle into my new apartment and find my way around my new city. Everything was about making choices. With every picture I hung, every drawer I filled I made a conscious choice to keep it or hang it. And that opportunity to make consistently new and thoughtful choices is still overflowing into my business. And I’m listening.
I’ve always been spiritual and I have a strong metaphysical background that is mixed in with everything I do. I have a radio show www.blogtalkradio.com/passionatelyonpurpose and I recently wrote a script for it called “Do You Believe You Can? And Why Not? As I wrote I thought to myself “This is pure metaphysics, not business.” I recorded it and got an enthusiast post from a listener saying “Wow, great show Cara, very inspiring.” Isn’t that what we want to do – touch the hearts of others and make a difference in their lives? I’m listening.
I looked over the number of listens to my various shows and the personal growth ones on stress and exceeding boundaries rated high. But then so did the ones on the sales cycle and energizing your business. I’m listening, but I’m confused.
So here’s the way I figure it. My work is a bit of both – the spiritual and the practical so sometimes I’m going to write about information products and marketing and attracting the people you are meant to serve, and sometimes I’m going to write all about the changes we can make inside. But it will always be about how we can stay Passionately on Purpose.
I love to listen to the messages from the Universe. The unexpected word from someone that triggers a new idea, the door closing in your face so you have to go look for a new one, the swelling of your heart when you get it right and are aligned with your choice. Are you listening? What do you hear? And what are you going to do about it?
