To Quote a Quote or Two.


Last month, Jeanne White once again asked me to fill in for her as guest host of her radio show

Connect with Jeanne White


It was because of this request, that I had the pleasure of interviewing Jamie Ross of Fat Cat Design; a web and print graphics design firm and Maryellen McCarthy-Rogers of Tree Frog Marketing; a PR/Marketing communications firm on 95.9 WATD.   


During that interview Maryellen and Jamie not only shared their businsess announcement and information, but also they shared their personal stories and some fantastic advice, that included a couple of quotes that I want to share again here.  One quote was by Havel Vaclav and goes like this: "Vision is not enough, it must be combined with venture.  It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs."  The other quote was by Confucious and goes like this: "Chose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life."

From Vision to Venture.

When I think about both of these quotes, I can't help but smile.  If more people lived by these two principles the world would be a much happier place. 
Combining vision with venture is a major part of what life coaching is all about.  Looking at different areas in your life that you want to achieve some goal or see different results, is step one.  Step two involves looking at possible ways of making the things you want to happen, occur.  The hardest part of the process is often step three, which is putting those possibilities into practice to see what works.
Too often, people let go of their dreams and desires because they don't think that they know where to start or where they will end up, if they go for what they want.  It seems easier to sit back and continue dreaming, or come up with great plans and not follow through, because there is no real risk involved.  The down side of that type of thinking is that one day it might all catch up to you, and when it does you will find yourself filled with the pain of regret. 
What visions have you been putting on the back burner or burying deep within yourself.  Isn't it time to get the venture part going, so that you might realize your dreams.

Love your Job.

Can you imagine what life would be like if everyone chose a job that they loved.  If you are going to spend 8+ hours a day doing something you might as well be happy right. 
So what are the benefits of enjoying doing something that takes up 1/3 or more of your day?  The first thing that comes to my mind is that there is a much better chance that your happiness will spill over into the rest of your day.  Think of the impact that your positive attitude would have on the people around you.  If you have a positive impact on them then they will not only spread the joy to others but also they will reflect it back to you, which would only boost you even higher.
If you are not currently employed doing something that you love it might be time to start thinking about what you would do if given the opportunity.  In the meantime maybe you can find at least one small aspect of your job that you enjoy and start speading the happiness based on whatever you come up with.  Do this until you decide to seriously look for opportunities to have your dream job or career.
