A few weeks ago I saw an article on Tiny Buddha's site talking about being a Multipotentialite . My first thought was something along the lines of "What the hell does that word even mean?" Once I started reading the article, I realized how much I connect to that word!
My whole life I've been considered a "dreamer" or as having "goal A.D.D." I get this idea in my head, I run with it for a short period of time and then I move on to my next crazy idea. I always thought I was just unmotivated or didn't know what I wanted from life.
This article made me realize that I am not alone and that there are actually a lot of people who have the same problem I do. This article explains what the core of the issue is and how to handle it flawlessly, but what do you do when you're ready to root down and find the one thing that you're truly passionate about?
I'm currently in the middle of this journey. I've learned so many different skills in life because of how quickly I move on from hobbies. But now I'm ready, like most of you are, to settle on one thing (or a couple) that I can fall in love with and do for the rest of my life.
I've said it before, but I'm not a 9 to 5 type of girl. I'm a free bird and my wings are feeling clipped right now! So what are we going to do to root down and focus on our passions? Well, I'm glad that you asked!
Get a pen, get some paper, and write. Write out exactly what you want out of life. Be as specific as possible. Not only will this make your passion more clear, it will become sort of like a manifestation letter to the universe.
Having your dream written in front of your face gives you a clear vision of what you want. That way you can plan accordingly on how you want to get there. Do not be afraid of sounding "greedy". What you want is what you want and you should never feel bad for wanting to achieve that. No dream is too wild and no goal is unattainable.
Now that your passion or dream is literally in front of your face, get another paper and do two things with it.
1. Figure out your why. I wrote a blog post on the importance of asking yourself why. You can find that here.
The reason I'm telling you to find your why is because if you feel strongly enough about why you want this dream to exist, you'll believe in yourself enough to make it happen. If you have a weak why or don't understand the reason for this dream, you're more likely to let it fizzle out and go to that dream graveyard a lot of us create!
2. The second thing I want you to do on this paper is curate your game plan. How are you going to make this happen for yourself? What steps are you going to take to make sure that this dream becomes reality. Be specific!
This paper can be as neat or as messy as you need it to be. Just make sure that it is clear and that you have gotten your point across. Keep these papers somewhere safe. My manifestation is always in my wallet. I don't see it everyday, but it is always with me everywhere that I go.
Like most things in life, you will know when you are ready. The timing will feel right and you'll trust in yourself enough to know that you can make anything happen. Your potential is unlimited and you are never too young nor too old to make an extraordinary life for yourself.
You just have to believe in your dream.
What does your dream life look like? Give me a brief description in the comments below!
