You have those passions for a reason. That is why we are all so different and have different desires and needs. So, sit back for a moment and think about all of the things that you really love to do....more
Now that you have a vision for your life, the one that you imagined, and not the one that you currently see, we can go to the next step of WRITING the visual. It’s not enough to just have a mental image of what you want for your life, but you need to have something in writing so that you can see it. You cant build what you cannot see.
