Rediscover your Passion

  1. 1. LP ?cL j?ZL IPP?9ù #BizHeroes Chat w/ @DJWaldow
  2. 2. Can PEOPLE pivot? HELL YEAH. I'm living proof. Been an email marketing guy for 10 yrs. Next up: Something TOTALLY different ~@DJWaldow
  3. 3. What are the “tools” of rediscovery. Is there a process or it is more free flow?
  4. 4. Tools of rediscovery? For sure. Again, add that to the what's DJ up to next #Teaser #CoachDJ That being said, it's a PROCESS. It takes time, but doesn't have to be years or even months. DJ Waldow @djwaldow Ask yourself, when did I last feel exhilaration or fear at a new challenge? Start there. Beth Daniell @bdaniell628 PLAN rediscovery - ask yourself what is important, use a tool that works for you, I do my 3 words inspired by @chrisbrogan Jo Miller @jm_grants In my case, rediscovering my passion has been a wild ride, which included a change of hemisphere and host culture lol Peter Woolvett @customerspecs
  5. 5. For me it's alone time, meditation, being outside with nature, hanging with my puppy, journaling and plenty of red wine. -:) Barbara Giamanco @barbaragiamanco It's a combination of flow and process that gives life to my creative passions. Jessica Roberts @connect2life The tools of rediscovery are courage, strength, and hard work. Create the path you want to walk. AJ Borowski @askwhatnext It's a process of self acceptance, and complete honesty, to ourselves. When opinions of others matter but ours matter more. Iva Ignjatovic @ivaignjatovic
  6. 6. How do we actually know when we’ve rediscovered our passion? (does the ah-ha lightbulb go on?)
  7. 7. You know you've rediscovered your passion when what you are doing comes EASILY, doesn't feel like work. DJ Waldow @djwaldow You feel it at your core! You WANT to do what you do - even when it is challenging and tough you feel the passion Jo Miller @jm_grants You know you've rediscovered passion when you look back and everything bad is far in the distance. AJ Borowski @askwhatnext When you find your passion, you smile. Not just on the outside, but on the inside. Chris Barrows @CBarrows
  8. 8. You know you've rediscovered your passion when you smile more often ... you laugh more often. Things come to you DJ Waldow @djwaldow I was just bursting with creativity. I was smiling a lot more ;) Jessica Roberts @connect2life When work feels like play, it's safe to say that you've rediscovered your passion! Madison Jones @madisonjoneshr Yes creates a new sense of confidence and purpose, people notice it too! Don't stop working towards your passion Michael Mullady @atlscgrad
  9. 9. Once we’ve rediscovered our passion, how do we go about maintaining it?
  10. 10. Re: maintaining your passion ... tune into Living Your Passion (podcast) to learn just that http://socialbutterflyguy.com/passion/ (PLUG! Ha) DJ Waldow @djwaldow Find people who share it and surround yourself with them! Always be learning! Beth Daniell @bdaniell628 Don't take your eye off the ball!! Keep doing one small thing after another 2 feed the vision. Give yourself some credit!! Jim Canto @jimcanto Keep passionate company. Cut out those who drag you down. Respect your limits - burnout is the ultimate passion killer! REST. Madison Jones @madisonjoneshr
  11. 11. Explore it, embrace it and enjoy it. Leave gracefully when you are ready for the next great adventure Peter Woolvett @customerspecs Keep sight of it and as I already said - YOU are the one who is responsible to undergo a change and to make decisions. Marta Neumeister @mne90 My passion is renewed by having ongoing impact on others Steve Woodruff @swoodruff I make this promise to myself - No one and no thing can steal my passion. I'm responsible for its well-being! Jessica Roberts @connect2life
  12. 12. What role does family, networks and your community play in the process?
  13. 13. Role of fam/friends - HUGE. If you are not passionate about what you do, it has HUGE impact on family/personal life. HUGE DJ Waldow @djwaldow It's very important - during the toughest times, I didn't have a support system..NOT easy...if you have one, cherish it! Jessica Roberts @connect2life No man is an island. It takes a village. All of that other cliche stuff has some truth to it. Thom Crowe @thomcrowe Remind me about what I am good--and bad--at. Confidants, coaches, critics and cheerleaders, helping me to be a better ME. Judy Gombita @jgombita
  14. 14. Without family, community and networks the fire of passion lacks fuel. AJ Borowski @askwhatnext Passion and those around you - be it family, networks, co-workers impact your passion - AND YOUR PASSION IMPACTS THEM! Jo Miller @jm_grants Very important! Cheerleaders, Mirror-holders, Butt kickers, helps you recharge Michael Mullady @atlscgrad It's good to have support but if I don't have it, I'll suck it up and do what I feel is necessary, on my own. Iva Ignjatovic @ivaignjatovic
  15. 15. You are four months into rediscovery. How’s it going, could helping people rediscover their passion be a new career?
  16. 16. Could helping people rediscover their passion be a new career? - Ha. Yes. Maybe. Well ... #CoachDJ (shhh - SOON) DJ Waldow @djwaldow I've been in rediscovery for 10 years now, love it. Not always easy but always wiling to share my experience. Iva Ignjatovic @IvaIgnjatovic Helping others, sharing our passion and seeing others find theirs. Just beauty Michael Mullady @atlscgrad YES! I have found that mentoring and coaching to help others rediscover their passion is part of my passion Jo Miller @jm_grants
  17. 17. It could: being happy by helping others do what you can't should be a satisfying irony Peter Woolvett @customerspecs There is no separation between helping othershelping ourselves. When we do the 1st, the 2nd happens always. Chris Cason @mbti_estj Even if rediscovering doesn't lead to a new career, helping others leads to joy is a great way to learn more about yourself Kelly Hungerford @kdhungerford 100% YES ... you are able to share experience and help someone to find his/her way Martha Neumeister @mne90
  18. 18. You wake up one day saying this isn’t my life!. How do we know if we are fed-up, burnt-out or in need of something new?
  19. 19. It starts w/ self-reflection. Are you passionate about what you do? Do you DREAD going into work (even on a Friday)? DJ Waldow @djwaldow By having goals and reevaluating them often you'll know if you're fed-up, burned out, or just need something new AJ Borowsky @AskWhatNext When there's nothing you look forward to except the weekend and getting home. Beth Daniell @bdaniell628 Was ready for new when I woke up and decided this is NOT how I want to live my life. I needed and deserved more. Jessica Roberts @connect2life
  20. 20. When you feel so full of things that just don't matter anymore, it's time to reevaluate. Kalynn Amadio @kalynnamadio A sense of (passionless) lassitude. Everything is just Too. Much. Effort. Judy Gombita @jgombita We are in need of something new when being fed-up or burn-out persists over time Alicia Rodriguez @aroru26 I think you know when you cheer that there are no appointments on your calendar and you don't care about setting any up. Barbara Giamanco @barbaragiamanco
  21. 21. What does it mean to rediscover passion? Does it mean doing something completely different with your life?
  22. 22. Rediscovering your passion is not necessarily doing something NEW. In fact, often it's doing what you've always loved/done DJ Waldow @djwaldow For me it meant getting back to what I always loved to do. Jessica Roberts @connect2life It can mean rekindling the fire you once had for something you love, or discovering an entirely new venue of excitement! Madison Jones @madisonjoneshr Sometimes we knew what our passion was all along and it just takes some time to reignite the spark again. @ThinkSem
  23. 23. Rediscovering passion doesn't have to mean doing something different it could just mean doing the same thing differently AJ Borowski @askwhatnext For me- it was checking my life against my values - realigning and ensuring 'I' was valued along with family, work, etc. Jo Miller @jm_grants It doesn't have 2 mean you have to do something completely diff-you may be burnt out need R/R or change ur perspective Sabrina @Plumlytics Sometimes you're simply on the wrong track, you need complete makeover, sometimes it's all about HOW to get where you want. Iva Ignjatovic @ivaignjatovic
  24. 24. Your motto is ‘Do what you love, Love what you do’. Can we rediscover passion without quitting a job or changing career?
  25. 25. Find passion w/o quitting job or changing careers? YES. But, my mom dad both did that. But for some QUIT is part of process DJ Waldow @djwaldow Absolutely!! Your job does not have to be your life. So many options out there to be found and love Michael Mullady @atlscgrad Passion is internal - it is possible to change your perspective to rekindle your passion Jo Miller @jm_grants We can do it by detecting just what we don´t love in our careers and changing all we don´t agree with, to positive choices Alicia Rodríguez @aroru26
  26. 26. Mentors, ppl who r fun in ur office, a new exercise program...all can help u rediscover in ur current setting! Beth Daniell @bdaniell628 Again not necessarily. Sometimes it's as simple as a slight shift within your industry. Anabella @AAMPTY There are ways to become more passionate about your job without quitting. + finding passions in life never hurts! Kathryn Kennedy @kontheinternet Yes we can. I did it. I love my job. I changed the approach and I choose empowering, passionate people to work with. Iva Ignjatovic @ivaignjatovic
  27. 27. Start-ups can pivot. Taking into consideration personal career labelling branding, can people truly pivot?
  28. 28. Can PEOPLE pivot? HELL YEAH. I'm living proof. Been an email marketing guy for 10 yrs. Next up: Something TOTALLY different DJ Waldow @djwaldow I think so. I went from engineer to marketer and found something new that I'm passionate about in my work! Kathryn Kennedy @kontheinternet Yes but often we need something to knock us over to help us pivot Michael Mullady @atlscgrad My pivot was a preceded by a screeching halt, then a 180, and a slow but steady process of getting to where I am now. Jessica Roberts @connect2life
  29. 29. I believe we're meant to pivot. We're meant to evolve. We should be learning new dance moves. Variety is the spice of life! Madison Jones @madisonjoneshr YES! I can't imagine not 'pivoting' in my career and professional life - I am up and down the court pivoting Jo Miller @jm_grants Personal careers are changing and people must learn updating their profiles continually Alicia Rodriguez @aroru26 Yes! Without pivoting, we don't evolve with our audiences. Change can be a good thing. @ThinkSem
