Looking For A Change?

I know a lot of moms my age (40ish) who are looking for a change. Either they have been away from work with kids and are looking for something to do to make money, or they are just sick of their job and are looking for a career change. I talked to one of my friends yesterday and it seems to be the same concept everywhere I turn... "I want a change, and I want to do something with purpose." It's something that happens without question once you have been a mom for awhile and your kids are finally at school all day.
The problem is most people just don't know WHAT they want to do next and are waiting for something to pop up.
I asked my friend yesterday "What do you WANT?" because she was applying to random jobs and although she is a talented woman with many skills, nothing had panned out and she was feeling bummed. I did not get a clear answer.
I asked her "Did you really want to work long hours for $10/hour at that gym?" She said no. And rightly so... with her experience, she should be doing something much bigger than that. Her vision was to find a job that would pay well and give her a sense of purpose, a way to give back in some way, and to really make a difference.
The problem is that those things are hard to find. I mean, who doesn't want that?
The good news is that you can CREATE anything you want in life, you do not have to go looking for someone else to give it to you. (and then be bound by their rules and regulations as with any normal 'job'.)
Knowing what you want is the first step to getting what you want. If you are clear on what you want, you can actively take steps every day to getting it. The key to finding your purpose in life, is to decide what is important to YOU, and what you want exactly, and then to create it.
The hardest part is deciding what you want. But if you think back to your childhood, or look deep inside your heart, you will find it somewhere in there.
Here are a few questions to help you zero in on what you want and in what way you would like to make a difference:
1. When do you feel truly happy?
2. What are you good at? What courses have you taken, what skills or knowledge do you have? What do people compliment you on or tell you are good at?
3. What charity or group of people would you like to impact? In what way and how?
In order to decide what you want, it is important to really still your mind and allow creativity to flow. There is a genius lying in every one of us. It may take some time to find it but when you do, you will be able to decide exactly what you want and to formulate a plan to achieve it.
We all have a genius within us, and with the right mindset, you can do anything you want in this life.
Just decide what you want, make a plan, and do something every day to work for it. I guarantee that if you want if enough, and you feel it is important enough, and you are consistent in your efforts, you WILL achieve it.
So stay open to change and open to the endless possibilities that you are 100% capable of, and when the flow happens, go with it.
Personally, I have decided to grow an online business and help others do the same. In the end, I want to give to the under-privileged children in my town. I work at local public schools from time to time and I have fallen in love with all the kids. But I see a lot of sad circumstances, especially around Christmas, and when everyone else is supporting poor kids in third world countries, I would like to support the ones right here. I am committed to a minimum 3 hours per day to my business, and 30 minutes a day of personal growth and development, and am currently doing a 90 day challenge.
My challenge to you is to decide what you want, and then do a 90 day challenge yourself. That means working on whatever your new business is for 90 days straight, and to committing to total and complete focus during that time.
