A possibility is defined as a thing that may happen or be the case.

It may happen or it may be the case.

If we want it to happen we have to make it happen.

Case in point, my daughter is a Track and Field thrower. This means that she throws Discus and Shot Put. Shot Put is about using a very specific motion to help you to throw a heavily weighted ball as far as you can. In competition a women’s weighted ball is 8.8 pounds.

Discus is about throwing a weighted Frisbee as far as you can. Again very precise movements are used.  Her discus weighs ten pounds.

Why do I tell you all this? Why is it so interesting?

Because my daughter is the smallest girl on the team. People look at her and do not believe her when she says that she is a thrower. The coach was even surprised when she came to tryouts  but it was what she wanted and she was not afraid to try.. and so she did… and she made the team.. and she won first place in  her last competition and has now been invited to Invitational’s.

She threw that 10 pound discus more than 69 feet.

REALLY anything is possible.

Sometimes though things do not work out as we wish. We try something and we fail. But did we fail?

NO… a failure is really just one step (ok maybe a few steps) away from SUCCESS. If we never fail then we will never succeed!

And so I encourage you to look for the lessons. There is always something to be learned.

Sometimes we have to look back so that we can look forward.

Perhaps you are looking to start a new business, or you already have a business but the message is not clear. Either way taking a look back can help.

Look back at everything that you have ever tried. Make a list of what was a smashing success and what was not. Take the list of things that did not work out as planned and figure out why, look at where it fell short.

Was it poor planning? finances? Were you just not that into it?… Think about  the common thread between any jobs that you have had or any volunteer work that you have done.

1.    What positions did you really love and flourish in? Why?

2.    Which positions did not nourish you? Why?

This is important information and will help you to move forward as the amazing, successful and powerful woman that you are.

In answering these questions you will begin to gain focus on what really nourishes you and makes your heart sing.

In this is your future.

If you take a job, or open a business, that does not excite you then you simply have… a job.

If you embark on a career that excites you then you have a passion.

Passion will make you excited to work the long hours that are necessary for a successful business. It will make you more than willing to go the extra mile. Passion will garnish the excitement needed to jump out of bed in the morning and embark on your day. Without passion you will want to pull up the covers and go back to sleep.

Do not go to sleep, look back so that you can look forward.

Find your passion and live your passion; no matter your age!!!

Truly know that it is never too late to live your life with passion and purpose.  Age should never be an excuse.

  1. Good information. Lucky me I ran across your site by chance (stumbleupon). I’ve book-marked it for later!

  2. The name-callings in class continued unhindered. I ignored the “Oi Chashmeesh!” and “Abe Ainak Singh!” the best I could. The popularity I had enjoyed started dwindling the same way my eyesight had dwindled. The girls in my class, who used to be friendly to me earlier, now would not talk to me. The guys would not talk to me without making at least one reference about my “owl-eyes”. Bhaskar did his best not to hurt me, but I would definitely get hurt when I could see him smiling when he thought I was not looking, when the others cracked jokes about me behind my back. I knew that, the specs I hated so much had to become a part of my personality, and I had to adapt to them the way a defeated warrior accepts his fate.

  3. Pleased to meet you! My name is Gabrielle. What I love doing is bungee jumping and I’ll be starting something else along with it. For years I’ve been working as a library assistant and I’m doing pretty good financially. South Carolina is where my home is and I love every day living here. See what’s new on my website here: Rune

  4. Elise,

    All good stuff above – Great recommendations from learned insight, indeed!

    Love the use of the audio version of the blog post!!


  5. There is realistic expectation (at this time, a blind person can not fly a commercial jet so perhaps a blind person should seek a different goal) but so much that holds us back is fear and not true limitation. With passion, limitations will hopefully drop away.

    1. We sometimes get so lost in the fear that we lose track of what the real limitations are and what the imagined limitations are. I will hope that everyone has passion. 🙂
