Design your life around your passion.
Now this is the gold. In other words, make your lifestyle your business. I quit TV producing to open up an organic raw vegan restaurant in Los Angeles because I wanted to eat and live a more holistic and natural lifestyle. I did a four year run with the restaurant and there were times, I would be at the beach while my employees handled my restaurant. That's the lifestyle I wanted. I wanted to be able to go to the beach and still make money. So figure out how you want your life to look like and design your passion and your business around it.
Authenticity is like the new sexy. When people are authentic, they will buy from you, they will support you, and they will follow you wherever you go. Consumers are smarter now more than ever and we want to know where our dollars are being spent, so work on your authenticity. What is authenticity? According to Norma T. Hollis, America's Leading Authentic Voice Doctor, authenticity is the key to finding your life's purpose and communicating it with extraordinary power.
Stay in the conversation of who you are, what you are doing, and what you are want.
The wealth is in the conversation, not the conversation we have via text, email, Facebook, or Twitter. Even though these are wonderful opportunities to market and advertise your business and events and projects, the wealth is in the conversation you are having with people, so stay in the conversation of who you are, what you are doing, and what you want in life. And be authentic about it.
Keep money on the mind.
Cultivate a wonderful relationship with money now. If you don’t you will surely not make a good living doing what you are doing. Cultivating a good relationship with money means you realize what money can do for you and your business and for the world. It gives you spending power to re-invest in your business, to offer more services and products to your consumers, and to live the lifestyle that you desire which makes you a happier person and people want to buy from happy people.
Know your partners. (not your competition)
Passion cannot compete, so I don’t look at what people do in my field as competition. They are teachers, lessons, people who I can network with, partner with, create joint ventures together with, etc. Know who they are and meet them. Have a conversation with them. Tell them what you are up. They might refer a client to you or a business opportunity or give you some advice.
Reach out to your Community.
From time to time, reach out to your community and get an idea of what they want or expect from you. It’s a humbling experience, but one you might want to practice from time to time.
Invest in yourself.
Attend trade shows, networking events, hire a coach, take a teleseminar, whatever it takes to keep educating yourself and learning. Learning doesn't stop with school and for an entrepreneur it is always evolving. Enlist a team of mentors, coaches, friends, etc around you who consistently offer you advice, suggestions, knowledge, resources, and information.

Tapping into opportunity is about working creatively with potential, not being limited by challenges. It’s about the glass half full and not deluding ourselves that the glass is filled with champagne. The key to realizing your own potential is tuning in to how you interpret the events playing out in your life.
It’s about acknowledging and being able to release fear and anxiety. You can tap into your opportunity by following your passion. Are we looking for the opportunities and making predictions that we can realize with our own actions? The choice is ours. It’s about thinking accurately, making calculated risks and when things go wrong, seeing the setbacks as temporary.
It’s about being innovative, flexible and resilient; being able to lift up and move forward from a fall. Resilience is the mindset that encourages sound and practical ingenuity and shines a light for yourself and others.
Twelve Tips to being Resilient & Tapping into Opportunity
• Resilience/optimism is not about sugar coating the truth. Lying gets you into trouble- even with yourself.
• Think of possibilities from different perspectives.
• Stop talking in absolutes. Eliminate the words nothing and never from self talk.
• Set specific goals that are attainable.
• When you are feeling down due to personal circumstances, take stock of your strengths.
• Lower the stakes, not the standards: Don’t have your whole life riding on the outcome of one event.
• Savor small triumphs, steps leading to the bigger picture.
• Set aside self blame and learn from your mistakes.
• Surround yourself with positive people.
• Do not read, watch or listen to the news if you become “too upset”.
• Take a few minutes each day to reflect on your feelings.
• Cultivate generosity and gratitude.
We are the only ones who can control our attitude. By focusing on what is strong and enduring and seeing our potential, we can take calculated risks and overcome challenges.
It takes an open, creative mind free from anxiety to pick up on opportunities. They are out there ready to be swept up by your radar. If you need help with this, I recommend personal transition/career coaching. I offer you the added benefit of EFT (Emotional Freedom technique) to tap away fear and discover your passion while tapping into opportunity .

Coach Ken again with a metaphysician’s view of everyday life. My subject today is following your Passion regardless of what others say.
In a previous post we talked about your passion being something that is generated from within. In other words, we do not find things that make us feel passionate, but rather, because we are passionate, we attract things and situations around which we can express that passion. Clearly, any of us who has ever expressed our passion knows we will almost always encounter some kind of push-back. Because being a passionate person will lead us to larger expressions of our interests or gifts, we are going to find resistance from those around us who are always more comfortable with the “you” or the “me” they have become most accustomed to. In her magnificently titled book, Terry Cole Whittaker stated, “Your opinion of me is none of my business”. And for me it is that ego need of acceptance that must be released if I am to unselfconsciously allow my passion to lead the way. Without any question expressing my passion around a particular aspect, or every aspect of my life is when I am really presenting my authentic self to the Universe. Any attempt to rein that passion in is simply a denial of my greatness and a huge obstacle to the flow of good in my life.
All too often the voices that would have us sublimate our passionate selves are those same loved ones who profess their heartfelt concern for our best interests. Really, it’s almost always about trying to avoid their discomfort with our brilliance.
In her first book, “A Return to Love”, Marianne Williamson famously said, “…our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” Living life with passion regardless the good opinion of others does not require their permission. If we waited on the permission of others to live our lives from the heart – out loud - we would be waiting a very long time. You arrived in this place with all the permission you will ever need, to express your most passionate self in every aspect of your existence.
As the old saying goes, “Sing like nobody’s listening and dance like nobody’s watching”.
