I’m in the process of creating a ‘signature talk.’
I am setting my intention to be ready to provide my own webinar or even speak at an event somewhere. The problem comes when I need to figure out what I want to talk about. What am I passionate about?
I’m passionate about helping people tap into their own brilliance and see their own possibilities. I’m passionate about helping people find and follow their dreams. I’m passionate about teaching spiritual principles. And yet, this passion doesn’t quite make for a good (and succinct) signature talk because this passion is too broad.
I read this quote from Ernest Holmes yesterday:
“We should never watch to see what another is doing or how he is doing it, for when we do this we are limiting our own possibilities to the range of another’s vision. Principle is not bound by precedent, and our good is not limited or conditioned by any good that has ever been manifest. We should confidently expect a greater good than we have ever experienced, or than we have ever known of anyone experiencing.”
I don’t know how many times I’ve read that before, but it really hit home for me yesterday. I realized I’ve done just that most of my entire life – I’ve watched others to see what they were doing and how they were doing it and chose a goal or a vision based on that. Or, I’ve allowed the goals and dreams of my family to become my own goals and dreams.
In other words, I’ve been limiting my own possibilities.
Of course, deep down I knew that already. Why do you think my Facebook page is called Possibility Dr.? Why do you think I end all of my talks with the words “opening our hearts and minds to infinite possibilities?” Because, I need the reminder!
So, how can I narrow down my passion for helping people recognize and embrace their own greatness (feel free to comment below)? I’ve decided I’m going to start with the basics: goals.
Goals? Sort of boring and not too sexy, right?
One of the common themes I find during my coaching is that we have problems with goals, especially those goals related to our purpose and our passion. Not the goals that are “to-do’s”, but the juicy ones that get us excited. The goals that are tied into our values, our essence, and our genius.
It’s as if we have a mental block and refuse to acknowledge our gifts.
And it shows up as half-assed goals that don’t rock our world. And I’m quite good at helping people unearth that brilliance and help them identify the passion that might have been buried.

Yesterday, I asked 5 questions to help us think outside the box and to focus our mind in a different direction. See if any of these questions are helpful for you:
Give some thought to these questions and see if they don’t pique your interest and help shed some clarity on your own passion. And remember these words by Nelson Mandela:
"There is no passion to be found playing small--in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living."
Until next time....
Have some fun, stay aware, and rock on!
