20 Aug The Multi-Passionate HustleHER
I'm not sure if it's "ADHD," just the way I'm made, or maybe a bit of BOTH, but I have FINALLY come to accept that I am none other than a Multi-passionate entrepreneur! Or as I prefer to say, #HustleHER!
Do you ever feel called in more than one direction? Have you ever had a hard time answering the question, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Do you get bored doing the same thing every day? Are you highly skilled in more than one area?
I GET IT! I'm right there with you!
My entire life I have been coming up with ideas, suggestions, & innovations. I constantly crave more information and have a quest to dive into something new and exciting.
As a creative especially, this topic hits home and hits home HARD! People are always telling me to focus on ONE THING. Questioning why I need to explore more interests, earn more certifications, pivot my business when I can just focus on doing one thing really well and make a ton of money?
"Why don't you put your energy into that "one thing" and then you will truly become successful!"
Sorry Sis, but that's not necessarily realistic- but second of all, it's just not the life for me.
The reason we feel called in more than one direction, and have a hard time answering questions, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Is because we think we have to choose between all the things we want to do, be, and create.
We think we have to have a business that looks just like Super Successful Susan’s, because she’s making a lot of money doing one focused thing. Because society told us we have to pick a career or a niche and hyper focus. But it’s so far from the truth. Not every business is able to be hyper focused, and that’s okay.
Stop trying to focus on one area. Stop trying to make that ONE THING your only focus. It’s not going to happen. Focusing on one thing is not the only way to be successful, and it’s definitely not the way to be happy. Trust me, let it go.
It is more than possible to have more than one passion, launch a passion project, & become wildly successful. There are plenty successful entrepreneurs living their best Multi-passionate Life right now! The key is to maintain a level of organization that both allows you to thrive passionately and reach attainable goals simultaneously. You can make as much money, if not more, than the next person by fueling off your passions.
