Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Hello!

Are you following your passion?

There’s a lot of talk about discovering your gifts and finding your passion these days.  In fact, following your dream through creating a dream job seems to have become a national pastime.  When I started The Called Woman Conference and wrote the book, The Call: Perfect Dream, Imperfect Life in 2012, it was a relatively new concept and hadn’t quite reached the fever pitch of today.  Now the whole world seems to have incorporated the idea into a search for a fulfilling career and lifestyle. 

However, knowing there is the possibility of a more fulfilling life and making the necessary changes to make it happen are two different events.  I still talk with a lot of clients who feel stuck.  They know they are unhappy where they are but don’t see a way out. They have a dream but don’t know how to take it to the next level.  There are a lot of reasons, excuses really, that we all can use to avoid turning a dream into a goal with a deadline.  Here are some of the most common:

  1. Decide that you don’t really have a passion or dream. You must have been napping when God was passing out the talents and gifts.
  2. Decide that you don’t have the money or resources… maybe one day when you win the lottery. Of course that means that you will probably need to buy a ticket.
  3. Decide you don’t have the time… maybe someday when you retire or the kids are grown, then you will follow your dream.
  4. Decide your circumstances have to be perfect before you take a step and of course, you aren’t any where close to that.
  5. Decide the critics who discouraged you must be right and put more faith in them than in yourself.
  6. Decide to give in to your fatal flaw; depression, poor health, attention deficit disorder, dyslexia—we’ve all got one and how can anyone expect you to succeed when you are coping with that?
  7. Decide the one half-hearted try that failed was surely a sign that you weren’t meant to succeed and give up.
  8. Decide the past ten+ years that you’ve put into researching your passion aren’t quite enough to pull the trigger. You need to check out a few more things.
  9. Decide you’re too old to go for it now. Maybe if you’d started when you were younger.
  10. Decide you’re too young to go for it now. Maybe when you’re older and more experienced.

Have I left anything out?

Guess how I know so many excuses?  I’ve used most of them myself. 

At one point in a mastermind group that I was a part of, I voiced my concern that following my passion and creating my dream business was going to take a long time and I was already well into middle age.  What if it didn’t work out?  Wouldn’t I have wasted my time?  Know what my brilliant coach asked me? 

“You’re going to be doing something for the next several years anyway, right?  Why not follow your dream?”

So what about you?

You’re going to be doing something for the next several years anyway, right? 

Why not follow your dream? 

I’d love to help. Let’s talk: https://bookme.name/dreamachiever

 I would highly recommend Lynne as a Life Coach for two reasons, especially if you are highly motivated. The first is because Lynne has actually lived what she is teaching you!! She is a product of her own approach to living your dream–and that’s what she so wants to help you do. The second is that she is so affirming and encouraging, she believes in you–so why not believe in yourself??  Diane Calhoun

Have a great week,

Lynne

Wow you hit every excuse head on Lynne. I remember talking to a severely obese young man on a cocktail of pharmaceutical drugs who asked me what supplements he should be taking. I told him I couldn't suggest any while he was on all those drugs but I would be happy to help him lose weight so he could get off most or all of them. I told him I knew it would take several years but the time would pass anyway and at least he'd be in a better position if he started now. Sadly he never did and as far as I know he is still obese and in and out of the hospital. What your coach told you reminded me of this conversation. Great post.
